Kate Young , Senior Design Consultant
It was great all around. Kate was a thoughtful designer who overlooked nothing -- including making a pull out shelf less deep to accommodate cords in the back! Great eye for color and proportion. Glenn literally built a piece of furniture in my living room with almost no inconvenience. Wonderful man, great technician. Love my new custom desk with a place for everything and everything in its place. Its beautiful, too....
Fantastic experience from design to install. Kate Cullen did an amazing job with maximizing an odd but large space and she was very helpful in selecting finishes to meet my budget and personal style. Thanks again, Kate!
Kate was fabulous to work with. She always did everything she said she would do always in a timely fashion. When I made a few changes she always said "no problem I'll change the drawing" and she did and had it back to me usually on the same day. I would recommend that everyone should use Kate. She's great!
Working with California Closets was a great experience. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!
I have already told many people about my California Closets experience, especially the great designer Kate Young. We had consultations with several companies and Kate was head and shoulders above them all - in her design, the types of questions she asked us, how organized she was, etc.
Kate is Amazing!
Hi Kate - The closets are fabulous. I am so happy with the entire experience. The painter and installer were prompt, professional and clean. Your designs are perfect. I cannot believe the whole process from design to installation took only a week and that the installation went so smoothly. The quality of the closets speak for themselves and the customer service superb. We will definitely use you again and I would happily refer you to friends.
I really enjoyed working with Kate. She did a great job of designing my closet and maximizing the space.
The design process where Kate worked with me to create closets I would love. I did not feel rushed or pressured in the process.
Custom design given according to our needs. Kate took into consideration what we wanted and needed as well as giving suggestions from her experience.
The entire experience was quick, easy, and professional from design consultation to installation.

Hi Kate: So sorry for the delay - just occurred to me this morning that I had not responded - oops. LOVE the closet. Love it. Like changed me in wonderful ways love my closet. It's a process though, and I'm not ready to call it finished - on my end. Your end is completed beautifully. I love the quality of the construction, the meticulous care that was put in to the installation, the way the drawers slide, and more than anything the way it totally fits me. And for that I owe you a huge thanks. You took the time to really look at how I had my thinks arranged, how much space I would need for specifics, i.e. shoes and jewelry and long items vs. short, and you built my closet accordingly. The mirrors could not have worked out better (thank god, because I cannot believe I looked like that from the backside - so glad I am now informed and can change things up a bit!). I am over the moon happy. I am still looking for perfect fabric for the window seat (which I use often - it's amazing), the perfect old hooks, a rug, and (yes) a light fixture. It will come, but at this point, and while the boys are all running around here this summer, it could not be more fun. I'm finally getting it trimmed out tomorrow. This was a pretty big deal (always is in this house) but it is going to be gorgeous. I'll send periodic photo updates, and when it is finally finished you must join me and a few friends for wine - in the closet - to celebrate. You helped me realize this dream, and while I know it's just a closet, I feel like a princess every time I walk inside. Thank you so very, very much. You are so amazing at this!
I was impressed with the designer. She was very professional and knew her stuff. She was top notch.

Kate worked through MANY design drafts to come up with a final plan that accomplished our goals. Glenn was prompt and fastidious in his work. The flexibility of the system makes California Closets the best way to accomplish tricky storage solutions.
Our experience was wonderful - start to finish. Kate gave us great ideas and is delightful. Installation went smoothly, quietly and on time. We couldn't be happier with the outcome.
Excellent design service from Kate. Installation was done perfectly. I am very happy with the results of our bedroom closets we had done and I tell my friends and family often about how much we love the work done. I will definately use you for future projcts.
The initial meeting was great. It was nice to give details and know that my future closet would be catered directly to our needs.
