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.
Most bakers racks are just wide enough to occupy an optimum space without being awkward. Typically bakers racks measure about 3 feet in width, but the height is left to the manufacturer and the buyer. Where storage is the main criteria, bakers racks are equipped with drawers and compartments or even cabinets tailor made to house the numerous kitchenware that would otherwise clutter up a decent kitchen. Some bakers racks can be wall mounted, but such furniture pieces are rare because people seem to prefer a sturdier version. An addition of shelves into a bakers rack is another great way to create extra space for storing dinner plates or baking trays and other baking accessories.
