If you are looking for a jewelry armoire, chances are you have lots of pieces of jewelry that need organizing. You also probably want to find an armoire that looks great in the room. When you initially start looking for an armoire for the sake of organizing your jewelry, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First of all it is good to know what you want the piece to look like. If you like the old antique look, then keep that in mind. There may be modern ones that look antique, but if you do not have any luck, try looking at antique stores. You can even call ahead to see if they have anything before taking the time to go there. If you want a modern-looking one, you can find many options online or at a furniture store!
Then you will need to think about the features of your jewelry armoire. There are many different types. Some have an abundance of drawers with opening panels on the side, while others have a large amount of shelves that are covered by a mirror. Some have long legs; others go flat to the ground. Some are decorated with finely painted designs or carvings while others are plain and basic, looking almost like a dresser. Your taste will determine what it will look like, but the jewelry you need to put in it will determine what features it has. If you have a collection of thousands of necklaces to organize, one with a vast amount of panel space to hang them may be ideal. If it is many rings, then lots of smaller drawers may suffice.
If you are buying a jewelry armoire as a gift for a little girl, keep in mind that many white jewelry armoires are lined with pink on the inside specifically for this purpose. She will feel like a princess when she opens the panels and drawers to find pink velvet holding all of her precious things safe and sound. If it is for a boy or a man, a black jewelry armoire may be perfect because they can look sleek and manly. They can be lined with blue or a variety of other colors, depending on what you want for the person you are buying it for or for yourself.
If you want to get a wooden jewelry armoire, keep in mind that the wood should match the other wood in the room. It does not necessarily need to be made of wood, since many are stained to look a certain way which will still match. If you are shopping for someone else, this is a good reason to go with a black or white one because you will not have to worry as much about matching different shades of wood- which can be quite difficult if you are not holding them side by side.
