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.
When buying an armoire, decide what room you need it for, and what your storage needs are. Then measure the space you have to decide on the size of the armoire. Also consider whether you want a single or double door armoire and whether you will be able to open the doors comfortably in the position that you decide to place it.

Keeping these items out of view contributes to the looks of either a kitchen or dining room in many ways.
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.
