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.
Some racks are even large enough to hold a microwave, convection oven or toaster oven on the tabletop. Alternately, you can keep your mixer and bowls there, ready to go at a moment's notice should you get the pie making bug. If you love baker's racks, you may also want to get one for your patio. Baker's racks add the storage you need there, too. They are terrific as a gardening stand, allowing you to pot new plants with ease. With some hooks you can hang your gardening tools along the edge of the rack and use the tabletop to do your planting. Empty pots can go up above and you can place potting soil and fertilizer down below. Or you can use the baker's rack as a planter, putting different sized pots on the various racks. This works really well for a corner baker's rack, which will fit nicely in a small corner of your deck or patio, giving you maximum space for plants, herbs or flowers in a minimal space.
When shopping for bakers racks, bear in mind that the best selection may just be online. While you may happen on racks in furniture stores, the selection may be extremely limited, or perhaps, non-existent. But online retailers have an endless selection in all styles, materials, colors and price points. Bakers racks run anywhere from $200 and up, depending on the materials, manufacturer and features. Many offer variations on the theme, adding such thoughtful touches as a built in wine rack, a drawer for storing cheese knives and napkins or have doored units below so you can store your favorite household items or seasonal cookware. In fact, these doored units are great for keeping your favorite pie pans and baking items, just in case the mood hits you and you want to tap out a few pies for dinner. But don't be too surprised if you find your bakers racks making their way into other rooms in your home. They work well in a guest room to display knickknacks or in the master to serve as a dressing area. Outdoors, they are terrific in the garden, replacing the traditional and often boring garden center with a more delicate, lovely place to tend to your flowers and plants.
