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.
General Considerations: You need to keep in mind that an armoire is a tall piece of furniture that traditionally fills the same sort of role as a closet. Often armoires have one large chamber in which clothing is hung, usually on a cross bar running across the top. If you are going to decorate with armoires, you thus need to put it in an area where there is reasonable floor to ceiling height-enough to fit the piece as well as possibly put items on top.
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.
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.
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.
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.
