This popular style is inspired by homes in a group of villages called the Hamptons in Long Island, New York. The Hamptons is the playground of the rich and famous.
The perfect Hamptons style kitchen consists of classic styling, a light colour palette and lots of natural materials and light.
Classic Hamptons kitchen design is open and inviting often with large central island benches that become a gathering point when entertaining.
Hamptons Kitchens feature impeccably detailed white cabinetry, often with a frame around the perimeter of the panel. These are sometimes referred to as shaker-style cabinets.
Continuing with the open feel are high ceilings, exposed beams, and as much natural light as possible from windows and skylights. This allows light to reflect, creating an open feel. This is accentuated by contrasting dark wood benchtops and floorboards.
Large bold lighting like a chandelier, large lampshades or pendant lights are featured above the central, island-style kitchen bench.
Many Hamptons Kitchens feature natural marble benchtops. The sheer amount of colours and patterns allow a subtle touch of individuality. Otherwise, you might choose dark wood benchtops to match your wooden floorboards.
Splashbacks are often classic ceramic subway tiles and feature light colour palettes. Off-whites or pale greys, greens or blues are popular choices. Shelving can include open shelves or cabinets with glass doors.
These traditional lines, clean open colours and subtle detailing create a classic, timeless look.
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. We did this recently for a customer, and the results are superb.
