Creating Balance in Interior Design

England Furniture. England Furniture Tips. England Furniture Sectional.

Redecorating your space can be fun and refreshing–especially with Spring approaching. With so many ideas online, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by pieces that look like they go together, but don’t quite look right in your space. One trick interior designers turn to when laying out a space is a principle of design: balance.

Balance can help you determine where something “goes”. Whether you’ve purchased a new piece of furniture, or you’re just adding in a new lamp, balance can guide your design decisions.

There are three primary types of balance: symmetrical, asymmetrical and radial. Symmetrical balance refers to mirroring over a central axis, while asymmetrical has more to do with weight. Radial balance means a room is arranged around a central point to evoke centrifugal motion.

Pictured here is a great example of asymmetrical balance. You can see how the weight of the room is balanced out by a small side table and a tall, skinny lamp. The Malibu sectional’s chaise balances with the other side of the sofa.

Three Easy Ways to Welcome Springtime Indoors

Spring Decorating Tips by England Furniture. England Furniture Sectional.

Letting that warm springtime feeling inside after a cold winter is one of the best parts of the seasons changing. Welcome the sunshine indoors by refreshing your space. Spring cleaning is more than just dusting—think about starting the new season with a better living room furniture set!

1. Clean

Spring cleaning can become a fun family tradition. Get some music playing, assign tasks, and get the whole family in a cleaning competition!

2. Use Your Green Thumb

Add some plants into your space. Humans are naturally drawn to nature, and adding a vivacious green plant—real or fake—can help bring the budding branches indoors.

3. Furniture Update

Store away heavy blankets and transition into the light, airy feeling of spring. Swap out those dark, heavy curtains with light, sheer ones! If you are considering a new piece of furniture, you will want one that can easily transition through all seasons. The light gray upholstery on this England Furniture Monroe Sectional (pictured) can look chic in any season.

Adding a Pop of Color to Your Living Room

How to add a pop of color to your living room, living room with green accents

Adding a bright, happy color to the living room can create a positive atmosphere in your home. Breathing a bit of life into your home during these gray winter days is as simple as incorporating a pop of color into the living room. Here are a few ways to do this:

Pillows

Brightly colored pillows, like the ones on this Chandler Sectional by England Furniture, are simple details that can make a huge difference. Pillows can be an inexpensive update to a room, and if you’re handy, you can even reupholster pillows by hand.

Accent Furniture

Accent chairs and ottomans, like England Furniture’s Kinnett Chair or the small Hollie Storage Ottoman, can add an interesting dimension into a room by introducing a whole new vibe. To have an accent piece blend into a room, it’s important to integrate that color throughout other parts of the room so that it doesn’t stick out.

Art

Adding striking art to the walls helps to make the room look more complete. Whether you opt for larger scale paintings or smaller framed water colors, pieces of art can add a splash of color to a wall without having to paint. You can also add vases tucked in a corner or prominently displayed on an end table or coffee table.
