A baker's rack gets it functionality from its simple design. Generally, one will be between four and five feet in height and will have three to five shelves where you can store and display anything that you would like. Sometimes this furnishing can be narrow and long, other times it can be wider and not as long, and you can even get one that is designed to fit in the corner of a room. Basically, it comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and over the years, some modifications have been to this design and now some are available with drawers built right into them along with cabinets, making it pretty easy to stow away any items that might not fit in your cupboards. And, you can even get ones that have glass racks along with wine racks.
If you purchase a bakers rack with solid shelving, the upper shelves will make a perfect space for your cookbook and recipe collection. Instead of having recipes stuffed in drawers and the books strewn around the house, you can have it all organized in one place. You may even be able to prop the cookbook open on one of the shelves, while prepping the ingredients on the counter below. Even though baker's racks, by their name, are expected to be in the kitchen, there are other rooms in the house that can benefit from having a baker's rack. Start with the bathroom. There is never enough storage in a bathroom. But if you were to add a baker's rack with dainty ivy metal accents, it would fit right in and offer plenty of space for linens, and other restroom necessities. Another place in the house for baker's racks is outside of the main house, in the garage. There are always things you would like to be able to find in the garage, and also have them out of the way. A sturdy wood or metal baker's rack can provide the shelving and cabinet space you need.
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.
