DS Tip Of The Week: Symmetry vs. Asymmetry

Whether you realize it or not, every design project has an overall “look”… it can be symmetrical, asymmetrical, or a combination of both.

How do you know what’s right for you? Leave it to our Steinhafels Decorating Solutions experts to have some advice for you!

This week’s tip come from one of our Oak Creek designers. Jenii Kluver knows how to take a barren space and bring it to life.

Jenii gives us an inside look at her process. She explains, “Traditional styles often incorporate symmetry to promote balance and elegance, while eclectic styles tend to be a little more free flowing. Try using both styles in your home; hang two of the same size pictures on either side of a fireplace or entertainment stand, but then put an accent ottoman or bench only on one side. Mix it up with different sizes and shapes to give your space a completely unique look!”

DS Tip Of the Week: Mixing Woods. Go Ahead–It’s OK!

Happy 2017!!

How about a Steinhafels’ Decorating Solutions Tip of the Week to start your new year off right!

When redecorating, do you feel stifled by the “rules” of design?  Do you have designer’s block?  Jenii Kluver is an interior designer based at our Oak Creek store.  Today she tackles the concept of mixing woods.

Jenii explains, “People tend to feel the need to match all of the wood colors in their rooms. However, as long as you stick with the same tone of wood (cool, warm, etc.), you can mix and match your wood tables, chairs, cabinets, trim, and flooring.  Just don’t go overboard–you still want it to be visually pleasing!”
