Purchase A Bakers Rack

Purchase a Bakers Rack

A baker’s rack is a piece of furniture that can add beauty and functionality to your home. A well-chosen baker’s rack can enhance your décor while providing great storage. Baker's racks come in all shapes, sizes, styles and price ranges, so you’ll want ask yourself a few questions and do a little research before making a purchase. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Determine how you will use your baker’s rack. Do you want to simply display your special treasures and a few cookbooks? Or do you need some serious storage space with cabinets and lots of shelving? Are you eager to finally have a place for those specialty wines? Would you like to be able to hang your pots and pans?

2. Decide if you prefer wood or metal, and what finish will go well with your existing décor. Wood baker's racks can be painted any color or finished in mahogany, walnut or cherry. Shelves can be wire, wood or glass. Cabinets can be open or enclosed by doors of wood or glass.

3. Know your budget. Baker's racks range in price from as little as $99 to well over $1000. When you begin to shop, knowing what you want to spend will narrow down the choices considerably.

4. Decide if you want to shop online or buy directly from a retail store. Online prices may be more affordable, but often shipping costs are considerable. Also, you may have to assemble the piece when it arrives at your home. At a local retail store, you can see and feel the available baker's racks, but prices are apt to be higher. Both online and local retail shopping are worth looking into.

5. Start shopping! A couple of good websites are listed in the Resources section.
