The California Closets Hawaii team is passionate about creating unique, high-quality designs for your home. Our top-notch design consultants and expertly trained installers bring a wealth of experience to every project.
Our owner, Kent Untermann, founded Pictures Plus in 1986, where he led the industry in artistic framing and stylish, custom furniture design for Hawaiian homes and offices. Now, as the owner of California Closets Hawaii, he brings that same level of expertise, sense of style and commitment to local clients by offering unique, custom storage solutions.
The design process is fully collaborative and starts with you, the client, and what you envision for your living space or office. All levels of our company maintain good communication throughout the process in order to give you everything you need and nothing that you don’t. We think of you as neighbors first and customers second, and treat your homes as if they were our own.
Visit our showroom in the Kahala Mall and begin dreaming of your ideal space. Our design consultants will work with you to envision a solution that fits your needs and is unique to your home. Applying years of expertise and utilizing custom 3D imaging software, they will create a virtual walk-through, enabling you to “see” your solution before it exists.
Thanks for taking the time to learn more about us. We look forward to working with you.
I think that the peace of mind that comes along with an organized home carries over and improves all areas of my clients’ lives.I like to get to know my clients and offer a solution that is tailored specifically to their needs. When my clients say to me, “That’s better than what we had imagined,” I know I’ve done my job.
Your home is your castle!I received my interior design degree in 1996 and began working at California Closets in April of 2011. Getting to know my clients is part of the design process. I feel that listening is key to being able to visualize what homeowners want and how to best find a solution. I strive to give feasible options to see which solution best suits the needs in each circumstance.
I listen very closely to my client's needs and create custom storage solutions that reflect their lifestyle. Every client has different style and a different vision, therefore every design is unique and customized to fit their needs. My goal is to exceed every client’s expectations.
In order to understand the needs of my clients I strive to get to know them and ask just the right questions. This approach helps me to offer original ideas to each project. One key to being a successful designer is being able to offer unique solutions that may not otherwise have been conceptualized. I received my BA in Interior Design in 2001 from the Illinois Institute of Art - Chicago and have been designing in several different capacities since. I joined the California Closets team in 2013.
