Armoire furniture can be used to give any room in your home, from the living room to your master bedroom, that extra touch of class and elegance. They come in such a wide range of style, from contemporary to traditional, shape and size, giving you the opportunity and freedom to chose whatever suits your individual needs. Crafted from a wide variety of woods and different finishes, they are not only versatile but they are beautiful and durable too.
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.
However, they are also more sturdy and stylish. A desk doesnt necessarily have to house a computer; it can house paperwork, office furniture and so much more. For those with limited spaces, this is a great furniture piece to invest in. No matter what interior design scheme you are going for, a good armoire can really bring things together.
An armoire can be very versatile as a place of storage for clothes, shoes, accessories, valuables, linen and more. Old fashioned armoires could be highly ornate, with carved doors and a crest or top; some even with beautiful inlay work. Some of these could be really massive - old fashioned armoires were built on the eight small men method - this means that a good sized double door armoire could fit 8 small men.
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.
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.
