Large Furnitures That Multitask

Because of their lack of many floor levels, bbungalow interior design can seem smaller and enclosed.

Sofas that hold twice as many people, large tables that function across tasks and longer horizontal furniture makes spaces appear larger and rooms bigger.

Greenery breaks any restrictions of such buildings and makes movement cohesive and continuous.

Kitchens With Character

In most bungalow interior design, kitchens are the soul of the home. The house layouts and designs have traditionally been built around large families gathering in a kitchen.

Continuing with the same thought, modern bungalow interior design need kitchens with strong character.

Exposed brick walls and chalkboard cupboards, separate spaces for baking and cooking, makeshift breakfast tables

and multi-functional kitchen cabinets all centred around the cooking area draw the family together.

The aesthetics that dining rooms lend to bungalow interior design can never be ignored.

Elaborate dining areas with large tables and chairs in heavy wood, subtle lighting and clever seating are great for such spaces given that conversations revolve around dining areas.

Unlike apartments that do well with lean furniture, elaborately designed furniture in such homes add character and beauty.

Vibrant Furnishing And Accessories

bungalow interior design thrive on vibrancy.

The juxtaposition of a period look and heavy furniture with bright upholstery and furnishings is interesting.

Bright pillows and rugs, textured carpets and unusual accessories in clay,

glass and wood or flea market finds when layered in specific spaces around the home make it warm and welcoming.

Crafting Lounging Spaces

With single cohesive spaces in bungalows, it is natural for the urge to move around because of the horizontal design.

This also makes it necessary to find spaces to sit around and dream, write or work beyond traditional working spaces.

A daybed or diwan in the guest room, furnished loveseats under windows, sofas and more afford plenty of lounging spaces around a home.

Lighting Matters

Lighting has always had such a profound effect on homes, particularly spaces like apartments.

This same can be applied to bungalow interior design, where different moods can be created for different rooms.

From a dark and quiet mood for home theatre rooms, to subtle lighting around hallways,

from bright incandescent light in the living room to calming chandeliers and floor lamps in bedrooms, lighting can transform bungalows and their interiors.

Period Upholstery And Furniture

Period furniture is often acquired from family or personally owned, but buying them will embellish your bungalow to reflect old world charm.

Large wooden beds with bedposts, wooden almirahs and storage boxes, ornate corner tables and seating lend a look to the home that is both familiar as well as classic that anyone can relate to.

Global Design Influences

bungalow interior design can showcase various kinds of influences.

These might be art forms, places, ideas and people.

Because they offer a horizontal canvas, these influences don’t clash but are spread around, adding nuance and stories, color and character throughout the home.

A touch of Moroccan wallpaper in the living room, some Arab-inspired lamps, wall hangings of Warli and walnut dressing tables from Italy come together beautifully in bungalows.

Stylies With Stunning Corridors

Corridors or connecting spaces are the least utilised and don’t offer much to explore, but in bungalows are ripe for imagination.

From console tables to chandeliers, elaborate floral arrangements to eclectic wall niches, there’s so much to explore and work around.

Corridors can be rife with life instead of becoming boring connected spaces.

Rustic Influences

Unlike apartments that offer less scope for design, a bungalow’s very architecture makes it easy to move between design influences.

Rustic organic designs in seating and furniture can be easily done in bungalows with bamboo, wood, grass and handwoven wicker materials.

This when merged with modern aesthetics allows more scope to experiment.

Rustic Influences

Large Windows And Doors

Open airy spaces designed into bungalows keeps rooms free flowing, open and not heavy and foreboding. Bungalows with their horizontal flat design do have pockets of darkness.

To dispel this necessitates having large windows and doors spread everywhere to let natural light and breeze in and allow the flow of movement.

Bungalows were omnipresent in previous cityscapes and have become rare with the construction of small homes and apartments.

Nevertheless they have a charm of their own. Adding contemporary touches lends them interest without taking away their inherent soul.

Does Symmetrical Balance In Interior Design Add Any Value? Let’s Figure Out

A guide to create the symmetrical balance in your home’s interior design. 

“The desire for symmetry, the balance, the rhythm, in form as well as in sound is one of the most inveterate of human instincts.”

-Edith Wharton

Your home’s interiors need to be visually appealing and striking.

That’s probably the first thing you think about when you’re getting started with a home interior design project.

And as a result you may end up buying a lot of furniture and decor elements under social media influence to make your home’s interiors more ‘Instagrammable’. Only to find that what you get is a lot different from what you visualised.

To get the perfect interior design scheme for your home, you need to understand the concept of symmetry.

