Most bakers racks are just wide enough to occupy an optimum space without being awkward. Typically bakers racks measure about 3 feet in width, but the height is left to the manufacturer and the buyer. Where storage is the main criteria, bakers racks are equipped with drawers and compartments or even cabinets tailor made to house the numerous kitchenware that would otherwise clutter up a decent kitchen. Some bakers racks can be wall mounted, but such furniture pieces are rare because people seem to prefer a sturdier version. An addition of shelves into a bakers rack is another great way to create extra space for storing dinner plates or baking trays and other baking accessories.
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 baker's rack gets it functionality from its simple design. Generally, one will be between four and five feet in height and will have three to five shelves where you can store and display anything that you would like. Sometimes this furnishing can be narrow and long, other times it can be wider and not as long, and you can even get one that is designed to fit in the corner of a room. Basically, it comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and over the years, some modifications have been to this design and now some are available with drawers built right into them along with cabinets, making it pretty easy to stow away any items that might not fit in your cupboards. And, you can even get ones that have glass racks along with wine racks.
