Hutches, buffet servers, and china cabinets can add much needed dining room storage while also offering a display space for stylish home décor. If you’re looking for dining room decorating ideas, don’t skip this guide on how to decorate a hutch.

Choose a Theme

When it comes to dining room design ideas, our best advice is to start with a theme. While your dining room should reflect a certain interior design style, decorating a dining room hutch calls for a narrower theme to guide the design. Many people decorate their hutches seasonally for this very reason, letting their decorative pieces reflect winter, spring, summer, and fall for the duration of that season.

Pay Attention to Color

Color can be a powerful tool when decorating a hutch, and regardless of how you use it, you’ll want to be sure to make these decisions thoughtfully. Choosing a limited color palette, for example, can seamlessly create a cohesive decorative look. Alternatively, color blocking is an increasingly popular decorative strategy and could be a great option for a more modern dining room design.

Less is More

Because hutches are used both functionally as dining room storage and aesthetically as a display case, it can be easy to go overboard when choosing items to include. Our interior design experts recommend going with a “less is more” approach so that your hutch doesn’t appear to be too busy or cluttered. Having a theme and color constraints is a great way to narrow down your items so they can best reflect your personal style.
