A baker rack offers a practical solution to storage shortage for your kitchen. Not only does a baker rack offer additional storage but they also come in different types to suit each individuals storage needs. I will go over the differences of the four different types of baker racks available today. A corner bakers rack is a great choice if you are low on space. A corner bakers rack comes in styles of wood and wrought iron. You also get shelving options from a choice of three shelves up to a choice of seven. With your corner bakers rack stored neatly in your kitchen corner you can display your favorite plant, cookie jar or a favorite dish you may have. A metal bakers rack is a great addition if you do a lot of baking. The adjustable shelving make it a great idea for placing your cooked items to cool down. Some varieties come with wheels which make moving the metal bakers rack around your kitchen an ease to have at an arm's reach.
Kitchen racks today are used more for decoration than for storage. Kitchen racks, or bakers racks, as they were once called many years ago are now used in many other rooms of the home. Some of these racks have wine racks built in and some have drawers that pull out. The original bakers rack was made for cooling baked goods and was used not only by commercial bakers but also by the women of the home since the seventeenth century. The concept of these racks was to have open shelving which was very important in speeding up the cooling process for all those great home baked pies and goodies.
When shopping for bakers racks, bear in mind that the best selection may just be online. While you may happen on racks in furniture stores, the selection may be extremely limited, or perhaps, non-existent. But online retailers have an endless selection in all styles, materials, colors and price points. Bakers racks run anywhere from $200 and up, depending on the materials, manufacturer and features. Many offer variations on the theme, adding such thoughtful touches as a built in wine rack, a drawer for storing cheese knives and napkins or have doored units below so you can store your favorite household items or seasonal cookware. In fact, these doored units are great for keeping your favorite pie pans and baking items, just in case the mood hits you and you want to tap out a few pies for dinner. But don't be too surprised if you find your bakers racks making their way into other rooms in your home. They work well in a guest room to display knickknacks or in the master to serve as a dressing area. Outdoors, they are terrific in the garden, replacing the traditional and often boring garden center with a more delicate, lovely place to tend to your flowers and plants.
