Symmetry creates balance, and balance imbues harmony, order, and tranquility. The human brain is programmed to find symmetrical arrangements calming and aesthetically attractive.. So if you want to create a calming home environment, then add some balance to your room.

Begin by centring the room on a focal point. This focal point should immediately draw your eye upon walking into the room. In this room, our focal point is the octagonal window. We have placed a bonsai tree in the centre of the window, further highlighting the focal area and have then arranged our room symmetrically around this focal point.
