22 Stunning Hamptons Kitchens You Will Love!

Creating a Classic Hamptons Kitchen

The Hamptons interior design style is about refined elegance, and also a sense of comfort, function, and livability. The kitchen is often a key gathering place in a home, so it makes sense that you would want it to capture all of these elements.

A Hamptons style kitchen should be a place where people feel comfortable gathering, entertaining, cooking, and relaxing.

In general, the following are some things to keep in mind:

  • Colour palettes tend to be in line with what you see in other rooms of a home with Hamptons-design style. White, ivory, and neutral  are all colours that are often a central part of the design style. Accent colours might include shades of blue ranging from navy to duck egg blue or gray tones.
  • Natural materials including wood plank floors and marble countertops are important.
  • Along with natural materials, allowing natural light to flood in and create a bright, airy feel is important.

Some specific design elements to remember for a classically beautiful Hamptons kitchen include:

No 1 -  Cabinetry

With cabinetry, Shaker-style doors is always a good choice because it’s a clean style with simple lines and a sense of timelessness. If you want to integrate elements of French provincial design, you might opt for cabinetry with custom elements such as corbel details or turned legs. Most Hamptons cabinets are white, but you could also go for an alternative such as light blue or grey painted cabinets.

No 2 - Centre Island

A large island is often a focal point of Hamptons kitchens not only bring the eye to a central area, but they add additional space for entertaining and dining. Cabinetry under the island can bring additional storage, adding an element of functionality. Sometimes the island can be a way to integrate colour contrast—for example, if the perimeter cabinetry is white, the island cabinetry might be painted a colour like blue or black.
