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.
Before purchasing any piece of furniture keep in mind several things. First, make sure you have room for a desk by measuring the length and width of the free space you have. Secondly decide what type of material you want to have the armoire made out of.Always remember that solid materials weigh more, and can be hard to move.
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.
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.
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.
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.
