What is Transitional Style?August 5, 2022 Patio Design
Many customers start the process of building an outdoor space without knowing their design style. There are many steps you can take to determine what you’re drawn to which will help us design your space, including checking out our blog on several of the different design styles. But, there is one style that we see our customers leaning towards the most often. It’s called transitional. Because it’s a blend of modern and traditional styles, it can make your space look classic while also feeling current.
Transitional Style Basics
This versatile style has wide appeal because it marries traditional and contemporary furniture, finishes, materials, and fabrics for a timeless look. The modern right angles and crisp lines are balanced with rounded traditional silhouettes and comfortable furniture so it’s neither too edgy or too stuffy.
Some key attributes of transitional style include:
- A neutral palette
- Patterns and texture
- Wood accents
- Concrete/solid colors (not tile)
- Modern lighting
- Clean roof lines and colors
- Comfortable seating
Your Backyard Getaway
Many fans of transitional style feel like it gives their home a “resort” feel, like they are getting away in their own home. However, this doesn’t mean it has an exotic look or a European style, just more clean and relaxing. Transitional often blends well with your current home but takes it up a notch, which our customers love and is one of our specialties. It’s a great way to update an out-of-date house and bring in serious style without looking like it doesn’t fit in with the rest of the home.
