5 Reasons To Love The Maximalist Style
The more, the merrier when it comes to this design approach
Nowadays, you probably hear a lot of people say "less is more" when it comes to decorating their spaces—however, this isn't the case for all homes. While there are countless perks to becoming a minimalist, nothing can beat the bold and energetic aesthetic maximalist homes bring to the table. Here a few reasons why you should experiment with this one-of-a-kind and vibrant look:
1. You don't have to match everything perfectly.
Have you ever experienced liking two pieces with opposite styles for a single space? When it comes to the maximalist style, there's no need to worry about clashing designs. Feel free to use both or even add more pieces!
2. You can play with color.
For most traditional spaces, homeowners would normally use one or two shades at most. However, for those who are fans of the maximalist style, they would gladly paint their walls in all the colors of the rainbow and you can do the same, too.
3. You can also combine color with pattern.
If experimenting with color is not out-of-the-box enough for your taste, go ahead and mesh it with patterns. Don't think twice about pairing chevron prints with polka dots, all that matters is that you're happy with the final look.
4. You have a reason to display your collection of collections.
Do you have a penchant for knickknacks? This is your chance to showcase all your favorite pieces without having to worry about making your home look cluttered. Remember to choose items to highlight and keep the rest in neatly kept cabinets or shelves.
5. There's no such thing as making your home look overdecorated.
A lot of people think that maximalism is simply adding things to a space, but in reality, this style is all about strategic layering—it is the art of combining pieces that have sentimental value with decorative items that reflect your personality.
