Today’s interior design is all about minimalism, convenience, comfort, and vintage furniture and décor. The combination of these has made the baker’s rack a more popular piece of furniture. It’s versatility allows it to be used in almost any room in your home, for almost any purpose you wish. It’s narrow design makes it popular for organizing small spaces.
Yet even with all of these facts, people don’t often consider adding baker’s racks to their interior design outside of the kitchen. There are actually a lot of ways you can use the baker’s rack in the entryway. Let’s start with why a baker’s rack is the perfect piece of furniture for your entryway.
Narrow profiles good for hallways
A baker’s rack works just fine for a larger foyer, but it may also of appropriate design to work in homes where the entry comes into a standard hallway. (Keep in mind that if you need to make your entryway handicap accessible you probably won’t be able to put a baker’s rack in a standard hallway.) Because these racks are made with very narrow profiles, placing it against the wall still leaves plenty of room for people to make their way by to enter the rest of your home.
The best baker’s rack features for foyers
When you first go online to take a look at the different options for baker’s racks, you may be overwhelmed with more options than you expected. In 2022, a kitchen baker’s rack with drawers will be used in the trendiest entryways. There are a lot of different designs, styles, and features, and you should make sure that you get one that is right for you. Keep in mind that you may need to settle for a baker’s rack of one style and adapt it, particularly if you have already envisioned what you want.
Bakers racks with hooks or posts at the top can also function as coat hangers, while other racks have slots that could easily be used for sorting incoming and outgoing mail. Racks with a wide grate on the upper shelf, you may even be able to hang your umbrellas or canes there. You can also designate shelves for different members of the household, and use the opportunity to keep some things out of easy reach of children.
Enhance the space with additional functional décor
The baker’s rack alone can be practical for most households, but you can make the area even more useful and interesting with some functional décor. Choose a decorative keyboard that you could install next to the baker’s rack. You can also add a coat rack, whether it be the traditional coat stand or the more space-saving wall hooks. An umbrella stand or any other feature that is not already on the baker’s rack should be considered. A mirror is also a good addition when you are on your way out the door.
