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.
When shopping for bakers racks, bear in mind that the best selection may just be online. While you may happen on racks in furniture stores, the selection may be extremely limited, or perhaps, non-existent. But online retailers have an endless selection in all styles, materials, colors and price points. Bakers racks run anywhere from $200 and up, depending on the materials, manufacturer and features. Many offer variations on the theme, adding such thoughtful touches as a built in wine rack, a drawer for storing cheese knives and napkins or have doored units below so you can store your favorite household items or seasonal cookware. In fact, these doored units are great for keeping your favorite pie pans and baking items, just in case the mood hits you and you want to tap out a few pies for dinner. But don't be too surprised if you find your bakers racks making their way into other rooms in your home. They work well in a guest room to display knickknacks or in the master to serve as a dressing area. Outdoors, they are terrific in the garden, replacing the traditional and often boring garden center with a more delicate, lovely place to tend to your flowers and plants.
