Pattern Backgrounds: 40 Beautiful Websites to Inspire You

Read the full post

When building your website, you might want to consider a patterned background. A fancy background might not be the first thing on your list, however, it’s important, and not just for aesthetic reasons – it will help draw more attention and it will blend in with the information featured on your website, tying your ideas together beautifully and coherently.

In order to create a beautiful pattern background, you can blend a variety of design elements until you achieve the perfect look. You can make it vintage and floral, minimalistic and geometric, you can use photorealistic elements, a variety of different layers, and even animations. Additionally, you can opt for a symmetrical look or a random one, or for a colorful palette or a class black and white one. Either way, you’ll want to make a statement that’s in line with your website, whether you’re a blogger, business owner, or app developer.

Coming up with a good background might seem useless and tedious, but trust us, it’s neither! It’s actually a lot easier than it might seem, and you can also have fun with it, as it will allow you to showcase your creativity. You can draw inspiration from other websites and designers, like the wonderful examples we have put together for you in this article, or you can come up with something entirely unique, like a logo that will represent you or a one-of-a-kind pattern that will show the viewer what your website is all about!

We found 40 beautiful websites with pattern backgrounds that we found unique and inspirational that we would like to share with you. We think these are successful examples of taking a website one step further, on both an aesthetic as well as a professional level. We hope these examples will aid you in creating a better, more distinct website that will stand out from the rest. Also, don’t forget to let us know what you think!
