The Peter Salerno Inc. website got a fresh face and soft re-launch recently, and the resulting layout is easy to navigate, clutter-free, and aesthetically pleasing – a nod to the hottest trends in transitional design.  The base color of the site went from black to a simple, clean white, reflecting the use of whites and neutrals as base colors in today’s transitional kitchen and bath designs.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s Mendham Design Showroom Celebrates 2nd Anniversary!

Peter Salerno Inc.’s Mendham Design Showroom Celebrates 2nd Anniversary!

Two years ago, Peter Salerno Inc. took a leap of faith and opened its second showroom – a quaint but luxurious space along West Main Street in historic Mendham, New Jersey. The move reminded Peter Salerno and his wife Tracy of the risk they took in 1997, when they opened their first showroom location in Wyckoff, New Jersey.

Since their first showroom opened, Peter Salerno Inc. has become the most award-winning North American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. Even when their re-designed main showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey, was named Most Innovative Small Showroom by KBIS in 2015, there was still a need for expansion.

With that expansion came the need for greater display space, and Peter’s business family (and actual family) began to look into a satellite showroom. That search led them to beautiful Mendham, New Jersey, a charming town along the famed Patriot’s Path of Revolutionary War lore.

The new Peter Salerno Inc. showroom (located at 5 West Main Street, Mendham, NJ) features multiple custom kitchen design solutions focusing on a blend of classic and contemporary transitional kitchen design. A rustic awning and opulent, original stained glass adorn the front window and invite you inside.

Once inside the Mendham showroom, Peter Salerno dazzles you with fresh white walls and tile resting atop custom kitchen cabinetry. This showcases the perfect blend of “new school” transitional kitchen design and “old world” custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry that is the hallmark of Peter Salerno Inc. custom kitchen design. Clients can also procure exclusive, unique pieces from the brand new EDGES custom cutlery collection.

From there, you are taken on a “mini” tour of the signature style that has made Peter Salerno Inc. the most award-winning kitchen and bath design firm in North America this century. The boutique showroom features a mix of classic and contemporary, traditional and transitional kitchen design. A large high-definition screen gives our clients a further look into the state-of-the-art Peter Salerno Inc. design portfolio.

The heart of Mendham was the perfect place for Peter Salerno Inc.’s satellite showroom, which balances a charming blend of high-end, world-class kitchen design with the charm of one of the most historic suburbs in New Jersey.

The 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party Photos

Peter Salerno Inc. held its 2017 Christmas party inside the beautiful confines of its award-winning design showroom in Wyckoff, New Jersey earlier this month. As usual, the event was attended by family, friends, associates, staff and a few very special (and very cute) guests!

2017 brought several new babies into the Peter Salerno Inc. family – Gabrielle Salerno-Mayer’s daughter Brielle and Nadya Russov’s daughter Olivia join Anthony Salerno’s daughter Jesse as the next generation of passionate designers! As you’d expect, these beautiful little ladies were the main attraction at this year’s Christmas festivities.

Of course, something that’s always a featured treat at Peter Salerno Inc. showroom gatherings is Peter Salerno’s culinary creations! For 2017, Peter made a few of his special sauces . The first two sauces was a bolognese sauce with three meats, sweet peas, shredded prosciutto and a splash of merlot. The second sauce was a metro sauce, featuring plum tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, prosciutto and heavy cream.

Peter Salerno was joined by some of his most cherished business associates at the Christmas 2017 party as well. Guests included longtime friend and photographer Peter Rymwid, Nicole Sakosits (owner of Stratta, the Tile Boutique), and staff from New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Peter is also blessed to be surrounded by his family this holiday season – his wife Tracy, son Anthony, daughter Gabrielle, daughter-in-law Eve, son-in-law Bryan, father Rosolino, and two beautiful grandchildren (the adorable Jesse and Brielle mentioned earlier).

There are many reasons for Peter Salerno and the Peter Salerno Inc. family to feel blessed during Christmas and the 2017 holiday season. The most important of all, as always, is the love and bond of family and friends, and the time and talents of Peter’s professional family.

Enjoy these exclusive photos from the 2017 Peter Salerno Inc. Christmas Party – we hope they add a little warmth and love to your day!

World-Class Miele Transitional Kitchen Display: 2nd Anniversary

World-Class Miele Transitional Kitchen Display: 2nd Anniversary

Two years ago, Miele and Peter Salerno Inc. partnered on what would become one of the foremost Miele transitional kitchen displays in the world.

On Wednesday, November 4, 2015, Peter Salerno Inc., Miele, and some of the finest representatives of the custom kitchen design, appliance and hardware industries came together to celebrate the exclusive unveiling of this spectacular new transitional kitchen showroom vignette.

The new transitional kitchen vignette was not only a showcase of Peter Salerno Inc.’s award-winning transitional kitchen design efforts, but of the state-of-the-art Miele kitchen appliance line.

Miele USA was represented by Miele USA VP of Sales Bob Fava, National Director of A&D Research Group Paul McCormack, NY Metro Regional Sales Manager Dan Gallagher, and Princeton Miele Culinary Events Manager Mary Moulds.

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.

Peter Salerno Inc.’s 20 Years in Design: Habitat for Humanity + Hurricane Katrina

How Peter Salerno Inc. Aided Hurricane Katrina Victims: Photos

This month, we’re celebrating our parent company Peter Salerno Inc.’s 20th year in the custom kitchen and bath design business. The celebration takes a look back at some of Peter Salerno Inc.’s memorable moments over the last 20 years – from humble beginnings at their first showroom to becoming the most award-winning North American design firm since 2002.

Since Peter Salerno opened his first showroom in 1997, a core value in his mission statement has been giving back to those in need. It’s a value instilled in Peter and his family by his parents and passed down through Peter and his wife Tracy to their children, Anthony and Gabrielle.

In 2006, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast of the United States. Cities and towns like New Orleans, Gulfport and Mobile were devastated by the effects of one of the most notable hurricanes in American history. It was a time for all Americans (and the world) to come together to aid one of the most vital portions of our nation and rebuild the Gulf Coast region.

Through the support and guidance of Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County (New Jersey), Peter Salerno, his family, work team and neighborhood came together to help one family who lost their home in Hurricane Katrina.

New home construction through Habitat for Humanity took place in the back parking lot of Peter Salerno Inc.’s old showroom (which stood nearly adjacent to the current Peter Salerno Inc. showroom on Goffle Road in Wyckoff, New Jersey). Peter Salerno, the Peter Salerno Inc. team and his family worked diligently to create a new home for a family affected by Hurricane Katrina. In doing so, they asked the community for help.

They couldn’t have dreamed how large the response would be.

Members of the local high school turned out to assist in the Habitat for Humanity construction, as well as members of the Westwood (NJ) High School basketball team. Anthony and Gabrielle’s current and former teachers (at the time) showed up to aid Peter Salerno Inc. in the new home construction, and family and community volunteers came together to help create a new home for a wonderful family.

We hope you enjoy these pictures of Peter Salerno Inc.’s Hurricane Katrina new home project through Habitat For Humanity of Bergen County from 2006.
