Buying a Bakers Rack

Bakers racks are a perfect enhancement to any kitchen, whether for residential or commercial use. Having been around for many years, this decorative item adds a touch of charm as well as convenience and efficiency. Today, you will find baker's racks available in a wide array of styles and sizes. For example, some baker's racks feature a nice, built-in wine rack, some have cutting boards, and some are more simplistic, perfect for everyday use.

For most people, kitchen countertops become a catch-all in addition to a place for storing small appliances, leaving little room for other items or work space. The nice thing about using a baker's rack is that they provide a space for some countertop items, which means you have better working space and a more organized kitchen.

Additionally, because there are so many bakers rack designs available today, you will have a number of options regardless of your kitchen style or décor. In other words, if your kitchen is country, Mediterranean, or contemporary, a baker's rack will look great while being functional. Below are just a few of the styles that you might consider: You will even find baker's racks specifically made as space savers such as the corner bakers rack that fits snugly out of the way while still providing all the convenience you need.

? Elegance - A platinum look or brushed bronze finish with marble accents adds a touch of class and elegance. This particular bakers rack design is graceful yet offers a dazzling effect. One marble shelf is perfect for attractive storage and can also be used as a display shelf.

? Shabby Chic - A baker's rack with a wood shelf and rubbed or distressed colored wood looks great in any shabby chic kitchen. The design is clean and simple, which blends in perfectly. This baker's rack is available in a number of color finishes and comes in styles of two, three, or four shelves for added storage and display space.

? Mediterranean - The soft curves and decorative legs make this the perfect choice for both an informal or formal kitchen. The sophistication is subtle with detailing that is warm and inviting. Typically, you would find this type of baker's rack n colors such as black, honey, or dark green.

? Country - Most country kitchens have a specific theme to include teapots, roosters, or fruit, or perhaps a wonderful eclectic look. Regardless, you will discover a number of country themed baker's racks that add warmth and a little whimsy. These racks often have multiple shelves for versatility and some type of hand painted motif.

? Formal - A baker's rack made with wrought iron and a built-in wine rack look perfect in a formal or contemporary kitchen. The wrought iron generally features a nice scroll design that is simple yet beautiful. You will find these racks in pine and wrought iron or mahogany and stainless steel.

? Transitional - Many homes today are being decorated with a transitional look that is both traditional and contemporary. To match this style, a pine or oak baker's rack featuring a wrought iron back, two top shelves, a table top, and one bottom shelf makes the perfect choice.

With baker's racks, the price ranges anywhere from $100 to $2,000 or more. What you pay will depend on the materials used, the manufacturer, style, and size. The key is to determine where the baker's rack will be placed so the appropriate size is chosen. Keep in mind that while a baker's rack is usually set in a kitchen, this piece of furniture also looks wonderful in many dining rooms.
