Before purchasing any piece of furniture keep in mind several things. First, make sure you have room for a desk by measuring the length and width of the free space you have. Secondly decide what type of material you want to have the armoire made out of.Always remember that solid materials weigh more, and can be hard to move.
If you decide to buy an old-fashioned type of armoire, investigate thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales and look online as well. You may find some truly fine, almost antique pieces. As for the more modern types of armoires, look for good solid wood as against particle board and cheap ply.
Hanging up clothing, accessories and so on is the most obvious use for an armoire by placing it in the bedroom. However an armoire could be a useful and attractive addition to any part of the home.
A great desk armoire can really lighten up a room and keep computers hidden from view, and add additional storage without the bulkiness of a larger furniture piece. Much like other armoires, desk armoires are made of a lot of different materials. Classic styles and designs are made of hard woods, and are quite solid. There are some lighter options that are made of a mixture of materials, but the most sought after styles are hard wood.
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.
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.
