Recently, the NKBA featured Peter Salerno and Peter Salerno Inc. in a “Profile of Excellence” article that we loved and wanted to share with you. The author, Johnna Beckmann, paints a holistic view of Peter’s success – from approach to concept through rewards and gratitude. It’s a highly informative piece that provides insight into Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-quality mission and design approach.

An excerpt from the Peter Salerno Inc. NKBA “Profile of Excellence” article:

“Being an NKBA Design Competition winner has given me and my business increased exposure and credibility,“ says Salerno. “Because of it, I’ve been offered new projects all over the world, most recently kitchen designs in both Russia and Canada.”

Several of Salerno’s award winning projects have been featured on HGTV.com and in magazines like Kitchen & Bath Design News, Signature Kitchen and Baths, Home Style, Design New Jersey, (201) Magazine and Bergen Magazine. Winning also landed him a spot in an NBC video showcasing New Jersey mansions and led to consulting jobs with White River Millwork, Inc. and Enkeboll Design. Not to mention the multiple job offers that have come about due to the award.

The award brands you a part of an elite group of designers and exposes you to an entirely new client base according to Salerno, and he encourages all NKBA designer members to consider entering the competition.”
