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.
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.
Corner bakers racks are fast gaining popularity because of their ability to fit into nooks and corners of a kitchen. Bakers racks used in corners usually contain wine bottles and glasses. Corner bakers racks can also be crafted from pine to impart additional elegance if desired. If you are using bakers rack in outdoor settings then these furniture units can be ideal places for storing garden tools and even acting as food and drink centers when you are throwing backyard parties. Additionally they can also be used as plant stands and store all your gardening tools if required. Bakers racks used in an outdoor setting can also act as a decorative piece if you decide to put house potted plants on it. Consumers need to be aware that although pricing models differ greatly based on the material used in bakers racks, the do it yourself or DIY models are not advised. These are a cheaper alternative but in most cases you will end up spending more to assemble it rather than when buying a well crafted bakers rack in the first place.
