A beautiful buffet hutch is a classic piece that suits just about any home. Sometimes referred to as a dining room hutch or sideboard, there are many uses for these furniture pieces. From storage to dining room furniture, these items are great to have around. In this blog post, we are going to give you 5 ways you can use a buffet hutch in your home.
Common Names For a Buffet Hutch
It is important to note that buffet hutches are commonly referred to as hutches, sideboards, or T.V. stands. All of these terms are fairly synonymous. This means, when you are shopping for your new buffet hutch, it may be referred to as another term. For example, our pieces are called sideboards. The great thing about furniture is you get to use it however you want. So, throughout this blog post, we may refer to products by any of those names.
Ways to Use a Buffet Hutch in Your Home
1. As a TV Stand
A great way to use a buffet hutch or a sideboard is as a TV stand. The key to using a sideboard as a TV stand is to make sure it is wide enough. Very narrow hutches may not be able to hold your TV securely. It is also very helpful for a TV stand to have a space for a cable box or DVD player, like our Creighton Sideboard does, which is pictured below. This will help your living room or entertainment area appear less cluttered.
2. As Formal Dining Room Storage
A very common use for a buffet hutch is as formal dining room storage. They will typically hold silverware, china, or placemats. This is very handy if you are struggling to fit all of your kitchenware in your preexisting cabinets. A buffet hutch can also be a great stylistic touch if your dining room is bare. For those who do not favor the classic hutch look, using a formal buffet sideboard, such as our Belmont Sideboard, is an excellent option.
3. As a Buffet Hutch for Holidays
Buffet hutches, as their name suggests, are designed to set food on top of to serve meals. They are an efficient way to ensure everyone can grab a plate and choose their food, rather than someone manually serving everyone. This is an excellent way to use a buffet hutch. The piece you choose to serve as buffet furniture will be a part of many amazing memories. So, be sure you choose one you love. When it is not a holiday season, you can also use it for weeknight dinners and holiday decoration storage. If you don’t want a large buffet hutch, we recommend getting a smaller one like our Coleson Sideboard.
4. As Hallway Decor
Just about every home has an empty wall. At times, even a large picture is not enough to fill the space. Thankfully, a great sideboard can be the perfect solution. Depending on the width of your hallway, you can choose a sideboard to suit the space. We make custom furniture for our customers and allow them to choose the dimensions of their furniture pieces. This can make it much easier to style a sideboard along your empty wall.
5. As Extra Storage in the Living Room
It can be very difficult to implement efficient storage in living rooms. Typically, families have to work with their coffee table or a bookshelf for their living room storage. However, with the help of a stunning sideboard, you can get amazing storage. Many of our sideboards, such as the Westport Sideboard, have plenty of storage space for remotes, electronics, and even kids’ toys. So, if you are in need of some extra living storage, be on the lookout for a sideboard with drawers or cabinets.
The Perfect Buffet Hutch
At the end of the day, you can use a sideboard just about anywhere in your home. They are amazingly versatile pieces so you can use them as needed. We recommend choosing one that you love so you can use it however you want for many years to come.
