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.
You can even have your bakers rack outside if you want. Models using the charm and the design of interior versions are now available for outdoors use. Some of them, using wicker, are suitable for use in a verandah or in a space that is protected from the elements. Others made of wrought iron and treated against rust and corrosion can stand in the open air and provide that design counterpart to everything else that nature does so well.
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 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.
Their household usage is different. There are countless things that can be done with bakers racks. You can use them to store linens in the bathroom, or keeping toys in your childs bedroom or like a bookshelf in the living space. At party time, the purpose of these bakers racks can change completely. You can use them to place food where guests can help themselves.
But wait, thats not all. You can also now find contemporary designs of the bakers rack, where the functionality has been kept but the look has been changed for a resolutely modern one. This means that you still have the same open multi-level structure which you can use to hold a variety of different items and that the classical wrought iron design has been replaced by one that uses more daring angles and curves to make a design statement.
