There is something quite wonderful to be said about a piece of furniture that serves more than one purpose. This kind of furniture can come in the form of a table with drawers, an ottoman that opens up for lovely storage or even a couch that has a hidden compartment for the television remote or drinks. However, when you really want to make a simply elegant statement, there is nothing better than the beauty and the function of bakers racks.
If you dont know what a bakers rack is, just think of the country kitchens of yore where homemakers cooked up pie after pie and set them on tall pieces of furniture that had wire racks for cooling baked goods.
Even in todays cavernous homes, space is always at a premium. There just seems to always be more stuff than space to keep it in. One of the best and most innovative solutions to add both style and storage to your home is bakers racks.
Not content with only having a model that stands flush with a wall, manufacturers also offer models of the bakers rack for positioning in corners where the wrought iron structure makes a perfect backdrop for displaying porcelain, plants or photos. Other variations on the same theme are wooden ones that may fit better with the other items in the room. The other advantage of wooden ones is that they are typically significantly less expensive than the wrought iron versions.
If youre not a pie maker, you can use these to display knickknacks, your favorite cookware or dishes or use them for ready access to your favorite books, including your favorite cookbooks. When selecting racks for your home, you want to choose ones that not only fit your storage needs, but your general décor as well. Bakers racks come in a lot of different styles, from country and traditional to contemporary and rustic. This makes it easy to find one that complements the rest of your furnishings while still adding much needed storage for books, wine, knickknacks, DVDs or things you only need seasonally, such as holiday serving ware.
But wait, thats not all. You can also now find contemporary designs of the bakers rack, where the functionality has been kept but the look has been changed for a resolutely modern one. This means that you still have the same open multi-level structure which you can use to hold a variety of different items and that the classical wrought iron design has been replaced by one that uses more daring angles and curves to make a design statement.
