Effortlessly chic with a casual vibe, it’s little wonder that many people looking to update their kitchen opt for the Hampton style. This style originally takes its inspiration from The Hamptons, an exclusive seaside area in Long Island, and the design features will help to effortlessly transform your kitchen. Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at the Hamptons style kitchen and the benefits of adopting this concept in your new kitchen.
Fits with the style of most homes
It can be difficult choosing a new kitchen design – some styles you might love but just don’t fit in well with the rest of the house. With the Hamptons style, there is a focus on a neutral palette when it comes to the colour scheme which means it tends to blend seamlessly with the rest of the house. With the minimalist look the Hamptons style favours, you don’t need to worry about your new kitchen clashing with nearby areas.
Creates a sense of light and space
The Hamptons style is all about bringing in natural light and using a neutral palette to open up the space. For this reason, a Hamptons kitchen is a particularly good option for smaller kitchens as the layout and styling will work together to create a sense of light and space. If you’re worried about the colour scheme looking too stark, you don’t need to worry. It’s all about bringing light, soft colours into the space with muted greys, blues and greens being popular choices as well shades of white.
Provides a relaxed feel for the home
The kitchen serves as the focal point of the home and although the Hampton’s style has elegant features, there is also an emphasis on a relaxed, coastal vibe which will help set a chilled out tone for your whole house. Although a Hamptons kitchen will easily accommodate any entertaining you can throw at it with features such as large island benches and plenty of overhead storage, there’s little formality and guests are able to relax and enjoy the space.
Add some character
The beauty of a Hamptons style kitchen is that it allows you to add unique touches and bring your own character to the space. Styling options such as cane baskets for storage, nautical themed accessories, oversized pendant lights and decorative bar stools can all contribute to the classic, coastal feel of the Hamptons kitchen while also giving you the opportunity to inject your own personality. You can also consider statement features such as marble benchtops and splashbacks to add some further sophistication to the space.
