How to Grow Column on Hover in Elementor

Looking for the hover effect where the column, including the background and the contents, zoom-in, grows or scales up when you hover the mouse cursor over it? Well, let me tell you, you’re on the right tutorial! I’ll teach you how to create that hover effect through Elementor step-by-step without plugins or addons!

This will be the effect that you should be able to get once you completed this tutorial. Please excuse how ancient my example is!


Without further ado, let’s begin our tutorial!

Step 1: First, create a new section on Elementor’s visual editor.


Step 2: Select which type of section do you need. This will basically work for any of them.


Step 3: Let’s add some widgets to our section to spice things up! Just drag your chosen widget from the sidebar widgets panel to the section area.



Step 4: Now, right-click the bounding box of the column and click edit column.


Step 5: Then on the side-bar panel, go to Styles > Background > Background type and choose Classic.


Step 6: Then, go to Advanced and go to Advanced.


Step 7: Search for the Custom CSS section.


Step 8: Once you find it, paste this code on the text area there:

selector:hover {
    transition: all .2s ease-in-out;
    transform: scale(1.2);
    cursor: pointer;
    z-index: 1;

NOTE: See that “selector”? That’s the type of Widget we’re currently using. So if you decide to change the heading, make sure you update it as well so you don’t end up change something else… like I did!


Now we’re done! Just replicate the same procedure to your sections and you’d be designing like the best!
