When shopping for a bakers rack for any room, know that there is an endless variety of styles, finishes and materials out there. You can get racks that fit neatly into a corner and make use of this often wasted space as well as those that will work well on a straight wall. Most bakers racks have a few design elements in common, i.e., the wire or open racks that pies traditionally cooled on.
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structure which you can use to hold a variety of different items and that the classical wrought iron design has been replaced by one that uses more daring angles and curves to make a design statement.
Further examples of the bakers rack, harkening back to a more traditional version, include wooden cabinets in the lower half of the rack while preserving the elegant wrought iron structure for the upper half. Glass is also a material that is used in the construction of bakers racks as is wicker. What these different models have in common is that they all have an open structure. So unlike kitchen dressers where shelves are typically fixed against a closed back panel, they bring that extra hint of freshness into the room.
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.
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.
These racks fulfill the requirement of more space in almost every part of the house along with giving an elegant and clean look to the environment. They are used for several functions in the house. Since racks originated in kitchens, many people still use them particularly in kitchen. However, their purpose is widened. Along with their traditional purpose of cooling baked things, people use them for extra storage, for holding candles or plant stands and even for arranging cookbooks. Most of the bakers racks come with built in cutting boards and wine racks providing additional space.
