Although part of the United States, Hawaii is like a world all its own. All eight of Hawaii’s islands typically have the same climate, which is tropical and mild. Throughout the year, the temperatures usually remain in the 80s and seldom drop below 60 degrees. Hawaii endures a wet season from October through April. Because of the mild climate, many homeowners choose a variety of flooring products. Hardwood and bamboo are both popular choices because Hawaii is less humid than other climates. Natural stone is also a good choice because Hawaii sees a lot of sunshine and mild weather, so your stone floors won’t get slippery.
Hawaiian architecture is distinctive to the islands. Influenced by Western styles, there are a lot of historical buildings throughout all of the islands including congregational style buildings and farmhouses. Simple, New England style homes are also abundant throughout Hawaii as well as plenty of larger estates built with Gothic and Renaissance styles. However, in urban areas there are modern and art deco buildings such as the Hawaii State Capitol in Honolulu.
