Kaboodle 400 x 720mm Alpine Door
Based on the classic American-style holiday homes of Long Island, New York, the Hamptons look has evolved into a distinctive aesthetic that’s instantly recognisable and almost universally beloved. The look features white timber trims, complemented by a crisp palette of navy or black and white. Externally, consider picket fences, gables and timber fretwork, while internally it’s about texture rather than colour and enduring style rather than fleeting trends.
With its enduring appeal and relaxed vibe, the Hamptons look can work in almost any context, but is ideally suited to coastal areas. The Shaker profile reigns supreme in Hamptons-style homes – get the look with Kaboodle ‘Alpine’ panelled cupboard doors, teamed with cup pull handles and mushroom knobs. Hamptons style is big on light and classic white answers the brief nicely. Materials like glass bring a sense of airiness – try glass-panelled wall cabinets or a lantern-style glass pendant light – while reflective finishes, like glossy subway tiles or a white ceramic sink, will help bounce light around the room.
The white base of a typical Hamptons kitchen is easy to build on to create a look that perfectly suits your style. Keep it monochrome, or introduce a hint of coastal-inspired colour in pale grey-blue tiles; opt for modern, sleek tapware or make it more traditional with a heritage-inspired mixer.
Hamptons kitchens often include an element of luxury, most notably in natural materials like marble. Harness this look with family-friendly laminate benchtops or ceramic tiles, which capture the luxe look of marble without the cost or upkeep.
