Smith & Smith Kitchens Project 17
A perfect example of a modern, Hamptons style, this project fuses traditional and contemporary elements to create a timeless design and hard-working, functional family kitchen. While white is often the go-to colour for the Hamptons aesthetic, Smith & Smith Kitchens opted for a soft, pale blue for this design – a welcome break from the conventional and traditional colour scheme associated with this style.
Designed by Beth Paron on behalf of Smith & Smith Kitchens, this ingenious and innovative kitchen replaced an existing layout, elevating the space into a simplified area for the modern family. Transforming the original U-shape blueprint into an L-shape arrangement that features an island bench and shaker style cabinetry, this formation boosts functionality and accessibility within the kitchen, while improving storage access and convenience.
The inclusion of natural elements was a conscious choice to maintain the stylistic cohesion between the kitchen and the abode. A cost-effective alternative to its natural counterparts, engineered stone benchtops were installed to complement the timber flooring and pastel blue cabinetry.
Hamptons-style luxe comes in the form of a cleverly designed butler’s pantry. Created with a bi-fold door to match the adjacent white cabinetry and maintain the tidy, uncluttered look of the primary kitchen, this secluded ancillary zone amplifies storage space and practicality.
A fully integrated main fridge shares the same shaker style cabinets for an uninterrupted appearance. Maintaining the storage prowess of this design, a wine fridge was also installed to optimise storing capabilities and display the homeowners’ growing collection.
Rounding out this exceptional kitchen is a number of select, high-end appliances for efficient cooking and ease-of-living. A dual NEFF oven, cooktop and accompanying rangehood pair harmoniously with the colour scheme and tie in with the Franke sink to complete this flawless design. Perfectly executed by Smith & Smith Kitchens, this esteemed company delivered the perfect family-friendly, Hamptons-inspired kitchen, in the heart of Hampton.
