Period wardrobes installed the most beautiful floor-to-ceiling wardrobes either side of the fireplaces in my two bedrooms.

Arthur and Des were prompt in replying to my enquiry and understood exactly what I wanted.

They were very helpful and detailed in explaining my options and the process to measure and install the robes.


My house is a single front Victorian cottage circa 1910 and Arthur took so much care to make sure the robes fit perfectly and seamlessly.

Their personal service and having Arthur, the owner of the business, designing and installing the wardrobes gives you a level of service and quality of finish that make the whole experience exceptional.


They are also incredibly good value for money and do whatever they can to help you. I couldn't be happier with my wardrobes and Period Wardrobes' service.


I can't recommend them highly enough - they are one of the best businesses I have ever dealt with.

The product:

Arthur of Period Wardrobes added beauty, functionality and value to our 1880's built home in Port Melbourne. We had an idea of what we wanted, but Arthur and the team provided their expert eye and advice and the outcome is perfection.


The service:

There was nothing mundane or rehearsed about the experience. It felt personalised and I was provided photo updates all throughout. The team are truly passionate about what they do and are perfectionists in both their workmanship and customer service. Des responded to my initial enquiry without delay and the start to finish process was effortlessly efficient.

                                      - Charlotte, Port Melbourne 

I found Period Wardrobes after a quick Google search - we were desperate for storage in our new house which has none. I wanted a style to complement the house (Victorian terrace built in 1880) and knew instantly that Arthur was the one for the job. Arthur and Des personally came to our house, took measurements and came up with the bespoke designs for us. They stayed in constant communication every step of the way up until our installation. The craftsmanship, attention to detail and genuine care that Arthur, Des and the team showed our house was so appreciated.


We are completely in awe and in love with our 6-door built in robe in our master bedroom and the bookshelf units on either side of our fireplace in our downstairs office. We know they’re the highest quality and will last a lifetime. As we value our books and our clothes so much, it’s only fitting we store them in the best of ways and this has exceeded all of our expectations.


From manoeuvring a very tight and steep staircase to recommending the best brass knobs for our cabinets, no detail was missed. Arthur and his team were so efficient and had it all installed in just a few hours - completely customised to our preferences. We’re so incredibly grateful, you’ve absolutely transformed our house in the best of ways. Thank you so much to Arthur, Des and the team - we’re overjoyed with your work. We can’t wait to see them painted and styled! Could not recommend enough!

Thanks Arthur for the 5 fabulous wardrobes you installed in our new Kensington house. For us, that makes a total of 7 from previous houses and 5 more for this house. We couldn't use anyone else now - there is nothing we can find fault with. Your wardrobes are quality, through and through- from design, to materials and workmanship. You install quickly from the time I give you the go ahead, your price is very fair and you are lovely to deal with.


I just wanted to tell anyone who hates their existing wardrobes, that Arthur can gut the ones you have and put his beautiful new ones in their place. He did this for 4 of these. I am excited about using my wardrobe now, as are my children and husband and the value of our home has increased significantly.

                                     - Georgina Du Preez, Kensington 2021

I am so thrilled with my new large wardrobe. Arthur and Domenic simply couldn't have done a better, more satisfactory job: timely, great service, very reasonably-priced, beautiful end result. And Arthur is a just a really great bloke to transact with. Thank you! 

                         - Jane Ellen, Coburg 2021

The best period home wardrobes you'll find in Melbourne.

I've had three rooms done with these guys and the quality is of the highest level. Arthur and the team offer outstanding customer service!


                         - Matt Stevic 2021

We would like to take a moment to share our recent experience with Period Wardrobes, to make prospective customers aware of the exemplary service levels, and quality product and workmanship that is on offer by this trusted and reputable business. This is the second wardrobe we have had installed by Arthur and his right hand man Domenic, and I cannot speak highly enough of these guys. Arthur was able to manufacture and install our wardrobe in less than a week, without any compromise on quality.


What you can expect from Period Wardrobes is the most professional tailored experience. From the initial design consultation, right through to supply and install, Arthur is true to his word and will deliver a high quality product with enthusiasm, honesty and superior customer service (not to mention a very competitive price)!


On both occasions we have been impressed with Arthur’s punctuality, ability to supply in very quick time, his attention to detail and meticulous approach. Having read through the other reviews, I can only echo the glowing feedback others have shared and have no hesitation in recommending Period Wardrobes to those considering a quality wardrobe for their home. Thank you Arthur and Domenic for making our terrace house all that more comfortable and spacious as a result of the two beautiful wardrobes in our spare room!


                         - Dimitri and Mark, Flemington 

We recently used Athur and the team at Period Wardrobes at our house in Hawthorn. We sought multiple quotes from multiple people but right from the beginning, Arthur was the most responsive and passionate about what we were trying to achieve. He surveyed our house to ensure the design was keeping in line with the period features of our house and suggested some design tweaks which came out amazing! The design, manufacturing and installation was super quick and seamless even though I made some additions along the way. We are super happy with the outcome and couldn't recommend Period Wardrobes more highly! Thanks Arthur and Dom, we will get you back for the next round again soon.


                            - Josh, Hawthorn

We were referred to Arthur by a happy customer of Period Wardrobes. We were preparing our house for auction and wanted wardrobes to suit our 11 foot ceilings. Although Arthur was extremely busy, he was able to design and install wardrobes at fairly short notice to fit in with our auction time table. The result was beautifully constructed product with many clever design features. We also took his advice and used a referral to a professional painter.

