If you purchase a bakers rack with solid shelving, the upper shelves will make a perfect space for your cookbook and recipe collection. Instead of having recipes stuffed in drawers and the books strewn around the house, you can have it all organized in one place. You may even be able to prop the cookbook open on one of the shelves, while prepping the ingredients on the counter below. Even though baker's racks, by their name, are expected to be in the kitchen, there are other rooms in the house that can benefit from having a baker's rack. Start with the bathroom. There is never enough storage in a bathroom. But if you were to add a baker's rack with dainty ivy metal accents, it would fit right in and offer plenty of space for linens, and other restroom necessities. Another place in the house for baker's racks is outside of the main house, in the garage. There are always things you would like to be able to find in the garage, and also have them out of the way. A sturdy wood or metal baker's rack can provide the shelving and cabinet space you need.
The bakers rack has also gained that special favor in the home. What used to be used primarily by the professional baker is now used as a decorative shelf holding knick knacks, cookbooks and even plants. Of course wrought iron bakers' racks can still be used for baked goods but many of these racks are more ornate and used for decorative purposes. Wooden bakers racks or a cross of wood and wrought iron can be used to store dishes, cookware and in come cases double as a wine rack. Pot racks is one of the next ways to beautify your home. Now some even include lighting kits in them to add soft lighting to your kitchen as well as a decorative way to hang and display pots. As we move to bedroom organization, there are closet racks and shoe racks that are easily assembled and ad room to even the most cramped closet. These are usually wire but add second cloths rack, room for shoes and ties to neatly organize your closet.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
