At the March 22 Cabinets & Closets Conference, the session "High End Closets on a Budget" will be moderated by Joe Lonardo of Bella Systems, a Best of Houzz award winning custom closet manufacurer. A panel of top closet designers will discuss techniques to achieve greatness - while staying within a tight budget.

The session is part of the Closets Track during Cabinets & Closets 2016, the largest national gathering of home storage and organization professionals. The panel discussion follows closet designer Lisa Adams showing her high-end celebrity closets and the million-dollar closets for which she is noted. Best practices in achieving a main stream designer closet in the $20,000 to $60,000 price range will be discussed.

Among panelists is Wendy Scott, a designer with Sophisticated Storage Solutions in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The company for which Scott designs closets is also a 2016 Best of Houzz vendor, and Scott is rated as a Houzz "Influencer," defined as "a person whose knowledge and advice is  highly valued by the Houzz community."
