Furniture-Style Cabinetry for Your Hutch

Add a personal flair to your kitchen with furniture-style cabinetry that acts as your hutch. Here, the warm wood tones of the cabinetry match the floors, ensuring that the hutch fits in beautifully in the kitchen. Three different levels provide an ample amount of storage space while adding beauty and style to the room. On top, square glass-paneled doors create an ideal place for fine china displays. Just below that, paneled doors match the glass above but hide clutter sitting behind. Finally, solid wooden cabinetry sits close to the floor for a solid element that connects the floor to the cabinetry.

Center Your Hutch Around a Window

Add a unique twist to your hutch by building it around a window. Glass-front cabinets displaying tablewares flank an original window to dress this built-in unit as a china breakfront. Its handsome walnut counter -- at a lower height than nearby granite counters -- also furthers the illusion of freestanding furniture, providing a small workspace if desired and separating the glass-front cabinets from the solid cabinetry below. Pull-out shelves beneath the workspace add another practical element, and allow for easy access. Blend your hutch with the remainder of the kitchen by using soft colors that mesh well with the flooring and walls.

Freestanding Cabinets for a Hutch-like Appearance

A unique hutch-like appearance can be attained with multiple freestanding cabinets. Here, three cabinets are all finished with identical classic crown molding to unify the look. A layered look, with the two outside cabinets sitting just in front of the middle one, makes the unit more interesting. The off-white cabinets match the other woodwork found in the kitchen to ensure continuity, and glass doors allow for a display of china or other heirlooms that can easily be changed. Obtain a similar look in your home by layering cabinets and creating a look that blends well with the colors in your kitchen.

Hutch with Open Shelving

Find the perfect hutch for your kitchen by blending its tones with the hues on the walls, like this creamy off-white hutch. Make sunlight reflect off of the hutch by using beveled-glass doors on the cabinetry. An open shelving area between two glass doors, such as on the hutch in this kitchen, provides an idyllic focal point to display your unique personal flair. Hidden storage space below hides clutter while the beautiful finish adds a quiet elegance.

Antique Kitchen Hutch

Add an eclectic touch to your kitchen with an antique hutch. In this kitchen, the hutch matches the wooden table, blending in beautifully with the decor. Plenty of storage is available through the solid cabinetry below and behind the glass doors above. By using a hutch that does not reach all the way to the ceiling, the top of the cabinets can be adorned with personal touches, too. The antique style adds elegance, but still retains the practical element of additional kitchen storage space.

Make sure to adorn your hutch with accented drawer pulls to break the monotony of the solid color. Here, silver handles blend beautifully with the d&#233cor of the kitchen. A marble countertop separates the top of the hutch from the bottom, and matches the countertops found throughout the rest of the kitchen.

A Hutch Makes a Beautiful Pass-through

For a unique take on your hutch, keep the middle open to act as a pass-through from room to room. Glass adorns both the front and back of the cabinets to enhance the open feeling and provide space to display dishes and antiques on either side. Cabinets above the opening provide hidden storage space that is accessible from both sides of the hutch, and open storage below is perfect for larger items. Create a friendly atmosphere in your home by using a similar hutch that separates rooms while retaining an open feel.
