Just installed this laminate flooring in our kitchen and it looks beautiful! Ordering online was easy and the shipment was delivered without incident or damage. My husband and I installed it ourselves, since we have some experience with installing laminate flooring. In just a few days we had a new floor! A major feature for us in picking this flooring was that it would hold up to our dogs toenails
and not get all scratched up. So far it has. Also, we liked the high gloss shine and the width of the flooring. It is really easy to cleanand maintain. Very satisfied! Would definitely not hesitate to purchase a similar laminate floor from Hampton Bay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nnguard This is a gorgeous floor!
We put this in our family room and it is gorgeous. We get a lot of compliments on it. Its very easy to clean and the color is not so dark that you see smudges or dirt - its a perfect medium color. We like it so much we are putting it in our dining room and living room next.

I have had this floor in my kitchen and entryway for a year now and I am replacing it. I have four kids and two dogs. I chose this floor because of its high gloss feature and high durability of laminate. And since I have laminate in all of the upstairs, I decided why not. It has not held up well at all. It does not scratch, but It shows every footprint and paw print especially in the sunlight.It needs to be cleaned constantly to keep its high-gloss shine. It does not stand up to water well either. A drop of water can not even stay on this floor for a second or the ends of the panel will warp. I would not recommend this floor for a kitchen or heavy traffic area. It is beautiful flooring and would do best in a room that does not take everyday activity.

I installed this flooring about 1 month ago and waited to write a review, just to make sure that the information that I'm passing along is true. Koa is manufactured for all types of furniture, expensive funiture. The sample doesn't do itself justice. Installed it in the kitchen area which also leads to the dining room. It dramatically changed the mood of both rooms and the look and feel can't be beat. I used a moisture barrier that has a sheet of felt underneath it and the results are great. Low eco sound and it's a "soft" hard wood floor. Easy clean but the best feature is that the joints, end to end, are beveled so it has that real plank look to it. You won't be disappointed.

We just had this floor installed a few weeks ago, and we are very happy with it. Hopefully it lasts over the long haul! It is a very pretty shade of caramel and has a lot of character in regards to the wood grain. It is easy to clean with a Swiffer and isn't so dark that it shows too much dirt. We didn't do the installation ourselves, so we don't know how hard or easy it was. However, the installer didn't complain about it, so that is probably a good sign. The quality and value of the product will tell with time, depending on how well it holds up. We haven't abused it too much as of yet, so we don't know how hard it is to dent or scratch.

This is the third bedroom that we have installed this in. The installation was easy and went smoothly.
The first two bedrooms we had it delivered to the house via UPS. It was easy, but we still had to move it from the front porch into the house. This last time we ordered 30 boxes so we saved the shipping cost and picked it up at the store. We had to wait for them to locate it in the back and then they loaded into the truck. We still had to move it from the truck to the house, but hey, we saved $80ish. I am very happy with the outcome.

We had this flooring installed by the HD installation company when we remodled our kitchen and the floor looks fantastic. However, this flooring, or at least the batch we purchased, is not durable whatsoever.
After the floor was installed we had to repair a slight leak in our icemaker so we rolled the fridge out (obviously it's on wheels), fixed and pushed it back in, the fridge wasn't out more then 5 minutes. Upon pushing the unit back we noticed that there were indentations / tracks in the floor from where the wheels were rolling adn deeper indentations where the fridge sat for no more then 5 minutes.
Another issue we have found is that it is very easy to scratch or dent the surface of this flooring. Simple things such as dropping a spoon fom the counter top has caused dents in the floor, we dropped a fork and it literally took a chunk out of the floor. We have a young child and everytime something is dropped, depneding on the mass, can cause damage to the surface. There is too much to list.
We contacted HD to inquire about the "50 year warranty" and what is covered. Once we called, the Mfg sent out an independant inspector to basically tell us these issues are not covered under the flooring warranty and it is inherent in this type of floor. So we inquired about the items the warranty covered and it only seems the warranty only covers issues found prior to installation based on the list that was provided.
So like I mentioned, the floor does look awesome but there are some significant durability concerns in my opinion that cannot be overlooked. If you have young childrenplaying onthe floor or things can tend to be dropped this flooring might not hold up.

Getting started is the hard part. Buy the installation kit with shims and tapping block to knock planks together. Shim the first row to compensate for crooked walls and tap each plank - then it's easy!
