DESIGN FEATURES FOR A HAMPTON STYLE KITCHEN
In the lead up to your renovations, it’s a good idea to go along to some high-quality Kitchen showrooms as a source of inspiration. It gives you the opportunity to see which design may suit your space and allows you to visualise the features of different styles. After all, with so many kitchen styles available, it can be difficult to narrow it down.
Today, we’ll be giving you a little bit of style inspiration by sharing with you the features of the classic Hamptons style kitchen.
Classic, coastal living
The Hamptons style kitchen takes inspiration straight from Long Island, New York where a coastal vibe meets sophistication and elegance. A relaxed, casual feel is essential but there should always be a touch of luxury to provide balance. Entertaining is an important aspect of the Hampton’s style and large island benches with plenty of space for bar stools are a common feature.
Bright, open spaces
Hamptons style places an emphasis on open space and the use of natural light. No matter how small your area, a design can be developed which creates a space that provides a sense of openness and flow. If you live in a house with lots of natural light and high ceilings, a Hamptons style design may be the perfect option to blend with the rest of the home.
Minimalist colour scheme
When it comes to the colour scheme of a Hamptons kitchen, a minimalist palette is preferred. White cabinetry is the most popular choice given it accentuates the sense of light while also providing an air of luxury. However, you can also consider muted blues, greens and greys for contrasting colours. Quite often, darker flooring options are adopted with the Hampton’s style which provides a contrast to the neutral colour of the kitchen. You can soften the area with the addition of greenery and other natural textures which are a nod to the coastal style.
For benchtops, marble is the perfect choice for a Hamptons kitchen. It’s provides a natural, timeless feel while adding sophistication. It’s also highly functional and durable which makes it the perfect material to withstand the entertaining that will take place in the area. Ceramic tiles are the most popular choice for splashbacks and subway style tiles fit beautifully with the look. Open shelving or display cabinets are also often used to great effect to provide another level of texture.
