Display heirlooms and fine silverware in an Amish hutch

by Tom Grimes

There are some items in a household that are special, but are rarely used. These possessions can be sentimental, such as heirlooms, or just for special occasions, like fine China and expensive silverware.

KitchenBathIdeas.com states that one way to display these special belongings is to proudly arrange them in a hutch. Hutches can add beauty and grandeur to dining and living rooms alike and, with their open, glass doors, are the perfect way to store items in a safe and visible place.

The source also states that hutches can reduce the clutter of unused dishes and silverware that may otherwise gather in the kitchen. Since many pieces also have lower cabinets, hutches can also be used as places to keep napkins, tablecloths and placemats out of the way.

When adding a hutch to a room, be sure to consider the effect of lighting on the glass doors. By placing a piece by a window, one can create an ever-changing pattern of illumination.

Amish hutches are unique, handcrafted pieces of solid wood that can add an element of tradition to a room. The news source claims that an antique hutch can add elegance without sacrificing storage space. They can provide a breathtaking backdrop to a dining experience and, like all Amish furniture, they are built to last for generations.ADNFCR-3308-ID-19899932-ADNFCR
