Types of baker's racks

Versatile kitchen racks come in several different types that often affect use and design. Corner racks are angled in the back so they fit snug into corners and are useful in kitchens or dining rooms without much wall space. They give the corners some use. Wheeled units have casters so kitchen carts can be moved about the room or between rooms while serving guests. Wine racks are designed to hold and display wine bottles so labels are easily seen.

Kitchen rack materials

Kitchen shelving units are made from different materials, which affect how they can be used. Wrought iron racks are safe to use for cooling food in hot pans. Oak shelves are beautiful and decorative to display appliances, dishes, or knickknacks. Marble shelving is cool to the touch and helps lower the heat of cooked foods. Glass shelves are translucent for a modern, contemporary look.

Kitchen shelving features

When selecting baker's racks, there are several features to choose from. For a kitchen that needs lots of storage, opt for a hutch that contains racks, drawers, and cupboards in one for both display and storage. Some units have built-in cutting boards for chopping meats and vegetables without damaging counter tops. For an elegant design, choose iron racks with finials that turn storage furniture into a piece of art. For a more modern look, go with metal geometric designs.

Kitchen organization uses

These versatile racks are complementary in more rooms than just the kitchen. Here are some ways to make use of these beautiful units throughout the home:

  • Place plants on shelves near living room windows
  • Store media such as DVDs, CDs, and video games
  • Offer tea or coffee to guests using the rack as a drink station
  • Keep favorite stuffed animals off the floor in kids’ rooms
  • Display books using a rack instead of a bookcase
  • Place one in the garage for tool storage
