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.
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.
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.
