Color Palette

One thing you need to do when planning your website design is to create a color palette. Creating an actual palette can be difficult and challenging if you do not have a great deal of experience. If you want to make your website look great, using a great color combination can be a great way to do just that. There are online sites that give you free color combination recommendations. You can also access many different books that give palette combinations for different color schemes and themes.

Images

It’s also important to have great looking images. This can be challenging, but there are ways to creatively obtain good images. You can take your own pictures, or hire a photographer. Having custom images for your website is a great way to make your website stand out. In addition, you will have the images be extremely relevant to you and your business. If you don’t have any money to hire a photographer, and you still want to use great looking images on your website, there are some great resources where you can find paid stock images, like iStockphoto or Shutterstock. There are also some free resources that you can use, like Unsplash and Pixabay photos.

Using Space

Another thing to consider when web designing is the usage of space. Just adding a little bit of extra space around all of the elements that you put on your website can make a world of difference. This goes especially for text. You want to have space around your heading, space around the body of your text. You should also consider adding extra space around not only the text, but also your images and the graphics. This allows your users to sort of see what they are, scan them, and have that space around them to draw their eye to it.
