Kitchen racks today are used more for decoration than for storage. Kitchen racks, or bakers racks, as they were once called many years ago are now used in many other rooms of the home. Some of these racks have wine racks built in and some have drawers that pull out. The original bakers rack was made for cooling baked goods and was used not only by commercial bakers but also by the women of the home since the seventeenth century. The concept of these racks was to have open shelving which was very important in speeding up the cooling process for all those great home baked pies and goodies.
A bakers rack can be ideal for an apartment that doesn't have all that much room for storage in the kitchen area. This does not limit them to only be great accessories for apartments, anyone that enjoys cooking and does it frequently will also enjoy the ease a bakers rack can offer. Having all of your important spices, measuring spoons, cake pans, etc. within reach without needing to stretch up into those upper cabinets in your kitchen. For use within an apartment and even a smaller home, a microwave can easily sit on top of the bakers rack which gives you the option of having more counter space if needed. Many of the newer bakers racks even offer a place for you to put your wine glasses or other glasses as well as drawers and cabinets within it. Again freeing up space for you and giving you easy access to all of your necessities.
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.
