A bakers rack can be a nice addition to a kitchen and can be an ideal storage unit for wine glasses, stemware, and even wine bottles. In modern kitchens bakers racks are also used to display family treasures like vases or the traditional crystal ware. Bakers racks can serve a decorative purpose by filling extra space in the kitchen in which case they are better utilized to house your collections of glasses, coffee cups or even beer mugs. However, in most cases bakers racks are utilized in a functional manner meaning they serve as essential pieces of furniture in a kitchen and relieve it of clutter by containing the extra accessories like recipe books as well.
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.
On the top part of the bakers racks you have a number of options for uses. These are the shelves where the baked goods would set to cool. Now you can use this space as a display area. If you have some especially precious country kitchenware pieces you may want to show them off on the shelves so all your visitors can appreciate them. Or if you want to show off that you really can do some down home country cooking, you may want to use this space in the bakers racks to display your country cookbook collection or recipe holder. Some kitchens are a little tighter for space than others, and you may be thinking that you just can't fit bakers racks into your kitchen. If you have a spare corner, you can. There are corner bakers racks that will slip into that unused space and give you a lot of new and needed storage. You can even use bakers racks with a counter space in the middle as an extra area to prep for meals.
