Transitional design is a great option for a homeowner who wants to build a room around comfort and a few well-loved, carefully chosen items. By not limiting yourself to contemporary or traditional design, you have a chance to infuse the room with your personality, without ending up with a hodge-podge look.

Jamie Gibbs, a designer with offices in New York and Indianapolis and a member of the American Society of Interior Designers, has worked with many clients who want a transitional style, even if they don’t quite know what it is.

“Transitional is conservative and safe with an edge,” Jamie says. “You can have a little bit of an imagination with it.”

By thinking about how you plan to use the space and what you would truly love to see in the space, you can create a beautiful, inspired transitional room.

Here are Jamie’s tips on achieving a transitional look:

Plot out a room. Ask yourself: Where do I prefer to read? Where do I like to prop my feet up? Consider all these elements, so your room will be livable as well as beautiful.

Choose a neutral wall color. “Create a calm background,” Jamie says. “Neutrals bring out what you really want to showcase.”

Go comfortable with upholstered pieces. You can use a fun, functional fabric or leather to re-upholster a high-quality couch picked up at a thrift store or consignment sale.

Go contemporary with tables: Look for metal, mirrors, glass, and other contemporary details.

Every element should have a function and be nice. If it doesn’t have a function, give it up. And if it’s tired, worn, or outdated, let it go.

Go for pop: Make sure you have something eye-catching, such as a unique wall hanging or unusual piece of furniture. But you don’t need several wow pieces competing for attention.

Layer a colorful area rug on a neutral floor. An oriental rug is an unexpected choice, giving you a color palate as well as a wow factor.

Invest in good lighting. Most rooms need three different lighting sources to give you the flexibility you need for the room’s many roles.

Go for a done, not unfinished, look. A transitional room should look put-together and finished, with attention to detail, function, and beauty.
Don’t fill in your décor with cheap, random things: No cheap frames, cheap matting, cheap lamps or cheap accessories. Bare walls are better than walls cluttered with bad art or poorly framed photos.

Benefits of Carpet

Carpet has so many things going for it. It’s soft, safe, warm and quiet. It’s stain-resistant and gives excellent value for the price—and it saves energy. Carpet is also proven to trap allergens and dander (which can easily be removed with the right vacuum used regularly). So for beautiful comfort underfoot, consider carpet.

You’re about to enter into an exciting, creative and yes, somewhat stressful phase: you’ve finally decided to take the plunge and proceed with your home renovation! In the coming months, you will be faced with countless design decisions that, while they may seem overwhelming at the time, will ultimately give you the home of your dreams.

One of the biggest and earliest decisions you will have to make regarding your home renovation is choosing the proper flooring. And it should come as a surprise to no one that hardwood floors and carpeting are hands down the most popular choices for floor surface coverings. But many homeowners in the midst of a renovation struggle with which floor type works best for their home and its unique needs.

Here is a simple way to get started in deciphering on which type of floor covering is perfect for your home:

Hardwood Floor
Let’s face it—hardwood floor certainly has a reputation for being the most desired floor covering surface. And why not—it is timeless and gives you limitless versatility from a design perspective.

But hardwood floor is more than just a pretty face! Not only do you get the prestige of having a high end surface covering for your home, it is also incredibly easy to clean and maintain! With a hardwood floor, it is also the flooring option for your home that has a lengthy life.

Is being “green” a top priority for you? Then hardwood floor is the way to go! Many types of hardwoods are composed of natural materials, and it is easy to find a flooring manufacturer whose products are environmentally friendly.

Carpeting
If you like the words soft, comfortable, and warm, and want them to be incorporated into your home’s remodel, then carpeting is the flooring choice for you! It also may be the friendlier choice for your wallet as well—carpet is considerably less expensive than most hardwood materials on the market today.

Not only is carpeting soft and inviting for your home, it is also the preferred flooring choice when safety and quiet are essential to a homeowner. Accident damage is less likely when carpeting is covering the floor instead of hardwood (if you have active children running around the house, for example!), and of course, carpeting absorbs sound beautifully, making your home a peaceful and silent retreat.

First … you might not know that all tufted carpet begins with a loop pile. If cut pile or cut-and-loop pile is desired, loops are cut during manufacturing.

  • In loop styles, loops are left uncut.
  • In cut pile styles, all loops are cut.
  • In cut-and-loop styles, some loops are cut. Pattern and texture are provided by the contrast between the uncut and cut loops—sometimes uncut loops are dominant; sometimes cut loops are.
  • In twist styles, loops are cut and yarns are tightly twisted.

Now … on to the advantages of loop and twist carpet styles. (Again, we’re talking about tufted, not woven, carpet.)
