No matter in which part of the house you are using the bakers rack, the purpose remains the same: providing you additional space. This is very useful furniture and was traditionally used only in bakeries and kitchens to cool baked things. As more people became aware of the basic purpose of these racks, their usage was spread in other parts of the house.
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.
Even in todays cavernous homes, space is always at a premium. There just seems to always be more stuff than space to keep it in. One of the best and most innovative solutions to add both style and storage to your home is bakers racks.
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.
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.
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.
