An armoire desk is a type of multipurpose furniture that resembles a cupboard or a cabinet more than a conventional desk in appearance. Its primary function is to serve as a place to install computers and all of its paraphernalia, with ample storage units that enable you to keep everything within. Armoire desks are available in various shapes but their doors are the one part that is different from one product to another. There are armoires whose door design opens straight out, forming a 90-degree angle. Some others come with doors that open out and to the side at a 180-degree angle. There are armoires that employ wraparound doors—the doors open out and to the side at a 270-degree angle. Still, some armoires boast pocket doors; the doors open straight (like the ones with 90-degree angle opening) and then slide into the armoire’s interior, hidden from plain sight.
Armoires are helpful in that they keep a computer and other things attached to it (cords, cables, and whatnot) tucked in so they will not become an eyesore. When needed, an armoire transforms into a compact workstation where everything you need for your work can be within reach. Once you’re done, everything is stored safely without causing distraction.
Armoire Desk Buying Guide and Other Tips
Before buying one, you need to come up with an idea of where to put the armoire in. It could be in your home office, the living room, the bedroom, or even in the kitchen. Measure the space that the armoire will occupy and make sure to leave enough space for the doors to swing. The standard armoire depth is recommended at 18 inches; this is to ensure that the computer monitor fits comfortably in the furniture. Do not forget to also factor in the things you will put in the armoire. If you are using a PC, make sure that the armoire comes with a shelf to house the PC tower. If possible, choose an armoire that bears adjustable shelving design to keep up with your changing preferences.
The armoire desk will be something someone is sitting at. With this in mind, make sure that you place the furniture at a spot that does not disrupt traffic flow. And don’t be discouraged to get an armoire just because your house is small. Tight space is enough a reason to get one because things tend to get cluttered easily in a small space.
