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.
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.
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.
