It’s no doubt there’s synergy with the beach-side Hamptons style and the Australian way of life.
With this in mind, a white and nautical blue colour palette, natural materials and the overall classic aesthetic of the Hamptons is becoming a popular choice in Australian bathroom design, embracing the indoor and outdoor lifestyle we love living.
To create your own Hamptons-inspired bathroom, we’ve broken down the success factors of five Australian bathrooms that nail the Hamptons look.
Hamptons is all about sticking to the classics. Achieve the look with traditional design that embraces a predominantly white palette, with touches of colour like nautical blue — either as a feature or as a subtle touch in styling.
White cabinetry is another key element of a Hamptons-inspired bathroom. There’s plenty of storage in a typical Hamptons style vanity, like this traditionally inspired shaker style piece used in this bathroom in Dunmore, NSW.
Contemporary takes on traditional taps and accessories fit right in with a Hamptons bathroom. Whether you opt for a standout three-piece tap set or a single mixer with heritage design, we recommend sticking to classic chrome or monochromatic matte black.
Hamptons-inspired bathrooms revel in the beauty of more traditional tap configurations, but that doesn’t mean you always have to a hob-mount design. This bathroom in Rose Bay, NSW uses a classic three-piece tap set in a wall-hung configuration for maximum impact.
Tiles play a big part of a Hamptons-inspired bathroom, from classic white subway tiles to more intricate herringbone or fish scale tiles. Stick to celebrating one colour throughout, whether that’s a deep blue or a pastel like grey or green.
We love when a patterned tile becomes the hero of a space, like this beautiful bathroom from Three Birds Renovations. Marble balances out the stunning tiles and chrome fixtures, with beautifully intricate veins that create a unique bath space for the family to enjoy.
The Hamptons bathroom is all about creating a relaxing and inviting space, so choose a feature piece that relaxes you. For many people, it’s a bathtub that captures your eye and evokes joy, like this freestanding bath.
