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.
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.
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.
