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.
A bakers rack can be ideal for an apartment that doesn't have all that much room for storage in the kitchen area. This does not limit them to only be great accessories for apartments, anyone that enjoys cooking and does it frequently will also enjoy the ease a bakers rack can offer. Having all of your important spices, measuring spoons, cake pans, etc. within reach without needing to stretch up into those upper cabinets in your kitchen. For use within an apartment and even a smaller home, a microwave can easily sit on top of the bakers rack which gives you the option of having more counter space if needed. Many of the newer bakers racks even offer a place for you to put your wine glasses or other glasses as well as drawers and cabinets within it. Again freeing up space for you and giving you easy access to all of your necessities.
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.
