Redecorating a room is an exciting way to freshen up your home, but also might seem like a daunting task if you don’t identify with just one conventional style category. Traditional design, for instance, is classic, inviting and elegant, while contemporary design includes more clean lines, modern accents and natural hues. But what if you like a little from each category? With the right tools and a proper balance, you can blur the lines between traditional, transitional and contemporary design to create a room that represents your own style.

More and more, the tendency to mix and match furniture, materials or colors from different design categories is becoming popular among homeowners looking to turn their space into an extension of themselves.

An easy place to begin is at the faucet, which serves as the focal point of the room and can be simply updated. And, if you’re torn between style categories, here’s a tip. In general, a warmer finish on a contemporary faucet is well-suited for someone who wants a modern design, but doesn’t want to sacrifice the cozy atmosphere of a room. Delta Faucet’s contemporary Trinsic collection, for example, delivers a big impact on the overall look of the space. But, for those who like the sleek, modern architecture, yet prefer a more traditional overall design scheme, selecting a less contemporary finish will balance out the look. A great option would be Champagne Bronze with soft, brushed gold hues.

Don’t sweat it if you’re confused by which design fits your style. There are a multitude of products available that can help you defy the lines between cut-anddry design categories and have fun creating your own customized look.
