Containing Electronics: One popular use of armoire furniture is for the placement of electronics items like TV sets, DVD players, and stereo systems. The nice thing in these cases is that when viewing video or listening to music, the doors of the armoire furniture piece can be opened; but when viewing or listening is done the doors can be closed, hiding the electronics pieces. This gives the room a less cluttered look and draws the viewers eye to an elegant piece of furniture instead. In fact this hiding feature is one of the best traits of armoire furniture from an interior décor standpoint.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
