Is a computer armoire the most useless piece of computer equipment on the planet? After all, who needs an armoire to house your computer when you can put it on an ordinary computer desk at half the price?
Surprisingly, the choice of a computer armoire is a sensible choice for many people these days. A computer armoire houses your computer safely and discreetly, along with all it’s related hardware, and allows you to make the best use possible of your space.
The modern trends in housing, including real estate prices, house design and modern apartment living, are leading us to make more of limited space. Gone are the days for many families when it’s easy and cheap to include a dedicated study or office in the apartment, and space is at a premium for many of us.
A computer isn’t the most good looking of piece of hardware, and combine a computer with wide screens, printers, faxes, endless wiring and all the other paraphernalia that goes with computers, and they can be downright unsightly.
No problem if you have a dedicated study, or office. Close the door when guests come to visit and all that clutter is out of sight.
No study? No office? What do you do to make sure your house doesn’t look like an office?
Buy a computer armoire. They are designed to be a functional and good looking item of furniture, and at the same time solve your problems of what to do with your computer. A computer armoire, or computer cabinet to some, is usually designed to house all your computer equipment in one place, in a way that is easy and efficient to use, but which can all be hidden away at the close of a door.
You can’t put your computer and hardware on a computer desk bang in the middle of the loungeroom or the bedroom can you? It looks awful. But use a computer cabinet to do so and noone would know it was even there.
Computer armoires come in all sorts of sizes and shapes and designs. Armoires like Broyhill computer cabinets or Sauder computer cabinets are specifically designed to house all sorts of computer equipment in it’s own place, with racks and shelving, and even a height adjustable pull out keyboard shelf. A well designed cabinet will have folding doors that close to conceal it all, but open and fold back along the sides to make best use of space.
And they are designed as furniture. A simple computer desk, whilst cheap, isn’t furniture. It’s just that, a desk to put a computer on, and it looks it.
But an armoire is a good looking piece that anyone would be proud to display in their loungeroom. Whether it’s a corner computer armoire, or a wall one, a narrow one or a wide one, you can get them all.
And in a choice of wood colors and finishes, either out of solid wood or manufactured wood. A solid wooden computer armoire in, say, cherry, or any one of a range of other modern furniture timbers, is a fine piece for furniture for your home, with a function.
So if you’re short on space and don’t want a computer desk stuck in your loungeroom covered in computer stuff, consider a computer armoire. They’re more expensive than a simple desk, but worth every cent.
