In the end, its just wonderful to have a furnishing that serves more than one purpose, which is exactly what you get with bakers racks. One would definitely be a fabulous investment that will get you nothing but compliments.
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.
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 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.
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.
In fact, bakers racks make a great wine rack and serving station in the home, allowing you to both store and serve wine all in one place. Plus, the table offers a convenient place to open and decant a bottle of wine or prepare some cheese and crackers or other appetizers.
