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.
Along with being practical selection, a bakers rack is also a furnishing that is extremely appealing to the eye thanks to the different materials that it can be crafted out of. For example, you can get one that is made out of eye-catching wrought iron that features elegant scrollwork and a smooth, oil-rubbed bronze finish. Or, you can get one that has a base crafted out of wrought iron that is beautifully complemented by glass shelving. There are also ones crafted from wood and other materials as well like stone or marble. All of these materials create stunning furnishings that are sure to please.
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.
