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.
Okay, so you might be thinking, how can bakers racks be pleasing to the eye? The reason is, is that they are built out of different materials and are then styled a number of lovely ways through the finishes that are applied to them and the way that they are detailed. For example, there are selections crafted from a combination of glass, wood, and metal, featuring glass shelving supporting by a stainless steel base filled with ornamental accenting that is finished in a gold/pewter type color, creating a antique selection. Or, there are other choices made from just wood, like those that are built from rubber wood with a distressed white finished with elegant carved accents or others built from pine that have sleek lines and a dark walnut finish, developing a country themed option.
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.
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.
Wooden Bakers Rack - these are antique racks and are available in shaker type designs and have an old country kitchen theme attached to them. Usually they are finished with black or white polish giving them a more farmhouse type style.
