Tambour Planter is the common name for metal planters that sit on top of Tambour Cabinets.

They have proven very popular with Interior Designers in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.

They are:

  • Made especially for the cabinets on which they sit,  matching in colours, materials and dimensions.
  • Elevated off the floor, so seen from all over the office.
  • The correct height for workstations and partitions.
  • A way of introducing plants without using valuable floor space.
  • Easily located end to end and when mass planted give a stunning effect and
  • Portable and easily moved from cabinet to cabinet.

We service Tambour Planters Brisbane, Caboolture and Robina at the Gold Coast.

A Variable Product

There are many manufacturers making Tambour type cabinet planter boxes, these include:

Tambour Planters vary in several ways:

  • Planter height
  • Hole diameter
  • Waterproof tray or not
  • Bark-up tray or not.

It is best we see the planters early in the project so we know what to expect.

We may need order plants in squat pots.  If they are not available we may re-pot the plants and then they will need time to recover.

We may need to order some type of waterproofing or water reservoir.
