31 Mar Elements of a Hampton Style Kitchen
If your design taste is a coastal, beach style with a touch of class, a Hampton style kitchen may be the perfect fit for you. Hampton style kitchens have a relaxed coastal and casual feel with an elegant design. Inspired by the peaceful seaside lifestyle of The Hamptons of Long Island, New York, Hampton style kitchens reflect a classic coastal look and are designed and built to last.
Hampton Style Kitchen Elements
To plan a kitchen with Hampton style features, consider using classic Hamptons architecture elements such as exposed beams, timber walls and ceilings, wooden flooring, pitched ceilings and open spaces. Pale colours and lots of natural light will also add to the coastal feel of the kitchen style.
Use dark wooden flooring to contrast beautifully with the surrounding white elements of the Hampton kitchen style. A dark timber will add a touch of seaside to the open spaced kitchen area.
Framed panel kitchen cabinets are popular in most Hamptons kitchens for their solid and streamlined detailing. The use of white is an ideal choice when designing a Hampton style kitchen, capturing its light and reflective quality. Blue, green or grey cabinetry adds an interesting alternative to white and works well as they reflect the colours of the ocean.
- Kitchen Bench Tops
Either marble or wooden bench tops are ideal options for a Hamptons kitchen. Wooden kitchen bench tops will add to the coastal feel with natural, organic properties while a beautiful white marble finish is usually chosen for its timeless and classy qualities.
- Kitchen Splashbacks
An elegant coastal theme requires the use of ceramic tiles in pale colours for your Hampton style kitchen splashback. Using small white or grey subway tiles or traditional tiles in a variety of shapes such as square, rectangle or hexagonal will keep to the style.
The classic design of a Hampton style kitchen is timeless and requires significant lighting to accompany its relaxed elegance. Over-sized pendant lights are the perfect choice for a classy Hampton style kitchen’s high ceilings and will complement the large scale of the room.
Open shelving will add to the Hampton style vibe of your kitchen and are a great way to showcase your kitchenware, especially if the items have vintage or coastal elements.
Adding white bar stools is the perfect finishing touch to your Hampton style kitchen. Hampton style furniture never goes out of style – choose classic stools featuring decorative braced hoops and curved legs, made out of natural elements such as oak or walnut.
