Welcome to California Closets Alberta!
California Closets has been serving residents of Alberta since 1984 - that's more than 25 years of nonstop custom storage solutions. We provide you with an expanse of expertise in the storage industry, and a high quality, wide range of product choices. We also think it's very important to give you a real-life picture of what the products will look like in your home. We encourage you to come and see one of our showrooms, where designs truly come to life.
We have two showroom locations in Edmonton and one in Calgary. Our Edmonton showrooms service Central and Northern Alberta, including Red Deer and Fort McMurray, while our Calgary showroom services Southern Alberta.
The dynamic husband-and-wife team of Cameron Johnson and Joelle McLaren have owned and operated the California Closets Edmonton franchise since 2004 and purchased the Calgary franchise in 2011.
How do they feel about it? Hear it from them: "We are passionate about helping people find a solution to their homes. There is nothing more rewarding than working with customers to develop a solution that fits their needs perfectly and then touching base with them when the project is completed. We can now offer that same high-quality service and craftmanship to the entire province. We couldn't be happier to have added Calgary and Southern Alberta into the fold."
"Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design."- Charles Eames. Congratulations! In recognizing this need in your space, you are well on your way to the solution! This is the first step, as well as the reason most people contact California Closets.
I love working with my clients while discovering a need for their storage solution and building a positive relationship. Seeing a smile on their face when the designs are presented shows me that I have accomplished their goals and values through the project. With a certificate in Interior Decorating, my experience will be an asset in providing practical and professional storage solutions.
I love what I do! For as long as I can remember I have been imagining, creating, designing and organizing. I have a diploma in Interior Design and years of experience working with clients to ensure that their vision becomes a reality. I am proud to work for California Closets – design excellence, exceptional storage solutions, unique and quality products, professionally trained staff, and incomparable customer service.
My philosophy in working with customers is to always first try to understand the needs and motivation for the change. By having a firm understanding of the challenges we then can begin to work on creating solutions. I value building strong, long lasting relationships with everyone that I work with. I also believe that getting organized in everything that we do...starts at home.
I love working with people on a one-on-one basis to help de-clutter their lives and maximize the storage space in their homes. There is nothing better than seeing a client excited about a space designed just for them! One of our strenghts at California Closets is listening to our customers, learning about their lifestyle, and designing a solution that fits their life perfectly. Most people have much more room than they think they have. It's my job to unlock the hidden storage potential.
Helping people simplify their lives with a California Closets storage solution makes me happy. I can see it in their body language. There is a palpable sense of satisfaction and joy and from that point the de-cluttering becomes contagious. I like to get to know the needs of clients, how they operate, and how they function. In a sense, the advent of a design comes from “walking a day in their shoes” - and at the end of the day they get to put those shoes in a nice closet
Each client has a unique laundry list of wants and needs - no pun intended. It is my job to help determine those wants and needs, and bring to life a custom storage solution that fulfills both form and functionality. "Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."
I am proud to work for such a customer focused company, whose people and systems are all designed to create the best possible purchasing experience, and to provide you with care throughout the life of your products. As your life changes we can help you to adapt, and grow with you.
My approach with clients is one of simplicity and understanding. Being able to relate to the client on numerous levels is something I strive for. I was part of the installation team for three years prior to joining the design team in 2010, so I have a very unique perspective, having now worked both ends of the spectrum.
I listen to my clients with the intent that their home is my own and strive to create a functional beautiful design. It is what I want in my home and what I feel my clients deserve.
I love that every day I get to work on a new and unique project. No day is ever the same. I am very fortunate to be able to work in and field and career that never feels like work! I treat every new client with a fresh perspective. Everyone is an individual with unique taste.
I love working with people and I want to make sure that I give every customer a quality design solution that fits their unique space and way of life. When I have a happy customer I know I have done my job right. I have always had a passion and eye for design and my job here at California Closets allows me to collaborate with people in a meaningful way that will change the way they live.
Everyday is a new challenge and I find it very rewarding to meet with clients in their homes to help organize and create spaces to truly enjoy. Finding a place for everything and solutions to everyday needs is my goal and I strive to make the California Closets experience seamless and unique for each of my clients.
Working with California Closets enables me to get to know my clients, and to help determine what their needs are for their storage space. I like to include my clients in the design process which gives the clients a sense of ownership of the design and ensures that their specific needs and wants are being met throughout the entire process. Having years of experience in the Marketing and Promotional field, helps myself and the client build a quality working relationship that will last for years to come.
My clients are amazing! Every time I enter their home I feel so honored that they are inviting me into their space. This keeps me motivated to give them more than what they originally envisioned. I want to give them an experience they won’t forget so I might have the opportunity to work for them again in the future.
When people ask me what I do, I tell them I’m a problem solver. It is such a privilege to work with individuals in their unique spaces and develop the best possible solution to meet their particular needs. I have served in many roles since first joining California Closets in 2007. Although, initially trained as a Designer, I spent six years as a manager in our production department where I was involved in all aspects of the business including installation, manufacturing and product development. This diverse training and experience gives me a unique perspective and a wealth of knowledge that I bring to every client interaction.
