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 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!

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.

We invite you to come see this stunning transitional kitchen design display for yourself at the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom, located at 511 Goffle Road, Wyckoff, New Jersey. Thank you to Miele USA for its unwavering support and partnership, and Andrew Bisdale Photography for the exclusive photography!

A MUST See Visual Tour of New Miele USA Kitchen Appliances

A MUST See Visual Tour of New Miele USA Kitchen Appliances

Quality. Technology. Craftsmanship. Design. Service. Brand. Miele is world-renowned for its six-point commitment to excellence in appliances. Recently, we got an up close and personal view at Miele’s present and future… and we’re impressed.

Peter Salerno, CMKBD (the owner of our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc.), was treated to a look at some of today’s most innovative and functional appliances, courtesy of our friends at Miele USA. Peter’s guided tour came from the best possible source – Jan Heck, the President and CEO of Miele USA. Jan’s forward-thinking approach to kitchen design and innovation shines through in Miele’s latest offering of kitchen appliances.

One of the best Miele appliances on the guided tour (featured on Peter Salerno Inc.’s official Instagram account) is the touch-to-open Miele refrigerator and freezer. Perfect for transitional and modern clientele, the refrigerator and freezer unit is the perfect blend of form and function for transitional kitchen design in 2019 and 2020.

The video below showcases the innovative “touch to open” appliance, copious interior space, and sleek metallic exterior. The ease of use of this Miele refrigerator and freezer unit is astounding – imagine having an armful of groceries and being able to open your refrigerator with a single touch. Fantastic!

Peter Salerno’s love of excellent wine led his directly to the new Miele wine refrigerator, which Jan Heck presented with great pride. The sheer amount of storage available in a modestly-sized unit is tremendous. Peter describes the Miele wine fridge on Instagram as “everything you need to entertain in one spot!”.

The ease with which owners of this wine refrigerator can slide pull drawers, store bottles and control temperature is first-rate. And the functionality and “hidden treasures” in this wine fridge were wonderful – click the video below and get a peek at the hidden drawer space that’s revealed when this wine fridge’s shelves are pulled out for display!

Recently, we featured a beautiful new Peter Salerno Inc. kitchen design, complete with butler’s pantry. A recent update on that design installation showcases some of Miele’s newest appliances housed in the butler’s pantry area. Miele’s ability to offer versatile color presentations of their appliances allowed Peter Salerno to build in gorgeous, all-white Miele appliances into the butler’s pantry space to match the custom cabinetry.

What do YOU think about the new fleet of Miele appliances? Leave a comment below, and be sure to follow Peter Salerno Inc. on Instagram for the latest in world-class custom kitchen design!

Why You Should (Still) Love the Miele Generation 6000 Range

Why You Should (Still) Love the Miele Generation 6000 Range

There are many incredible, state-of-the-art kitchen ranges on the market today. We’re (still) in love with the Miele Generation 6000 Range.

Never mind that it’s the centerpiece of Peter Salerno Inc.‘s jaw-dropping transitional kitchen design in its Wyckoff, NJ Showroom (voted Most Innovative Small Showroom by KBIS). Never mind that it’s easy to pick a front-running, world-renowned appliance maven like Miele as the brand of choice for sleek and functional ranges.

If you take away the brand, the accolades and the honors, the Generation 6000 Miele Range is still top of its class.

It’s a range so incredible, Miele is comfortable referring to it simply as “The Miele Range”.

From the official Miele Range press release:

“For the first time ever, a consumer has the option to have one unifying design throughout their kitchen,” said Nick Ord, President of Miele USA. “Each piece complements the other in form and function and ensures consistent and professional results.”

The Ranges, offered in All Gas, All Electric, Induction and Dual Fuel and ranging from 30” to the flagship 48” model allow for the ultimate flexibility. Many of the innovations available in Generation 6000 can be found in the Range to create perfect harmony in a full suite of kitchen appliances. From M-Touch controls that offer effortless navigation to the ComfortSwivel handle that moves ergonomically with the motion of the user’s wrist, no detail was left out. Precise results can be expected from the M Pro Dual Stacked Burner System with up to 19,500 BTU and TrueSimmer capability and for ease of cleaning, the ComfortClean grates are dishwasher-safe.

The Rangetops, with 30”, 36” and 48” units available, deliver the ultimate in versatility – in both form and function. Featuring the M Pro Dual Stacked Burner System, users have the ability to go from sear to TrueSimmer with the turn of a knob. The M Pro Grill and M Pro Infrared Griddle available for Rangetops offer high power output, even heat distribution and constant control –allowing for the most resourceful culinary preparation.

As the reigning Most Innovative Small Showroom in North America (awarded by KBIS and the NKBA), Peter Salerno Inc. has an obligation to present new, innovative and outstanding designs, appliances and technology in its Wyckoff, New Jersey showroom. When Peter Salerno saw the Miele flagship 48″ range in person at the Oberg & Lindquist boutique appliance studio, he knew it had to be featured in his new design vignette.

“I’m thrilled to have the new Miele 48-inch range as the centerpiece of our new transitional kitchen showroom vignette,” Peter Salerno said. “It truly is the definition of modern transitional design.”

