Joe Salerno was recommended to us by our contractor. We have a 2,400 sq ft basement that was mostly unfinished. Joe designed the space perfectly including a gym, art room, custom storage area, living area, kitchen with an island, wine room and still enough room for a ping pong / pool table. Joe's advice beforehand, budgeting and execution of the project, and keeping us informed along the way were all outstanding - and we love our basement.
We proceeded to have Joe help us design a bar area on our main floor. The quality of the work, the design and the teamwork between Joe, the contractor and the designers made this project very smooth. Both the basement and the bar area were not easy spaces to work with, but Joe's layout and design were excellent - we especially love the leather cabinet doors and the stone front of our bar and all of the custom cabinets in the basement including a sliding partition between two rooms. It is exactly what we wanted. There were no surprises after we agreed on the price of the work.
Even after the job was done Joe called us to make sure we were happy with everything and invited us to call him if we had any questions. We highly recommend Joe Salerno.
