A living room done in an asymmetrical style might feature a sofa with an end table on one end and a floor lamp on the other.Radial balance: Radial balance is the most infrequently used option on this list. but it involves similar objects being placed around a common center point. It's most often seen in dining table arrangements where the same chair is used throughout.
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.
