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.
From this come the bakers rack model which is more ornamental and which people are now starting to use outside of the kitchen as well as within it. The metal structure has become more elegant with sophisticated design and curved, flowing lines. The open aspect has been preserved and it can be positioned against the wall in almost any room, be it the living room, dining room, lobby or bedroom.
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.
While traditional racks were open affairs with a tabletop in the middle and racks above, todays models are built with the needs of modern homes in mind. They may forego the open space below, opting for doored units, additional shelving or even a built-in wine rack instead.
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.
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.
