Here are some things to expect to discuss at your design appointment

As luxurious as it is to have endless possibilities for your custom bookshelf, it does mean you have a few decisions to make. Here are some things to expect to discuss at your design appointment:
  • Finish – 2 pack vs handpainting: there’s no more premium finish than 2 pack paint. But here at Almara we love working with our friends at Purpaint, who can do a handpainted job that needs to be seen to be believed. It’s not quite as luxurious as 2 pack but its pretty close and significantly cheaper, meaning it’s a great option for coming in on budget for an elaborate project or where it’s a spare room and the savings can be reinvested elsewhere in your home. Our designer will be able to go into further detail during your appointment, and if you’re still unsure you can swing down to the showroom to have a look in the flesh. One thing to note is that 2 pack is not all glossy but can be done in a more modern satin too. Of course you can also select from a wide range of laminates and veneers – discuss with your designer to get the full run down
  • Modern or classic – Are you after an enchanted corner to sink into your Hemingway collection or a sleek display with clean lines and bright books? Though book-filled rooms tend to feel classic, they also look great as part of a modern aesthetic… and we can do either!
  • How deep should the shelves be? Have a think about what you’ll be storing here – slim classics or oversize design books? Bulky pieces or small collectibles? This is your opportunity to take advantage of the customisability and get something that is perfect for your needs

What our clients are saying about us

Trent Bell

Almara were brilliant to deal with all the way from quotation to install. I had a particular design in mind that I was trying to achieve, and Almara were more than happy to work together to get the best quality outcome. The quality was brilliant, professionalism on point and very responsive. The install team did a fantastic job, couldn't fault a thing! Definitely use again and recommend to others.



Liz Boulton

Absolutely delighted with the built-in wardrobes and window seat designed & installed by Almara Cabinets! They seamlessly integrate with the design of the Art Deco apartment, and people have remarked that they look like they were designed as part of the original room - as they "suit" it all so well (no "add-on" type look). They are better than I imagined, the whole team were terrific to work with and I am extremely happy with the result. Reasonable pricing as well. A great company & I fully recommend.

Libby Cartledge

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Almara were responsive and prompt at every step, and were able to demolish my existing built-ins, then install the new wardrobe straight away. Great quality and great service, would recommend.




We had Almara install a built in robe, custom TV unit and home office. The design process was really collaborative and they understood exactly what we were wanting from the outset, while giving a lot of advice based on experience - and I can say I've really noticed those little changes now that they're installed. Glad I listened! The installation was quick and easy and the place was left spotless. They all look so good. By far exceeded my expectations and I'm now thinking about what else we could get next.
