Don't over do the hutch. The hutch should customize the room, not the other way around. If you have too much to display, choose to rotate the items in the display in and out of storage space as opposed to overcrowding a hutch or overcrowding a room with multiple hutches. Be sure the room is large enough to accommodate the space required for a hutch. Low ceilings will require a shorter hutch than tall ceilings. Place the hutch away from too much clutter as you'll want the piece to draw attention and stand on its own so that everyone can admire the subjects you've chosen to display.
Very practical when Entertaining Guests: When entertaining or even when having people over casually, a hutch can come in really handy. You can lay out the salad or the sweet for your guests to help themselves from on the hutch. You can even use the hutch as a makeshift bar! In case you are laying out a buffet for your guests, you have place to lay out the plates, the cutlery and glasses as well. No need for any clutter on the dining room table. Adds a Touch of Class: A hutch is an undeniably classy addition to your dining area. Sometimes the dining area may be large enough to warrant getting a hutch, without which the area may well look bare or empty. A well matched hutch complements your dining table and chairs, making a harmonious and stylish picture.
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.
