Not too old, not too new. Not too ornate, not too restrained. The middle ground doesn’t have to be boring — quite the opposite. By elevating nearly any look, these styles show that flexibility isn’t just functional; it’s beautiful.

 

Transitional style is adaptable yet ever-evolving, borrowing trends and fashions from design movements throughout history. This design style stems from a movement focused on blending design styles and eras, a concept that became popular in American homes around the mid-1940s and has carried through to present day.

 

Here are the perfect door hardware pairings you should consider for your transitional home.
