Most people love the clean and sleek lines of contemporary homes, while others love traditional homes’ classic designs and rusticity. But what happens when you love both?
The good news is you can have both with a transitional style.
What’s a transitional style home?
A transitional style is a beautiful blend of modern and traditional designs.
Think of it as having the freedom to choose your favorite takeaways from both traditional and modern and infusing them to form a cohesively beautiful look that is comfortable and classic but chic as well.
Here are some elements to consider adding during your home renovations for a transitional style:
- Color-wise, stay neutral while allowing the clean lines of your furniture to take center stage
- Add texture with wood tones, rattan, lacquer, metal, steel, glass, and fabric
- Be mindful with the use of accessories, do not overdo. At the same time, don’t leave them out completely
- Choose an art piece that makes sense; it’s better to have one large piece than several small pieces.
How to make a transitional style work
Here are some ideas to go with:
You can choose an upholstered traditional headboard with an added modern touch by adding sleek metal lamps or modern side tables.
If your kitchen cabinetry gives a more traditional vibe, you don’t have to switch them up, instead use gold or silver for the handles and faucets for a modern touch. You can also add contemporary lighting as one of the exciting ways to bring a modern touch.
- Living room
If your home’s architecture has more standard features such as trims and moldings, then go for clean-lined sofas and chairs with neutral color fabrics, then you can add a subtle splash of bold-colored throw pillows.
Consider adding ceramic, wood, glass, and metal features for a contemporary touch. And for a traditional vibe, add a clawfoot tub and the flooring to be modern tiles arranged in some form of conventional design, such as a chevron pattern.
- Dining area
Keep it modern with comfortable dining chairs and a thick wooden dining table.
Go for a large contemporary chandelier, and choose some traditional furnishings to offset the modernity in the room. Crown molding and wood wainscoting are excellent ways to bring a classic touch to a rather contemporary space.
