Classic Outdoor Kitchen Ideas that Include Pergolas
One of most classic designs for an outdoor kitchen includes a grill station built in to a stone workspace. On either side of the grill you can expand your counter space to include a spot for food prep, sink and other storage.
To enhance your outdoor room even further, an outdoor fireplace adds another dimension to the space and can double as a cooking area with brick oven for baking. The final touch is a wood pergola that pulls everything together. Placing a dining table and chairs just a few steps you’re your grill station simplifies entertaining. Depending on the size pergola you choose, the pergola can be the focal point of your outdoor kitchen, or simply provide the framework for the boundaries of your new favorite hangout.
