Most bakers' racks will have a main shelf that is wider than the rest of the selves this is because it was classified as the working area for bakers. The remainder 3 or 4 shelves will probably be all the same width and were usually used for storing baking equipment. Many bakers would set these racks up against or near a wall with a window for opening and cooling the baked goods. You can also use them for displaying houseplants in a sunny window location in a different room other than the kitchen. Some racks are not free standing on the floor; some hang from the ceiling and are used as cookware racks and pot racks. Many are attached to the wall for dish racks or spice racks.
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.
A bakers rack can be a nice addition to a kitchen and can be an ideal storage unit for wine glasses, stemware, and even wine bottles. In modern kitchens bakers racks are also used to display family treasures like vases or the traditional crystal ware. Bakers racks can serve a decorative purpose by filling extra space in the kitchen in which case they are better utilized to house your collections of glasses, coffee cups or even beer mugs. However, in most cases bakers racks are utilized in a functional manner meaning they serve as essential pieces of furniture in a kitchen and relieve it of clutter by containing the extra accessories like recipe books as well.
