Your Guide to Contemporary Hamptons Kitchens

The Hamptons style kitchen is a regal and sophisticated design that has stood the test of time. The contemporary approach sees this go-to kitchen style become sleeker and more streamlined than ever before.

In this article, we are going to be guiding you through the most commonly found components within a contemporary Hamptons style kitchen.

The five core ingredients that contribute to achieving a ‘Contemporary Hamptons’ look are;

Shaker Style Cabinetry
When you think Hamptons you think recessed panel doors. These classy and elegantly designed cabinets add character and dimension to your kitchen without being overstated. With numerous routing options available to choose from, you are sure to find a finish suited to your overall vision. The more contemporary approach to Hampton’s cabinetry is a subtly recessed panel as opposed to something more defined.

Butler’s Sink
This simple and practical addition to the layout takes your kitchen to the next level. A beautiful farmhouse style basin adds so much additional functionality to your space while achieving an aesthetically pleasing design.

The Use of White
While colour is quite often brought into a Hamptons design, white cabinetry is the most commonly used colour scheme due to the blank canvas it provides. Additionally, white is a timeless choice that will keep your kitchen modern for years to come.

Large Island Bench
A vital characteristic of a Hamptons Kitchen is a large island bench with beautiful shaker style cabinetry. Not only is this a stunning design element that acts as the anchor of your kitchen, but it also provides fantastic additional storage.

The splashback of choice for a ‘Contemporary Hamptons’ design is either marble or subway tiles. Both are very modern options that will achieve the right balance of classic and contemporary. With so many marble patterns to choose from, you are sure to find a stone perfectly suited to your space.

Pendant Lighting
The finishing touch and the perfect complimentary element above any island bench are deciding on the right pendant lighting. Here you can express your individuality and personal style to pull together your Contemporary Hamptons look. The more modern approach to this classic design allows you to be a bit more daring with your selection.
