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.
Colors of dining hutches and buffets will vary based on the retailers sought. From black finishes to stained wood or even whitewash, color choices abound. However if you are not happy with the color of your new piece of kitchen or dining room furniture, wood workers in your local area can strip the color from the wood and restain it another color for a fee. It is best to read about the specific model you are choosing to find out if a laminate is used or if the wood is actually stained prior to deciding to repaint or stain the surface.
If you were to randomly ask ten people what a "hutch" is, they would almost answer universally that it is a big wooden cabinet that sits in a dining room with dishes in it. Little if any thought would be given to the possibility that it could be a big wooden cabinet that sits in a kitchen. The funny thing is that the average kitchen is full of big furniture items. The stove, refrigerator, freezer, kitchen table and in some instances even the washer and dryer are all in the kitchen. The problem is that other than the kitchen table and chairs, most people don't envision a big piece of wood furniture in a kitchen.
