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.
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.
