Armoire | Wardrobe

Armoires, also known as wardrobes, are standalone closets used for the storage of clothing. Designed as an essential furniture item before closets were integrated into floor plans, armoires continue to be used in as a functional and aesthetic element in bedroom layouts. Wardrobes are designed in a variety of styles, sizes, and materials with organizations that range from being only hanging spaces, to incorporating shelves, drawers, and other utility functions.

What is an armoire?

An armoire is a freestanding cabinet that is typically used for storing clothing. Armoires are sized to provide hanging space and often include additional shelves and drawers. Armoires were common pieces of household furniture when closets were not readily built into the layout of a room.

What is an armoire used for?

Armoires today are used primarily for storing clothing, though they were originally used as cabinets for storing arms. Armoires were once viewed as one of the most ornate and signature pieces of furniture in a household, but today their function has largely been replaced by closets.

How deep is an armoire?

Similar to closets, armoires have a recommended depth of 24” (61 cm) in order to comfortably hang clothes on standard sized hangers. Minimum armoire depths of 20” (51 cm) are common in more space efficient armoire designs. Armoire depths typically range from 19.5”-24” (50-61 cm).
