Balance means the harmonious arrangement or relation of parts or elements within a whole as in a design. Hence, ‘Balance’ involves the equilibrium and distribution of weight of elements evenly between two sides of a display. Balance is based on a theory of equals. A ‘Traditional or Symmetrical Balance’ is such that it has a large element on one side and a large element on the other side. Such a type of balance is especially suited for and effective in stores where expensive and quality merchandise is being presented.

An ‘Informal or Asymmetrical Balance’ is such that the two sides of a display appear to be of equal weight. However, they are not exact replicas of each other. Such a balance creates a flow or rhythm and a feeling of excitement. In such an asymmetrical balance, a large element is balanced by several small items or an area of empty space, a bright color or a shot of lights. Several soft colors are kept in a large space. These soft colors are then balanced by one bright color in a small area. The balance occurs as the intensity of the bright color counter balances its small size.
