Armoires With Shelves

Updated

Use an armoire with shelves to keep everything tidy, well organized, and… out of sight! These bad boys are ideal for clothes that don’t need hanging, but that’s not all you can use them for. In fact, you could store your linen, too. In your dining or living room, crockery or books. In your bathroom, toiletries, towels, and toilet paper. Plus, armoires are more decorative than functional wardrobes, so you’ll get to make a stronger statement.

Designer Advice:

Your new armoire with shelves can be an accent element, standing out against the rest of your furniture. However, we still recommend maintaining a cohesive feel. For example, you could opt for a different finish but handles in the same style. Match your overall decor, too. This distressed finish is ideal in farmhouse, rustic, French country, and shabby chic bedrooms.

Designer Advice:

Armoire with shelves, drawers, and a mirror

Armoire with shelves, drawers, and a mirror

This armoire packs four shelves (including two adjustable ones) and three drawers within its 80” x 48” design. One of its doors hides a mirror, too. This makes it a wise choice in bedrooms without an existing full-length mirror.

Designer Advice:

When choosing your new armoire dresser with shelves, consider your wall color, too. In most cases, you’ll obtain the best results by creating some contrast. For example, this porcelain white design would look divine against a brown, navy, or darker background in general. However, you can also use white on white to inspire a more spacious and relaxing vibe.

Buying Guide

Armoires with shelves are the ideal choice for storage in your bedroom or bathroom. These tall, elegant units come in all styles, making it easy to match your design scheme, from sleek contemporary to charming French country, while increasing your shelving space.

In your bathroom, an armoire with shelves is the perfect place to keep your towels, linens, and extra toiletries like hand soaps or toilet paper refills. Maximize your storage by investing in metal organizer baskets so you can group similar items and make it easy to pull them out when you need them.

For bedroom storage, your armoire is a great spot to keep clean laundry that doesn’t need to hang, like jeans, sweatshirts, and pajamas. If your armoire has two lower drawers, as many do, you’ll find this is a convenient location to store your socks, undies, or sportswear.

An armoire with shelves can also make an elegant addition to your living room or study, especially if it’s a Victorian or French country design that features ornate detailing and glass doors. These units are perfect for organizing your books where everyone can appreciate the magnitude of your collection.

When deciding what size armoire with shelves to get, there are three important measurements to keep in mind: height, width, and depth. Before making a purchase, estimate how much space is available for the style of armoire with shelves you want.

Ensure you have 4” of extra space available to the side of where you want to place the armoire and 3” of extra space above. This ensures your room is big enough and can comfortably house your armoire with shelves, as well as having enough space for the hinges and its assembly.

You should also consider the floor space you have in front of your wardrobe. If you have limited room to open the door due to a bed or other pieces of furniture, there are plenty of armoires with shelves that have sliding doors that can eliminate this issue.
