Transitional Bathroom Design

A transitional bathroom is a popular design trend that is a cross between modern and traditional. What are the key features of a transitional bathroom?

  • A combination of two styles: A transitional bathroom can have different meanings to different people. Usually, it is a mixture of a recent era with the current era. It boasts of clean lines, with a warm and comfortable design.

  • Easy to access: A transitional bathroom also refers to a design that gives homeowners safety and accessibility. Grab bars installed near the bathtub or shower are installed as much for style as they are for safety. Handheld shower sprays and bench seats are common additions as well as mirrors and other fixtures placed low for use from a seating position or a wheelchair.

  • Safe but stylish: A transitional bathroom is visually appealing and can make you feel safe and comfortable regardless of your physical ability or age. The grabs bars in a transitional bathroom are decorative and at the same time can prevent a fall. A built-in bench within a shower stall can serve as a seat if you are unable to stand due to injury or a foot prop for shaving your legs. Also, the handheld showers will come handy if you wish to bathe seated, wash your pet, or clean the shower.

  • Sleek design: The sheer beauty of a transitional bathroom is one reason it is so popular. They offer luxurious space where you can relax and unwind without the expense or inconvenience of leaving your home.

  • Storage and workspace: The vanity and cabinets in transitional bathrooms are distinctive. They are free-standing or built-in, with recessed panels and several drawers. The transitional bathroom incorporates painted wood with decorative hardware.

  • Countertops and sinks: In a transitional bathroom, the countertop, sinks, and faucet tend to be granite, marble, quartz, or quartzite. A transitional bathroom uses the newest faucet design trend like motion and touch-control. Popular finishes for transitional bathrooms include matte, polished, and satin.

  • Colors and flooring: Flooring options for transitional bathrooms might be stone tile, ceramic, porcelain, luxury vinyl, marble, or wood. On colors, transitional bathrooms have a light and soft feel: whites, grays, beiges, blues, and silvers are the most common color choices. 

If you looking to incorporate transitional style into your bathroom, contact your local interior designer for more ideas and cost estimates. If you’re looking to sell, ask your realtor if upgrading to a transitional bath is a potential selling point.
