Moving an armoire?
An armoire is an elegant and standalone element of the bedroom with drawers, shelves, and in some models, hanging space. Apart from the bed, it is a major component of the bedroom that offers storage. It not only serves the functional purpose of storing items, but it is also an ideal decorative piece. It is the second focal point of the room after the bed.
An armoire, as elegant and useful as it may be, is exceedingly heavy as it is generally made from solid wood. The wood makes the armoire immensely difficult to move from one part of the home to another, let alone relocate to a different home.
How to move an
armoire within your home?
Moving an armoire within your home takes a lot of effort and needs proper planning. As armoires are quite heavy, they need to be moved with care to avoid damage and accidents:
Step 1: Empty the armoire
Step 2: Remove the drawers as they add to the weight
Step 3: Remove any glass elements as they are prone to damage
Step 4: Wrap the armoire in a blanket to avoid damage
Step 5: Slide the armoire to the desired location at home. You can use a slider underneath the armoire or a furniture dolly to make the move easier.
