How to Create a Stunning Hamptons-Style Kitchen

The kitchen is often described as the heart of the home as it is where the family gathers several times throughout the day. So why not use tiles to create a feature in your kitchen with a bold colour or pattern?

A popular design trend is to incorporate colour and texture through the kitchen’s splashback tile. Offering both a functional and an aesthetic value, a splashback tile is a design statement piece that can act as the hero of your kitchen and generally contrasts with the other materials used.

A popular style that is perfect for summer and spring is the Hamptons look. Consider using a cool blue- or ecru-tone subway tile, similar to the tones found by the ocean. Subway tiles come in a variety of shapes such as square, rectangular, hexagonal or penny round. Match with white cabinets, a large island, oversized pendant lights, bar stools and dark floors to achieve the classic Hamptons-style kitchen.

Your tile should always be sampled in the space before making a final decision, as tile colours look different in different lights. A contrasting grout colour should only be used with small tiles like subways or mosaics where your intention is to highlight a pattern, otherwise you should match your grout to your tile.

With so many splashback ideas to choose from, you can recreate a style you love or design something completely your own.
