Hamptons style in Australia has evolved with Classic, Country, Coastal, Tropical and Modern sub-styles.
That is why Intrim has a design partnership with Natalee Bowen, Indah Island the ‘Queen of Hamptons’ to curate a collection of the best timber mouldings for each of these Hampton’s styles. Taking the guesswork out of selecting moulding shapes, sizes, and finishes makes what can be an overwhelming decision a simple and enjoyable experience. Hamptons selections in a box is a curated collection of 3 looks for each of the 5 Hamptons styles.
What is a timber moulding? These are the skirting boards, architraves, wainscoting wall panelling (which includes inlay moulds, chair rail or dado rails), beads, trims, cornice mouldings, picture rails, and elements such as skirting blocks, corner blocks, sil nosing, Lining boards and more. To assist you visualize how the different selections look, you can browse the various room images to explore the style.
Skirting remains Intrim’s largest product category, and the trend of larger profiles and more options of designs has been driven by savvy consumers and designers wanting to create their bespoke interiors. Hamptons interiors demand decorative skirting profiles that are larger than the standard home builder commodity offering of 66mm or 90mm. 185mm skirting or larger is the preference for all Hampton’s designs. Team with 90mm or 115mm window and door architraves, layer in some skirting blocks, sil nosing, and beading and the windows and doorways suddenly become a Hamptons design feature. Size and scale are key considerations when selecting timber mouldings so always check the recommendations for your ceiling and door heights to get this right. These details can be found on Intrim’s website.
No Hamptons home is truly finished without Wainscoting wall panelling. Not only is the moulding selection important for the look, the layout and positioning of the panels also greatly affects the finished appearance. You can mix and match the layouts and moulding selections in the Hamptons selection in a box concept.
Where do you use Wainscoting? If you have a two-story design the staircase will be a major feature, and when finished with Wainscoting wall panelling it will be a Hampton design feature you will fall in love with. Wainscoting can be full height or lower third under a Dado or Chair Rail. The option you select will is totally down to style preference and budget. Adding Wainscoting to every room can be more than some budgets will allow, so focus on areas such as entrance and hallways, main living spaces, the main bathrooms, and master bedrooms to get the biggest impact. The investment to create the wow factor with timber mouldings translates into real increases in your property value.
