Tile products that are ready to go, without the wait
BY ANDY BETH MILLER
When it comes to renovating and remodeling a home or pool area, customers want a tile that is both stylish and cost savvy. Enter Tile Warehouse Inc., a family owned and operated business serving the Hawaiian Islands since 1991.
Established by Scott and Joan Giles, Tile Warehouse, Inc. began on the Big Island of Hawaii with the goal of providing quality tile products that were both affordable and readily accessible to the local Island residents. The Giles’ son Allen, seeing the success of the Big Island store, as well as the growing demand for in-house ready-to-go tile products, took his love of the city and moved to Oahu, establishing a sister store here in Honolulu.
Specializing in a wide array of granite, marble, travertine, limestone, quartzite, slate, basalt, porcelain, ceramic and pool tiles, Tile Warehouse’s main strength, among many, is that they keep a constant stream of in-stock materials.
“Many customers wait to the last minute to select materials for their project, while others want the peace of mind knowing their product is here in Hawaii and ready for them to pick up, explained Giles. “Plus we’re able to offer ‘landed in Hawaii’ pricing on stock items versus having to charge customers extra for freight on special order items.”
Imagine going into the showroom, finding the exact perfect fit and walking out of the warehouse ready to start renovating that same day! With Tile Warehouse, the waiting game — not to mention the added expense — of having to order custom made products is absolutely eliminated. And for those wanting to order something special, or even customize a certain glass or mosaic, Tile Warehouse can accommodate.
The quality of the tiles and supplies themselves are also noteworthy to mention. While other competitors are busy pushing lower end items, Tile Warehouse has higher quality products due to the staff members’ extensive travels. By buying directly from manufacturers abroad, they are able to keep the costs down for each and every client. “We spend a lot of time working with factories and quarries overseas to get the best material possible for our customers,” said Giles. “Most of our supplier relationships are many years, and in some cases, several decades old, giving us invaluable access to many new products and trends as they are introduced through our network of overseas and domestic suppliers.”
From exotic slabs to versatile and stylish varieties of higher end colors and materials, and showcase supplies such as master bath, kitchen and pool products, Tile Warehouse takes tiling to the next level.
