An armoire is a large cabinet like piece furniture piece that has doors in front which open outward. It often also has drawers and shelves and is frequently flat on top. Incorporating armoires into the interior decoration of your house has a lot of possibilities. The following are some things to keep in mind when decorating with this type of furniture and some suggestions for their usage.
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.
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.
