Hamptons style homes have grown in popularity over the past few years and here on the Sunshine Coast it’s easy to see why. The Hamptons style is defined as cool, classic and sophisticated meets rustic, casual and beachy – a bit like being on a holiday!

We’ve pulled together the top list of interior design features to help you recreate the Hamptons style in your new home.

Hamptons style homes rely on light coloured benchtops – white, blue, grey or timber – ideally a stone-look such as marble, terrazzo or granite. Opt for natural materials – they’re on trend right now and they aren’t going anywhere! Check out the Caesarstone https://www.caesarstone.com.au/perfect-pairings/get-the-look range here.


The most common style of cabinetry in Hamptons style homes is shaker-style cabinetry – this style has recessed panels, making it look like it’s framed, and show off a minimalist style with clean lines. The team at Kitchens By Design http://www.kbdqld.com.au/ are great with shaker-style cabinetry and are up to date on all the latest trends.

French Doors

The Hamptons style is all about light-filled spaces, so French Doors are a perfect option. They also allow you to take advantage of surrounding views.


There’s a few options here when it comes to flooring. You can opt for a classic timber floor or timber look, or choose stone tiles for a classier look and feel. You can also safely choose a lighter colour floor (greys, birch, bamboo or oak), or go with a more contrasting dark floor. We work with the team from Metro Tiles https://www.metrotiles.com.au/locations/sunshine-coast and Sunshine Coast Flooring Xtra https://www.flooringxtra.com.au/birtinya/.

Light Fittings

The trend here is to go big! Think pendants and even chandeliers. In terms of materials, think wrought iron, brushed metals, copper and stainless steel. On the other hand, we’ve also seen some fabulous rattan and bamboo pendants which provide a more beachy feel – perfect for the Sunny Coast!

Colour palette

When it comes to colours for your Hamptons home, think of the colours you’d typically find at the beach; blues, soft greens, sand, stone and warm whites. You can accent these with greys, black or navy.
