Frequently Asked Questions

Do your offer free quotes?

Yes. If you are in Melbourne, we would be happy to provide you with a free design, measure and quote.
Just contact us here or call us on (03) 9793 8233.

We’ll send one of our design representatives to measure your space and design your wardrobe or cabinetry.

What type of cabinets do you do?

We design and install cabinetry for your home’s living spaces – the bedroom, living room, study and garage. This includes built in wardrobes, walk-in robes, wall units, bookshelves, desks, home office cabinets, and garage storage.

We offer a full range of design options from classic to contemporary and across a range of price points.

We do not do kitchen or bathroom cabinets so that we can focus on creating great storage solutions for the rest of your home.

How much do your wardrobes and cabinetry cost?

All our work is custom so there is no standard costs for our wardrobes or cabinetry. The cost depends on:

  • The size of your order (larger wardrobes use more materials and are more expensive)
  • The materials you choose (different laminates have different costs)
  • The style you choose (coloured finishes are generally more expensive than white)
  • Other things such as whether we need to remove your existing wardrobe, replace a bulkhead, or cut around existing power outlets

Fortunately, we are able to offer highly competitive pricing:

  • We install in over 1,000 Melbourne homes each year. This volume allows us to negotiate supplier discounts that we pass on to you through better pricing
  • We offer a full range of materials, styles, finishes so there is something to suit all budgets
  • Our design reps are experts at achieving a design you will love at the right price point for you
  • Getting a design, measure, and quote from us is free

When can I get my new wardrobe or cabinetry installed?

We begin processing your order as soon as we receive your deposit. We typically install your order 3 to 7 weeks after we receive your deposit.

Orders that include 2 pack painting or materials that require special ordering take slightly longer.

If your order is urgent, please let your design rep know or call the office on (03) 9793 8233.

Do you have a showroom?

Yes. You can find our showroom at 19 Johnston Ct, Dandenong South.

Feel free to visit during our opening hours: Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. No appointment required.

Our showroom has a range of styles of doors, laminates, handles, shoe racks, hanging space, and more so you can make informed choices. This is a great way to see different wardrobe solutions, decide what suits your style, and gather design ideas.

Can you help prepare the space where my new wardrobe or cabinetry will go?

Yes. If there is an existing wardrobe or cabinetry in the space, we can generally remove it as part of our service.

Occasionally there is structural work, plastering, or some electrical work required. Almara Cabinets doesn’t do carpentry or electrical work. When providing your quote, our design reps explain any work required and connect you with the right professionals.

How do I accept my quote?

To accept your quote just contact your design rep or call us on (03) 9793 8233.

We will then send through an invoice for your deposit so we can begin making your order. Once your order is almost ready, we follow up to schedule installation. Your invoice balance is due upon installation.

Can I get my cabinetry hand painted?

Yes. A popular and cost effective alternative to 2 pack painting is to have your custom cabinetry hand painted.

We can install your cabinetry using raw (not laminated) MDF board. You can then paint the cabinetry yourself or have professionals paint it for you.

We highly recommend Purpaint (call Daniel on 0418 547 260). We have worked with Purpaint for many years and they are as committed to high customer service and beautiful cabinetry as we are! Once you have scheduled your installation, simply call Purpaint and they will arrange for painting to occur shortly after.

Can I supply my own handles?

Yes. For hinged doors, you can supply the handles or knobs on the day of installation and we will install them at no extra charge.

To see the range of handles and knobs that we keep in stock, please see the WT Hardware catalogue.

Where is my order manufactured?

We manufacture every one of our custom wardrobes, walk in robes, bookshelves, and wall units right here in Melbourne. We have operated from our current Dandenong South factory for almost 10 years.

Our experienced team uses only the highest quality materials from the best Australian and European suppliers. The wood laminates used are from timber gown in Australia.

What payments do you accept?

We accept bank transfers or Visa / Mastercard payments.

Do you offer a warranty?
