The Hamptons.

A rich and famous style, in the playground of the rich and famous.

The perfect Hamptons style kitchen consists of classic kitchen styling, a light colour palette and lots of natural materials and light – perfect for entertaining guests. 

Classic Hamptons style kitchen design is open and inviting often with large central island benches that become a gathering point when entertaining. This is a crucial guiding star with kitchen renovations in mind. 

From Long Island in Suffolk County, New York.  The Hamptons is a lighter and simpler version of French provincial, with cleaner lines, a lot less detail, (such as the corbels, scrolls fretwork.). Usually opting for some simple capping on the top of high cabinets, perhaps a dressed up range hood cabinet above the cooking surface with some light capping. Doors are usually a mild “shaker” style door

Usually white kitchens, but dark contrast colours have been brought in to play in recent years. Stone benches with simple square edges and solid timber benches as well. Curvy handles, but only slightly. Splashbacks can be tiled or porcelain large format.

Cabinetry – Hamptons Style

Featuring white cabinetry with impeccable iconic detail, The Hamptons style incorporates a frame around the perimeter of the pane – commonly known in kitchen design as shaker-style cabinets.

Inclusions that fit within a Hamptons style kitchens are high ceilings, exposed beams, and prioritising natural light from windows and skylights that reflect light around the room. 

Large bold lighting – like a chandelier, large lampshades or pendant lights – are featured above the central, island-style kitchen bench.

Accentuated by contrasting dark wood benchtops and floorboards,
that makes the kitchen feel wider and more open. 


Benchtops and Splashbacks Hamptons Style

Although The Hamptons style kitchen uses natural marble benchtops as a stylistic cornerstone, it doesn’t preclude you from adding a touch of your own individuality, with an infinite amount of colours, textures and patterns available. 

Splashbacks are often based on 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 creating a classic, timeless look in your kitchen.
