Storage: This is the most practical reason for getting a hutch for your dining area. Many hutches have a built in showcase area, which lets you display your fine china and other tableware or silverware when not in use. Also, your precious china and sliver ware is also protected and saved from dust and dirt and unnecessary handling and moving, minimizing breakage and damage. Additionally, various other cabinets and drawers also offer space to store other crockery and cutlery sets; even precious crystal wear and glasses and goblets.
Table linens: A neatly stacked and folded combination of color coordinated kitchen linens and tea towels can transform a hutch into a focal point of color. Canning supplies: Make your hutch reminiscent of a 1930's kitchen complete with grouped canning jars, lids, and other supplies. Mixing up unfilled containers with homemade jars of brightly colored preserves and fruits makes this especially attractive. Hopefully, this list will get your creative juices going. There are most likely items you have right now in your own home that you'd like to see on display. It's a great way for you to share your interests and personality with your guests. One piece of furniture can help to create beauty, conversation, an convenience.A favorite collection of dishes: The collection of fine china or stoneware is a grand tradition, seen in many residences from local neighborhoods all the way to the White House. Throughout history, there were families who entertained so much that guests could stay at the family home for one month without eating on the same dinnerware twice! Many people have a 2nd set of dishes or china stored somewhere in a cabinet. Why not let these pieces, often chosen for their specific appeal to our tastes, become an item of decor instead of just a storage item.
Baskets and Copper: A traditional pairing of two warm materials- straw and copper can be a great focal point for a French country kitchen. This is an especially nice contrast when a cooler color such as blue or green is the dominant one in the room. Cookbooks: A collection of personal favorites, family treasures, or junior league cookbooks from your travels is both practical and pretty. You can combine books with figurines, mixing bowls, or other kitchen-appropriate items to prevent the display from becoming to heavy. Dry Goods: Dry goods such as flour, sugar, beans, and pastas can be stored in glass containers. Be sure to use airtight containers with tight fitting lids. If desired, you can even attach the lids permanently to the underside of the hutch shelving, creating a permanent storage place for spices or other light items.
