Maximalism In The Hallway: How to use bold colours for your staircase design

Maximalism decor has the ability to create a wow factor for any home, using bold colours somewhere like the hallway, ensuring visitors are left speechless as soon as they walk through the door. From deep greys to moody blues and ambient greens, combining bold shades with a unique staircase design has the ability to completely transform your home’s entrance.

What is Maximalism?

With maximalism, more is more!  Many of us use deeper colour palettes and eccentric features to express our individuality through interior design. Our homes are very much an extension of our personality and style. With maximalism there are no rules, making this trend a really fun and expressive way to make a statement, particularly through one of the most important parts of the home – the hallway!

Let the colour do the talking

Earthy and ambient tones have been a long-standing trend for interiors. If you have high ceilings or larger windows in your hallway, deep greys and moody blues are a wonderful way to complement natural light in the home.

2021 saw Ultimate Grey as Pantone’s colour of the year and while greys are still incredibly popular in the hallways, many of us are seeking more intense colours with greens, blues and deep reds. Blues in particular are thought to bring a calming sense. According to Interior Design Psychology Expert, Niki Schafer, blues can ‘literally soothe us and (very marginally) lower our blood pressure’. A perfect ambiance for when first walking through the door.

How to create Maximilaism in your home

For such a big trend, the efforts to achieve Maximimalism don’t have to be. Simply adding bold and dramatic prints to any type of staircase, or painting even just a window feature wall in a darker hue can do the trick. However, dramatising the staircase itself isn’t as big of a job as you might think.

If you’re looking for something a little more artistic, replacing the balustrade with a dark smoked oak, even against a lighter decor can create a real wow factor. Neville Johnson staircase renovations take as little as 1-2 days and include zero building work. By simply cladding your existing staircase and replacing the balustrade and newel post, you can completely transform your hallway into a stunning focal point.
