Like bookcases, hutches come in open and closed-in styles. Before making your purchase, consider what you will use it for. If you are a collector of knickknacks or other collectibles the open style is more suitable as a display venue. Cookbook collections, small vintage utensils and photographs could find cozy homes in one of the closed-in models. They can be as ornate or as simplistic as your lifestyle. An antique one makes a great topic for folkloric stories about its origin and previous owners. It can become home to a lonely plant or a stand for a small television or kitchen stereo system. The best thing about them is that they do not have to match anything. The front does not compete with the aluminum or porcelain veneers of the appliances. The door or drawer pulls can as simple as round knob or as exquisite as an ornately decorated brass ring.
If you were to randomly ask ten people what a "hutch" is, they would almost answer universally that it is a big wooden cabinet that sits in a dining room with dishes in it. Little if any thought would be given to the possibility that it could be a big wooden cabinet that sits in a kitchen. The funny thing is that the average kitchen is full of big furniture items. The stove, refrigerator, freezer, kitchen table and in some instances even the washer and dryer are all in the kitchen. The problem is that other than the kitchen table and chairs, most people don't envision a big piece of wood furniture in a kitchen.
Hutches stand tall against the wall, utilizing the vertical space rather than the floor space and are perfect for small rooms. Their beauty is the glass doors which gives lot of open space for display. Beautifying the open display is also an art as it should not be cluttered giving it an untidy and unimpressive look. The drawers and small cabinets of the hutch can be used for storage purpose. If you are looking for something more sophisticated then go for mirror backed hutches which enhances the beauty of the china and silverware on display. Buffets can be decorative, useful for storage and also act as server tables. They are beautifully designed with useful storage space and glass cabinets for display. They serve the best dining furniture because of their multipurpose features. They also support other home decorative items, which makes them look more elegant.
