If your website was built a few years ago, it’s important to ensure it fits the current design trends. Sometimes, you just have to give it a refresh. Adding a couple of design trends can ensure your site looks modern, cleaner and improves conversions.
Here are 4 brilliant ideas to give your website a quick makeover.
Bright and bold colours are trending. So don’t be afraid of using pinks, yellows, greens and blues. Opt for bright backgrounds to accentuate the foreground. Alternatively, you can use bright colours for buttons and other user interaction elements to draw in attention and create an emotional connection.
Gradients are another great way to brighten up your website and create maximum impact. A colour gradient over an image can create the perfect base to add some text or an impactful call to action.
Animated effects are a great way to engage website visitors. You can refresh your website by adding some video as well as animated effects. Moving objects capture instant attention and people would stop and watch the video to see what unfolds.
Begin by adding a video to your site. Be it a full-screen video at the top of a page or any specific part of your page, adding video is easy with a CMS website like WordPress.
You might be tempted to put everything on your page. However, when you make use of white space, it can transform your web design instantly.
An organised, clean page is easier to understand when compared to a cluttered and crowded page. Create a balance between elements like text and photo and space. This creates a distinct pattern that ensures users can move from one element to another.
Change the Header
This is an easy way to give your website a fresh look. There are many websites that offer royalty free stock images. Alternatively, you can hire a photographer to take some quality pictures. You could even hire someone to design a fresh, new header for your site.
The best part about these design elements is that they do not require a complete website redesign. You can change the header or colour of your website without investing in a redesign.
