Jewelry armoires are a great way to store your valuable jewelry. They can keep it safe from intruders, sticky fingers and little ones who would rather play with mommy’s toys than their own. But they also add a lot of style to the home, and there are many choices for where to put them. If your master bedroom is large enough, you will probably want to keep it there, but a small or over crowded bedroom does not have to prevent you from having the armoire you want to keep your jewelry and other precious items in.
If the hallway is wide enough, the armoire can be set outside the master bedroom. This makes it convenient to access if you are dressing. If you do set the armoire outside of the bedroom, get a model that has a mirror built into the lid on the top. This will keep you from having to run back and forth to see which piece of jewelry looks best with a particular dress or suit.
Jewelry armoires can also be placed in the master bathroom if you have the room in there for it. This is a good idea when there are little children in the home that spend a lot of time in mommy and daddy’s bedroom. You can close it off and keep it a little safer. Be sure not to place it next to the bath tub or shower, however, because the humidity from the bath and shower can damage wood over time. This works best in a bathroom that has two separate areas for dressing and bathing.
Armoires can also be placed in a walk in closet for easy access and more security. They will not be in easy view if repair or maintenance people are around, and they are tucked away from little hands, too. You can also put your armoire in a spare bedroom if that will allow you to get a larger one for all of your jewelry.
Jewelry armoires are also a good place to store keepsakes, gold coins, precious photographs and even lingerie. The large drawers on the bottom are handy for bangle bracelets, jewelry that you keep in a box or other larger items that you do not want sitting out. If you keep your armoire sitting in the hallway outside of your room, you can put some photographs or a picture of flowers on top of it to make it less conspicuous.
