How To Create A Hamptons Style Bathroom

A Hamptons style bathroom is opulent, and spacious, and features plenty of luxurious marble with crisp white interiors. This timeless and classic style embraces a serious nautical theme while maintaining a clean, uncluttered look that many homeowners love.

Australia isn’t quite the Hamptons (it’s better, in our unbiased opinion), but with its beautiful coastal vibe, creating a Hamptons style bathroom would certainly match the Aussie lifestyle and aesthetic. So, if you want to live out your Hampton dreams in the comfort of your own home, keep reading as we take a closer look at how you can recreate the elegance of a Hamptons-style bathroom and indulge in its understated aesthetic beauty.

The Hamptons Style Colour Palette & Materials

First things first: the Hamptons colour palette and must-have materials. A Hamptons-style bathroom is characterised by a light and airy colour palette that exudes a sense of calm and relaxation. Popular colours include crisp white, soft blues, and soothing greys.

To achieve this look, it's important to choose materials that complement the colour scheme and add texture and depth to the space. Marble, with its classic elegance and durability, is a popular choice for flooring, countertops and basin.

Subway tiles, in a simple and clean design, are often used as a backsplash or in the shower. Meanwhile, shiplap, with its horizontal wooden panels, adds warmth and character to the walls, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Really, any kind of wooden feature will give your bathroom space a genuine and beautiful Hamptons feel.

Hamptons Style Bathroom Fixtures & Fittings

The fixtures and fittings in a Hamptons-style bathroom should be both functional and elegant, adding to the overall aesthetic of the space. Clawfoot tubs, with their vintage charm, are a popular choice and can serve as a stunning centrepiece for the room.

When it comes to basin taps, brushed nickel or vintage antique brass finishes are often used to add a touch of sophistication and warmth.

Meanwhile, pedestal sinks, with their sleek and simple design, are also a favourite and work well in smaller bathrooms.

Get the Hampton Look with Brass & Gold Accessories

Accessories and decor are the finishing touches that can make all the difference in a Hamptons-style bathroom. When incorporating accessories and decor, it's important to strike a balance between simplicity and elegance. Too many accessories can make the space feel cluttered and overwhelming, while too few can leave the room feeling bare and uninspired. By following a less-is-more approach and selecting accessories and decor thoughtfully, you can create a tasteful and inviting Hamptons-style bathroom that exudes both sophistication and relaxation.

Plush towels in white or muted colours can add texture and comfort while complementing the overall colour scheme. Nautical-themed accents such as seashells, driftwood, or ocean-inspired artwork can enhance the coastal feel of the space. Mirrors with decorative frames or elegant light fixtures can also contribute to the luxurious ambience.

Crisp & Clean Hampton Tiles

The luxurious texture and polished finish of Hamptons-style bathroom tiles add a touch of sophistication and refinement to your space. The clean and crisp aesthetic of these tiles is a hallmark of the Hamptons style, elevating the overall elegance of the room. One of the most popular tile choices for this style is Carrara marble, known for its timeless beauty and durability. These tiles can be used to create striking visual accents, whether on the bathroom splashback, in the shower, or around a statement-making freestanding bath.

When selecting tiles for your Hamptons-style bathroom, consider the size of the space and the overall colour scheme. Lighter colours, such as white, cream, or light blue, can create a sense of spaciousness and calm, while darker shades can add depth and drama. It's also essential to choose high-quality tiles that will stand the test of time and maintain their beauty even with regular use.

To create a cohesive look in your Hamptons-style bathroom, consider using the same tile throughout the space, or mix and match complementary patterns and textures. Whether you opt for classic Carrara marble or a more unique mosaic tile, your bathroom tiles are sure to make a lasting impression and take your space to the next level of ultra-luxury living.

Make Your Vanity a Focal Piece

In a Hamptons-style bathroom, the vanity is often a focal point, serving as both a functional and decorative element in the space. To achieve this look, consider investing in a high-quality, elegant vanity with classic lines and a polished finish. White or light-coloured vanities with shaker-style cabinets are popular choices and can provide a clean and timeless look. Consider pairing the vanity with a marble or stone countertop and brushed nickel or brass hardware to add a touch of warmth and sophistication.

To further highlight the vanity as a focal point, consider adding decorative elements such as framed mirrors, sconce lighting, or a statement-making chandelier. These elements can help to draw the eye towards the vanity and create a sense of luxury and refinement. In addition, consider adding accessories such as a vase of fresh flowers, a stack of neatly folded towels, or a decorative tray to help tie the look together and create a cohesive aesthetic.
