There is one piece of furniture that is perhaps the lost misunderstood. This particular piece of furniture has been around for centuries but so far it has held a special place in the hearts of just a few people. There is a key reason for this, and that is it’s perceived lack of uniqueness. The problem with the armoire is that it is so versatile that people generally feel they don’t need one. It fulfills the functions of so many other kinds of furniture that it can be replaced by, well, so many other kinds of furniture, however, we love the armoire and we’ve put together a short list of a few reasons why it really should be a part of everyone’s home once more. Okay, some are a little expensive, but we truly believe that they are definitely coming back in style.
In a lounge or sitting room you can use an armoire to hide a television. If you have a TV that you really don’t want to have as a feature anymore, grab an armoire and place it in there. Then you can cut out the back of the armoire and feed the cables through it. The look of an armoire is so unique and pleasing to the eye that it will hide the TV in a lovely and attractive way. It’s a perfect use for the thing, and we know that this is something a TV cabinet can do, but an armoire can do it so much more attractively.
If you have children then enjoy them. Even if you have a ton of mess. Store all their toys and games and other knock-knacks in the armoire. This way you get to have them playing in your living space without the hassle of their toys and games falling underfoot and being crushed.
The recent trend towards crafting was perhaps made for the armoire phenomenon. Countless times, women and men across the country have bemoaned the fact that they have no place to store their crafting materials. Whether it is a hobby that involves model-making, or a card crafting obsession, you can do a lot worse than use an armoire to store it all in. They are versatile in this respect, because storage is really what an armoire was made for.
Perhaps the best place for an armoire is the bedroom. This is because armoires can be used for storage. Bedrooms are notorious for having major storage issues. Having an armoire there could quite easily be the wonderful solution you need. You can store blankets, sheets and other aspects of bedding in there. You can even go the whole hog and be ultra-creative. For example, some people install a mirror in the armoire. It is a perfect shape and size for a mirror, and you will find that this helps with space too.
An armoire’s main strength is the versatility it offers. There is not much else out there in the furniture world that can offer so much storage and style at the same time. We anticipate it is about ready for its comeback.
