Peter Salerno Inc. Cabinetry: Full FAQ on Your Journey to Award-Winning Cabinets

Peter Salerno Inc. Cabinetry: Full FAQ on Your Journey to Award-Winning Cabinets

Our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc., is the most award-winning custom kitchen and bath design company in North America since 2002. A major facet of Peter Salerno Inc.’s success is the Maestro Rosolino line of world-class custom cabinetry.

Maestro Rosolino is named for Peter Salerno’s father, Rosolino, an artisan who began his cabinetry business in Sicily. Dreaming of a life in America for his family and children, Rosolino came to the United States – where his son, Peter, continued the fine family tradition of handcrafted custom cabinetry.

From the Peter Salerno Inc. website:

Peter Salerno Inc. strives to design the perfect kitchen, bathroom, wine cellar, library, and any other space for our clients. We do this by not only looking at it from an aesthetic perspective, but also from a functional perspective. Our approach is the same as a bespoke tailor; instead of designing and crafting together a suit or dress we are tailoring your home to your lifestyle. Much like a tailor with different grades of fabric, we too carry an array of options varying in quality and features to help fit your budget.

Here’s more information regarding Peter Salerno Inc. custom cabinetry, the Maestro Rosolino line, price points and craftsmanship information:

FAQ and Price Points: Peter Salerno Inc. Custom Cabinetry​

I Furniture Grade

This is our highest quality cabinet. These cabinets are entirely custom and are made to last a lifetime. They feature standard black walnut drawers, extra thick doors, extra coats of finish, exotic and reclaimed woods, and the sturdiest construction available. Every aspect of this level is customizable. All of these cabinets are made in the USA.

II Transition Grade

One step down from our Furniture Grade, Transition is a custom line offering high-quality construction without the extra bulk of our furniture grade. Available with either maple or walnut drawers and extra thick or standard doors, this cabinet can be as dressed up or down as you’d like while offering you complete design freedom. All these cabinets are made in the USA.

III Cabinet Grade

Cabinet Grade is great for tight budgets where the need for a lot of fine-detail work and custom sizing is not necessary. We base our design around semi-custom cabinet parameters to help keep your budget in check. All of these cabinets are made in the USA

IV Builder Grade

A builder’s budget is usually tight, but a great kitchen and bath design will help sell a house. Because of this we offer a quality stock cabinet while still offering our award winning design service. It’s the difference between just hanging boxes on a wall and installing a kitchen.

Design Only:

Under some circumstances we do offer a design-only service. We will take measurements (if local), or design based on architectural plans. We will provide (1) floorplan and (1) set of elevations based on our design specifications. Pricing varies depending on the scope of the project.

Summer 2016 Design Tips & Trends from Design NJ Magazine

A Return to Historic Homes

“In our disposable age when the “new” is almost always considered good and many historic houses have been lost to the wrecking ball, antiques can play an ever more important role in our homes,” Design NJ writer Robin Amster explains in the latest issue of Design New Jersey.

Robin’s point is astute and hits on a touch point for Summer 2016 style and design – sometimes, a return to historic home design is the best option. We know – the old cliche goes, “Nothing gold can stay”. But if you own something gold, why not hold it that way for as long as possible?

Don’t be afraid to keep your historic or classic home (or rooms within your home) as they are if you love them. There are always design options to modernize the space without innately changing what it is, through accessories, color scheme, etc.

Clean White Kitchen Design with Wood Accents

Design New Jersey Magazine features the very best in award-winning kitchen, bath and whole home design from just about everywhere – but primarily from in and around the New Jersey area. As such, it’s pretty common to see award-winning designers like Peter Salerno Inc. pop up in their pages and on their social media.

It’s always an honor for Peter Salerno and his team to look back on the times Peter Salerno Inc. has been featured in Design New Jersey magazine. One of these articles was in the December/January 2013 issue of Design NJ, when writer Meg Fox outlined Peter Salerno Inc.

In her article “The Art of Cabinetry”, Meg Fox interviewed Peter Salerno exclusively for Design New Jersey magazine, discussing both Peter’s gorgeous Wyckoff showroom and his family tradition of fine cabinetry and design.

An excerpt from Ms. Fox’s 2013 Design New Jersey article:

When Peter Salerno, a certified master kitchen and bathroom designer, decided to update his Wyckoff showroom, the word “update” took on a whole new meaning, he says. Triple the size of the old one and with more than double the office space, the new Peter Salerno Inc. showroom in Wyckoff is a complete design center that showcases the most advanced technology and innovative design features.

