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.
Hutches can be found in a kitchen, a living room, a dining room, a den, or even a hallway. Whatever the location you're looking to fill, there's a hutch that can fit your needs. Also called a curio by those curious New Englanders, these merging of bookshelves and cabinets provide a place to display and store knick knacks, fine china or dinnerware, collectibles, or whatever you're looking to display proudly in your home. Hutches can be open designs or also enclosed in glass. The choice will depend on your lifestyle and what you're looking to place in the hutch. Valuable, fragile items - such as fine china or crystal dinnerware or stemware should be stored behind glass for an added layer of protection. Cute collectibles that may not carry much value such as common figurines or plastic dolls can be stored in an open hutch as can common dinnerware that is replaceable. Open hutches are not recommended for people with small children or pets such as cats and dogs as the animals and children can knock things out of the hutch and damage them.
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.
