Post experts today advise against balancing furniture too perfectly because " balancing" can
make a room look stiff and monotonous. On the other hand, you should achieve some balance or your room will look confused and unpleasant.
How do you go about achieving the " balance" in your rooms? The first thing to watch for is that you don'put all the heavy pieces at one end of a room. That makes a room seem to tilt and it' uncomfortable to look at.
Also avoid putting all tall pieces together – be sure that height is properly arranged.
When an expert balances the furnishings in a room, he considers both the horizontal and the vertical lines of all the pieces of furniture as well as the windows and doors.
First there is symmetrical balance – for example, two of the same chairs on either side of a fireplace are a bit more formal; non-symmetrical balance is more casual. Or, you can use several different types of balance in the same room to achieve a more interesting look.
The main thing is to make the shapes in a room agreeable to the eye. Our staff is more than happy to show you how to achieve a balanced room as well as offer suggestions and recommend the appropriate furniture. Stop in to see us.
