Indoor Kentia palm growth pattern

Is it possible to encourage newly developing fronds to grow toward a certain direction in attempt to balance out the overall look of the plant? Right now I have a new frond which is opening up in a space that is already dense with other fronds. Would like to direct it it toward a sparser area of the plant in order to fill the space for an overall balanced look. Will rotating my plant toward the sunlight help?

Should work-is your palm inside or out?

My plant is indoors. I think it may be too late as the frond is almost completely open now. There is another one starting to grow. I'll try to rotate it towards an open space.

This problem will extinct with age as there will be many leaves on palm. Neverthelees it's always recommended to put growing palm's leaf toward room from the window. :)
