Hamptons Outdoors

We all know that the elements and environment can be quite harsh in Australia, so your Hamptons home will need some sturdy cladding protection.

The Linea Weatherboards horizontal timbers are perfect for the traditional Hamptons style, while the HardieGroove Lining with vertical joint sheet panels is a great design for the contemporary look.

The Linea Weatherboard is insusceptible to splitting or contracting from rough weather. You needn’t upkeep the timber either. It works flawlessly for the Australian outdoors.

Consider garnishing your outdoor rooms with wide oak floorboards in stained dark oak or American mocha shade. 

Maintenance of a timber floor can be agonising, however HardieDeck’s fibre-cement solution is resistant, weatherproof and doesn’t crumble underneath your feet. 

To make sure it carries on being Hamptons, paint it neutral shades and finish it off with some Australian plants that bring the style to life. 


A favoured option for driveways and entryways is limestone as it fits well with the light blue of the Hamptons and naturality.

Adding an outdoor kitchen to your home not only is handy when having friends over for lunch, but it can also enhance the Hamptons style in your backyard. It joins the outside with nature, bringing you closer to the outdoor environment. 


The Linea Weatherboard suits this occasion as well because of its temperature resistance. 

Another smart incorporation to your home is a pool house to spend more time outside. 

Remember that when painting, white is a good base colour but using oceanic colours to emanate the coastal qualities of the Hamptons style.
