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.
Bakers racks started life, as their name suggests, a simple, freestanding rack with shelves and hooks for storing different kitchen utensils and other culinary items. They are typically open in their design so that you can see at a glance what you have and pick the right utensil from where it's hanging on its hook. Some versions have a closed cabinet space for the lower half of the rack, but the upper half, extending to a height of five or six feet, is almost invariably open. If this space-optimizing solution seems like the right one for you, then take some measurements to find out how much linear wall space you have available or what your corner space can be. Take note of the style of your kitchen: a modern style will suggest a more contemporary bakers rack or perhaps even a professional version in stainless steel. When you've reviewed the situation and perhaps also thought a little about what you want the rack to do (shelves, hook space, cupboard space if appropriate), then check out the different offerings to select a quality product that is within your budget.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
