Transitional rugs provide one of the best ways to create a huge impact in any home, using minimal effort. Whether to add colour, brighten up, accentuate, or breathe new life into a space, they will help you do amazing home makeovers without having to undergo the nitty-gritty work of renovating, repainting, or refinishing your home....
What Are They?
Transitional rugs are typically considered "somewhere in between", "the best of both worlds" a "fusion of styles" or a "mixture of influences". We’d define them simply as rugs that combine modern and traditional styles in a unique way. They are a more subdued adaptation of the classic and traditional – perfectly infused with a bit of modernity to create a perfect interior decor that exudes timelessness. They are balanced with beauty and elegance, with just the right touch of casual comfort.
Transitional rugs take inspiration from a traditional rug while giving it a modern twist. Typically, it makes use of traditional and classic motifs such as flowers, leaves, geometric forms, stripes, sceneries from the countryside, which are often seen on fine hand-crafted oriental rugs. However, the main difference between the design of traditional and transitional rugs is that these repetitive patterns are usually toned down and creatively rearranged to produce a more casual style.
The Stylish Choice
The structure of the design is more informal rather than strict, which is either achieved by an off-centre motif, an uneven repetition of pattern or through the introduction of an entirely irrelevant design element.
When it comes to colour, transitional rugs adopt a more subdued and mellow palette which is mostly composed of neutrals commonly found with our silver transitional rugs, grey transitional rugs, and beige transitional rugs.
When you look at a transitional style rug, you can still see the presence of its traditional influences throughout, combined with a more refreshing revamp. It is also entirely different from modern rugs which usually contain bold shapes, loud patterns, and vibrant colours.
Overall, transitional rugs are more subtle and soft looking - a perfect combination of old and new which can fit in any interior style and setup.
Transitional rugs are the only rugs that combine traditional and modern influences, which means they can work their way into any theme, motif, period or interior style - whether it may be classic, rustic farmhouse, Scandinavian, hampton’s, luxe, vintage, contemporary, mid-century modern and many more.
Transitional rugs are also prized for their versatility. Although transitional style rugs are more commonly used in modern settings, you will be surprised at how well they work with a variety of spaces. More and more homeowners and drawn to their unique ability to blend into any type of space. The design possibilities it offers are endless since it is not bound to one specific design style alone, but instead, it bridges the gap between traditional and modern home decor.
Transitional rugs can help you achieve several aesthetic attributes for your space, whether it may be to create balance, blend, contrast, accentuate a feature or create a focal point. Transitional rugs can also help set the tone and mood for your home. For example, if you want to create a warmer and inviting atmosphere, opt for a rug with earth colours, if you intend on crafting a more relaxing ambience and laid-back feel choose one with subtle prints and a refreshing scheme. They also help bring balance to an interior setting, as it projects elegance and sophistication, while also delivering comfort and cosiness.
