What is a transitional rug?
Transitional decorating combines both traditional and contemporary stylings into a harmonious blend of old and new.
A transitional rug is one that combines timeless patterns, styles and colours with fashion-forward designs and colours to create a modern rug that’s grounded in the old-world tradition.
A transitional rug will help tie together your home, creating a link between modern and traditional elements of your home decor.
How to style a transitional rug
The transitional design aesthetic combines both contemporary and traditional aspects to create a timeless, comfortable look and feel. A modern abstract patterned rug like the Aram Monet Contemporary Rug can be paired with traditional block colour or wooden furniture to create a harmonious finish. Meanwhile, a bold patterned rug like the Bali Brown Modern Medallion Rug can be styled over hardwood floors with luxe soft furnishings and antique artwork to form a beautiful transitional living space.
The real beauty of transitional rugs lies in their versatility. They can be used to update an old-fashioned living room or to tie together a modern, trendy space — the only limit is your imagination.

Choosing the right transitional rug for your space
Choosing a stunning rug for your home is an easy way to elevate your space and tie your decor theme together. Here are some tips for helping you select the right transitional rug for your home.
Bedroom transitional rugs
Add some warmth and style to your contemporary or traditionally styled bedroom with a transitional rug. A small transitional rug can be placed beside your bed to create a warm spot for your feet as you get out of bed in the morning or matching rugs placed on either side of a double bed to create a harmonious feel.
Adding a large transitional rug under the bed in a grand master bedroom will add effortless style and comfort to the room.
Living room transitional rugs
When selecting a transitional rug for your living room, it’s important to consider its placement — for example, will the rug be placed in between or underneath the furniture? If you intend to place the rug between pieces of furniture, a medium-sized rug will potentially work best — these rugs are also a great option for placing underneath coffee tables along with round rugs.
Alternatively, you can place a larger rug under a furniture grouping — this works particularly well in open-plan living spaces. If you place your transitional rug underneath a selection of furniture, make sure to leave an even border around the furniture to create a harmonious effect.
Dining room transitional rugs
When choosing a rug to place under your dining table, it’s important to choose one large enough to accommodate both the table itself and all the chairs when drawn out. The table and chairs should fit comfortably with a border of at least 10 cm around the drawn-out chairs.
Hallway transitional rugs
A transitional runner rug can liven up your hallway and create a natural flow between various rooms.
When selecting a hallway or runner rug for your home, it’s important to make sure the rug is a suitable width for your hallway. There should be around 10 cm of space between the rug’s edges and the hallway walls with the rug placed in the centre of the hallway.
