Small kitchens are always in need of something very precious, its space. Recently there has been a quick growing popular solution in the form of a bakers rack. Its rapid climb in popularity stems from its inexpensive way of adding style as well as storage space to a small area.
A bakers rack is a free standing unit that may have wire or wood shelves, it may have hooks to hang stuff or just simple shelves that allow for you to select what is the best use of the unit. Recently the newer designs in bakers racks may contain wine racks, glass storage, or a faux bar type unit, making the bakers rack one of the most versatile pieces of furniture in your home and at the very least in your kitchen.
When you buy a bakers racks there are a few things to take into consideration. The biggest priority is what are you trying to accomplish. Are you trying to add counter space, storage space or are you just getting one to enhance the décor of your kitchen or dining room. A few other items to consider is the size of the room you are using. Also, what are the features you need? Do you want wood, wire, marble? Also make sure you look for ones of quality that will last. There are many that are inexpensive but do have quality to them. Make sure you take your time assembling it so it is done properly.
When looking at the size you should consider how big your kitchen is. You don’t want the rack to overwhelm the room. If your space is very small, you should consider a simple rack and keep it low key, not getting an overly ornate one. This not only will save your money but it will help not overpower the room. Remember the smaller the area, the smaller the rack you want.
The next thing you should consider is what you want this to do. Do you want it just to be a book shelf? Did you want to add counter space, or workspace to your kitchen. Did you want to store wine in it, and if so make sure you find one with an included wine rack.
Decide up front what features you need. You can choose one with large storage areas to keep plates, and baking pans. You may choose a more decorative version that has a wine rack or glass racks. Some even incorporate spice racks or display drawers. You may decide you would like one with adjustable shelving so that when you have a larger item, you can simple make the shelf higher. Picking right will make this versatile and last a long time.
