Utilitarian in purpose, what better place than the kitchen for a cabinet that displays dishes and glasses, holds silverware, linens, special use utensils and cooking gadgets? Wood always lends warmth to kitchen décor and nothing could be warmer than a stately wooden hutch lining a wall in a kitchen. There are a variety of hutch styles that would complement almost any kitchen design. From modern and contemporary to traditional or even antique finishes, the possibilities are endless. Furniture is an expression of you; a signature of sorts and it should always complement rather than detract. Obviously a huge ostentatious wooden cabinet carelessly stationed in the middle of the floor would be more of an eyesore than an accent, however, a smaller well-crafted cabinet scaled to fit the room can add just the right touch to an otherwise ordinary room.
Kitchen gatherings and entertainment are becoming the latest trend in home utilization, and to do so means, kitchen space is paramount. The need for organizational structure, convenience, and freedom to move about the kitchen are now top priorities. With a streamlining society, we have the desire to not only create beautiful dinner services, but crave the space necessary to enjoy our guests' company. For this reason, recent trends in kitchen design are incorporating more modern innovations to accommodate the dual purpose of cooking and entertaining: the need for organization and space. Yet if you can't redesign your kitchen, what options are available.
Hutches can be found in a kitchen, a living room, a dining room, a den, or even a hallway. Whatever the location you're looking to fill, there's a hutch that can fit your needs. Also called a curio by those curious New Englanders, these merging of bookshelves and cabinets provide a place to display and store knick knacks, fine china or dinnerware, collectibles, or whatever you're looking to display proudly in your home. Hutches can be open designs or also enclosed in glass. The choice will depend on your lifestyle and what you're looking to place in the hutch. Valuable, fragile items - such as fine china or crystal dinnerware or stemware should be stored behind glass for an added layer of protection. Cute collectibles that may not carry much value such as common figurines or plastic dolls can be stored in an open hutch as can common dinnerware that is replaceable. Open hutches are not recommended for people with small children or pets such as cats and dogs as the animals and children can knock things out of the hutch and damage them.
