Jason Qunell, Design Consultant

A diverse path has lead me to the field of custom closet, cabinet and storage design. Beginning with an architectural focus through high school, I later changed course towards product design, and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in the field. Challenged with finding work out of college, opportunities lead me towards the computer side of design. Just when it was looking like I was heading for a career in computers, my path pointed me towards the cabinet/closet industry, where I found a rewarding niche that utilizes my many talents.

Judy Tucker, Design Consultant

I've been designing closets and storage areas for 27 years.  My experience helps me look at spaces that help homeowners organize and make useful space out of their closets. I try to listen to customer's desires and wants to turn their dreams into reality. Because I've rented, owned and remodeled a home, gone from being single to being married and having a child, these many different situations help me to understand people's needs. I love the challenge of people having too many clothes and not enough space. Angles and low ceilings make spaces all the more interesting!
