Meet Krisztian Molnar of KM Custom Flooring

Today we’d like to introduce you to Krisztian Molnar.

Krisztian, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was introduced to the flooring industry at an early age, assisting my father on various projects in Hungary. During this time, I learned the skills and quality of European craftsmanship and techniques. When I moved to the United States in my early twenties, I continued working in the flooring industry while enhancing my skills. Although I was self-employed and had various projects in Los Angeles County, I did not obtain my contractor’s license and establish KM Custom Flooring until years later. It was imperative for me that KM Custom Flooring was a company that stood for integrity and excellent craftsmanship. Our mission statement at KM Custom Flooring is “to go above and beyond throughout the entire process to ensure our customers love their new floors.” Furthermore, I strive to earn the trust of homeowners with honesty while bringing joy to others with the results my company provides.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Growing up in a communist country, I was often discouraged from pursuing my dreams. When I moved to the United States, I had little money and understanding of the native language. I had fears and insecurities that I would not be able to attain my goals. It wasn’t until many years later that I was able to build the courage to pursue my passion and start my company. At this time, I realized there was more than just craftsmanship involved; I also needed the knowledge of running a business to be a successful entrepreneur. I started to research, study, and educate myself on what this entailed. I dedicated myself to working hard, studying diligently, and persevering through other life difficulties as well. Although at times it has been challenging and lonely without my family, I am grateful I took that step to make the most of the opportunities this country has provided for me. I am thankful I can be the first generation in my family to migrate to America and pursue my passion.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the KM Custom Flooring story. Tell us more about the business.
KM Custom Flooring is a CA licensed, bonded and insured flooring contractor that specializes in installation of hardwood floors, laminate, bamboo flooring, parquet, tile, natural stone, sanding, staining, refinishing, repairs, moldings, and stairs. We provide flooring services for both residential and commercial clients throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and surrounding areas.

What’s your favorite memory from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory was growing up in Hungary during Christmas. Back home, we celebrated Christmas for three days, eating, playing and spending quality time together. Both my parents were extremely busy so this was the time when we could truly enjoy our family time together.
