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.
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.
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.
Generally, armoires should be suited to the other décor of a room. Today armoires can be found in both traditional and modern styles of all types, so making a stylistic match or complement can go in many possible directions. Keep elements like the overall shape of the armoire, its color, and the time period of its style in mind when incorporating it into a room.
Kitchen/Dining Room: Often armoires will be placed in a dining room or kitchen. You can place many common dining room or kitchen items in the armoire, keeping them out of site under ordinary circumstances and then having them on hand for use as the need arises. The armoire can house glasses, plates, knives, toasters, electric burners, miniature ovens, and so on. Keeping these items out of view contributes to the looks of either a kitchen or dining room in many ways.
An armoire pronounced arm-waar is a free standing, moveable cupboard or a closet that may have several shelves, drawers, a hanging rod, hanging pegs and perhaps a locker or two as well. Many armoires may be fitted with a full length mirror on the outside, adding to its utility. Typically it would be made from oak or walnut wood; mahogany or satinwood.
