Get the Look: The Timeless Hamptons-Style Bathroom

The Hamptons aesthetic, synonymous with elegance and timeless charm, is not just a design choice but a lifestyle embraced by homeowners and design enthusiasts alike. In this blog post, bathroom remodel contractor DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Wilmington shares how you can achieve this serene and luxurious look for your bathroom.

Understanding the Hamptons Style

Originating from the affluent Hamptons area of Long Island, New York, this style combines luxury with relaxation. It’s characterized by its use of a light and airy color palette, sophisticated fixtures, and a blend of textures to create a space that feels both upscale and welcoming. The goal is to create an environment that evokes the tranquility of a coastal retreat with a polished aesthetic.

Color Palette and Materials

The foundation of a Hamptons-style bathroom is its color scheme. Emphasize white or off-white as the primary color for a bright and spacious feel. Complement this with soft grays, pale blues, and the occasional sage green for a muted yet coastal-inspired palette. When it comes to materials, Carrara marble is a classic choice for countertops and flooring, offering a luxurious touch. For cabinetry, consider the timeless Shaker style, known for its simplicity and elegance.

Fixtures and Fittings

The choice of fixtures and fittings plays a significant role in Hamptons-style design. Opt for ornate tapware in finishes such as chrome or brushed nickel to add a touch of tradition. Freestanding baths with soft curves are central to the Hamptons look, serving as a lavish focal point for relaxation. In showers, consider incorporating a rain shower head to enhance the spa-like feel.

Lighting and Window Treatments

A Hamptons-style bathroom is bathed in natural light, making generous-sized windows a key design element. When privacy is a concern, white plantation shutters are an excellent choice for controlling light while maintaining aesthetics. Supplement natural light with elegant, understated light fixtures to ensure the bathroom is well-lit at all hours.

Tiles and Accessories

Subway tiles are a staple in the Hamptons-style bathroom, offering a clean and timeless look. Consider mixing in patterned mosaic tiles as a feature in the shower or behind the vanity for added interest. When accessorizing during a bathroom renovation, be sure to keep it minimal to avoid clutter. Use glass jars for essentials, and add pops of color with plush towels or an elegant vase. 

Achieving Cohesion

Creating a harmonious Hamptons-style bathroom involves careful selection of each element to ensure they complement one another without overwhelming the space. From the paint color to the style of the taps, each choice should contribute to an atmosphere of understated luxury and comfort. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Wilmington is dedicated to bringing this vision to life, offering professional guidance and expertise in creating your ideal Hamptons-style bathroom.
