Baker’s RackA baker’s rack is a stylish way to get extra kitchen storage. While originally designed to display baked goods, these racks are now multi-purpose kitchen shelving units that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles.
The most common use of a baker’s rack nowadays is as a decorative storage unit for displaying any number of kitchen items: china dishes, glass stemware, storage jars, wine bottles, bowls of fruit, water pitchers, and much, much more. If you have favorite kitchen items that you want to show off, consider one of these racks as a creative way to display them.
These racks make kitchen storage a lot more ornamental with a variety of styles to choose from. Most commonly, units are made from wood, glass, and metal, or some combination of the three. Most go beyond basic kitchen shelving units, though, by offering drawers, hooks, and wine racks for a greater variety of uses.
Many baker’s racks are flat-backed and fit up against a wall. Others are designed to fit snugly into corners, helping you make the most of small spaces and maximize your kitchen storage. Some models are made with a sleek contemporary design, whereas others capture an old-fashioned, homey feel with curving metals and warm wood finishes.
No matter which style you choose, a baker’s rack makes an excellent accent piece wherever you put it—some people even choose to utilize their racks outside of the kitchen. If you’ve got cute dinnerware or fresh-baked pies to display, then why not pop it into your dining room for guests to admire?
