This Hamptons-style kitchen is perfect for a large family
The classic Hamptons-style kitchen, perhaps made most famous in the Jack Nicholson film Something’s Gotta Give, has become popular the world over. Known for its effortless elegance, the Hamptons look was just what the homeowners wanted for their new kitchen.
“The owners loved the kitchen in Something’s Gotta Give and wanted a Hamptons-style kitchen, seating on the island to enjoy the view of the river and a place where the children could do their homework and interact with the chef,” says Rob Thomson from The Kitchen Factory Malaga.
The previous kitchen in the home was plain and outdated. It was not functional, didn’t fill the available space and simply looked lost in the large area. “The clients have a large family and needed facilities for preparation and entertaining. The children also like to participate in cooking meals,” Rob explains.
The main design considerations were to maintain spacious areas with easy access to both the appliances and the work areas for the kitchen in the style requested by the client. This classic layout had to blend into the large, open space that incorporated high ceilings. A good work triangle, adequate and functional storage areas and specific areas built to suit the clients’ appliances (coffee machine and Theromix) were also musts.
And from the honed jet-black granite benchtop to the classic-style doors, the new space looks great. The island offers both tremendous views and a practical space for the family to come together, while a large selection of clever storage solutions and everyday practicality.
“This is a magnificent two-storey home with fantastic river views and the kitchen fits in perfectly with the style of decoration,” Rob says. It’s light, airy and spacious with a hint of the special Hamptons style. The result is a very happy client who loves the kitchen.”
