Utilitarian in purpose, what better place than the kitchen for a cabinet that displays dishes and glasses, holds silverware, linens, special use utensils and cooking gadgets? Wood always lends warmth to kitchen décor and nothing could be warmer than a stately wooden hutch lining a wall in a kitchen. There are a variety of hutch styles that would complement almost any kitchen design. From modern and contemporary to traditional or even antique finishes, the possibilities are endless. Furniture is an expression of you; a signature of sorts and it should always complement rather than detract. Obviously a huge ostentatious wooden cabinet carelessly stationed in the middle of the floor would be more of an eyesore than an accent, however, a smaller well-crafted cabinet scaled to fit the room can add just the right touch to an otherwise ordinary room.
These hutches are going to be an extension of the style in your dining room. This means you need to take a good note of the style you already have in play in your dining room and make sure that what you choose will fit in with the theme you have put in effect. You don't have to run out and buy some right away as soon as you know you like them. Instead, do a little research. Get to know what is out there on the market. Look at TV furnishing shows, in magazines and anywhere else you can think of to see the options that are for sale. Keep a stack of the ones you really like so you can make a list of features you want in the one you purchase.
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.
