So you’ve decided that your business needs a new website, and perhaps you want a new WordPress website built for your business.
Yet there’s a few things that you are unsure about, such as which colour your website should be.
That’s to say do you opt for a really bright colour, or will this look dated after a while?
Or do you opt for a more minimalist website, where the website uses say just a white background with a black text?
Well, to help you decide, we have asked our website designers to offer you some advice.
#1 Be consistent
It’s really important to be consistent, so for example, if your opting for a bright colour on your website, will you be able to carry this colour scheme through to the branding of your business cards, and let’s say your shop front.
Or do you believe that the colour scheme will not work with say the front of your shop?
So, this is why many businesses opt for a minimalist website, that’s because a website that has a white background and a black text does not look dated, plus it can be used to accompany a bright coloured logo which then matches say a business card or your business premises.
#2 Why we recommend a minimalist style
We think that minimalist websites are great for a lot of businesses, that’s if they are designed correctly.
Here at our web design agency we only design high quality websites, so we design a lot of minimalist websites simply because our customers do not want a website that will look dated after a period of time.
That’s to say minimalist websites therefore have a design that that can look high-quality and may not look as dated as a website that tries to be more cutting edge.
#3 Pick out a few company websites that you like
Sometimes some customers may find it difficult to articulate the design that they actually want, that’s to say sometimes you could attend several meetings at your web designers studio, yet even after many hours finalising the design, the final design may look quite different.
This is why we always recommend that our clients find a few businesses where they like their websites, and then we can use this as an idea of how to design your website.
So for example, you may like one businesses menu, another businesses homepage layout and another businesses contact page, so we can then combine all this information so that your new website is designed just the way your business wants.
#4 What font are you going to use?
Also think about which font your business wants to use, as the font should match the websites design.
#5 Why a white background is often a good option
If you are unsure as to which colour scheme you would like, we would always recommend opting for a white background, why do we say this?
Well, because quite simply white backgrounds make text easy to read, plus a white background can make some websites look more minimalist, and therefore less cluttered.
