In order to achieve a beautiful and memorable interior design, you need to define your style. As much as a designer knows you and your interests, they might still be asked to come up with an ideal, stylish solution for your space. Some of us will be pretty clear with our rustic or contemporary ideas, but the majority will still be stuck somewhere between different styles. How could designers deal with them?

The solution is the temporary interior design. The term is not really familiar to people outside of the design world, even though it covers the needs of most homeowners.

As you can imagine, the transition relates to moving objects from one place to another. In terms of design, the transition reflects the combination of two or more styles in a single room in a way that looks harmonious and coherent. Therefore, any design element could fall under the category of transitional design elements.

In addition, the transition design is growing in popularity, and the number of homeowners who would choose to merge different elements (e.g. antique furniture and clear objects) is increasing dramatically. This is why we should all keep this in mind when decorating our new home.

An overview of the transition design

In most cases, the transition style refers to a combination of modern and traditional furniture, fabrics, materials and finishes. When done correctly, the transition design results in a sleek environment that looks amazing while being comfortable. The process is pretty straightforward, especially if you opt for an Asian, mission, or shaker style establishment.

“Going Transitional” includes interesting combinations of straight furniture and lacquered surfaces with curved furniture. The end result is a space that looks equally feminine and masculine, but is not littered with accessories and textures. In fact, this design solution is cleaner than many of its simply designed counterparts.

Many people confuse the transition style with the eclectic, even if they have many differences. Transitional rooms mix antiques with modern furniture, but pay attention to the classic, simple appearance of their elements. Eclectic rooms, on the other hand, are not as sophisticated.

Does it sound like a style that might work for you? If the answer is yes, here’s how you can apply it:

Neutral pallets

The transition style is closely related to minimalism, which mainly relates to the colors used. Ideally, they shouldn’t cross neutral boundaries and vary from warm and creamy white to cozy brown, black or charcoal. Other colors can only be picked up by small accessories or in the role of modest accents.

Accessories like colors should be kept to a minimum. It can either be a beautiful potted flower in the window box or a series of favorite family photos framed in silver or wood. In fact, any silver element (e.g. candle holder) is a counterpoint to your simple furniture.

The transition style decor can relate to any element you already have. The main setup rule is to keep the lines strict and straight, and occasionally add a curved curve to “distort” the monotony. The idea is to make the rooms neither masculine nor ruffled, but to be comfortable for every taste and generation. The concept remains humble but refined especially because the colors are simple and the place feels warm and relaxing (beige, tan, ivory, etc.).

Combination of textures

One of the things that make the transition style so popular is the contemporary mix of textures. Feel free to combine silk, chenille, suede, leather, linen, and cotton with the rougher textures of wood, honed granite, or even a smooth serving of polished glass. Such combinations meet with great interest and make your place look unique and warm.

The transition design is popular with the white linen drum umbrellas. Usually they are attached as pendant lights, but they also look great as table lights. The other options available are modern replicas of traditional chandeliers or lamps with silver / chrome details.

Transition windows should be as simple as possible. All you need is gathered curtains or simple rods with neat ends. Another good idea is to go for Roman hues or woven blinds with homely textures. Whatever you choose, avoid frills and keep the place as simple as possible.

Transitional style in the service of inner cohesion

The hardest part of transitional interior design is creating cohesion. Not all ideas are “mixable” which means that you have to be careful with the nature of your elements and your space.

Transitional dining rooms: choose furniture with modern, straight lines; and traditional upholstery. Alternatively, you can take the traditional pieces you already have and combine them with modern light pendants or exposed light bulbs. We recommend classic solutions such as wood paneling for redesigning modern dining rooms.

Transitional bedroom: You can deal with the bedroom in a relatively simple way: take your traditional curved headboard and upholster it with modern fabric (e.g. steel colored fabric). Assuming you have enough space to renovate, bring a modern cube table that will stand out from your traditional headboards and metal lamps.

Transitional kitchens: Kitchens are the best area for interesting and unexpected experiments. For example, you could replace the traditional wooden panels with panel panels, especially when it comes to decorating your fridge. We also recommend that you combine components from different eras, e.g. B. Consoles, molded parts, brackets, etc .; or a contemporary wash basin for a unique kitchen.

Transitional bathrooms: Transitional bathrooms rely on modern shower poses such as open standing stands that are surrounded by glass. These shower stalls look great when paired with porcelain tubes or traditional wooden elements that add gravity and artisanal aesthetics to your bathroom. Once again you are cordially invited to “combine” influences from different eras (modern sinks and modern stone countertops together with vintage tubs) and to mix toilet designs with a visible contrast between the present and the past.

Transitional living room: The most important goal in designing a living room is to make it comfortable. It means that you should combine warm fabrics with simple furniture and remove any items that look cold or unbalanced.

In addition, the use of transitional design in your living room is related not only to the type of furniture you use, but also to its size. You need to adjust all of the elements to the available space and go to balance your seating area with the one accordingly. Remember, you can make your space look bigger with plush carpets, large works of art, or simple pillows and couch throws. The best part about these solutions is that they are fast and affordable – all you need is to be creative!

With proper traditional design, combining two completely opposing styles can result in a cohesive environment. However, if you are afraid of doing this yourself, ask for professional advice or hire qualified professionals to help you do it.

Think outside the box

The choice of transitional decoration is already an innovation, even if you want to recombine existing elements instead of buying new ones. It means that you have a different and futuristic place where you can adopt any new decoration you like.
