The bakers rack has also gained that special favor in the home. What used to be used primarily by the professional baker is now used as a decorative shelf holding knick knacks, cookbooks and even plants. Of course wrought iron bakers' racks can still be used for baked goods but many of these racks are more ornate and used for decorative purposes. Wooden bakers racks or a cross of wood and wrought iron can be used to store dishes, cookware and in come cases double as a wine rack. Pot racks is one of the next ways to beautify your home. Now some even include lighting kits in them to add soft lighting to your kitchen as well as a decorative way to hang and display pots. As we move to bedroom organization, there are closet racks and shoe racks that are easily assembled and ad room to even the most cramped closet. These are usually wire but add second cloths rack, room for shoes and ties to neatly organize your closet.
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.
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.
