You may be one of many Hawaii homeowners who have thought about replacing an old floor or dirty carpets with new wood or tile flooring. But are you a bit overwhelmed by the choices, mainly because you don’t quite know what those choices are all about? Well, you are not alone, as there are a multitude of options out there.

“What we notice most about the people who call or come into our showroom is their great need for information,” observed Shirley Pai Hilton of Kahala Pacific Floors. “We can literally spend hours with a particular customer, educating them on the different types of wood and stone flooring, each product’s features, functions and benefits, and also give them tips on what might best suit their decorating taste. It’s an essential part of helping the customer make a decision that they will be happy with.”


For example, did you know that those lines between the planks of wood flooring are called a micro-bevel — or what its purpose is? Did you know that the top layer of wood on an engineered floor has to be thick enough, but not too thick? Do you know what acclimation is? Or what about the difference between ceramic and porcelain tile?

Hilton attempts to answer a lot of these questions at the company’s free flooring seminars. The next session will be held on Saturday, Jan. 10 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the company’s beautiful Kalihi showroom.

The program will start with very basic information on the various types of wood, stone and tile flooring on the market, and Hilton herself, a trained and licensed installation professional, will share extensive information on what a proper installation involves. She also will touch on very interesting information regarding the actual manufacturing process and subjects such as environmentally friendly products and native Hawaiian woods.



“People always walk away very happy with the information that they gain, and the feedback has been incredibly positive. If you are looking for new flooring, you should definitely attend,”said Hilton.

Home to the famous Kahala Floors line of beautiful engineered wood flooring made especially for Hawaii, the public is invited to come down and experience the beautiful, spacious showroom while enjoying some refreshments and receiving a great education in flooring choices. And most important, everyone attending the seminar will be given a free gift and an invitation to a very exclusive private sale on flooring and installation.

Happy New Year, and the crew at Kahala Pacific Floors is looking forward to meeting you Saturday, Jan. 10.