Creating a symmetrical balance in the interior design of your home is the key to a perfectly designed home.

Such a home is not only pleasant to the eyes but becomes a positive space to live and work in.

So before we get into the details of symmetrical balance in interior design, let’s understand symmetry in the real sense of the term.

Symmetry is all about creating a visual balance and a rhythm within the present layout of your space to bring continuity without making the space look monotonous or boring.

You can bring symmetry to your home by creating a mirror image between the two halves of your room, creating separate spaces within one living area, or tactfully arranging your furniture and art pieces to balance the space.

But to create that balance without losing the functionality of your home’s interior design can be a challenge.

In this blog here we have listed valuable tips and design ideas to help you create striking interiors infused with symmetrical balance in every part of your home.

How To Bring Symmetry To Your Living Room’s Interior Design

Creating symmetry in the living room can be done by placing a statement decor piece like a mirror, wall art, or frame right in the centre.

This divides the room into two mirror images. However, this is possible only in a large living room.

For small living rooms, you can bring symmetry to the interiors with wall panelling, artefacts and a slight change in placement of furniture.

Here are a few tips and tricks to ace the symmetrical balance in your modern living room.

Symmetrical Furniture Placement

If you have a large space, and an eye on symmetrical aesthetics, opt for identical furniture and furnishings.

Identical daybeds on opposite sides and a decorous mirror between two wall paintings lend a luxurious touch to the design and decor.

You can add two side tables with lamps on top to take your symmetrical interior game a notch higher.

A Cosy Conversational Area

Create a cosy and symmetric conversational area with two identical chairs or couches facing each other.

You can add a contrasting sofa in the middle to break the monotony.

Place a side cabinet for extra storage but balance it out with potted plants on the other side.

Symmetrical Wall Panelling

Wallpanelling adds definition to your home’s interior design scheme and accentuates the aesthetics.

A similar wall panelling for the entire dining and living area helps maintain harmony and symmetric balance in your space.

Add to this a low-lying cabinet with handle-less shutters and wall-mounted TV unit to improve the functionality of the space.

It will also create good symmetrical balance and blend in with the design elements of the space.

Mirrors Can Lend Symmetry Even In Small Rooms

Mirrors not just add to the symmetry of spaces but make it look bigger as well.

Three same sized mirrors on the wall plats at an equal distance from each other is all you need to bring harmony even in a small asymmetrical living room.

If you have a door on one side of your living room, like the one in this image here,

a book cabinet with concealed storage is perfect to utilise the dead corner on the other side while balancing the interiors.

A Perfectly Symmetrical Gallery Wall

You can bring symmetry to your living room with art too! Place two identical sized frames and opt for brick cladding on the accent wall to make your accent wall bring attention to the artefacts and the vibrant sofa set.


The wooden coffee table and side cabinet with open shelves stitch the look together and make your living room functional, lending a warm vibe alongside.

Enjoy The Beauty Of Symmetrical Interior Design In Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is the most incredible space in your home. It is the space where you enjoy a good night’s sleep after a long day of work or laze around on grumpy weekends.

While it is easier to bring symmetry to the living room because of the seating arrangement and entertainment unit, here are  easy tips for a symmetrical bedroom interior design.

The Placement Of Your Wardrobe Is Crucial

Your wardrobe is the most essential yet heavy piece of furniture in your bedroom after your bed.

So to bring in the symmetrical balance in your bedroom’s interiors, try placing your modular wardrobe opposite the window. This will help make the space look

If you want to add a dressing unit or a study nook that might come in the way of your symmetrical bedroom, the trick is to maintain continuity.

Let the finishes of your furniture pieces be similar to maintain the continuity of your home’s interiors.

Here we have used wood finished laminates for the dresser unit and the bedside cabinet to blend in harmoniously.

Symmetrical Headboard

Your headboard is the focal point of your bedroom.

So opt for an extended headboard with tinted glass panelling on both sides. Glass reflects light beautifully and makes your room look bright and well illuminated.

Place two identical side lamps on each side of your bed to accentuate the symmetrical balance in your bedroom’s interior design plan.

Create A Sense Of Harmony In Your Kid’s Bedroom

Symmetric balance has a positive impact on the human mind, especially on the tender mind of your kids. It helps bring a sense of balance and harmony and makes the room look tidy. Here are a few tips to infuse symmetrical balance while making your kid’s bedroom look fun and vibrant.

A Wall For Study And Play Time

Divide the wall of your kid’s bedroom equally for studies and fun activities.

In this image, the study nook has a pegasus wall with hanging shelves while the other half has a climbing wall to enjoy indoor physical activity.

