Creative Uses For Armoires
Armoires in Any Room
Once thought of primarily as a piece of bedroom furniture, armoires are providing stylish solutions for storage needs. As functional as they are beautiful, armoires can be the most versatile furniture item in the home.
Entryway or Foyer
In a home lacking an entryway closet, an armoire will provide a space for items like school back packs as well as drawers for storing hats, mittens, scarves, and rain gear. Instead of a cluttered looking mess by the door, the armoire provides a beautiful and welcoming focal point.
A TV armoire in the family room also makes a great entertainment center. The television, DVD player, VRC, and stereo all share one stylish home that includes a place for videotapes, DVDs and CDs. An armoire can also be a terrific place to store children's toys, art supplies, and craft projects. An organized spot for everyday items makes tidying up after playtime a snap.
