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:
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
Take the picture above as an example. The fireplace has such a commanding presence that your eye is pulled to it. If you're willing to go this bold. an architectural element definitely fits the bill. It's also possible to go more subtle. A concrete island instantly becomes a conversation piece in your kitchen and a coffee table easily grounds a seating area.
Repeating elements with similar colors. lines and shapes are the way to go.Use your perception: Pay attention to how your asymmetrical elements make you feel. If something feels “off” about your design. you may have to make a few tweaks until everything makes sense.Will you be giving asymmetry a chance?Believe it or not. asymmetry is a foundational principle of interior design.
