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.
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.
