Good looking websites 2021 – examples and inspiration!
It only takes a few seconds before a visitor has an idea of whether or not your website is attractive. But it is not only the visual that is important, because a website must also offer the right features to its visitors.
In this article, we tell you what makes a website design look good, and we also give you 20 concrete examples of good website designs that are both functional and good looking design-wise.
5 things a good website design must meet
- Most of the web pages should have the same color language. A uniform design is the key when it comes to developing great looking websites.
- The website must be responsive. This is to make it look good even on mobiles and tablets. A website that is responsive gives a nice and uniform expression.
- The page should have no more than 3 fonts. One font for body text, and another for headings are usually sufficient.
- The menu should be logical and easy to find. In addition, all important pages should be in the menu.
- The website must fulfill its function. It should be easy to book trips on a booking site, and just as easy to buy products at an e-commerce store.
We have these tips and more in mind when we create a new website for you.
3 benefits of having a great looking website
- Conversions increase. This means that more people choose to shop in your e-commerce store, or order services if that is what your company offers.
- The visitors will return. Visitors who experience your website as good-looking and easy to navigate usually choose to visit your page again, instead of one of your competitors’ pages.
- Your brand is strengthened. This is because the visitor sees your website as an extension of your business. So if your website is good looking and functional, then your brand is strengthened.
Good website design: Form and function
A nice website that visitors find difficult to use has failed, and the same applies to easy-to-use websites that are not looking good. Successful websites should be both attractive and functional.
More specifically, the visitor should be impressed by the design, while also understanding how the website works and is structured. We are happy to take a chat with you regarding these considerations, if you choose to buy a website from us.
