Ever rearranged a room and thought, “Why didn’t I do that before, it feels perfect now?” That’s the core idea behind balance – a vital design principle that makes a space inviting and harmonious in exclusive homes.
Architects and designers spend years honing their balance techniques so that items within a room mesh instinctively with your movement and the whole home, inside and out, is a pleasure to live in. But did you know that there are three methods to balancing a home? Azure Luxury Homes, Perth’s choice team of luxury home builders, explains.
Which style of balance is for you?
– objects within the room mirror each other around a central axis. Imagine a lounge room with a coffee table at its centre and on either side, you see identical couches facing each other. Beside each couch is the same lamp. It’s an evenly balanced picture as you look down the centre of the room.
– here is where your brain naturally completes the scene. So in our lounge room scenario, furniture could be placed artfully across a room so that the objects balance each other when your eye takes it all in.
– there is one focal point where objects emanate from. So, start with our coffee table, place an eye catching lamp over it then place a few larger items close by to expand the story.
Balance in architectural design
Creating the perfectly balanced luxury home design couples clever interiors with a masterfully poised home plan. It allows fluid day-to-day living in an exclusive home environment.
Symmetrical architecture could mean a front door flanked by columns of equal width and rooms of equal measure on either side. Assymetrical architecture when done well can be thought-provoking, impactful and still very balanced in its beauty. Azure Luxury Homes achieves this by offsetting elements with space, adding focus with colour and sticking with a structured alignment.
If it sounds technical, it is but not for Azure’s crack team of designers. By implementing the perfect application of symmetrical, asymmetrical and radial balance, all of our luxury home designs result in outstanding finishes.
