The Principle of Balance

Balance, also known as formal balance, is the principle of design that brings visual equilibrium to a space. There are many ways to achieve balance in a space. The most widely used (especially in formal decor) and easiest way is to use symmetry. Symmetry is simply doing the same thing to both sides of a space or even just a fireplace mantle. You will know you have achieved symmetrical balance if you can visually draw a line down the center and both sides mirror each other. Enjoy your space, Rena
