Like any show of artistry, a key fundamental of interior design is keeping a room in balance. Scale, proportion, and rhythm all play into the visual appearance of a room. Follow these simple Do’s & Don’ts for a well-balanced room!

 Create Informal Asymmetry

Don’t – just duplicate what already exists on one side of the room.

Do – create this asymmetry by distributing the visual weight of the pieces. Balance a large sofa with an accent chair and bookcase.

Spread Color Around

Houzz

Don’t – limit the main color to the sofa only.

Do – make sure to spread the focal color throughout the space. Tie it in with different scaled patterns on chairs, pillows, rugs, and art.

Remember Visual Balance

Houzz

Don’t – let your room flat-line!

Do – add height to your space with lighting, greenery, and accessories. The varying heights make sure to address the vertical balance that is so often forgotten.
