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 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.
While pie baking may be a rarity in your home, these racks continue to be popular choice in todays homes, largely because they tie us to the past while offering space to expand in the future.
Like any other piece of furniture, these racks are available in different sizes, texture and styles to fit according to your home décor. Some common types of material that they are made up of are listed below.
The Wrought Iron Bakers Rack - this is the most famous of all the racks. These are again traditionally designed but are more versatile. The material they are made from brings life back to its original purpose. The wrought iron racks has a wire shelf that helps in cooling baked goods. Bakers racks are also used as bookshelves. These racks are usually found in kitchens because of large gaps between the wires. Small items cannot be placed until there is additional support underneath them.
The bakers rack started life as a utilitarian item, something that was designed to make a bakery more efficient and more productive. As the name suggests, it is a rack that is floor standing and extends to about five or six feet high depending on the model that you choose. Often built on a metal or wrought iron frame, one includes several levels of shelves and the possibility to attach cooking utensils on hooks underneath. Freestanding rather than integrated into any kind of fitted kitchen, they are in a sense a kind of dresser with a smaller and more open structure.
