One of the main characteristics of a perfect website design is a sense of harmony and balance. Symmetry and asymmetry in web design are widely used to provide the website with a special image. In human mind symmetry is mostly associated with that balance, so most of us consider symmetry to deliver a true beauty. Asymmetry is much more about unbalanced and wiggy creations. But if we look closer, we can notice that symmetry is not always a beauty and asymmetry is not always a mess.

The term Whitespace in web design is usually referred to the blank space around all other design elements (pics, graphics, text, columns, menus etc.). In fact, it doesn’t necessarily has to be of white color. It just doesn’t have any functional elements, buttons, pictures and typography. This white space can provide the website design with many benefits if it’s used properly.
