There are so many reasons why I want to find a new piece of furniture for the kitchen and the living room. Our rooms are almost empty, I mean there’s only one table in the living room and a couch. In the kitchen we barely have a place to eat at the counter. We picked up some stools from a friend who didn’t need it and we got lucky on that one. Seriously there needs to be some furniture here, this is starting to feel like a college dorm.
For the living room I want to fill in the corners with something. I started looking on a site called CornerHutchCabinet for some great ideas. They mainly show and review corner hutches. These things are wooden structures about 6 feet tall. They’re mostly made of hardwood so they can be a bit on the pricey side. This is something we will have to get used to if we want nice furniture though. The main point of them is that there is some storage room at the top and the bottom. Some of them have an open middle area where you can put whatever you want. This can be the things used throughout the day like papers, purses, etc.
The main draw for it is that we can store office supplies or little accessories like staplers, pens and other things at the bottom. On the top where there is a display window we can keep food, snacks, plates and silverware, or anything that would be convenient to the room. I plan on using the center portion for pen and paper, with a telephone for easy access.
We can’t have enough telephones in this house, since we can never pick it up in time! I really like how some of these designs come with slide out drawers and storage space at the top. Some also have closed designs where you can’t see behind the cabinets. This may be helpful for other rooms like the kitchen as well.
