Symmetry, asymmetry, rhythm, static and other techniques that will help you achieve the perfect setting.


One of the easiest composition techniques to implement is symmetry. It will help out in many situations:


Roughly and obviously breaking the symmetry, you will get another expressive technique – an asymmetrical arrangement of furniture or decor. What can it be used for:


Using repeating elements of the interior in the interior, you can create a rhythmic composition that will be a very effective solution for rooms of any size. When is this especially true:


Creating a static interior is not so difficult if you rely on a number of key points.

  1. Focus on pronounced vertical and horizontal lines.
  2. Choose more “heavy” furniture – on low strong legs.
  3. Introduce elements of symmetry.
  4. Focus on solid natural materials (wood, stone, metal).

What will give the reception of pronounced statics in the interior


The opposite of statics is dynamics. Perhaps, using this compositional technique is somewhat more difficult than others, but with our tips you will definitely cope.

  1. Leave enough free space in the room.
  2. Divide the room into asymmetrically located functional areas.
  3. Introduce lines and stripes into the design: vertical, diagonal (the choice of wall decoration, diagonal flooring, appropriate textiles and decor will help).
  4. Take advantage of asymmetry.
  5. Introduce elements of rhythmic composition.
  6. Add geometry to the interior.
  7. Place contrasting color accents.

Why create a dynamic composition:

Dominant element

Another easy-to-implement, but rather effective compositional technique is the choice of a dominant. Make an object or group of objects stand out noticeably from the rest – and there it is, your composition center.

Why use dynamic composition:

Rule of three

A simple way out for those who want to correct the existing arrangement, stylishly arrange compositions on open racks and shelves, dilute the excessive pretentiousness of the symmetrical arrangement of furnishings is the placement of objects in groups of three.

The secret is simple: in most cases, our gaze perceives the composition of three objects as sufficient and complete.
