Hamptons Style Kitchen
The Hamptons-style kitchen is a popular opulent choice for homeowners. Inspired by the stunning kitchens well-known to the coastal playground of the rich and famous on Long Island, New York, these kitchens are now gracing many homes around Australia.
It’s all about elegance, grace, and style while adding a dash of relaxed comfort and high-end functionality. These kitchens are kings for entertainment, cooking, and offering a relaxed feel while relating to the coastal feel of the area. They incorporate luxury style while providing a comfortable, relaxing and inviting atmosphere.
The Hamptons kitchen showcases coastal living at its best alongside natural materials, plenty of light, and traditional lines. Light, bright, and breezy! The great news is, you do not need to live on the coast to invite this luxury design concept into your home.
Hamptons style kitchens need a good amount of space and a decent dash of light. It’s all about creating an abundantly beautiful, sophisticated, and bright space. High ceilings are a common feature, with large sweeping benchtops, specially-designed cabinetry with carefully crafted mouldings, and large windows streaming with natural light.
Classic Hampton's hallmarks include light and beautifully-detailed cabinetry, large windows, and an impressive focal island bench. Other features also include exposed beams, natural wood features, and pale colours.
White and bright natural stone benchtops, combined with white detailed cabinetry and darker wood floors can ground the space, while adding to the natural and beautiful appeal this style showcases. Many stunning designs also incorporate darker coloured cabinetry including blues and greens – bringing in the sea to the colour coastal concept. However, traditionally these kitchens are predominantly white or light sand colours.
The extravagant island bench is certainly the focal point in these kitchens. Made from natural stone, with marble being the traditional and preferred option, they offer ample prep space, storage, and a comfortable place to socialise.
Good lighting is paramount. If you are unable to provide ample natural light, clever use of statement lighting options can allow this style to become the stand-out in your home.
Popular cabinetry is simple and elegant with frames and custom moulding alongside interesting and inspirational knobs. From the trademark shell designs to the more simple options, recessed panelling, decorated cornices, and corbels also add to this stunning design choice.
Add in natural elements to complement the design including wooden or cane bar stools, timber details, and open shelving.
The Hamptons style kitchen perfectly suits larger, open-plan kitchen areas, although clever design and layout can see this style applied in a more modest area. This style is less-suited to small spaces.
Perfectly suited to new homes that boast ample kitchen space and high ceilings, the Hamptons kitchen is equally at home in an older home that already contains some of the visual aspects such as exposed beams and expansive ceilings. Large windows that offer streaming light are also common features of this design concept. Continuing the design concept throughout the home will allow this choice to flow with your entire abode, bringing the coastal, relaxed, and inviting feeling into your everyday life.
The Hamptons kitchen is a beautifully constructed design that provides warmth and elegance at its best. They not only look stunning in the right spaces but also contain highly functional features hidden behind the classic design. They offer a relaxed feel while retaining a high-end of sophistication and lightness.
