Choosing the finish for you hutch will depend greatly on the décor of your home. French country fairs would benefit from a painted hutch in a nice white finish. A rustic country styled home should be represented with a wood finish instead. The stain should match any other wood color in the room. For instance, if the hutch is in the kitchen and the kitchen has maple colored wood stain the hutch should be stained to match the exiting cabinets. However, if your home has wood flooring in the room where you're looking to place the hutch, try for a tone slightly lighter or darker than the color of your flooring to avoid a washed appearance.
The kitchen hutch is a great solution to the growing problem of kitchen space and organization. When fancy cabinets and hanging pot racks just aren't enough, the kitchen hutch is the answer to storing and protecting your kitchen utensils and dinnerware. Constructed with hardwood, the kitchen hutch contains compartments and shelves for dozens of storage purposes. Like its cousin the dining hutch, the kitchen hutch has drawers and compartments that can preserve your more valuable dinnerware items as well. Items such as crystal or china can not only be stored in the kitchen hutch, they can be displayed there as well. This feature is especially valuable in situations where kids or pets are present. Along these same lines, if you do not own crystal or china but plan to some day, it would be ideal to invest in a kitchen hutch as this brilliantly protective piece of furniture is one of the best, if not only, devices that will preserve your dinnerware investment properly.
An eclectic collection of dishes: A hutch can also be a great place to tie together a collection of mismatched dishes picked up at estate and garage sales, passed down from family members, or given as gifts. Use a central color scheme to connect the various pieces to one idea. The key is to space items well, so that each individual piece can be admired. 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.
