Hamptons Style Kitchens are influenced by a group of villages called the Hamptons on Long Island. Made for the successful and wealthy to relax on the coast, this style translates well in discerning Melbourne residences.
This style is characterised by its white and impecabbly detailed cabinetry. These cabinets feature a frame around the perimeter of the panel (these are sometimes referred to as “Shaker-Style Cabinets”). These traditional lines and detailing create a classic, timeless look that will pass the test of time.
These kitchens are open and inviting with a large central island with bar stools which often becomes a focal point when entertaining. Continuing on the open feel are pitched ceilings, exposed beams, dark timber floors and as much natural light as possible from windows and skylights. If your home has a smaller kitchen with a separate neighbouring dining room, we may be able to remove a wall to create this style.
Benchtops can be dark wood or pale marble, which has come back in vogue. Splashbacks are ceramic tiles and feature light colours such as off-whites or pale greys, greens or blues. Shelving can include open shelves or cabinets with glass doors.
Large bold lighting can include a chandelier or large lampshades which are placed above the central island-style kitchen bench.
