When it comes to living in a well-decorated space, one of the most difficult techniques to maintain day to day is balance.

Traditional or formal spaces 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 symmetrically balanced. This kind of balance is easy to achieve as design elements are repeated on each side, but if you are not careful, this kind of balance can appear uninspired and mundane. Balance in interior design refers to the way items are arranged to reflect poise. We’ll show you home to maintain symmetrical balance in your home:
