Transitional style is where traditional design meets contemporary style. It combines the elements of timeless traditional style with more contemporary elements. Transitional rooms are equally feminine and masculine. They combine soft curved furnishings with straight lined, lacquered finishes. Don't confuse transitional with cluttered or eclectic. These spaces are minimally accessorized making every element in the room feel intentional.
Transitional style rugs combine traditional designs with modern colors or traditional colors and designs with more modern textures. Here are some tips for picking the perfect transitional rug for your space.
Transitional design is all about combining old and new. Take stock of your space. Do you have more traditional or modern elements? Then add some traditional style and vice versa. For example, in the dining room, if your table and chairs are modern, choose a more traditional style rug.
In the living room, if your style is more relaxed and casual, consider adding a more elegant or chic rug. A touch of elegance will elevate the entire space and add interest.
Be sure to measure your space before buying. You'll want the furnishings to fit easily on the rug (either the front two legs or the entire piece). And be sure to allow about 18"? of space between the wall and where the rug starts.
