What is a Hampton Style Home?

A loved American home, the Hampton style home has become a centrepiece in Victorian home designs. Due in large part to its coastal exteriors, and modern interiors the upmarket Hampton style has attracted buyers.


When it comes to the facade the coastal option will emphasise a typical Hampton inspired house. With products such as James Hardie’s Linea weatherboard owners can build the base palette of colours with different neutral colours such as soft pastels, blues, tan, and sand that have become famous over the years. This material is also favoured in Australia’s harsher climates rather than timber.

The interior typically limits the use of natural timber but instead opts for painted colours such as white or black, this is also important when trying to achieve a classic style joinery look.

Open Plan

In recent times, people are seeking more space within their homes and open plan living design provides just that. Through its design, the Hamptons Style Home offers open space, airflow and availability of natural light to provide a coast home feel.

Encouraging windows and doors to be open through the summer months, the home provides a great place to entertain family and friends. In thinking of its connection between indoor and outdoor, the Hampton style will typically open to the outdoor area, providing additional room and expanding the dining and living room outdoors.
