Well-designed spaces have the ability to inspire harmony and happiness. There is psychological reason behind it. Interior design and symmetry in particular, can influence your subconscious. Although the eyes perceive the information in separate bits, the brain converts it into a singular and simpler pattern. This means that we see the room as whole, before we focus on the individual design elements. Physical clutter and chaos create noise, making it difficult to focus and process information.
With a quick home cleaning you will be able to resolve these issues, but what about your home interior? An awkwardly designed space can overload your senses and can even you stressed.
On the other hand, symmetry simplifies the design and is easy on the eyes. It gives your interior a coherent and aesthetically pleasing look. Concepts such as symmetry and balance may seem vague and hard to put in practice. That’s way we’ve put down the basics for you.
Aesthetic and Function
Start by picking an item or a detail that immediately draws the eye. Then use the focal point as a centre of your symmetrical room. It can be anything from a table or fireplace to an art piece. Divide the space in two halves and create two matching sides with your focal point in the middle. You can use this technique not only for your furniture set up, but also for the display of artwork or other items in your home.
If you feel confident in your design skills you can mix more than pattern for a more eclectic interior. Keeping it simple, though, is always a safe bet. Plus, it will facilitate the house cleaning and maintenance.
Remember, a balanced place does not only look stylish and pretty, but it also contributes to your well-being.