That quote, incidentally, is from Peter Salerno inc.’s Miele transitional kitchen showroom vignette launch from nearly 3 years ago. When reached for comment regarding his updated feelings about the Miele Range, Peter said simply, “The same applies.”

Need a convection oven? The Miele Range has it. M Touch display panel with a 35-degree tilt for access and visibility? You bet. Four distinct power options – All Gas, All Electric, Induction and Duel Fuel? You guessed it.

Add in a built-in wireless roast probe, MasterChef™ programming, soft and close open, and optional Pro Infrared Griddle and Pro Grill features, and you have one of the most versatile kitchen ranges ever created.

Why Is It Still So Cold? Get Warm With The Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System

Why Is It Still So Cold? Get Warm With The Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System

Hey. Mother Nature. It’s SPRING. The middle of April. Stop playing games. We’re all getting very depressed out here.

We’ve read all the theories. “Global warming is causing colder temperatures”? Look, it probably makes scientific sense, but it doesn’t make… you know, logic sense. There was an article about something called “Arctic oscillation”, which seemed promising. The theory was that global patterns had changed, based on geopotential heights, and – okay, we have no idea what any of those words mean.

What we do know is that it’s still way too cold, and we are so darn happy we have a Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System in the showroom.

When Peter Salerno Inc.’s showroom was named Most Innovative Small Showroom at the 2015 KBIS convention in Las Vegas, it wasn’t just an award – it was a responsibility. Peter Salerno understood that people would be looking to his state-of-the-art showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey, to display the latest in design trends, technological advances, and streamlined kitchen design, bath design and custom cabinetry.

So when the opportunity presented itself, it went without saying that Peter Salerno put Miele’s state-of-the-art coffee maker in the showroom. And trust us – with record low temperatures outside the showroom for pretty much all of 2018 thus far, we’re getting plenty of use out of it!

Let’s take a look at one of the highlights of the Generation 6000 Miele product line, the Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System.

From the latest Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System press release:

There are several new highlights to the Generation 6000 Whole Bean Coffee System including a new
CupSensor, EasyClick Milk System and One Touch for Two features. Exclusive to Miele, the
CupSensor automatically adjusts the height of the spout to the optimum position for different cup and glass sizes.

Whether a tall latté macchiato or a dainty espresso is being prepared, the central spout automatically adjusts to the cup’s rim and eliminates splashing. The CupSensor even reacts precisely to beverages made with milk by raising the spout slightly to make room for the incoming espresso. Also new is the EasyClick milk system, which is a dishwasher-safe glass milk flask that effortlessly clicks into place at the front of the machine. And for easy maintenance, the new Miele Coffee Systems now automatically rinse all milk spouts and hoses with water after each use.

The One Touch for Two feature allows the user to prepare two coffee specialties such as cappuccino and latté macchiato at the same time, thus reducing prep time when two or more drinks are being served. Miele Generation 6000 series is distinguished by its elegant design and remarkable innovations to deliver unmatched results that can be seen, touched and tasted. German engineered and tested to last 20 years, Generation 6000 reinforces the Miele Design for Life philosophy and solidifies Miele at the forefront of residential culinary appliances.

Peter Salerno Talks Design Inspiration At NKBA + Miele USA Presentation

Peter Salerno Talks Design Inspiration At NKBA + Miele USA Presentation

Peter Salerno scored with a well-received presentation about custom design inspiration and innovation at a recent NKBA presentation held at Miele USA’s Princeton, New Jersey Experience Center.

Peter Salerno, CMKBD, is the owner and founder of Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design company of the 21st century.  As the keynote speaker and presenter of an NKBA Mid-Atlantic function in April 2018 at Miele USA’s Princeton Experience Center, Peter’s “Where Does Inspiration Come From?” was well-attended and well-received!

Peter Salerno Inc., NKBA presentation at Miele USA in Princeton, NJ, April 2018.

Plenty of familiar faces were on hand for this NKBA/Miele USA co-branded event, including Peter Salerno Inc.’s longtime friend and colleague Mary A. Moulds, Culinary Events Manager at Miele USA. Peter Salerno noted it was ‘humbling’ to see such a turnout for the event, with many attendees taking the time to speak to him personally both before and after the presentation.

Peter’s presentation was accompanied by visual examples of his design inspirations, followed by each inspiration’s final creation. One of the more stunning examples shown during the keynote speech was that of seagulls drifting through the ocean air, and how Peter Salerno turned that image into a stunning kitchen design innovation – embedded LED animation of seagulls over crashing waves, displayed in a kitchen island countertop.

Peter Salerno also noted the warmth of his reception – not just by the attendees of the event, but by the representatives of Miele USA and the NKBA. It’s not always easy speaking publicly, but Peter and his team remarked how at ease they were made to feel at the spacious Miele USA Princeton Experience Center, and what a blast they had in general! By the end of the evening, everyone in attendance was sharing in refreshments, chatting like old friends, taking pictures and having a blast!

The event was a beautiful marriage of three stunning brands. When an internationally-acclaimed award-winning designer speaks at a function held by the National Kitchen + Bath Association, held inside a world-class Miele USA Experience Center, you know you’ve created something special.

We hope you enjoy these exclusive photos from the Miele USA and NKBA Mid-Atlantic event, “Where Does Inspiration Come From?”, featuring Peter Salerno of Peter Salerno Inc.!