This design aids the physical and mental development of your child.

Colours And Theme Play A Vital Role In Creating Symmetry

As already mentioned, symmetry in home interiors is all about maintaining the rhythm and creating a balance. Thematic interiors are a great way of bringing symmetrical balance in interiors.

To justify the jungle theme we have used forest green colour for half of the wall but have balanced it out with white. Both these colours create a striking contrast and complement each other well.

You can use a diagonal paint design to take your symmetrical interior concept a notch higher.

The wooden laminated headboard and study cabinet complement the jungle theme beautifully, while the floating shelves and bed with storage add functionality to the space.

Wall Panelling And Choice of Furniture

The symmetry in this kids bedroom is created through the bunker bed on one side and a study desk for two on the other. Bunker beds save a lot of space and bring in symmetry because of the design.

The wall panelling on the accent wall adds definition to the design, while the chalkboard wall provides space to showcase your kid’s creativity.

We have added an ergonomic study desk for two and identical bucket chairs to add to the symmetric balance while giving your kids enough space to study comfortably.

Handle Less Drawers And Cabinets For A Clean Look

Handle less drawers and push-to-open cabinets lend a clean look and aid with symmetrical balance in your kitchen’s interior design.

Modern Storage Units For A Clutter-free Look

A cluttered kitchen is the last thing you want in your home. It not just hinders your work but makes your kitchen look messy and unwelcoming.

Modular kitchen storage units like tall units, pull-out pantry, oil pull-out, overhead cabinets with lift-up shutters, and magic corners provide ample storage space to house your crockery, supplies, jars, and bottles.

This helps keep your workstation free and helps bring in symmetrical balance in your kitchen too.

Harmony In Finishes To Maintain Continuity

Symmetry in the kitchen can also be infused through continuity. This kitchen is designed with wood finish laminates throughout the overhead and base kitchen units to maintain continuity and aesthetic balance.

You can make the island counter the focal point of your kitchen’s interior design.

Place two to three chairs on either side to add to the symmetry of the kitchen and turn it into a cosy dining cum cooking area as well.

Brick Cladding Walls For Symmetry

Curate A Luxurious Bathroom With Symmetrical Interiors

A well-designed bathroom improves the luxury quotient of your home interiors several notches.

Sleek and comfortable bathroom interior design helps you relax and unwind and rejuvenate your mood each time. And what better way to enhance the interiors other than symmetrical balance?

Here are a few easy tips that you can incorporate the next time you plan a bathroom makeover.

Dual Vanity Unit

To bring in symmetrical balance in the interior design of your bathroom, opt for a dual vanity unit. Identical mirrors will make your bathroom look bigger and brighter,

while dual cabinets not just add harmony to your space but double up your storage area too. You can also choose hexagonal slate tiles for the walls to infuse geometric patterns in your bathroom.

This bathroom design is not just symmetrical but houses your laundry unit and bathtub seamlessly without appearing bulky.

Mirror With Flanking Sconces

Flanking sconces are another easy trick for a symmetrical balance in your bathroom’s interiors.

These decorous wall sconces highlight the vanity unit and makes it the focal point of your bathroom.

We have opted for brass lamp holders to match the entire bathroom fittings. This bathroom is a perfect example of a minimalistic design with a touch of luxury.

Similar Colour And Patterns

Other than dual vanity and harmonious light settings, we have used similar colours and patterns in this bathroom to ace the symmetrical balance in design.

The beige colour on the walls and the floor lends a tranquil vibe, while the white laminates on the vanity unit match the sinks, bathtub, and pot, maintaining continuity across the space.

You can also add two floating shelves on either side of the vanity unit to complete the symmetrical look while increasing the display space for your toiletries.

Things To Avoid While Designing Your Symmetrical Home Interiors

  • Don’t go overboard with symmetry in interiors as it will destroy the cosy quotient of your home interiors. 
  • Try to avoid bulky furniture; modern space-saving furniture is easy to incorporate in symmetrical home interior design
  • Too many patterns can be a sore to the eye; balance the design with muted colours and indoor plants.
  • Avoid multiple pieces of floor mounted furniture as it will take up unnecessary floor space and make your home look cluttered. 
  • Go for a single focal point and bring in symmetry in interiors around it. Too many focal points can create a distraction.
  • Do not use multiple textures and finishes; instead play with two similar or contrasting finishes to create symmetrical balance
  • You don’t always need to create a mirror image between two sides of a room for symmetry; subtle changes as mentioned above can also bring a visible balance to your home interiors.
