Decorating ABC’s… Balance

Balance is basically the equal distribution of visual weight of a room or display. Balance can be achieved in different ways:

Symmetrical Balance: Symmetrical balance can be achieved when like objects are placed on either side of a space or object. (ex. A pair of matching candlesticks on either end of a console or mantel). Symmetry can feel a bit more formal or traditional.





Asymmetrical Balance: Asymmertrical balance is achieved when different objects with similar visual weight are used to create balance. This look is typically more relaxed, casual and unexpected.




Whether you prefer symmetrical or asymmetrical designs, just keep balance in mind and you’ll be well on your way to creating a room that is comfortable, inviting and looks great too!
