The traditional armoire can sometimes be bulky and really crowd a smaller room or apartment. However, there are a lot of different styles of armoires, including utility options that many might not know about. Combining the traditional computer desk and an armoire can really be a good combination. In the end you get the best of both worlds a desk and an Armoire.
Bathroom Supplies: Bathroom supplies like shampoo, toothpaste, hair dryers, towels, shaving equipment, and so on can all be housed in armoires. You can even integrate the use of a bathroom mirror, hanging it on the inside or the outside of the armoire doors. Obviously since armoire furniture is usually fairly large, you will want to use it in bathrooms of reasonable size.
In the living room you can use an armoire as an entertainment center - to house your TV, stereo, home theatre, video games console and so on. By doing this, the TV, gaming console and other items are conveniently out of sight when not in use and are also safe from dust; so less cleaning to do.
I personally do not think that there is any other piece of furniture that is more versatile than Armoire Furniture. Whether you have just moved into a new apartment or house, need to add and furnish another extension or have just decided that it is time for new furniture in one of your divisions in your home, Armoire Furniture will definitely have its place in your room.
Armoires can also be useful for the dining room; particularly those with a transparent glass front so they can be used as a display cabinet. You can store china, crystal wear, cutlery and table ware. In the study, it can be used to store books, stationery and other paraphernalia. It is a great place to store any hobby equipment you have as well. In the guest room, the armoire can be used to store linen, extra bedding, or winter woolies when not required. Gothic, renaissance, Louis XIII, art deco and modern are some of the types of armoires you can choose from, depending upon the sort of decor you have in your home.
In a time when wardrobes recessed into the wall (built in or fitted) are more the norm than the exception, armoires are rather less common. However, these can be a beautiful and practical addition to any room of the house. Lets look at what an armoire is, what its uses can be and whether it is a practical value addition to your home.
