Sorry , These cabinets were not store bought. We had these custom built by a local cabinet maker and stained by a local Refinisher for our client . We went thru several stain samples and blends until we got the perfect shade for lighting in this space . Best wishes on your search. I'm sure there is something similar out there .

I have a whole house of these tiles. You can find them at Normax Building Materials in Tecate, Mexico. They use to deliver for a nominal fee. You get a raw tile that requires at least 3-4 coats of sealer. I have had them for 36 years and I am getting ready to tear them out. I love the look, but they have wrecked my back over the years. They are very hard to walk or stand on for any length of time. They are also very hard to keep up. They are not practical and I would not recommend them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Islas carried the soffit around the entire room, making it feel more intimate and giving her the freedom to use down lights for ambience. "With old homes, electrical is always a challenge because you're dealing with having to upgrade wiring and adding in more circuit breakers, which costs money and ends up eating into budgets," she says. Sink: Kohler; faucet: Rohl; teal cabinet color: Turtle Lake, Dunn Edwards; glass knobs: Anthropologie
7. Mixing tiles in Los Angeles. Sticking to a Spanish style, this 1920s kitchen has two different types of tile for its backsplash. Designer Erica Islas used a simple and more affordable white tile, set on a diagonal, for the majority of the backsplash. But a border of more expensive, Spanish-inspired tiles lines each wall.See more of this kitchen
