Today we're taking a look at some pergola outdoor kitchen ideas. Adding an outdoor space to your home not only gives you more living space but it gives you plenty of access to fresh air. While many people think pergolas have to be free-standing, this isn't always the case. Over time the definition has changed, and pergolas can be attached to your home, in the backyard, fully or partially covered, and all different sizes. Pergolas are simply an outdoor space with some sort of ceiling help up by pillars.
An outdoor kitchen goes perfectly under a pergola, and lets you use it even in bad weather. Here are some examples of beautifully created outdoor pergola kitchens you could have in your own home!

1. Full Outdoor Kitchen
Having access to a full kitchen outdoors gives you more options than just putting a grill underneath your pergola. This one is attached to the house and features a stove, dishwasher, sink, and hanging cabinets for your cooking utensils. The roof is covered but the wooden beams give the space better airflow and an even more open feeling. With an additional fireplace, this is a great place to entertain with the addition of some outdoor chairs.
2. Stone and Wood Pergola
This 3D render is an awesome way to do an outdoor kitchen. the dark wood goes well against the light gravel of the yard, and the fireplace is a nice warm touch next to the dining tables. The real kitchen part of this one is the grill, but you can totally use the fireplace for marshmallows, kabobs, and stir fry. The total coverage on the roof makes it a perfect spot to spend the evening, even on rainy days.
3. Over The Top
It's safe to say this pergola is over the top in style. Surrounding the full kitchen and seating area is a short stone wall. In addition to this, the fireplace gives off plenty of warmth in colder months. If you're worried about bugs, they'll be kept out by the screens running along each wall.
4. Small but Stylish
Your outdoor kitchen doesn't have to be large to be a great place to spend time. While some people prefer larger spaces, this pergola kitchen is a small attachment to the house, more like a back porch. With a stylish bar and a covered roof, it's a tasteful place to waste away your evenings.
5. Full Kitchen Poolside
Is there a better way to throw a pool party than with a poolside kitchen and bar? This outdoor kitchen is a great addition for piling up delicious plates of food for the kids or friends to snack on while they're swimming. It has a full stove, sink, and dishwasher, with hardwood counters and fantastic accent lights on the walls.
6. Simple and Sunny
A simple frame and beam roof give this pergola just enough shade to keep you cool on hot days. Parking a grill next to the table is an affordable way to add a makeshift kitchen to space and offers tableside cooking. While not exceptionally stylized, this pergola is a great example of simplicity.
7. Brick Oven Pizzas
This kitchen takes up all of the covered space, but being outdoors allows you to use the beautiful brick oven. With an additional grill rack, you'll be able to flame-grill plenty of dinners for the family. The partially covered patio space next to it is ideal for outdoor sitting, but the kitchen can be used anytime with full roof coverage.
8. Marble Columns
This beautiful marble kitchen sits next to a spacious outdoor patio. The inset stone floors, marble columns and countertops, and arched doorways are stunning. You'll be able to stay cool in the kitchen with the outdoor ceiling fans and nearby pool.
9. Stone Bar
While it may lack overhead coverage, this outdoor kitchen is absolutely beautiful. It features a great stone bar, wooden stools, and a cooking area. Since it's raised off the ground, it's a perfect spot to sit and sip a drink while watching the kids play in the backyard.

12. Black Wicker
This pergola covers a raised porch with privacy walls on the sides. While it doesn't have counter space or sinks, the grill lets you cook dinner tableside. The dark wicker furniture is a nice touch and matches the flooring well.
13. Fiery Hot Cooking Space
Surrounding this traditional brick over with concrete blocks is a great way to protect against fire hazards. You can spend your evening grilling or baking pizzas in the oven and enjoying the fresh air. In addition to the wood oven, it has a stovetop for cooking in pots and pans.
14. Open Fireplace
This setup is perfect for warm weather, as the fireplace and cooking area is separated from the seating area. Thankfully, you won't get too hot because of the fire, but it still lets you enjoy the large cooking fire. With log walls and a gorgeous wood ceiling, this space is a perfect outdoor dining area.
15. Garden Pergola
Situated in the middle of a garden, this beautiful metal-roofed pergola has a larger covered area than a few others on this list. The wood furniture and beams contrast the brick construction. The metal roofing is perfect for sitting under during a rainstorm, and the constant tap of the raindrops will lull you into a peaceful nap.
16. Open Air Pergola
The openness of this pergola makes the space feel much larger than it actually is, with wide openings between each pillar. The stone bases give more structural support to the columns while not obstructing the view of the yard. In addition, it features a full kitchen and grill, fire pit, and cushioned outdoor furniture.
17. Garden Accent
Not only does this pergola feature a full kitchen, but it sits in a beautiful garden. The overall greenery of the garden is broken up by the sharp appearance of the pergola's roof, helping individual plants to stand out. You can dine surrounded by the lush plants and flowers of the garden, which also provide a thick cover of privacy for a more intimate feeling.
18. Florida Room Kitchen
This patio kitchen is surrounded by hurricane windows, letting in plenty of natural light and giving a great view of the yard.

19. Jade Bar
This outdoor kitchen is incredibly simplistic and makes use of some really basic tools to make a great experience. The portable heaters work great for heating tea kettles and pots. Next to the bar is a large seating area with a few tables and chairs to sit guests at, with quick access to the home up the stairs and a great open-air view.
20. Holiday Lights
This backyard kitchen has an open beam roof, perfect for hanging lights and decorations. If you wanted, it's a great place to put a roof or retractable cover, and it's a perfect place to sit and enjoy the sunshine while waiting on dinner to cook.
