Many years ago, Kahala Pacific Floors established a very simple mission statement — “Be the best flooring company in Hawaii! Everything we sell and everything we do will be in line with this objective!” Plain and simple, all employees, whether in sales, operations, or installations, are all on the same page.

The company started out purely as a wholesaler of its own lines of wood, the Bayside and Kahala Floors brands, which are made especially for Hawaii. The company currently specializes in the very popular Kahala Floors engineered products as they give you an absolutely gorgeous floor that is lower in price than you think and quite trouble-free to install. By cutting out middleman mark-ups, Hawaii consumers have been the big winners.

But being the best also means providing as many quality options to its customers as possible. When you walk into Kahala Pacific Floors’ beautiful 3,000-square-foot showroom, you will be greeted and helped by some of the most knowledgeable salespeople in Hawaii. They can point you in the right direction so that you can start perusing your flooring options—wood, vinyl, tile, bamboo, laminate and carpet.


In addition to Kahala Pacific Floors’ great wood flooring, the company’s huge luxury vinyl selection boasts hundreds of different options in both wood and stone looks.

If it is tile you want, the company has the national brands as well as boutique lines of glass and decorative tile to give your new bath or kitchen a look that is all your own. In fact, Kahala Pacific Floors is an authorized dealer for many sought-after national brands such as Dal-Tile, Engage, Paradigm, Provenza, Aquarius, Sono, Mohawk, Armstrong and Shaw, just to name a few.

“We want to be your one-stop flooring store for wood, laminate, vinyl, tile or carpeting,” said Shirley Pai Hilton, company president.

A number of years ago, Hilton also used her experience and background to obtain her own contractor’s license so that she and her excellent installers could personally install your flooring products for you.


“I can’t tell you how gratifying it is to have the homeowner be so happy with the product and services we provide. I get so many compliments about my staff that it actually brings tears to my eyes,” Hilton said. “Just take a look at our website or Yelp to see their comments.”

She is passionate about educating consumers via her Great Flooring 101 seminars, which are held once a month at the company’s showroom. Feedback is nothing but positive and attendees tell her how much they enjoyed the seminar while learning so much. Best of all, to show their appreciation, seminar attendees get exclusive private sale pricing on materials and labor.

“If you are seriously considering a new floor or just enjoy learning, I highly recommend you attend one of our sessions. I think you will agree the time was well spent,” Hilton said. The next session is scheduled for Saturday, March 16, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the company’s showroom at 926 Kohou St. in Kalihi. Call 847-7711 to reserve a seat.
