Interior Design | Maximalism in Office Design


Whilst minimalism is timeless, we believe it could be time for the simplistic style to step aside in favour of something a bit more fun. Incorporating maximalism into your office might be a little daunting, but our expert office designers can create a striking workspace which truly brings your brand identity to life.

What is Maximalism?

Maximalism really is the marmite of interior design, whilst some people hate it, others absolutely love it.

Key features to this style are rich, bold colours and a mixture of patterns and textures alongside eccentric decor. Many examples incorporate two or more wallpaper designs, bringing together things which you would not usually expect, such as floral and geometric prints side by side in a way which is so wrong that it’s right.

It is a common misconception that maximalism encourages clutter. Maximalism embraces the bold and the bright and refines the things that you have to a curated collection of the unusual.

Executing this style can be difficult, as there is a fine line between creating a luxurious and bold space and one that is overcrowded and complex.

Why Do We Love Maximalism?

Maximalism is a great opportunity to show off your personal style, by selecting colours, art and patterns that resonate with you and your company.

It’s a chance to display any and all of the styles that you love. You can have Art Deco and Modernism sharing the stage, 1970’s and 1990’s furniture displayed together, as long as everything is considered, it will work with maximalism.

What Does it Take?

We believe a key factor in creating the perfect maximalist room is having sufficient space. Due to the sheer volume of patterns, colours and items, having a large space is vital in ensuring that the space feels curated rather than cluttered.

Light is also a key factor to ensure that the space does not feel dark, cluttered and overwhelming. It is important for the room to be well lit, whether it is by natural light or a dramatic light fixture, such as pendant lights with decorative filament bulbs or even a chandelier. You have to bear in mind that the morale of workers is affected by the lighting of a workspace, with dark rooms causing eye strain and a less motivated atmosphere.

We also believe that it’s important to consider the patterns you are choosing, whilst you may wish to select two patterns simply because you like them, they still need to complement each other to enhance the space they are in. Many believe that this style is only for the home, however, at Bluespace we believe that maximalism could be perfect for creating a vibrant and incredibly unique office space by incorporating bold wallpapers and miss-matching, colourful furniture.
