Armoires are a great storage option
Armoires have a very rich history, dating back to the 16th century. While armoires historically were used only for clothing, modern armoires can be used for computers, televisions and jewelry in addition to clothes. The appeal of an armoire is that it keeps your stored items out of sight when they are not being used.
The doors of a traditional armoire swing open to expose a storage area where clothing can be hung on a rail. Some armoire designs also include removable shelves that can be added to this space for stacking clothes and blankets. Under the large storage cabinet is usually a set of drawers for storing items like pants and undergarments.
Wardrobe armoires are great for freeing up space in closets. Just put your out-of-season wardrobe in your closet and fill your armoire with the styles you wear on a daily basis. Not only will you have more space in your closet and more convenient access to your clothes, you will enhance the decor in your bedroom with the armoire's handsome appearance.
A jewelry armoire can make an elegant choice for storing your jewelry. Like a scaled-down version of a wardrobe armoire, a jewelry armoire has drawers for rings, bracelets and earrings, as well as a section for hanging necklaces. These armoires are very useful as they keep all of your jewelry neatly organized in one piece of furniture. This makes finding what you want to wear very easy and will help cut the amount of time it takes you to get ready. Additionally, they help protect your jewelry, as everything has its own place so items won't get scratched, tangled or lost.
A computer armoire acts as both a storage device and a desk, offering both functionality and an attractive addition to the decoration of your home. When the armoire is open, it can function as a computer desk. It has a place for your computer, a printer, your software and your office supplies. It also has cutouts in its shelves and back panels to hide your computer wires from sight. There is usually a slide-out tray to accommodate your keyboard. When the computer armoire is closed, it keeps all of your computer paraphernalia hidden, so your workspace reverts to a stylish living space.
A TV armoire is designed to accommodate your television and entertainment systems. The size of your television will determine the size of armoire that you need. With a television armoire, you can store your DVD player, video game consoles and any other entertainment unit all in the same location. You can use the drawers in the armoire to store media like DVDs and CDs or video games. Like the computer armoire, a TV armoire has small cutouts on the shelf and in the back to hide cords and cable connections. When not watching your television, close the armoire doors and enjoy it as a fashionable piece of furniture.
