In web design as in life, the “background” often does not get enough attention. This is too bad, because a website background has the potential to make or break the entire design.
An ideal website background sets the mood and atmosphere you wish to convey. It catches the visitor’s eye but never distracts from the actual site content. It raises curiosity and demonstrates originality and sophistication. It can be a photograph spread wide across the screen, or maybe some cute illustrations that decorate the frame. There’s no specific style that is better than the others, it’s just a question of finding the right one for your website.
Here we have a list of Wix websites – all created by Wix users – that boast a really great background. These will give you a good idea of the different types of backgrounds you can choose from. Get inspired!
