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.
Country: This is the most traditional look for bakers racks and they can will look right at home in a country kitchen. In fact, they will really drive home the theme of the room, since a rack conjures up a simpler time when pies were regularly on the menu in American homes. Mediterranean: This will work nicely in an informal or formal kitchen. Sophisticated in appearance, if is characterized by soft curves and decorative elements, done up in colors such as red, dark green, honey, ivory or black. ustic: This is a very popular style these days. The surfaces of these baker racks are artificially distressed to give them a look of being older, much like a family heirloom. The paint is crackled in appearance and it may even have a few nicks and dents. It will look great in a country, French or even a shabby chic decorated room.
Most kitchens these days have a lot of appliances inside for all sorts of uses. It could be your electronic bread cutter, Panini maker, waffle maker, blender, food processor, can opener or any of a number of other gadgets that help make our cooking time a little bit easier. But you need somewhere to put all of these when you're not cooking. This is what one of the shelves on the Bakers rack can be used for. You can adjust it to the height of the highest appliance and stack the shelf with all of those appliances that are easy to find and see when you need them, but neatly put away for when you don't.
