If you love dishes and glasses as much as I do, you will quickly find you run out of spaces to hide them, but you can also incorporate them into your decor by using open and glass front hutches.
In this short video for eHow.com I discuss incorporating your collections in to you home decor and decorating.
Many dining hutches have a glass front area as well as an enclosed area. When displaying items in the glass front area, it’s nice to group them into categories. Even though I have a collection of mismatched champagne glasses, organizing them together in one area creates a very nice display. Use the second shelf for other items that have a little bit more colorful design or are pitchers and stoneware. Use cake plates to add height for your smaller items.
Adding taller items to the top of this hutch, creates height as well as allows for space for those numerous glass vases that we have all acquired.
On the center shelf area, add personalized items such as ceramic bowls or fondue pots from your childhood.
In the enclosed area, you can hide votives, napkins and other accessories that don’t need to be as organized quite as well. There’s really no wrong way to display these items but by grouping them into collections, you will find it really creates a more appealing look.
