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? 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.
Like bookcases, hutches come in open and closed-in styles. Before making your purchase, consider what you will use it for. If you are a collector of knickknacks or other collectibles the open style is more suitable as a display venue. Cookbook collections, small vintage utensils and photographs could find cozy homes in one of the closed-in models. They can be as ornate or as simplistic as your lifestyle. An antique one makes a great topic for folkloric stories about its origin and previous owners. It can become home to a lonely plant or a stand for a small television or kitchen stereo system. The best thing about them is that they do not have to match anything. The front does not compete with the aluminum or porcelain veneers of the appliances. The door or drawer pulls can as simple as round knob or as exquisite as an ornately decorated brass ring.
It may also be a good idea to go in for a dining room set or package deal, which would typically include dining table and chairs, and a hutch or sideboard which, as a set would contain pieces that match and complement each other, bringing a harmonious and attractive look to the dining area. A hutch is one of the things that the Amish master craftsmen also make and Amish Furniture is of course legendary for its durability and beauty.
