White railing works well with any deck board and complements brick, shingles, stucco, or vinyl and fiber-cement siding. It’s a great look for stairs and porches, too. Fiberon Symmetry Railing features a classic profile in a sturdy, low-maintenance composite that never needs paint or stain.

An in-kitchen eating area - perfect for kids and family or for entertaining - is a key feature in this open-plan kitchen. The symmetry, along with the all-white cabinetry and tile backsplash, make the room feel large, clean and organized. Modern-style hanging globes give the space an industrial look while providing plenty of lighting.
If the architecture of your room is symmetrical, hang the same wreath in all of your windows at the same height. You can use the wreaths as jumping-off points for spacing out the rest of your seasonal elements.

The use of pairs creates symmetry and order in this urban apartment. Chests add much-needed storage, mirrors pull light into the space and upholstered stools add pull-up seating to the living and dining areas. The framed art above the banquette — a photo of a floral arrangement from the homeowners' wedding — adds a personalized touch to the space.
