The end of the year always seems to sneak up on us, doesn’t it? Just when we are getting the kids back to school and ourselves back into the groove, fall is here. There are already Halloween items on the shelves of the local grocery store and Thanksgiving things are not far behind.

For Shirley Pai Hilton, owner and president of Pacific Imports International, that means getting geared up for the busiest season. “People kind of drag their feet and suddenly realize that they would like to have their home look great for the holidays and that really lights a fire. A beautiful new floor, whether it be wood, stone, carpet or luxury vinyl tile (LVT), will definitely make a total change of character for your home!” said Hilton. Pacific Imports is ready to help in any way possible, from product to installation, and will even give you tips on paint colors and furniture to go with your new flooring.


Since a new floor does take time, now is the time to plan for having a gorgeous new look for the holidays. Imagine entertaining your friends and family on an elegant new wood floor or sitting on a plush new carpet while opening presents. Hilton and her staff can help you find the right product and arrange for quality installation services for all your selections. A free in-home consultation is just a phone call away and Hilton will personally come out to meet with you.

Pacific Imports has long been known as Hawaii’s source for the best wood and bamboo flooring, and more recently as home to the best engineered flooring line in Hawaii — Kahala Floors. “The Kahala Floors engineered wood flooring is definitely our best-selling product and we have never had a warranty claim on our Kahala Floors product,” said Hilton. With more than a million square feet sold to date, that definitely says a lot and the company backs it up with excellent, professional customer service.

Over the past two years, Pacific Imports has branched out and is now a full-service flooring company. If you need stone or porcelain tile, the company has a wonderful selection and is a dealer for Mohawk and Dal-Tile. Its carpet selection includes beautiful floor coverings from Royalty, UCL and locally stocked items from Mohawk and Medallion.
