Transitional Style and How to Use it in Your Home

We all love scrolling through Pinterest to see the newest trends before starting any project. However, when you invest in something as large as a home renovation, it is important to make sure that you design something you fall in love with for a long time. When it comes to home renovations, some may like the traditional look while some prefer modern. But what happens if you like both? Transitional style is the perfect blend of classic looks with modern colors and design.

It’s often called “a new twist on an old classic,” because that’s essentially what it is. Transitional design is a beautiful blend of traditional and contemporary, elevating cozy warmth and welcoming stark chill. If that sounds like what you had in mind for your next home renovation, here are a few tips on the transitional style and how to use it in your home.

Basics of Transitional Style

Nice Neutrals – The muted palate of neutrals let your furniture become the focus of the room. Warm wood tones provide a welcoming, homey element that makes this space feel even more relaxing. Contemporary neutrals are the heart of the transitional style and are easiest to incorporate in your wall paint. However, this can also be used in ways like curtains, carpets, or accent pieces.

Modern Classics – The easiest way to understand the transitional style is to mix contemporary colors with traditional furniture, or vice versa. You want your rooms to be comfy, so don’t hold back on a plush couch or comfy chairs. Instead, use styling through lighting, décor, and accents to bring out the classy design you had in mind without giving up the comfort of a livable space.

Texture and Pattern – Textures are a great way to add visual interest to your space, and they’re especially crucial in transitional style. With its emphasis on clean lines and neutral tones, texture is a great way to bring a pop to your décor. Patterns are also a great way to get the same effect. This can also allow you to bring more colors to your palette as you redecorate. Transitional thrives best with patterns and colors that suit each other, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try new things and discover your own style within it!

Let The Light In! – Lots of light is a must for making your transitional concepts pop. Finishes like metal and glass can adda more contemporary feel to your mix if your furniture is more traditional. On the other hand, gold, light wood, or clean brass can help input more of a traditional feel. Overhead lighting or traditional lamps can be a great way to sneak in the opposing style you may need more of.

Incorporate Transitional Style into Your Home Renovation

You can’t beat the classics, but with contemporary in such a boom, it’s nice to have the best of both worlds with the transitional style. This concept can be used in any room in your home – from your bedroom or kitchens to bathrooms! Whether it’s adding bright natural lighting to your kitchen or adding Herringbone textured walls to your bathroom, transitional style is a creative way to make your home more modern while still appreciating the classic furniture and brass accents of traditional home décor.

Classic and contemporary aren’t your only options. Transitional design is a combination of both classic and modern that blends form and function. With careful planning and a few key pieces, your home is can make the transition to transitional style with ease during your next home renovation of any room!
