By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: FlooringInterior

If you didn’t have enough time to fix your place up in time for the holidays, New Year’s is still a great goal.

Whether it’s wood, luxury vinyl, stone or new carpet, Kahala Pacific has a wide selection of products to meet your taste and budget.

Additionally, Kahala Pacific holds a free monthly seminar entitled “Wood and Stone Flooring 101” where homeowners can learn about what flooring choices are available, the various pros and cons of each, and also pick up useful tips on installation and maintenance. Best of all, if you are a graduate of the seminar, the company thanks you by giving you a lifetime lower-than-contractor discount on all flooring products.

But the biggest plus with Kahala Pacific is that it is not just another distributor, but the actual manufacturer of its own line of wood and laminate flooring. The Kahala Floors brand of engineered wood is one of the best products you will find anywhere and was developed by company president Shirley Pai Hilton. In working with flooring, she saw the need for a high-quality line of engineered wood flooring that would satisfy Hawaii’s tastes and lifestyles.

“Oak and maple are popular on the mainland, but the Hawaii market screams for more of the exotic species,” said Hilton. Woods like ipe, cumaru, tigerwood and santos mahogany are just a few of their most popular floors. Hawaii’s humidity and barefoot lifestyle also call for different specs. Best of all, there is no middleman so while you pay an “average” price, you are getting a very superior product.

Hilton said they have sold more than 1.5 million square feet of Kahala Floors products and have never had a warranty claim. “How many companies can claim that?” asked Hilton.
