Kitchen supplies: Another ideas is the storage of canned goods and other non-perishables. Many of today's products come in old style packaging. Watch for these "anniversary" items, or pick some up from a local merchant or general store. Baking supplies are a great example of this, and can give your room the whimsical feeling of an old-time mercantile. Antiques: Display collections of small kitchen appliances and hand tools you have picked up throughout your searches. In a display like this, each item can become a conversation piece! If you are a collector of brand name vintage advertising, you can attach the signs you have collected to the backboard of a hutch.
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.
