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:
Take a second to think of all the mirror images you've seen in interior design. More than likely. the images you're thinking of are stately living rooms that feature double couches or a long dining table with two rows of identical chairs. This rigid duplication of symmetrical design has a tendency to present as more formal and even a little stuffy.
In fact. the bulk of your work takes place when you first purchase the item. Whatever application you choose for your concrete — whether it's a fireplace. countertop. or coffee table — it should be properly stained. sealed and polished.Be sure to ask the manufacturer how to maintain your specific items. As a general rule. simply sweeping away general debris and washing it with a non-abrasive cleaner is the way to go.
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.
