Traditional Style scales back modern elements in the pursuit of carved molding, woodworking and sturdy furniture. One of the most common characteristics of this style is the big sofa in the center of the living room, or the large wood dining room table with coordinating chairs. You’ll also find framed wall décor and well-dressed windows. Traditional style is all about the details, the accessories and the ornamentation that give a space that warm, homey and relaxed feel. Still, it’s not cluttered. Everything has a place in a Traditional Style home. In fact, the style derives its elegance from order.
If you’re moved by early American or old-world beauty, you probably prefer a Traditional Style home. Formal living rooms and dining rooms are a must, and are meant for entertaining or family dinners. Understated, but elegant defines the look of a traditional home.
