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.
Some excellent choices of cooking essentials to put in the cabinet area of the bakers rack are the hand mixer and electric mixer, the cake pans and cookie sheets as well as muffin pans. On top of the bakers rack might be a great place for you to place your canisters with the sugar, flour and other important baking ingredients. The possibilities are limitless to what you can place inside and on top of the bakers rack. Bakers racks can be purchased in a varying array of colors and materials, so it should be simple for you to get one that will match your existing theme within your kitchen. Among the most popular of bakers rack are the metal, usually available in black, chrome, and hunter green. Not saying these are the only available colors at all. Another popular baker rack is the wooden ones, widely available in many wood finishes, painted and unpainted. For the individuals that prefer to add their own personal touch to their furniture, you can even buy an unfinished wood bakers rack.
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.
