After weeks awaiting new shipments of building materials, the staff at Rui Building Supply is celebrating the recent arrival of gorgeous new porcelain tiles in dozens of sizes, styles and textures.

“We just got a new shipment of exterior tiles, great for patios and outdoor areas,” reports Jon Xie, manager of the company’s showroom on Sand Island Access Road in Honolulu. “Add a grill, table and chairs, and a big umbrella for shade, and you have everything you need for al fresco dining with your family.”

With a spectacular selection of tile in every size and shade imaginable, many with fresh new designs and gorgeous matte finishes, Rui’s capable staff can help clients choose flooring for any area.

“The biggest tiles we sell are 32-inch-by-32-inch, perfect for large spaces that need to be covered,” says Xie. “For homeowners who don’t want to do a lot of grout work, these large tiles are a great alternative.”


Homeowners with larger projects will be delighted to hear that Rui Building Supply’s new shipment includes large quantities of the various available styles.

“We have more than 4,000 square feet available in many of these selections,” says Xie. “If you have multiple rooms that you want to tile in the same style, we very likely have exactly what you need.”

Special design tiles are also available at the showroom, with more expected in the next shipment. These lovely pieces make terrific accents in themed areas.

“They’re great for kitchens, bathrooms, even foyers and entryways,” Xie comments.

Each set consists of six tiles that can be pieced together, he adds. “They’re not printed; they’re carved, and each tile is totally unique.”


Because of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, some Oahu stores have a limited selection of building materials and fixtures these days. However, Rui Building Supply maintains an affordable selection of merchandise from flooring to chandeliers, and almost everything in between, for capable do-it-yourselfers.

Showers and bathroom vanities; apothecary cabinets; chrome and bronze towel racks, bars and rings; and sinks and basins in porcelain and glass are all available at Rui in a variety of styles. If you’re looking for countertops, you’ll find an exciting selection of quartz and granite countertops in more than a dozen shades at this efficiently packed showroom, and a variety of gorgeous LED light fixtures in both classic and modern styles, all selected with island homes in mind.

As always, remember to inquire about markdowns and sales when shopping at Rui Building Supply.

“Don’t be afraid to ask about special discounts,” says Xie. “We are always happy to help you find just what you need, at a price that’s just right for your budget.”
