Smaller kitchen spaces, remodeling, receiving antiques: all reasons for having hutches. Contemporary hutches are generally made in two pieces and then placed together prior to delivery or shipping, depending on the brand and prices. The prices will vary, but the most expensive models of dining room hutches are made of cherry or oak, and are one piece and very heavy where weight is concerned. If you purchase a model that requires assembly, it is advisable that help be sought due to the weight of the finished product. Although there are some models that come in simple pressboard that have a laminate covering, these are few and far between and are not as reliable as wood or metal models.
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.
Table linens: A neatly stacked and folded combination of color coordinated kitchen linens and tea towels can transform a hutch into a focal point of color. Canning supplies: Make your hutch reminiscent of a 1930's kitchen complete with grouped canning jars, lids, and other supplies. Mixing up unfilled containers with homemade jars of brightly colored preserves and fruits makes this especially attractive. Hopefully, this list will get your creative juices going. There are most likely items you have right now in your own home that you'd like to see on display. It's a great way for you to share your interests and personality with your guests. One piece of furniture can help to create beauty, conversation, an convenience.A favorite collection of dishes: The collection of fine china or stoneware is a grand tradition, seen in many residences from local neighborhoods all the way to the White House. Throughout history, there were families who entertained so much that guests could stay at the family home for one month without eating on the same dinnerware twice! Many people have a 2nd set of dishes or china stored somewhere in a cabinet. Why not let these pieces, often chosen for their specific appeal to our tastes, become an item of decor instead of just a storage item.
