Explore options for transitional bathrooms, and prepare to create a bath space that combines traditional and contemporary design seamlessly.
By: Sean McEvoy
Transitional bathrooms tend to combine the best of both worlds, design-wise. They feature elements of contemporary or modern design, as well as more traditional approaches.
Bathrooms that feature transitional design often employ clean lines and a soothing, comfortable style without using excessive ornamentation or overly bold flourishes. In terms of color schemes, transitional bathrooms tend to stick to the classics. Tan, beige, white and light grey are common, as they can help pull together the contemporary and traditional styles of furniture or other fixtures and accessories.
Flooring and countertops are often marble or natural stone, for an understated but classic look. When it comes to furniture, midcentury modern cabinets can be a great option, especially when paired with more traditional features like a natural wood bench or classic pedestal sink.
Combining the clean lines and flowing shapes of contemporary and modern design with the more traditional elements of classic bathroom styles can create a visually unique and appealing bath space in your home.
