Armoires: Are They Still In Style?

Armoires have been a useful piece of furniture for centuries. Once used mainly as wardrobes, they have taken on many different purposes over the years as our needs have changed. Though they still work beautifully as extra storage for clothes and accessories in spaces with limited closet space, they also can solve a myriad of other issues. For a while, people used them to hide their big, bulky television sets. Even though they aren’t so bulky anymore, armoires still work as excellant entertainment cabinets if your television room also serves as a sitting room.

You may be surprised by just how many solutions this one piece of furniture can solve in your home. Take a look at these inspiring ideas…
