As with all renovation work, when you demo something, you uncover other problems. As we removed our old vinyl flooring, most of the subfloor came up with it. Once the vinyl was up, we had to head back to Home Depot for new subfloor. In total, we spent about $700 on flooring materials.
Having just aced our first pass at laying tile, we wanted to move onto the backsplash but needed a new countertop in place first. We spent roughly around $2,000 on new counters. I needed a material that didn’t require much, if any, maintenance and in a color that lightened the room.
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.
