In this presentation you're going to "walk through" the process of designing and selling a walk in closet - because if you've already sold the bathroom renovation, why not do the easiest add-on ever and design the closet space?

As a Registered Storage Designer, and judge for the closet industries' Top Shelf Design Awards, Denise Butchko is going to share the thought processes and action steps she goes though in order to effectively design a simple walk in closet space. She'll also highlight the questions she asks and information she shares that establishes her expertise and allows her to gain the client's trust, so you can do the same.

We hope to see you all there!!
