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.
On looking at the different versions available, you may come across some more sophisticated variations such as the ones with spice drawers and wine racks. Others may let you vary the height in between the different shelves so that you can store the different sizes objects that you have in your kitchen. You may find that there is a compromise that will have to be made concerning functionality on the one hand and style on the other. After all, bakers racks that blend harmoniously into your country kitchen theme are also important. Designs can indeed be varied. Metal such as wrought iron is a popular choice, and the type of decoration as well as the color can further distinguish this. Black, green, gold and bronze all figure in the different color schemes possible. But the choice doesn't stop there. You can also find bakers racks made out of wood, and of course you can always go further yourself to add your own personal touch in painting or decorating the original model.
