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 visualizing what homeowners want and how to find the best possible solution. I strive to give feasible options so that we may find the best possible solution in each circumstance.

The best part about my job is that every project offers a new challenge to create a space that makes clients feel good. I want their experience with California Closets to elevate the function and beauty of their homes, so they can love it even more!

Lylah Reid-Akana is one of the most efficient, personable and truly professional consultants I have ever worked with. I will recommend her to anyone who is looking into a closet system. The three installers were friendly and courteous and did a great and neat job. I am totally satisfied with California Closets’ products and services.

Lylah's Work 


“Lylah and Leonard did just a great job – on the intro, the design, the customer interface and the install. Very easy to work with and quite efficient in getting our needs met. Didn’t try to oversell – or sell us features we really didn’t need. Impressed with the company, California Closets, and its employees.”

- Dave A, Honolulu

"We had our master bedroom closet done first and was ‘wow-ed’ with system installed. We called Lylah to complete the rest of our closets. Lylah was very patient with us and accommodated us no matter how many changes we had. Her expertise and excellent customer service will make us come back and refer others to California Closets.”

- Ruben and Vanessa E, Kaneohe

“Dear California Closets,

My total experience with your company was beyond belief! I had two rooms refurbished. Your designer, Lylah was thorough and friendly. She made sure every detail was correct, making multiple visits and advising me with proportions for my space. Their installation men were courteous and neat. The job was completed on time and with no problems. I have recommended them to all my friends. In the future, I would like to have them redesign one more closet.”

- Pam B, Hawaii Kai

“Everything was great. I did the initial request and they called me right away to follow up. The girl in the store was really great and was very knowledgable. The designer, Lylah, was really good. She was excellent. She was very supportive, positive, and had a lot of great ideas, and she was very good with my young children. She was able to work with what we wanted. The installation was done very quickly, which was great because we were in the middle of a few different transitions.”

- Chris & Shauna H, Kailua

“Very professional from the start, from my initial meeting with Lylah, to providing product samples, ideas and great suggestions. She also added her expertise when revisions to our installation needed to be done. Thank you for creating our dream walk-in!”

-Sam & Carla K, Kapolei

"I truly appreciated the fact that Lylah and her crew listened to my vision and made it come true. The entertainment system that they've built was exactly what I wanted. I would return back to California Closets for future projects. I would truly recommend California Closets to my family and friends."

- Cathy I, Ewa Beach

“The interior designer Lylah was very professional and personable. She was also accommodating to our design wishes.”
