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.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
A bakers wine rack is a nice piece of furniture to display your favorite wine on. It is nice to have your dinner wine at hand for serving up your guests. You can store your wine glasses on the shelves provided so you have your bar ware all in one serving area. Some of the bakers wine racks come with storage baskets and if not then it is pretty easy to go and pick out your own to hold wine openers and utensils. A wrought iron bakers rack comes in many different sizes. So if you happen to have a lot of space you might want to look at some of the larger styles available. If you are placing your wrought iron bakers rack in a smaller area or in a sun room then you will want to look at the small baker racks available. The larger styles are great for holding some of your canisters, extra dishes or for hanging your pots and pans on.
