Peter Salerno Inc. Design Client Reviews

      • “Peter Salerno and Company are the ultimate professionals. Between Peter’s creativity and the expertise craftsmanship they produce the highest quality award winning kitchens, baths and cabinetry. Peter designed our kitchen, baths, and built-ins for our new home. It was stress free and a pleasure to watch. And it turned out exquisite! We couldn’t be happier.” – Houzz review, courtesy of user giacopellirj
      • “Great Experience for sure! Re-doing a kitchen is a very long process with many decisions. Patience was worth it. It took over a year to get everything exactly the way we wanted it and Peter and his crew remained supportive through the whole process. He listened to every detail I needed and made sure in the end we were going to be happy with the final results. It is by far the most expensive room in your home to remodel but we kept in mind that it is also where you spend the majority of your time as well. My family couldn’t be happier with our space and we wouldn’t change a thing! The cabinets are very well built and the installers where awesome! Peter gives you a unique experience. He was more than just a designer in this process! He is now a friend and that is what you will get with him!” – Houzz review, courtesy of user kckeane

‘Refined Flourishes’ | Gorgeous Bathroom Design Featured by HGTV

‘Refined Flourishes’ | Gorgeous Bathroom Design Featured by HGTV

When your bathroom design makes an HGTV list called ‘30 Dreamy Kitchens and Bathrooms“, you know you’re doing something right. One of our all-time favorite bathroom designs, constructed by our parent company Peter Salerno Inc., received such an honor recently.

A quarter-sawn center island instantly makes this bathroom stand out. The rich medium brown pops against the sage green wall paint and bright white windows, custom cabinetry and trim. An excellent example of style meeting substance, the center island provides copious storage space within reaching distance of both the vanity and the slipper tub.

Can we talk about the slipper tub, by the way? It doesn’t get much more luxurious than sliding into a freshly-drawn hot bath alongside a stretch of large white windows overlooking a tree-lined backyard. We’re dreaming about sliding those windows open in the summer and enjoying a beautiful breeze while we soak in the tub.

The amount of ambient light available in this Peter Salerno Inc. bathroom design allows the installed lighting fixtures to be elegant and understated. The central chandelier piece above the quarter-sawn island draws most of the focus in terms of lighting fixtures, but we love the simple sconce work on the vanity.

“A natural stone floor is accentuated by a mosaic tile border, while sophisticated moldings highlight all the architectural elements of the space,” says HGTV.com contributing writer Chelsey Bowen. Take a closer look at the mosaic tile border; the small, intricate piecework sits in contrast with the large natural stones.

We’re interested – what do you think about the large center island in this bathroom design? Do you like it? What about the slipper tub? And which of the other 29 kitchens and bathrooms featured in Chelsey Bowen’s HGTV.com article stand out to you? Let’s have a conversation!

Cooling Off | The Cool Tones of PANTONE Autumn 2019

Cooling Off | The Cool Tones of PANTONE Autumn 2019

With all the Autumn Heat dominating this fall’s color design landscape, PANTONE had to do something to cool it down a bit.

The 5 cool tones chosen by PANTONE to balance the overall heat of the Autumn 2019 Color Trend Report are thoughtful and understated. (Even the relative vibrance of a tone called Guacamole is muted when surrounded by Orange Tiger and Chili Pepper.)

Pantone Autumn 2019 Cool Color Tones

Guacamole, Eden, Evening Blue, Galaxy Blue and Bluestone offer a bridge between the core Autumn 2019 PANTONE collection and its accompanying “Classics”. Guacamole stands a bit on its own, as Eden’s lush forest green stands a bit closer to the night sky of Evening Blue. Bluestone is a versatile and ‘quiet’ blue-gray that works beautifully in traditional and transitional kitchen and bath design. Galaxy Blue is “that” mainstay blue tone – royal, elegant and alluring.

The overall steadiness of PANTONE’s Autumn 2019 cool colors is a departure from the rest of the Autumn 2019 collection, and certainly from the Bold Optimism of the Spring 2019 Color Trend Report. Spring’s ‘cool colors’ were vibrant and commanded attention; tones like Pepper Stem and Princess Blue were less ‘shrinking violet’s and more center stage.

By contrast, Fall 2019’s cool tones are more sedate, more content to provide stability in the background. While the lush elegance of Eden and Evening Blue is evident, they’re not going to dazzle you from across the room.

And that sedate beauty is precisely what this season’s Color Trend Report needed. With firecrackers like Dark Cheddar and Fruit Dove going off all over this PANTONE collection, high-visibility cream tones like Crème de Pêche and Vanilla Custard demanding their own turn in the spotlight, and the sweet tones of Sugar Almond and Peach Pink pulling some focus, the cool colors in the PANTONE Autumn 2019 collection had to provide a quiet, complementary backbone.

