Our Team

At the heart of California Closets is our philosophy of customization. Experience has taught us that no two customers are the same. Especially when it comes to finding personalized solutions to organization challenges.

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 one of our showrooms in the Kahala Mall, Pearl Highlands Shopping Center, or in Kailua-Kona  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.

Lylah Reid-Akana, Design Consultant

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.
