If you purchase a bakers rack with solid shelving, the upper shelves will make a perfect space for your cookbook and recipe collection. Instead of having recipes stuffed in drawers and the books strewn around the house, you can have it all organized in one place. You may even be able to prop the cookbook open on one of the shelves, while prepping the ingredients on the counter below. Even though baker's racks, by their name, are expected to be in the kitchen, there are other rooms in the house that can benefit from having a baker's rack. Start with the bathroom. There is never enough storage in a bathroom. But if you were to add a baker's rack with dainty ivy metal accents, it would fit right in and offer plenty of space for linens, and other restroom necessities. Another place in the house for baker's racks is outside of the main house, in the garage. There are always things you would like to be able to find in the garage, and also have them out of the way. A sturdy wood or metal baker's rack can provide the shelving and cabinet space you need.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
If you are not a baker, you may think the idea of owning a bakers rack is a little bit of overkill. But just because you will not be filling the shelves with a number of loaves of bread and various fruit filled pies every day does not mean a bakers rack can't serve practical purposes in your home. You can have the old world charm of the furniture, but put it to work with more modern uses. Generally, bakers racks would belong in the kitchen, near where all the cooking is done. In today's kitchen that means you can use bakers racks as great places for excess storage. Some bakers racks have cabinets on the bottom that can be used as a way to de-clutter your kitchen counter tops. Think about all those things you have in the kitchen that you periodically use, but generally just take up space. They could be stored in the bottom of bakers racks. This is also a way to hide those modern appliances that can take away from your country kitchen appearance.
