I am looking at buying a brownstone where the open dining room will not hold my traditional hutch .the foyer will accommodate it -is that OK??

Can you show us a photo of the hutch please, and of the foyer, too, if you have one? I think it could work, but wouldn't be sure without photos. Also, have you measured, or do you just "think" it will fit? How long is the wall and how wide is the hutch? I ask because there's also the possibility that while it might actually fit, it might look too big for the space. Will it crowd the pathway into the house?

It does look very dining roomish, doesn't it! Is the dining room just off the entry? I guess I'm not thrilled with the idea of a china cabinet in the entry instead of a pretty console with a mirror above it. It just doesn't quite set the right mood. So while it would fit, I don't think it's what I would want to do. And I realize it's probably not what YOU want to do either, but you're "married" to the china cabinet. Could you do something radical like selling it? Do you absolutely have to have it? Would you rather have the new house or the china cab?

So difficult when our furniture won't fit. The hutch won't work in the entry- definitely for dining room or kitchen.

Beautiful piece. Make it work. Maybe you can use other than traditional items for display.

don't know what to do -other than to ask the builder to put in a wall between the DR and the hearth room -wont be as "open" but creates a space -see attached

Can you separate the pieces? Use the bottom as a console in the foyer and somehow hang the top in the dining room or kitchen for storage? Did this a long time ago, with a similar piece, and loved the effect. The pieces were eventually reunited in a larger dining room.

Can it go in a family room or office and used as a bookcase? Or can just the bottom work in another room. If it's really unusable, sell it! It will be a relief to just let it go!

I would put it in the entry instead of having a wall built for it and upsetting the flow of the house as it was meant to be. Then if you hate it there, you can sell it or give it to a friend.
