When it comes to classic house designs, one of the most popular, especially in Melbourne, is the Hamptons home. With high ceilings, a neutral colour palette and white-framed windows, it’s an iconic style that has stood the test of time. But, achieving Hampton Style Homes in Melbourne can be a challenge, especially when you’re on a budget.
At No1 Property Guide, we’ve helped thousands of renters escape the rental nightmare to get into their own home. And while a traditional Hamptons style home might be out of your budget, there are ways you can achieve that classic look without needing to fork out hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The first, and easiest step to building towards your Hamptons home is the colour palette. The traditional colour scheme of a Hamptons home is light and bright. Warm whites will be your main colour choice with a mixture of softer blues, greens, and greys throughout your home. You can also mix in some off-whites to help round out the entire design.
When you build through No1 Property Guide, we give you complete control of your colour scheme during the planning stage. So, if you want that Hamptons style home, but don’t have the borrowing capacity to build one new, consider choosing a colour scheme to give you that Hamptons feel. Without the huge outlay.
Another common feature of a Hamptons style home is stunning timber flooring. Dark oak or polished pine will give a timeless appeal to any room in your house. Of course, if timber flooring is out of your budget, there are some ways you can get the look without the huge cost.
Laminate is available in a range of classic timber styles and will give your home a great timber flooring look. Speak to our New Home Specialists during your planning stage to organise altering your flooring or having laminate installed.
When it comes to the functional areas of your home, an easy way to get that Hamptons feel without losing utility is with the cabinetry. For a classic look, you’ll want some shaker-style cabinetry. Essentially just recessed doors and panels that give off a ‘framed’ look. These cabinets are a quintessential Hamptons look and will complete the look of any kitchen or bathroom.
Whether you pay extra to get them installed during construction, or you’re renovating your existing home, the right cabinetry can add a bit of the Hamptons to your home.
