How to use item-sliding styling in non-sliding list


I have a list of items. On each item I want to show some content and then 1 button on the left with icon & text, and 2 buttons on the right with icon & text. The styling for this is perfect if I use ion-item-sliding and put the buttons inside ion-item-options. However, if I just use buttons in the regular ion-item they do not look or behave how I want.

How can I use the same styling on ion-item-options for my buttons with using a sliding list? Are there just some classes I can slap on? Can I make the slide options always present without waiting for a slide?
