By now, you’re probably familiar with the concept of an outdoor kitchen.

By now, you’re probably familiar with the concept of an outdoor kitchen. They’re located on the back deck or patio. Even though it’s highly common for most homes to have a designated grill area, the outdoor kitchen takes that idea to the next level. So, it stands to reason that you could also migrate such a design inside your home. We’ve put together a list of ideas for where to place a secondary kitchen. These spaces can then help you with meal prep or clean up after all the dishes need to be washed!

Another Kitchen Dedicated to Meal Prep
If you have enough floor space for it, a second kitchen adds a huge amount of flexibility to your home. In this case, the secondary kitchen can be dedicated to meal prep. It goes by a less than appealing name (the “dirty kitchen” ), but it serves a functional and practical purpose. Plus, this means that your main kitchen remains a space to entertain your guests and not worry about clutter piling up.

Guest Suite Kitchenettes
Guest suites are prime locations for secondary kitchens. However, since there’s less usable space in here, you’ll have to think outside the box. That’s where the kitchenette concept enters the picture. These kitchens are smaller counterparts to the larger ones inside the main house. All of the necessary appliances are there. So if you’ve got a pool house in the backyard positioned by the swimming pool, this is a way to increase efficiency and privacy at the same time.

Adding a Wet Bar in an Unexpected Area
These days, life seems even more hectic and stressful. That’s why it’s even more important to take some time to decompress. Do you have a private library arranged in a basement or loft space? Consider adding a wet bar-style kitchen to it! In the wet bar zone, food is left in the background. Instead, classy cocktails and other beverages step into the spotlight. The appliances found here are wine chillers, small refrigerators, a functional sink, and convenient storage for glassware and ingredients.

The Spacious Outdoor Kitchen
The end of summer is coming. But even after Labor Day has come and gone, you don’t have to let the fun in the sun stop. The outdoor kitchen is a fantastic place to enjoy the outdoors while giving your grill a workout. Beyond the grill, though, some enterprising homeowners also include smokers and dishwashers to help cut down foot traffic between the house’s exterior and its interior.
