Things to Consider When Buying a Hutch for Your Desk

Go Back

Are you looking to add more storage to your office desk with a hutch? Check out a few of our tips below before you do!

First and foremost, most places you would purchase your hutch from, don't have universal hutches. This means there aren't many one-size-fits-all when it comes to adding a desk hutch.

At, we don't have universal hutches, and when you're you're looking to add one to your desk, make sure you get one from the collection you purchased your desk from to ensure the best color match and fit. On our website, you can do this by searching by the name of the collection you bought your desk from.

Take Your Measurements!

When choosing a desk hutch, you always want to make sure the hutch base is smaller than the desk surface you are putting it on top of. Something to note is that some hutches have fluted molding on the top, so an overall measurement may make it an inch or so bigger than the base. It may be seemingly too big, but in fact the base is smaller and it may be a perfect fit. Your best bet is to always check the product specifications or call customer service to clarify!

Knowing the height of your computer monitor and the height underneath the lowest shelf on a hutch is important if that is where you will be working to ensure a workable fit. Additionally, the depth of the hutch may be important to those storing larger books and binders.

Do You Need Additional Lighting?

If you're looking for a hutch with lights, it's important to know that not all hutches have lights. If that's an important feature for you, make sure the product details state that it includes them or call to verify.

What Will The Hutch Be Used For?

Know what you may be storing or organizing in your hutch. Do supplies need to be enclosed behind doors? Do you need adjustable shelves? Do you need a tack board? All these are important considerations when purchasing a hutch, so that it will work best for your needs.
