Cabinet areas and buffets that are attached to hutches can be useful in the kitchen. Although there are many people who simply place these in the dining room for appearance only, many find them more useful in the kitchen area as a way of having additional storage space for those with less than desirable cabinets. But with all the styles and materials that modern dining room hutches come available in today, it is a wonder there is not one in every home. With affordable prices and retailers everywhere selling them, dining room hutches are more popular than ever before.
Once the dishes were washed and dried, the oak sideboard would also be the storage place between meals. The structure of the sideboard was generally five to six-feet in length by eighteen inches deep by thirty-eight to forty-one inches tall. The height was configured to the waist height of the hostess, for the top of the sideboard had to coincide with her ability to carry platters of food to and from the furniture piece. The sideboard had cabinets in the main trunk of the piece with at least one and generally two drawers. The top had to be completely flat without any interruption of its surface as it was the main staging area for serving.
When redesigning your kitchen and dining area, using dining room hutches will free up space in the kitchen and adds another cabinet to the dining area. The hutch area is used to store small cups, dishes or other knick knacks, while the buffet area is used for display or storage for others to see. The contemporary types sold today incorporate a buffet, sideboard and cabinets into one unit for ease of use. These hutches are not only used in the dining room, as many are made with sideboards for cutting or preparing food in the kitchen.
In terms of size, it really depends on the space that you have in mind for the sideboard. A longer unit would be more suitable in a drawing room. Smaller units would be more functional, serving as extra space for your things in a bedroom perhaps. If the area of the room that you're looking to put it in is small, a small sideboard, with taller shelves would be just what you would need in terms of storage. For an office or a study, sideboards with filing drawers are also available, which give you ample storage for important papers, while also eliminating the ugly filing cabinets from your space.
