ANTIQUE ARMOIRES THE VERSATILE BEAUTY

Give any room more character and function with an armoire. This queen of antiques is also a storage workhorse.

Armoires weren’t always synonymous with clothing storage like they tend to be now. They actually started out as a clever way to store weapons and tools. That makes sense because “armarie” is an Old French word that refers to a closet for tools and arms.

The average armoire has a little bit of everything when it comes to storage options, from lots of hanging space to shelves and drawers. If you’re interested in using this type of elegant furniture to improve your bedroom, here’s what you need to see.

RETROFIT IT

If the inside of the armoire is not configured the way you need, you can likely retrofit it. Turn it into a home bar just like this one. Ideally, retrofitting would be done in a way that allows the piece to be returned to its original condition, so as not to diminish its value as an antique.
