Bathroom Supplies: Bathroom supplies like shampoo, toothpaste, hair dryers, towels, shaving equipment, and so on can all be housed in armoires. You can even integrate the use of a bathroom mirror, hanging it on the inside or the outside of the armoire doors. Obviously since armoire furniture is usually fairly large, you will want to use it in bathrooms of reasonable size.
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.
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.
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.
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.
