Remember wall decals? They aren't just for kids' rooms anymore. Today's wall decals — rebranded under the term removable wallpaper — are a great way to make a big design statement for relatively little effort and upfront cost. With a press-and-stick installation method. plus the ability to peel the design off and throw it away at the end of your lease. this method should be a go-to pick for any renter.
Though this list is by no means exhaustive. here's a quick rundown of some options:Use S-hooks and decorative rope to hang pictures from your molding.Enlist the help of wash-tape.Get some of those removable wall hooks.Opt for some Velcro.In this case. being satisfied with the method of installation and the final look of your pieces is key.
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.
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.
