Using Balance as a Decor Tool

Spaces usually call for symmetrical balance where the space is evenly split into two sides that mirror each other. For example, two chairs on either side of a coffee table can be said to be symmetrically balanced. This kind of balance is easy to achieve as design elements are repeated on each side. Care should be taken to avoid monotony.

Personally I prefer to spice things up with an unexpected twist such as a feature chair in a totally different fabric/colour or a colourful painting thrown in to upset the equilibrium and give the eye something to rest on.

In the image below, the four mirrors are are balance out to create a uniform look
 Also in the children's room below the name frames and mirrors also create balance.


In the image below, there are 2 lamps, one on each side of the bed