Let’s take a look at the 5 cool colors selected for the PANTONE Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 Color Trend Report.

Guacamole (PANTONE 17-0530)

This transitional bath design is a gorgeous dark wood & white transitional bath in northern New Jersey. With a lot of hard work, inspiration, and teamwork (Stratta, the Tile Boutique and Stone Surfaces, to name a few), the results became truly magnificent.

‘Simple Tranquility’ is a transitional bathroom in Bergen County, NJ. The cabinets are walnut with an espresso stain from Peter Salerno Inc’s coveted “Mastro Rosolino” (TM) line of cabinets.

The tops are marble from our friends at Stone Surfaces in East Rutherford, NJ. The backsplash is glass and porcelain, and the floor is marble tile by Stratta – The Tile Boutique , Wyckoff, NJ. The hardware is polished stainless from Hardware Designs in Fairfield, NJ. All the fixtures and fittings also came from Hardware Designs, while the sconces and chandelier came from Capitol Lighting in Paramus, NJ.

5 Ways to Make Neutral Tone Kitchen + Bath Designs POP

5 Ways to Make Neutral Tone Kitchen + Bath Designs POP

How do you stay ‘on trend’ with neutral tone transitional design without leaving your kitchen or bath looking bland and boring?

It’s a question that gets asked at the beginning of virtually every transitional design project. There’s nothing more appealing in 2019 kitchen and bath design than fresh, neutral colors – but how do you turn white, gray and tan into a design space that dazzles?

Done properly, there are plenty of answers. As usual, we turned to the official Instagram account of Peter Salerno Inc. for some inspiration.

We selected 5 options that will provide an instant ‘pop’ for your neutral kitchen or bath design. They generally fall into two categories: 

  1. Eye-catching design materials and accessories; and
  2. Large lighting and/or reflective features.

Of course, nothing replaces the expertise and value of hiring a world-class kitchen and bath design firm. But every design starts in the same place: with a spark of inspiration. So before you undertake your next transitional kitchen or transitional bath design project (or before you call that design firm), we’d love to give you a few ‘starter ideas’ to base your initial design ideas around.

Are you in love with oversized mirrors? Do you love huge, statement pendant lights? Will you experiment with reclaimed tin or earthy stone surfaces?

Here are a few design ideas to get you started!

5 Ways to ‘Pop’ Your Neutral Tone Kitchen or Bath Design

1. Reclaimed Tin + Mirror Design Elements

2. Unique Stone Elements and Archways

3. Oversized Mirrors, Glass Elements + Ambient Light Sources

Graffiti Bath Design: How to Break ‘Design Rules’ + Still Create a Masterpiece

Graffiti Bath Design: How to Break Rules + Still Win at Design

Throw the bath design rule book out the window. When it comes down to it, the only true ‘rule’ of design is creating something you love.

When Peter Salerno created the award-winning, updated Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, he wanted to reserve one space that went entirely outside the box. When Peter saw the masterful graffiti-style street art that would soon adorn his showroom bath design, he knew he’d found his muse.

Peter Salerno hired a professional graffiti artist to create a bold, vibrant cityscape in the bathroom design. From a replica manhole cover in the center of the floor to colorful depictions of a metropolitan skyline and an elevated subway line, the artwork is audacious and vivid. The inside of the bathroom door is even “tagged” with notable initials, names and dates important to Peter Salerno, his family, and the Peter Salerno Inc. legacy.

Now, before anyone panics – design conventions and standards exist for a reason. There’s no reason to abandon ship on everything you know about design. However – as with anything else – sometimes stepping outside one’s comfort zone is the only way to reach new heights as an artist, a designer and a creator.

As with many of the designs we feature, the true beauty of this graffiti art bath design is in its personalization. As the years have passed at the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, the ‘tags’ on the bathroom door have filled in – with new staff members, new husbands and wives, children and grandchildren. A simple door has become a living testimonial to the Peter Salerno Inc. design family as well as Peter’s own family.

It’s important to respect your personal legacy and style while incorporating new elements into your home design, especially in frequently traveled areas like the kitchen and bath. Rich colors can still be comfortable and inviting when coupled with design elements that mean something to you.

“When I’m doing design work, it’s always important for me to personalize something,” Peter Salerno says in the video above. “I wanted to show the energy of New York City; I think that graffiti was the only way to express that properly.”

By stepping outside a personal comfort zone, a world-class designer was able to pay tribute to his family, his design team, and a city which he loves. How do YOU plan to step outside your ‘design comfort zone’ and grow? Let us know in the comments below!
