    Why a New Cabinet or Hutch Can Improve Your Home

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Though many homes come equipped with built-in cabinets, these spaces may not be enough to store your belongings. Cabinets and hutches can add style and extra storage space and can be placed in any room in your home. Here are a few reasons you should consider investing in freestanding cabinets:

    They’re Portable

    While cabinets and hutches are not designed to be moved around on a regular basis, they can be emptied and moved into other rooms in the house or to another location, if needed. This means you can buy them as permanent fixtures for the home or take them with you when you move.

    They’re Useful

    Cabinets and hutches provide a beautiful way to store your belongings. Anything can be stored in your cabinet—blankets, clothes, dishes, and towels are just a few common items.

    They’re Decorative

    Many cabinets and hutches are created from dark wood and have decorative edges, handles, and doors. You can have your cabinets designed specifically to display glasses and dishes, or you can utilize a closed design to store other belongings. Either way, your cabinet is sure to add an element of elegance to your home.

    They’re Practical

    Cabinets not only add style and value to your home, but they are also practical pieces of furniture. There is no installation or construction—you simply bring your cabinet home and set it up, and it is ready to go. You can even move it around until you find the perfect spot for it, because it is not a permanent fixture.

    Taking a Look at Today's Kitchen Design Trends

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Whether you’re looking to freshen up your kitchen design or completely reimagine it, there are many exciting kitchen design ideas to consider. When recreating your kitchen, think about its color scheme, lighting, functionality, seating, fixtures, and appliances. Incorporate current kitchen furniture ideas into your design by learning a little more about what’s popular right now:

    Bold Colors and Bright Lights

    For kitchen color schemes, deep browns and bright whites are en vogue among interior designers. Consider furnishings and cabinets with sleek, dark wood as a lower base and complement them with lighter-colored counters and window treatments. You can even choose hanging light fixtures that feature colors from your design scheme, incorporating the ceiling into your overall kitchen theme.

    Dual-Purpose Dining Tables

    Some homeowners are opting to use a dining table as both a kitchen island and dining space—this is especially popular in modern apartments and homes without a dining room. The trend creates a communal dining experience, with food being cooked and served all around your guests.


    Perfect for serving breakfast with a side of conversation, barstools offer a great way to enjoy a meal while saving space. They also allow the host to prepare dishes while conversing with guests over the counter. Consider backless stools to retain a sense of openness. For barstools with back support, muted red leathers are gaining popularity.

    Farmhouse Flair

    Simple, functional old-world designs with a modern twist are also popular right now. Cast-iron sinks and classically inspired faucets mix familiar charm with up-to-date design. Farmhouse-inspired kitchens and old-fashioned Americana décor are also coming back.
