20 Beautiful Transitional Style Dining Room Ideas

Transitional décor is the art of combining two types of décor styles: contemporary and modern. It is a design that is not too formal, not too cold, and not too ornate or elaborate. It is a great look for those who want a formal look to their dining room, without being overstated or stuffy looking. Color tones are generally understated – soft and neutral, and uses a mixture of clean lines, with gentle curves and rounded contours. You can create this same, classy and sophisticated look for your dining room to make it a beautiful expression of two modes of décor themes, and here’s how.

Color scheme

The color palette for a transitional room are typically smooth and creamy. Creams, light browns, and muted blues, greens and grays, among others. Wood furniture pieces can be dark shades of wood, and are the preferred look for this type of décor as opposed to light oaks. The same color scheme for wood flooring choices also applies, using dark cherry wood, Mahogany, and other dark colored woods. Splashes of color should be limited. A colorful flower arrangement on your dining table or buffet will break up the understated tones in the room, or add accent colors in your dining chair cushions or draperies, are other options.

Mix and match furniture

One way to create a unique look is to mix and match pieces of furniture. Throw a couple of contemporary styled chairs into the room to mix with the modern pieces, or vice versa. At the dining table, use a combination of clean-lined dining chairs with thick rattan, straight-backed chairs to get a well-rounded mixture of both designs. A weathered wood table with a beautiful transitional style chandelier overhead, paired with a modern dining buffet gives the room an elemental feel.

For more inspiration, here are 20 beautiful transitional style dining room ideas to help you get ideas from. You will see a wide variety of ideas that, though all different, have many similarities in the use of, both furniture, and color combinations.
