Most bakers' racks will have a main shelf that is wider than the rest of the selves this is because it was classified as the working area for bakers. The remainder 3 or 4 shelves will probably be all the same width and were usually used for storing baking equipment. Many bakers would set these racks up against or near a wall with a window for opening and cooling the baked goods. You can also use them for displaying houseplants in a sunny window location in a different room other than the kitchen. Some racks are not free standing on the floor; some hang from the ceiling and are used as cookware racks and pot racks. Many are attached to the wall for dish racks or spice racks.
Beautifully decorated wrought iron bakers racks are sometimes used for showing off a favorite collection in a family room or dining room. They can be used in a guest room or guest bathroom to hold towels, soaps and beauty products for overnight visitors. Instead of using a bulky sideboard you can use a free standing rack that is equipped with drawers or cabinet doors to hold silverware, serving pieces and china. Some are specially designed to fit in a corner so as not to take up very much room. While many interior décor concepts have come and gone, the venerable baker's rack continues to live on. Even though few people bake pie after pie these days, except during the holidays, baker's racks add the storage you need, not only in the kitchen, but throughout the home.
On looking at the different versions available, you may come across some more sophisticated variations such as the ones with spice drawers and wine racks. Others may let you vary the height in between the different shelves so that you can store the different sizes objects that you have in your kitchen. You may find that there is a compromise that will have to be made concerning functionality on the one hand and style on the other. After all, bakers racks that blend harmoniously into your country kitchen theme are also important. Designs can indeed be varied. Metal such as wrought iron is a popular choice, and the type of decoration as well as the color can further distinguish this. Black, green, gold and bronze all figure in the different color schemes possible. But the choice doesn't stop there. You can also find bakers racks made out of wood, and of course you can always go further yourself to add your own personal touch in painting or decorating the original model.
