We purchased 15 solid oak stair treads that we cut to the right size for each pantry. We spent about $360 on the stair treads and another $12 on polyurethane to seal them in their natural color. We also needed wood to create the base support for each shelf and spent about $150 on that.
Also being marketed for backsplashes today are pressed metal ceiling tiles. While there's no proof that they were once a popular backsplash option, it's easy to imagine a Victorian homeowner with a few of the decorative tiles left over applying them to the wall behind the kitchen counter. Monel and stainless steel sinks often had integral backsplashes.
Rather than using square subway tile, Katie applied Heath tile in classic white. It's similar to subway tile but has an interesting hexagonal shape, puzzled together with dark gray grouting (a practical color to conceal any future dirt or stains). Custom wood shelves were made locally to break up the upper cabinets and to emphasize the beauty of the tiles. The porcelain slab countertops are a gorgeous addition to this modern kitchen. Did I mention they're basically unbreakable?