Potential buyers coming through our home have been very impressed with the finish and great storage created by Arthur and staff. We think it has added great value to our home. Arthur was punctual and friendly to deal with and the price was very competitive.

                        - Michael Augello, Malvern East, VIC

"Wow Arthur the wardrobes look fantastic!! I could not have asked for better service and product. They are the focal point of the bedrooms. The perfect compliment to the furniture and shutters. Thank you so much for your professionalism and attention to detail. They have clearly added significant value to our property. Highly recommended!" 


                       - Helen Hatzis, Northcote, VIC

"I love my wardrobes. I want to thank Arthur and team for my beautiful wardrobes. My Thornbury home has come alive. I cannot imagine how I ever survived without them. Arthur's quality, workmanship and price is ahead of the pack. Don't think about it."


                       - Anne & Mark, Thornbury, VIC 

"Period Wardrobes is a fabulous family owned company and I could not recommend them more highly. So refreshing to have people true to their word, reliable, honest, accommodating, punctual, friendly and professional. What a thorough, quality job the team did. We could not be happier with the result. And all of this for a very reasonable price. If you are wanting new robes you would be insane not to consider this company. "Thank you Arthur and the team at Period Wardrobes for what you have done for us - we feel very fortunate to have found you."


                         - Cheryl and Tim, North Carlton, VIC 

"...I couldn't be happier with the superb quality and workmanship that has gone into our robes...their attention to detail was second to none... I only wish I'd discovered them sooner."


- Judy Sneddon, Yarraville, VIC

"It is uncommon these days to deal with a company that delivers on all its promises from the design process to installation. The quality and workmanship is amazing! Arthur and his team are very professional and a delight to have in the home."


- Majella M, Richmond, VIC

What I got was excellent service and a quality product.... Its hard to find tradesmen who take as much pride in their work as the guys at Period Wardrobes...It's nice to know there are still people around who you can trust to deliver what they promise."


- Elizabeth Djokovic, North Carlton, VIC

When our friend put us onto Arthur from Period Wardrobes our dream came true.

We take this opportunity to tell everyone about Period Wardrobes so that they too can enjoy beautiful wardrobes like us.


- Maree G, Essendon, VIC

"Period wardrobes stood out from the rest with their friendly and professional approach. We could not recommend them highly enough given that it is so rare to meet a tradesman who actually cares about the quality of his work and the level of satisfaction he can give his will not get better robes as well at a very reasonable price."


- Peter, Thornbury, VIC

Thank you very much for the professional approach that was always evident in our dealings with you and all associated with your company. One month after the wardrobes have been installed, we continue to be "over the moon" with both the workmanship and appearance of the wardrobes.

We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending both the product and the company. Your punctuality was also a feature of our dealings with you; once again, Arthur, thank you very much."


- James & Andrew, South Melbourne, VIC

"Thank you Arthur and your team for your exceptional service, your quality production and installation of our robes. Your "Nothing is too much trouble" attitude and your want to please was greatly appreciated. I couldn't be more pleased with the final result, and your "trust me" assurance was something that you proved to be true...your attention to the smallest detail and workmanship is second to none. I thank my lucky stars I came across your website! Thank you once again, and I look forward to recommending your company to others in the future." 

- Michelle & Don Park, Essendon, VIC

We would like to sincerely thank you and your team for your professionalism, attention to detail, quality installation and efficiency. We really appreciate your expert guidance in choosing finishes to our wardrobes that compliment our home. From start to finish, we were impressed by the time taken by Arthur to discuss the process involved and finishes. Nothing was too much trouble. 

We would highly recommend Arthur and his team for their exceptional knowledge, design and installation for period wardrobes.  We are thrilled with the finished product.

- Catherine and Mark, Moonee Ponds,  VIC

Thanks Arthur and Paddy. We are absolutely thrilled with the two wardrobes that you installed in our new house on the weekend. They are so well built and look so amazing. This makes a total of seven now that you have done for us and we are sure to use Period Wardrobes again should we buy another house in need of wardrobes.

- Georgina Du Preez, Fitzroy, VIC

Hi Arthur, It's been a more than a few months now since you helped transform our crazy unorganised home into bliss (well we still have a lot of work to do in the clearing of clutter!) with our amazing wardrobes! I wanted to let you know I provided a review of our experience in working with you to my favorite 'home renovators' site, Houzz. You can read the review in this link. I hope you don't mind me sharing with potential renovators on how good it was working with you, and of course I put in the 'before' painting photos - but will update with new pictures of the finished paint job, once I clean up the messy rooms! Many thanks again for the very positive experience we had working with you, it's one that we'll always be grateful for. 


                      Svetlana and Nick, VIC 

We had three of Arthur's wardrobes installed in our new house (a Californian Bungalow) last year. We were so impressed with the wardrobes and with the customer service we received, which was incredibly professional and friendly (you have never met anyone as passionate about wardrobes as Arthur!) A friend had recommended the company to me and I initially stopped by the Fawkner factory showroom unannounced. Arthur and his guys were hard at work but he stopped and showed me around. He then took the time to visit our home and talk through our needs while drawing up the wardrobe plans. The wardrobes were installed the day he said they would be and we were extremely happy with the standard of work and the price, which was very reasonable. The traditional style of the wardrobes really suits the house, too. We would recommend Period Wardrobes to anyone


- Gervase McKinna & Cade Amos, Brunswick East, VIC

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are delighted with your professionalism and perfect workmanship that you have shared with us. Our home has now been touched by you and we thank you sincerely for this. The quality of the wardrobes are excellent and we couldn't ask for more Thank You Arthur for making us so happy.

 - Michael and Evelyn, VIC
