Put simply. asymmetry is a type of balance that's often used in design. Typically. when people consider balance as a concept. they stick to working with symmetry — or mirror images — in their interiors. While that's always a viable option. it's far from the only one to choose from.In reality. there are three distinct forms of balance you can incorporate as part of your design. They are as follows:
Symmetrical/formal balance: This type of balance is created by taking the room and splitting it into two halves that mirror each other. It could. for example. include a living room that features two sofas with a coffee table between them.Asymmetrical/informal balance: In this case. the room is balanced by the repetition of similar forms. lines and colors. but there is no mirroring or exact duplication.
In contrast. asymmetrical designs aren't constrained by the same level of perfection. The allowance for differences in their arrangement enables the space to feel a bit more casual. a bit more “lived-in.” As such. asymmetrical designs are often favored in high-traffic areas of the home. such as family rooms and eat-in kitchens.Follow these tips to bring asymmetry to your interiors.
