Decorating A Dining Room Hutch
You can choose accent furniture for your dining room 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. If you already have a dining room hutch, then want to decorate it, here are several ideas for you. New hardware is one of the quickest and least expensive ways to give a dining room hutch an update. Hardware options include porcelain or glass knobs for an old-fashioned look, cast iron handles for rustic decor, brass or matte-silver to match your dining room light fixtures, filigree hardware to dress up a plain hutch or matte-finish knobs to update an old hutch. Refinishing oil that matches a wooden hutch’s finish helps to camouflage scratches, and painting a hutch can transform it. Wallpapering the inside surfaces gives the hutch a new look and creates a contrasting backdrop for decorating.
Serving platters evenly spaced and standing on the top shelf with dinner plates standing on the lower shelves puts the china pattern on display. Dining room hutches generally have a groove at the back of the shelves to hold platters and plates on their edges. A teacup on a saucer with the saucer in front of each plate completes a traditional china display. Other dishes from the set will stack neatly in the hutch’s cabinet. Including ornate serving trays in the display adds contrast and more shapes. Leaning a small painting or framed mirror against the back gives the traditional display a new element.
