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.
Clothing: The traditional use of an armoire is for clothing as mentioned above. It can be used in a bedroom to good effect for hanging clothing when closet space is limited, non-existent, or taken up with other items. Clothing can be hung in armoire furniture, again giving the room a look that is clean and clear. Armoires are a common piece to find in bedrooms.
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.
