The last step to becoming a master of asymmetrical design is to know how to apply these concepts in your own home. While there are no hard-and-fast rules for this one. we do have a couple of suggestions to get started.Make it a focal point: If you're going big with your asymmetrical element (like the fireplace above). make sure it's something that would be a natural focal point and build the rest of your design around it.
If you've looked at your available spaces and aren't quite satisfied. remember you can always bring in your own. Decorative ladders are great for displaying small décor items. as are entertainment centers and bookshelves. Don't be afraid to get a little creative with this one.Hanging art doesn't have to mean mounting it on the wall. Find alternative hanging methods
There's actually a psychological basis for why this occurs. It has to do with the way our brains process information. They aim to pick up on as many patterns and repetitions as possible. so the mirroring effect of symmetrical design makes those rooms very easy to figure out. In asymmetrical spaces. the patterns are less immediately obvious. so it takes our brains a bit longer to process them and ultimately makes them more interesting.
Every room in your home needs a focal point. Since concrete is such a heavy material to work with. when it's used in design. it lends a ton of visual weight to the room. This means it will instantly draw the eye and ground the space. All told. these factors make concrete an excellent choice to become a focal point in your home.
