It will be related to the weather/seasons, animals, and safety. Basically, there won’t be any limitations as long as you can fulfill the needs of outdoor kitchen conditions.

There will be two kinds of outdoor kitchens related to its building. The first one is the freestanding outdoor kitchen and the second one is the house integrated outdoor kitchen. Here are the detailed explanations and examples of those two kinds of outdoor kitchens.

Freestanding Outdoor Kitchen

The freestanding outdoor kitchen is the outdoor kitchen that is built in the form of an individual building. It is built around the garden area. For this, we recommend you not to have it too far from the house building area. It is because you might need to take or put something while cooking there. Or, if you have a patio, it will be great if you build it near the patio so that you can cook and serve the food easily.

Then, for the freestanding outdoor kitchen, there will be divided into two types. The first one is a building with a roof and the second one is a building without a roof or using a pergola. In this case, we recommend you choose the one with the roof so that you can make sure to protect all of your kitchen areas from the bad weather.

With Roof

House Integrated Outdoor Kitchen

In this case, the kitchen will be integrated with the house building. Commonly, it will be in the back terrace area. Or, you can build it separately with the terrace but still, the kitchen sticks to the house building. It is great for you who need to be in the kitchen easily and effectively. No need to walk in the garden area as you just need to go outside from your back door and you will enter your outdoor kitchen directly.
