In home decor, we aim to build coherency, dialog, and harmony between the resources. That’s precisely why balancing decor is so important. The only way to create a nice, comfortable setting is by finding a perfect balance.

There’s nothing better than feeling comfortable in a setting. We don’t even realize how important that is. When the colors match together, the shapes have the right proportions and the layout is appropriate, they achieve harmony.

But when the decor resources in a setting don’t work well together, they create tension and conflict. Understanding decor and the relations between its elements is essential for creating a comfortable atmosphere.

Avoid accumulating resources

A common mistake we find in many homes is the accumulation of too many decor resources. These might include furniture pieces, wall decor, or even ceiling details. In any case, avoid overwhelming your spaces with too many things because they only create tension.

Instead, let your spaces breathe by only using items that can contribute to the setting functionally or aesthetically. Decorating every nook and cranny will achieve nothing. If you can maintain a sense of openness in your spaces in certain areas of your home, you can create a healthier atmosphere.

Try not to fill your rooms with too many furniture pieces because you probably won’t use most of them. Instead, arrange the most practical pieces in your rooms or use ones that can contribute to a certain decor style. These ideas will help make the most of your furniture in terms of decor.

Balancing decor means creating open spaces that can breathe.

Using colors for balancing decor

What happens when you mix the wrong colors in a room? You create an unsightly explosion of color. Your decor ends up being chaotic and confusing. In short, your decor is imbalanced. So how can you use colors correctly?

  • Have a clear decor style in mind.
  • Look for the colors that can work best and only use the ones that fit your decor style. If you want a certain color to serve as your base, make sure to use the others to create a balanced contrast.
  • How the colors work with each other is fundamental. You can only create balanced decor by creating a solid dialogue between all of your decor resources. Take the time to think about your decor. As a result, you’ll be able to enjoy a pleasant atmosphere.

 Proportions, the big pillar of decor

What would happen if your elements fail to match in proportion? It would unleash several decor problems. Any trace of disproportion leads to broken harmony.

  • Furniture pieces need to be proportional to each other. Avoid using pieces that are bigger than the others. If you do, it’ll create an isolated effect and throw the entire decor off balance.
  • Scale is fundamental. Make sure you look for normal measurements for your furniture pieces. While some furniture pieces are bigger, you should only use them in larger rooms.
  • If your elements aren’t proportional to one another and break the balance of the room, they’ll also create layout problems. They’ll fit poorly into their space and be an eyesore.
