What is a modern Hamptons style kitchen?

Imagine a kitchen that is polished, elegant, and inspired by seaside living. Hamptons style kitchens get their name and association from the prestigious enclave of coastal communities at the eastern end of Long Island, New York.

The style blends contemporary kitchen elements with a nod to the traditional, built-to-last Shaker style kitchen. Read on to explore the specific features that make up the Hamptons kitchen.

Hamptons style kitchen features

These kitchens showcase a classy mix of modern and traditional styles, with several noteworthy features:

White or pale neutral interior

This colour palette creates an airy and spacious interior.

Dark wooden flooring

The element of contrast that is highly coveted in contemporary kitchens is on display in the Hamptons style as well. Darker floors bring out the brightness of the interior colours.

Oversized pendant lighting

While natural light should be the priority, oversized light fixtures give the kitchen a cool modern edge.

Marble or wooden kitchen benchtop

Classic marble or wooden benchtops give the kitchen warmth and texture.

Large kitchen islands

Functionality is key in a Hamptons kitchen. Large islands mean more benchtop space to prepare and share meals. They also provide more storage.

Shaker style cabinetry

Framed panel cabinets, inspired by the Shaker style kitchen, are popular choices for their added warmth and symmetry.

Timber walls and ceiling

The look of panelled ceilings complements the Hamptons style kitchen, as does the warmth from exposed wooden beams.

Natural, seaside-inspired decor

To complete your coastal Hamptons style kitchen, pepper your space with natural textures like rattan, wicker, light coloured woods, and jute.

What kind of tapware is found in a Hamptons style kitchen?

Hamptons tapware is often more traditional in contrast to ultra-modern tapware. Hampton style kitchen sinks also tend to be wider and shallower to make preparation easier.

Are Hamptons style kitchens the same as galley kitchens?

The two styles can certainly be woven together. The highly efficient, functional layout of the galley kitchen can be similar to that of a Hamptons kitchen. Likewise, Shaker cabinetry is common in both kitchen styles.

The main difference between the two is that galley kitchens can be ultra-modern or monochrome, whereas a coastal Hamptons style kitchen typically has more traditional or vintage touches, open shelving, and more open space.
