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.
Corner bakers racks are fast gaining popularity because of their ability to fit into nooks and corners of a kitchen. Bakers racks used in corners usually contain wine bottles and glasses. Corner bakers racks can also be crafted from pine to impart additional elegance if desired. If you are using bakers rack in outdoor settings then these furniture units can be ideal places for storing garden tools and even acting as food and drink centers when you are throwing backyard parties. Additionally they can also be used as plant stands and store all your gardening tools if required. Bakers racks used in an outdoor setting can also act as a decorative piece if you decide to put house potted plants on it. Consumers need to be aware that although pricing models differ greatly based on the material used in bakers racks, the do it yourself or DIY models are not advised. These are a cheaper alternative but in most cases you will end up spending more to assemble it rather than when buying a well crafted bakers rack in the first place.
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.
