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.
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.
