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.
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.
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.
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.
Steve Silver Trisha Cherry Bakers Rack - promoting contemporary style, this piece of furniture has a handy storage for wine, glasses and other kitchen items to keep them accessible all the time. Crafted from solid hardwood and metal, these racks are finished with cherry wood and dark ironwork.
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.
