The design of your hutch will need to blend the style of your display items with your home's décor. An ornate hutch would look silly displaying Star Wars themed mugs or glasses in a contemporary styled living room. Hutches can be as simple as a series of drawers under an open shelf display case or as intricate as hand carved ornamentation spreading through the entire piece. You must carefully choose the styles that fit you and your home's space best. Keep the hutch simple, even when ornamental. If you do choose an ornamental hutch try to limit the display to such things as fine china or crystal ware, don't try to place collectibles in an ornate hutch. When choosing a simple hutch, don't try to over flow the space with items to make up for the simple design, allow the basic wood beauty stand alone.
These hutches are going to be an extension of the style in your dining room. This means you need to take a good note of the style you already have in play in your dining room and make sure that what you choose will fit in with the theme you have put in effect. You don't have to run out and buy some right away as soon as you know you like them. Instead, do a little research. Get to know what is out there on the market. Look at TV furnishing shows, in magazines and anywhere else you can think of to see the options that are for sale. Keep a stack of the ones you really like so you can make a list of features you want in the one you purchase.
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.
