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.
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.
These racks fulfill the requirement of more space in almost every part of the house along with giving an elegant and clean look to the environment. They are used for several functions in the house. Since racks originated in kitchens, many people still use them particularly in kitchen. However, their purpose is widened. Along with their traditional purpose of cooling baked things, people use them for extra storage, for holding candles or plant stands and even for arranging cookbooks. Most of the bakers racks come with built in cutting boards and wine racks providing additional space.
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.
The Wrought Iron Bakers Rack - this is the most famous of all the racks. These are again traditionally designed but are more versatile. The material they are made from brings life back to its original purpose. The wrought iron racks has a wire shelf that helps in cooling baked goods. Bakers racks are also used as bookshelves. These racks are usually found in kitchens because of large gaps between the wires. Small items cannot be placed until there is additional support underneath them.
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.
