5 Aussie Projects That Show How to Create a Hamptons-inspired Bathroom

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.

This Hamptons-inspired ensuite from Three Birds Renovations makes a statement with classic touches and detailed blue tiling.

#1: Embrace classic design

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.

The traditionally styled shaker vanity perfectly fits the Hamptons design style.

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.

#2 Consider traditional taps

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.

#3 Introduce pops of colour

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.

These tiles create a warm and inviting bathroom, even when space is tight.

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.

#4 Relax in a feature piece

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.
