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.
Some racks are even large enough to hold a microwave, convection oven or toaster oven on the tabletop. Alternately, you can keep your mixer and bowls there, ready to go at a moment's notice should you get the pie making bug. If you love baker's racks, you may also want to get one for your patio. Baker's racks add the storage you need there, too. They are terrific as a gardening stand, allowing you to pot new plants with ease. With some hooks you can hang your gardening tools along the edge of the rack and use the tabletop to do your planting. Empty pots can go up above and you can place potting soil and fertilizer down below. Or you can use the baker's rack as a planter, putting different sized pots on the various racks. This works really well for a corner baker's rack, which will fit nicely in a small corner of your deck or patio, giving you maximum space for plants, herbs or flowers in a minimal space.
Most bakers racks are just wide enough to occupy an optimum space without being awkward. Typically bakers racks measure about 3 feet in width, but the height is left to the manufacturer and the buyer. Where storage is the main criteria, bakers racks are equipped with drawers and compartments or even cabinets tailor made to house the numerous kitchenware that would otherwise clutter up a decent kitchen. Some bakers racks can be wall mounted, but such furniture pieces are rare because people seem to prefer a sturdier version. An addition of shelves into a bakers rack is another great way to create extra space for storing dinner plates or baking trays and other baking accessories.
