I was excited to be recently invited to write a guest blogpost for Perini Tiles. I wrote a previous post for their blog last year, Tile Trending (here). Given that selecting tiles is on my radar at the moment, it is perfect timing for me to share my thoughts on How to Create a Hamptons Style Bathroom.
It is hard to pinpoint exactly what creates a traditional Hamptons-style bathroom but there are definitely some common features. Hamptons bathrooms are classic, elegant and timeless. I love that they can also be adaptable. With the addition of coloured towels, and bathroom accessories a new look can be achieved.
Here are some common elements to creating a Hamptons style bathroom:
1. Subway Tiles
These are generally white or marble.
Marble or natural stone is used for tiling, countertops or both. Marble tiles can be applied in various shapes such as hexagonal, basketweave and herringbone.
A Hamptons-style vanity is usually custom-built with a shaker style profile on the doors and drawers. Cabinet knobs or pulls are more often chrome or nickel-plated.
4. Sconce Lighting
Sconce lights are usually mounted on either side of the mirror or on the mirror itself.
5. Wall Panelling
Walls, or sections of, can be panelled or sometimes wallpapered.
6. Neutral Colours
Hamptons-style bathrooms are a neutral colour such as white, grey or black and white.
Tapware is generally chrome or nickel-plated and traditional in style.
To create a Hamptons style bathroom, Perini has a huge selection. I have tried to narrow it down to my favourites while keeping the budget in mind too!
