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.
Baker's racks add the storage you need in the bedroom, too. You can use one to hold a plasma TV while displaying some favorite knickknacks on the racks above. If you love the look of the wire racks but want more display real estate, add glass to the shelves. You can get them cut to fit at any home improvement store. With the addition of the glass, racks add the storage you need and then some, especially if the bottom part of the rack has doors. Baker's racks come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. The traditional rack features one to three wire racks along the top, a spacious tabletop in the middle and the bottom can hold wine, glassware or have doored units so you can keep things out of sight and out of mind. When selecting a baker's rack for you home, you want one that offers the maximum amount of storage, unless you love to make pies, then you want to make sure the racks themselves have plenty of depth and are long enough to hold several pies as they cool.
