Apart from minimalist and contemporary kitchens, our nation adores a Hamptons style kitchen. We love its calm elegance and classic coastal appearance. We can’t resist its sophisticated beauty.
In this blog, we’ll show you one stunning example of it. Look at it and appreciate it’s old world charm. See how it translates into this modern home. Of course, we’ll also list down the things that make this kitchen design desirable. That way, you’ll get ideas on how to design your own. 💙
A Hamptons style kitchen always features any tile or a marble slab splashback, as long as it looks luxurious. In this house, the designers dared to do something different. They arranged small Carrara marble tiles in a herringbone pattern. Viola! They created a splashback that steals everybody’s attention.
Tip: Do not be afraid to use modern tile shapes. Try hexagon or penny mosaic tiles (shown below).
For the benchtop, the designers used a white granite with grey specks. It’s gorgeous and it matches with the Carrara marble splashback.
When it comes to function, granite is one of the most durable stone used as countertop. It’s heat resistant. It won’t scratch, it’s low maintenance, and it never fades. Above all, granite slabs are not too expensive.
White shaker cabinets
Clashing with the modern splashback is the 18th Century shaker cabinets. This type of cabinetry is a major element of a Hamptons style kitchen. It’s simple, yet it’s durable and functional.
In this kitchen, the designers custom-built the cabinets with doors that flush next to each other. Then, they coated it with semi-gloss white paint. They also screwed ornate handles on each door.
Wooden vinyl floors
Light wood floors and white cabinets are an interesting combination. The floors complement the cabinetry, and the cabinets come to life. Timber also fills this kitchen with warmth.
Tip: The floors and the cabinetry are both big-ticket items. Opt for a timeless look.
The last notable thing in this kitchen is the amount of storage it offers the homeowner. It’s immense! It’s got lots of cabinets, drawers, plus open shelves for books!
