Website backgrounds often do not get enough attention. This is a shame, 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, whether you use parallax scrolling or a still image. 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 used as a fullscreen background, a color gradient, or maybe some cute illustrations that decorate the frame. When you decide how to make a website, take some time to think about which background is right for you. Whether you choose to use your own photos or Wix images, your background should make a powerful statement.
Here we have a list of 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!
