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.
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.
Now consider what size hutches you need for the space in your dining room that is available. If you have a lot of space you may want to consider ones that are wide and shorter. If space is at a premium in your home the better option may be those that are narrow and taller. How are you going to use the one you get? This will make a big difference in the style of hutches that you choose for your home. If you are going to display all sorts of things you are going to want to make sure there are a lot of shelves and possibly glass fronted cabinets to display all those items from. If the one you buy is going to be more for storage you are going to want to focus more on the number of drawers and cabinets that you can use to put thing away. Another important detail to keep in mind is their durability. If you are going to display beautiful items with yours, you want to make sure those beautiful items will stay intact. Before you bring your selection home, make sure to really get a feel for their durability. You want to make sure they are well constructed and have the weight and bulk to stand up to a bump or two as people make their way around your home. The final consideration to make is whether you want new or used hutches. This is truly a personal decision. If you are not someone who has to have things that are new, you may be able to find a great deal by opening yourself up to the used market. There are plenty of slightly used or even antique options if you are willing to shop around.
