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.
What makes bakers racks so function is their design, which somewhat resemble a book shelf. Typically, one will feature shelving where you can set down, store, and display different items. Along with that shelving, there are some options that also have roomy table tops ideal for placing things like plants or microwaves. You can also use their table tops for extra work space for like cutting vegetables or kneading dough for baking. In addition to that, there are other options that even come with cabinets, drawers, and wine racks. So, you can stow away plenty of different things, including your favorite wines so you can have them easily accessible when unexpected guests arrive.
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.
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.
You may even find that bakers racks fit well into a bedroom, too. In a childs room they can be used to display stuffed animals or favorite toys while still offering the child a small desktop that can be used for coloring or hobbies. Below, you can store extra blankets for the bed on those cold winter nights.
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.
