Need Kitchen Storage? Contemplate Hutch-Style Cabinets

Hutch-style cabinets are enjoying a comeback as homeowners look for methods to add furniture design to their kitchens. A hutch is technically described as shelving or cabinet set in addition to a base cabinet with a countertop in between. Recently we’re seeing hutches interpreted to meet the growing storage needs of a kitchen. When thinking of a duplex, only remember to not sacrifice a lot of counter space. Here’s a look at a few kitchen layouts that successfully integrate this notion, in both built in and stand bits.

Symmetry is often a hallmark trait of hutch-style cabinets. Here there are two cabinets with doors of equal size with a single drawer under. Hutch-style cabinets often look best as a flush inset construction, where you see the face frame around the doors as shown here. These are composed of quite clean and simple shaker doors inside simple legged cabinets and very little embellishment. Even though these cabinets are framed, the hinges are hidden.

All these hutches can also be framed inset with hidden hinges, but have the added embellishments of glass shelves and cupboard lighting. Another typical hallmark of this hutch cupboard is that it is often seen at the end of a run of cabinets — that helps to define the end of the kitchen along with the start of new room.

This hutch has more of a vintage butler’s pantry vibe. Contrary to the previous examples I’ve shown you, the timber with this model extends round the counter top part, making it seem more like one solid furniture piece.

Another design movement gaining popularity is flanking a opening or pass-through using two hutches. Frequently this design incorporates cabinets across the top of the opening, connecting the pair of hutch cabinets.

Whenever you have loads of counter space, there’s nothing wrong with sacrificing a few it to get a hutch cupboard. Along with providing extra storage room, cabinets that operate to the countertop include a more finished, formal look to the kitchen.
