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.
The bakers rack has also gained that special favor in the home. What used to be used primarily by the professional baker is now used as a decorative shelf holding knick knacks, cookbooks and even plants. Of course wrought iron bakers' racks can still be used for baked goods but many of these racks are more ornate and used for decorative purposes. Wooden bakers racks or a cross of wood and wrought iron can be used to store dishes, cookware and in come cases double as a wine rack. Pot racks is one of the next ways to beautify your home. Now some even include lighting kits in them to add soft lighting to your kitchen as well as a decorative way to hang and display pots. As we move to bedroom organization, there are closet racks and shoe racks that are easily assembled and ad room to even the most cramped closet. These are usually wire but add second cloths rack, room for shoes and ties to neatly organize your closet.
Beautifully decorated wrought iron bakers racks are sometimes used for showing off a favorite collection in a family room or dining room. They can be used in a guest room or guest bathroom to hold towels, soaps and beauty products for overnight visitors. Instead of using a bulky sideboard you can use a free standing rack that is equipped with drawers or cabinet doors to hold silverware, serving pieces and china. Some are specially designed to fit in a corner so as not to take up very much room. While many interior décor concepts have come and gone, the venerable baker's rack continues to live on. Even though few people bake pie after pie these days, except during the holidays, baker's racks add the storage you need, not only in the kitchen, but throughout the home.
