Must-haves for your Hamptons style kitchen renovation

Timeless, elegant, crisp – these are words you typically associate with a Hamptons style kitchen. Drawing its name from an area in New York City, well known for affluent homes, a Hamptons style kitchen is often luxurious and impressive as it embraces a timeless design. When considering a Hamptons style kitchen, there are a few key features that you will want to incorporate.


Hamptons Kitchen

Light, bright colour scheme

White is usually the primary colour in a Hamptons kitchen design. A traditional Hamptons kitchen design will have white cabinets, benchtops, backsplash and walls. Predominately using white in your kitchen design creates a welcoming yet luxurious look. Often timber flooring is used to provide some contrast.

Shaker cabinetry

When designing a Hamptons kitchen design shaker cabinetry is a must. Originating in the 18th century, the shaker furniture designs focus on functionality, timelessness and a minimalist aesthetic. Generally considered an essential element in a Hamptons style kitchen, shaker cabinets are almost always painted white. However, people have started to modernise the shaker cabinets by adding backlit glass doors or painting them in light blue or grey.
