HomeThangs.com – the Home Improvement Super Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer. With that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.
The first step in any major bathroom remodel is deciding on a type of decor. Depending on the style of the rest of the home, the choice might be obvious. But if a home doesn’t fit neatly into a particular style, the age-old traditional vs. modern debate might be a little more complicated. If a traditional design would be too ornate, and a modern design too spare, it might be time to look to a design that falls somewhere in between. Transitional bathroom design strikes a compromise between the elegance of older styles and the sleek, simple lines of a more contemporary design. HomeThangs.com offers some tips and ideas on how to build this look with transitional bathroom vanities.
In their style guide HomeThangs.com is discussing different aspects of traditional bathroom design, and how it evolves. Many designers are paring down traditional vanities to better fit a contemporary decor. With less intricate detailing, more uniform coloration, and often more thoughtful storage, transitional bathroom vanities combine the elegance of traditional design with a simpler, more casual contemporary vibe.
Transitional bathroom vanities echo the formal, traditional design, but without so much detailed woodwork. Instead of column or floral style detailing on the corners, transitional vanities leave the lines clean, and bring out the traditional aspect with more subtle details, like decoratively paneled doors and bun-style feet. This alternative choice of woodwork plays up the sophistication and nostalgia of traditional design, but is much, much better suited to the wide, open, and clutter-free spaces that are more appealing to the contemporary eye.
Traditional design has always prized real wood of all colors and varieties, but that’s significantly less true of contemporary design. With homeowners making every effort to make their homes greener, one can now see a lot more furniture made of MDF, plywood, or sustainably grown hardwoods. Transitional bathroom vanities are often finished with a deep espresso brown, mirroring traditional mahogany but without the expense of exotic hardwoods. HomeThangs.com suggests material, color and finish ideas that would work great in a transitional bathroom. Storage smart bathroom vanities are also on the list.
Among the recommended bathroom vanity brands are: Wyndham Collection, Design Element, Avanity and many others.
