Essential Ingredients For A Hamptons Kitchen
Shaker style cabinetry is the number one ingredient in our Hamptons kitchen recipe. Sometimes called a frame and panel profile, it is a basic yet stylish cabinetry choice which screams Hamptons style. Don’t forget the decorative handles as they are a real feature of this style of kitchen. A chance for you to really contribute your own style flair to the traditional decore.
Stone Bench Tops
Traditionally the stone would be marble, however a more modern and practical option is manufactured stone bench tops. I adore the colours and patterns they are able to achieve with this newer technology. Stone bench tops are hardy and great for a family, while looking gorgeous as well.

This feature really brings a Hamptons kitchen together and is a great place to add a little colour. Subway tiles are a popular choice although marble tiles are another selection gaining momentum.
Pendant lighting is a real feature in Hamptons Kitchens, they add some drama to the space. Often bell shaped, although more recently designed kitchens have seen very contemporary light fittings. Usually glass, however glass with black framing, wicker or metal is also used.
There are so many different versions of Hamptons kitchens, there is no one must have style of tapware, but a feature tap is a must.
It is a pretty simple recipe, the Hamptons kitchen recipe, perhaps you can add some of these elements to your new kitchen, or keep the ideas stored away for when the time comes!
