you may wish to PM me for the location.It might not be so expensive if one get the display set from its showrm or recommended to join the hbay tour. there would be discount vouchers etc during the tour. anyway,I get to know the ID when I am in the hbay tour which is held every Sat.
NB:the height of the ceiling to the flooring of my house is abt 216cm.
Hi, I also went to the industrial park in T.P to get the alumix. For the exact same system, i was quoted about half the price of what my ID quoted me. Anyway, since they are the supplier, my ID also had to get from them, so might as well I approach them direct.
i did the ximula system for my walk-in wardrobe from T.P. frankly the price are still ok compared to cupboards. (personal opinion) i was quoted about half the price of what cupboards offering. the staffs are very friendly, especially the uncles that came down to install the system. they are very patient and gentle towards the whole process.
the system cost about $4000 (includes a routating Cloth stand), without glass door. they quoted me $900 more for the glass door, which i find it too expensive. according to them, that was a "safety door"(a layer of sticker stick onto the glass)that's y it was so expensive. in the end, our glass contractor whom done up our mirrors did a set of Tempered Sliding Glass door for us. frankly, my hubby and me are quite happy with our walk-in wardrobe.
We went down to T.P Industrial Park for the Ximula system, the ppl there are friendly. The guy who served us is very nice and patient too, he explained everything to us. Drafted 2 plans of the wardrobe (1 walk-in and 1 normal /w sliding door) that we wanted, roughly quoted us a price on the first visit.
We came back, thought abt everything. Went back to him again recently confirmed wat we want and he re-quoted us again on the normal wardrobe. Price is quite reasonable and within budget, so we decided to give it a try.
The Ximula ppl are coming down to our place to do the false wall this week, so we shall see how's their workmanship and such.
ha, so i m not alone (i m oso interested in the aluminium structural system). personally i prefer the ximula over the alumix, reason being the modern and stylish aluminium framing, the flexibility of future expansion (additional of shelvings, bars, drawer units, etc.), slimness of the ximula structures. of course, it comes wif a price ($$$$).
comparing ximula & illumiflex (from cupboards), the pricing are quite close. i gaz illumiflex's xpensive bcoz itz from uk/germany (either 1). ximula, on the other hand, is costly bcoz it comes wif aluminium framing. just my views.
b it alumix, ximula or illumiflex, i gaz it shld b betta than those pieces of wooden partitions/platforms.
Hi Haruna, the false wall is the partition wall, cos the place where the wardrobe is going to be needs a partition up to hold the sliding door.
W@@T, finally the wardrobe is done. Overall is ok.. but hor, there's actually a small scratch on the sliding door (Frost part) and a small dent on the top of the sliding door. U guys think we should complain or jus let it be? Anyone of u got any recommendation on how to cover up tat scratch on the frost piece?
Well, other than the above.. everything is fine, the man who came down to install the wardrobe did a fast and neat job. The result is Good...
I did not do any maintainence on the frost part bec I am afraid the damp cloth will wipe of the color of the frost part(mine is pink and blue).
acc to my ID, he said that one must use blower to dry immediately or else there will be a mark.
dust collected inside my frosted part. I think my contractor did not use the clean cloth to wipe it before he laminated it. at least, now it is only a few spot only compared to previous one, it is worst.
Yup, I'm using their services. I have done the Display glass cabinet, Walk in wardobe, Bi Fold door with almuni frame & safely glass from best glass, kitchen cabinet and the extra cabinet which is the extra part left over by the kitchen cabinet part so I asked them to build the extra cabinet with them.
hi DodgeViper, 4got i've posted some queries on dis thread. 10q 4 sharing. BTW, how much did they charge u 4 d false partition? n 4 wat dimensions? thot they doin slidin door n structure oni, dinno they oso do partitions, hee!
i've bought my ximula. they've delivered but bcoz i've decided 2 do a false ceilin in my walk-in area s well, i postponed d installation. d installation is scheduled 2 b on dis sat. now rushin my renovator 2 paint d false ceilin prior 2 d installation.
in my view, itz worth it. coz u can unmount n mount elsewhere, which means u can reuse when u move house, reconstruct in other plcs/areas, unlike d constructed pieces of wood 4 wardrobe. then if well maintained, shld b more lastin 4 d wooden wardrobes.
I also did ask them before, but alumix only deals with system and not carpentry. the vertical poles are mounted from the floor to ceiling/or floor to wall if your false ceiling not strong enough.
the system can remove and ta bao with you but the vertical poles if already shorten cannot lengthen again.
hee, but a little difficult to dismantle and put back lor.
i also thought mine was cheap considering that my id actually quoted me $2.7 for the same thing. Then i decided to engage alumix direct, err.. imagine my id's face when he saw the alumix workers at my place.
but well, i saved $1200
is it advisable to do the walk-in wardrode after reno for the house? meaning to set up a space for the walk-in wardrode first durng reno and then ask wardrode specialist to do up the wardrode when the rest of the reno is completed.
oh wow, jumped... u saved $1.2K by engaging them directly??? then its a gd move on ur side... 4get abt ur ID's face! hahahaha
i'm sure it drove him nuts!!! heeee...
risa, FYI, my wardrobe will only b fixed up after the 7th mth, and there is alrdy a space set 4 my wardrobe. however, its not walk-in lah. 4 walk-in, i am not too sure will cause any disturbance anot, like dust etc.... as far as mine is concerned, my ID said its relatively fuss-free to install the wardrobe later.
My wardobe size of 2000+ by 1600(full height, forgot my ceiling height) with froster color sliding door is under promotion price too. it costs only $926(including of GST). The partion wall using plastercell costs $250.
Nice seeing you here.. Thanks for the info.. Have you any inconvenience using the system? For eg. When you folded your clothes and stack them up, because the sides are just two poles, the clothes will sure kinda fall if stack too high right? Is there any cons abt using the system?
yah, my id sure driven nuts. I waited till reno completed before i called in the WIW, but my ID dropped by to take a look at the touch-ups..so..
Nice to meet you here too. So far not much inconvenience. Don't really have to stack high cos i had alot of shelving.
Mine cost $1500 because I added alot of shelves and a 3 tier drawer with locks and wheels. Depending on dimensions, some are 2 tier, some are 3 tiers. wanted more drawers cos cant be hanging underwear right?
Altogether i had 11 shelves. So more shelves, more drawers means more money.
thought your wardrobe shld be bigger than mine ?
I think i paid $30+ for the set of wheels, so at least mobile lor, next time need that bar to put long dresses then can move the drawers away.
hi starz, this the only photos i have now unless you want the drawings, i have to find a scanner to transfer it.
