If you have figured out what are the right kind of dining table and chairs for the shape and size of your dining area, it may be time to look at another aspect of the dining room or area; the accent furniture to enhance the area. You can choose accent furniture from among several different options: hutches, buffets, corner cabinets, storage cabinets, sideboards etc. these can be value additions to your dining area in terms of both style as well as practicality. A dining room hutch is also known as a buffet or a dresser and is an item that adds a lot of elegance and class to the dining area. A large, elaborate dining room hutch would give a touch of formal grace to the room, while a smaller, functional one would give the room a more relaxed and informal appearance.
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.
Don't over do the hutch. The hutch should customize the room, not the other way around. If you have too much to display, choose to rotate the items in the display in and out of storage space as opposed to overcrowding a hutch or overcrowding a room with multiple hutches. Be sure the room is large enough to accommodate the space required for a hutch. Low ceilings will require a shorter hutch than tall ceilings. Place the hutch away from too much clutter as you'll want the piece to draw attention and stand on its own so that everyone can admire the subjects you've chosen to display.
