How to Create a Transitional Custom Home Design

September 14, 2021

Clean and timeless are two words that best describe a home styling design that’s gaining traction with each passing year. More and more, transitional style homes are popping up around the country. Transitional style seamlessly blends traditional and modern elements to create a relaxing and eye catching home design experience. In a way—you truly can have it all. Read on and see if incorporating transitional styling into your Weston Dean Custom Home is right for you.

A Balanced Approach 

At times, trying to explain the transitional style can be a daunting task in itself. It’s about clean lines and edges but remembering to combine them with curved pieces. It has a light and comforting feeling, but it’s also polished and refined. It incorporates texture when needed, but it’s never disorderly. 

Transitional style is also heavily influenced by minimalism. Every piece of art and furniture is chosen for a particular reason and the overall feel of the home is never crowded. Although it may seem easy to simply add in a few traditional home pieces to a more modern home to create a contrast, the transitional style dives deeper into the idea. Both traditional and modern elements should be prevalent throughout the space, and one style should never overpower the other. Although it may seem complicated at times, the easiest way to start creating this style is with a neutral color palette and adding on from there. 

Tones and Textures

Although the overall feeling of the home is minimalistic, that does not mean that only neutral colors can be present in your home. In the transitional style, the main colors will mostly include varieties of tan, cream and grey. You could also incorporate more depth by adding in deep, rich browns to the main color palette. When adding in richer colors, such as deep blue or sea green, it’s best to make them accent pieces. These could be brought into the home through art pieces, accent pillows or interior window trim. The use of color in a transitional style home can aid in the act of instilling a calm, peaceful feeling throughout the entire home.

Adding in texture is another way to bring some excitement to your transitional styling. Some of the best ways to accomplish this is to add in rugs or throw blankets. If you’ve chosen a sand colored linen comforter, try adding in a velvet blanket to catch the light and add dimension to your bedroom. Different patterns can also be added through vases, lamps and art pieces throughout the home. Too many patterns can quickly get dizzying, so try to keep these additional concepts closely related to one another without being an exact copy. 

Keeping it Comfortable

Comfort also plays a main role in transitional styling. When it comes to seating, pairing cozy, large pieces of furniture with more sophisticated, formal chairs is one way to ensure that your home looks both chic and homey. In any home, the main goal is to choose comfort where it matters and buy the pieces you truly love—the rest will follow. 

Whatever style you choose for your Weston Dean home, the main goal is to create a space that brings you joy each time you enter it. Want to learn more about different ways to bring transitional styling into your home? Contact us today or call us at 210-408-9107.
