The transitional style in the third most popular choice for dining rooms. It’s easy to see why it ranks so high. It bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary in a fresh and timeless way. It offers the comfort of the classic features while leaving room for new elements as fashion trends—or your tastes—change.
The look borrows the elegance of traditional with comfortable pieces. That gives it a cozy feel. It also brings the clean lines and simplicity of the contemporary style with minimal accents. The result is a gorgeous blend of style and versatility. Unlike other designs, the transitional dining room has looser rules which give it its evergreen quality.

The Transitional Look
It is as much about the setting as it is the atmosphere it creates. Despite its nod toward the traditional, there’s nothing fussy or pretentious about it. Its clean lines and quiet beauty bring a feeling of calm over a room. There are, however, a few key points to keep in mind when mirroring this style.
Colors such as beige, gray, and white are essential. These shades help maintain its relaxed mood. But that’s not to say that there’s no room for other hues. Accent pieces take on the role of being the brighter and bolder elements in the dining room. Glaring colors are out of place especially if you add too many.
The contemporary influences account for the focus on minimalism. That gives these rooms their feeling of openness. It makes them more welcoming without seeming austere. There’s no place for clutter with this style. Overly ornate features are equally out of character. Accents are kept to a minimum too. Its motto is less is more.
Furniture and fabrics add texture to the room. Natural materials like cotton, linen, and leather make a space inviting while adding interest. You’ll see these themes echoed in other design elements such as hardwood floors. Layers bring energy to an area to keep it from appearing dull. It’s evident in the transitional dining room design ideas.
The furniture follows these same guidelines of clean lines and neutral colors. Look for simple and updated designs of old favorites for your table and chairs. And warm-colored wood tones fit in best. You can add furnishings from other styles as long as they don’t detract from the mood of the room.
