The professionals at Kahala Pacific Floors share this adaptation of a classic Christmas poem:

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas and all through the house, the carpet felt icky and was smellin’ so gross. The vinyl was peeling from lack of good care, with lots of little dimples from the dining room chairs.


But new flooring always seemed to be so far away, and the homeowners simply said, “Let’s leave that for another day.” So the children just played ‘mong the dust mites and soiling, while Mommy and Daddy for a new floor were toiling.

But suddenly they saw an ad in Hawaii Renovation, for great flooring products and professional installation! So they decided to give Kahala Pacific Floors a call, and from there, it was a very happy ending for all!

Kahala Pacific Floors would like to give you a happy ending, too, with a beautiful new floor. Whether it’s visions of wood, luxury vinyl, stone or new carpet dancing in your head, Kahala Pacific has a wide selection of products to meet your taste and budget.


Formally known as Pacific Imports International, the company’s 3,000 square foot Kalihi showroom features hundreds of different flooring choices. The sales associates are extremely knowledgeable and informative, and they offer free in-home consultations and licensed professional installation for everything they sell.

Additionally, Kahala Pacific holds a free monthly seminar entitled “Wood and Stone Flooring 101,” in which homeowners learn about flooring choices, pros and cons of each useful installation and maintenance tips. If you graduate the seminar, you’ll be thanked by getting a lifetime lower-than-contractor discount on all of your flooring products!

The biggest plus with Kahala Pacific is that it is not just another distributor; it’s the actual manufacturer of its own lines of wood and laminate flooring. The Kahala Floors brand of engineered wood is one of the best products you will find anywhere, and it was developed by company president Shirley Pai Hilton. In working with flooring, she saw the need for a high-quality engineered wood flooring to satisfy Hawaii’s needs. “Oak and maple are popular on the Mainland, but the Hawaii market screams for more of the exotic species,” said Hilton. Ipe, Cumaru, Tigerwood and Santos Mahogany are just a few of the company’s most popular floors. Hawaii’s humidity and barefoot lifestyle also call for different species.


There is no middleman, so while you pay an “average” price, you are getting a superior product. Hilton said that the company has sold more than 1.5 million square feet of Kahala Floors products and has never had a warranty claim. “How many companies can claim that?” asked Hilton.
