14 Traditional-Style Home Decor Ideas That are Still Cool
When it comes to decor, traditional is comfortable and often predictable. Some may say traditional is outdated, but there's a reason the style is still so popular—it just works. If you like rooms that are warm and welcoming and where everything has its place, here are 14 traditional-style home decor ideas that are still cool.
Add a Rug
Oriental and Kilim rugs are as popular as ever because they offer some style while also blending into their surroundings. When determining the size of a rug, make sure you can get at least the front legs of the furniture on the rug.
Hang a Chandelier
Chandeliers are a mainstay in traditional dining rooms and can make a home’s entryway more welcoming. If you have a smaller space, many chandeliers now come in smaller sizes and can help make the room appear larger.
The key when it comes to choosing window treatments is to avoid having them match your furniture fabric. Try some light curtains, roman shades or hang some bamboo blinds. Avoid any heavy curtains, along with tiebacks and thick valances because they make a room look dated.
Hardwood flooring in rich maple, cherry or mahogany is still a staple of traditional decor. Install some new hardwood flooring or refinish old floors.
