Stainless Steel Back Splash & 2 Slate Foyers Part 1

The following two posts were a lot of fun to do and are great features to enhance an already beautiful home in NE Washington DC.
Front door entrance: Black slate tiles with Sterling Silver grout and an L-shaped Schluter strip to cap it off. Because I tiled directly on the hardwood, I painted two layers of RedGard waterproofing/anti-fracture membrane on the wood before tiling. So as the wood expands and contracts with the seasons, the RedGard will isolate the tile from the wood.

Here we have the same slate and grout, but this time I used a T-molding Schluter strip because the tile is level with the hardwood. Whereas the front door tile is higher than the hardwood.
