A bakers rack can be ideal for an apartment that doesn't have all that much room for storage in the kitchen area. This does not limit them to only be great accessories for apartments, anyone that enjoys cooking and does it frequently will also enjoy the ease a bakers rack can offer. Having all of your important spices, measuring spoons, cake pans, etc. within reach without needing to stretch up into those upper cabinets in your kitchen. For use within an apartment and even a smaller home, a microwave can easily sit on top of the bakers rack which gives you the option of having more counter space if needed. Many of the newer bakers racks even offer a place for you to put your wine glasses or other glasses as well as drawers and cabinets within it. Again freeing up space for you and giving you easy access to all of your necessities.
If you are not a baker, you may think the idea of owning a bakers rack is a little bit of overkill. But just because you will not be filling the shelves with a number of loaves of bread and various fruit filled pies every day does not mean a bakers rack can't serve practical purposes in your home. You can have the old world charm of the furniture, but put it to work with more modern uses. Generally, bakers racks would belong in the kitchen, near where all the cooking is done. In today's kitchen that means you can use bakers racks as great places for excess storage. Some bakers racks have cabinets on the bottom that can be used as a way to de-clutter your kitchen counter tops. Think about all those things you have in the kitchen that you periodically use, but generally just take up space. They could be stored in the bottom of bakers racks. This is also a way to hide those modern appliances that can take away from your country kitchen appearance.
Kitchen racks today are used more for decoration than for storage. Kitchen racks, or bakers racks, as they were once called many years ago are now used in many other rooms of the home. Some of these racks have wine racks built in and some have drawers that pull out. The original bakers rack was made for cooling baked goods and was used not only by commercial bakers but also by the women of the home since the seventeenth century. The concept of these racks was to have open shelving which was very important in speeding up the cooling process for all those great home baked pies and goodies.