“As a child, my dream was to be an artist,” Salerno says. After being in the kitchen and bath industry for over 30 years, he feels he has fulfilled that dream by creating what he calls an “art gallery through cabinetry.” Furniture-quality cabinets are custom made, and the vignettes showcase an assortment of styles and cutting-edge designs that demonstrate the industry’s latest trends. All components—from heating to music and lighting—are controlled from a main panel, iPhone or iPad.

It’s a perfect time to look back on this article, as we’ve spent the latter half of this month discussing Peter Salerno and his award-winning Maestro Rosolino cabinetry line. Take a moment and read the full article, as well as view exclusive Peter Salerno Inc. showroom and design photos!

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Peter Salerno Inc. proudly held a debut celebration for its new transitional kitchen showroom display at its gorgeous Wyckoff, NJ showroom. The event was attended by a “who’s who” of the kitchen design, appliance and custom design world.

The new transitional kitchen vignette is not only a showcase of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning transitional kitchen design efforts, but of the new, state-of-the-art Miele kitchen appliance line. It is with great pride and excitement that Peter Salerno Inc. and Miele USA share exclusive design photos and information with you!

Peter Salerno Inc. and Miele Transitional Kitchen Design

The Island

The centerpiece of the new transitional kitchen display is a stunning kitchen island, topped with a beautiful counter designed by Galaxy Glass. The thick glass slab is embedded with stainless steel mesh for a gorgeous, clean transitional design feel, and allows the user to opt between a soft white light or color wheel display option.

The kitchen island affords comfortable seating for three on one side and is adorned by statement globe lighting which hangs from the recessed ceiling. The recessed ceiling itself is a beautiful 9-panel design painstakingly decorated with silver leaf, and features seamless custom edge moulding.

The base of the island is an ivory white custom piece by Peter Salerno Inc., featuring the astounding Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher. Simply knock, and the dishwasher automatically opens for you – no fussy latches or slamming doors! The base also includes custom cabinetry work from Peter Salerno Inc.’s Maestro Rosolino line.

The Flooring

The flooring is a beautiful, durable faux-wood concrete which was voted on by you, the readers of Peter Salerno Inc.’s official blog. Wonderful job!

The Backsplash

The backsplash, provided by the world-class artists at Stratta, the Tile Boutique, was also voted on by readers of this blog. A seamless design that appears to be one solid pre-fab piece, it is actually comprised of over 250 meticulously set tiles.

The Feature Wall

In front of the backsplash, 4 glass shelves are mounted in front of LED lighting, which presents the illusion of pure white light streaming from within the shelves. A bold stainless steel range hood design was custom-designed by Peter Salerno Inc. and crafted especially for this transitional kitchen display by the artisans at Rangecraft.

The custom ivory white Maestro Rosolino cabinetry features over a dozen drawers. 6 drawers are push-to-open (to complement the Knock2Open Miele Dishwasher), with 2 more “hidden drawers” which border the Miele range in the form of moulding columns.

The Miele 48″ range and cooktop itself is a wonder of modern technology. It features a conventional range, warming drawer and storage unit, as well as a 6-burner cooktop. The range features a wireless roast probe which communicates directly with the oven. For example, if you want to cook a tenderloin to an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit, simply turn on the oven and set the roast probe to 135. When the internal temperature of the tenderloin reaches the desired temperature, the oven will automatically shut off and alert the user that the roast is ready!

From bread to roasts, sear to bake, the Miele oven features hundreds of customizable settings to suit the needs of every chef, from amateur to professional. The 48″ Miele range also features a built-in speed oven which eliminates the need for a microwave.

The feature wall also includes a new Miele coffee maker that must be experienced to be believed! Below the coffee maker is a combination steam oven which allows user to stack cooking programs and save cooking recipes beforehand, where the user can seamlessly go in and out of cooking and steam functions or even use those functions in conjunction with each other. The combination steam oven also allows user to control the percentage of steam from 0-100% which is unique to Miele.

Each of the Miele appliances showcased in this transitional kitchen design vignette is constructed with the same look and feel- from the construction and materials to the display and functionality. Every detail is methodically crafted to provide a seamless user experience.
