Baker’s Racks Buying Guide

Not everyone needs a baker’s rack in his or her kitchen, but anyone can benefit from the attractive extra storage a baker’s rack provides. Because baker’s racks contain open shelving, it’s easy to quickly grab an item you need off the rack. Many people use baker’s racks to store a cookbook library. They also use the racks to display collectible dishware or to stock barware for entertaining. The racks do service keeping pantry staples and storing everyday dinnerware as well.

Types of Baker’s Racks

Material and style initially determine what kind of baker’s rack you purchase. Once you know you want a metal rack in a traditional style, you’ll find them in different sizes. Measure the wall space where you plan to park the baker’s rack before you select the perfect one for your kitchen.

Metal

Most baker’s racks are all-metal units. The metal is usually an oil-rubbed bronze or black iron, giving the rack a dark appearance. Some restaurant-style models of metal baker’s racks are made of stainless steel.

Traditional

The most common type of baker’s rack features ornamental scrolls in the metal framework, giving the rack a European provincial look. These racks suit kitchens with other traditional details such as raised-panel cherry cabinets.

Modern

Baker’s racks tend to take on an old-world look but a few take on clean, angular lines. These baker’s racks tend to be all-metal versions.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here are the factors that motivate the purchase of a baker’s rack. Understand the one that pertains to you so you can evaluate the piece effectively.

Storage Capabilities

To gain extra storage in your kitchen, you may turn to a baker’s rack. Be certain the rack is up to the task. If you plan to store cookbooks, make sure the shelves are deep enough and can bear the weight of the hefty tomes. If you need storage for a set of mixing bowls, will the lower shelves accommodate the largest size? Do you need a baker’s rack with drawers or cubbies for small items? If you plan to store dishware or glassware on the rack, does it possess enough cup hooks or stemware glides?

Display Style

The other main reason to include a baker’s rack in your kitchen is for its attractive display space. You may want a focal point on a plain wall, and a baker’s rack can be very ornamental. The open shelves perfectly showcase collectibles. If you want to display heirloom dishes, look for a baker’s rack that incorporates plate rails. Some baker’s racks include wine racks for display of your inventory.
