Tips for Choosing Colors For Your Website Design

web designing on computers

The first tip is to create a color palette and if you’re like me, I like to make color combinations that are mild to the eyes. A color palette will help make your website look great, because with this as your guide and tool, it can make color decisions on what to use next on each part of your website seamless. The palette will also be a proven study that these colors go well together and it has proven time and time again that choosing from a color palette is more acceptable to the viewers of your website than second-guessing what looks great.

So how do you come up with a great color combination? There are many options available if you search around the internet, all you need to do is search for color palette generators or samples. There is a tool named paladin color palette that is one of my favorites as it just asks you to put it your most basic or base colors then it will automatically add the additional colors that fit with your palette. There is no need to be an expert web designer or color matchmaker, you have tools out there that will help you.

Judge colors by your taste or with someone you can get a second opinion on, certain colors clash and certain colors go well together, says Asheville Web Design. Colors also have a psychological impact on people so blues and greens are calming red isn’t it goes the other way around.

For whatever reason, that’s just the way our brains are designed. To be able to select a color palette that works well together, when choosing a color consider the industry that you’re in so for example if you had a nightclub website you probably want to choose darker colors right night light life neon reds and blues and black. It will be pretty funny seeing an all-white night club website.

If you’re doing a restaurant if you look at like Olive Garden they use natural or earthy colors Browns and pastel greens and you know reminds you of nature so you want to look at the industry that you’re working with in terms of the subject of the site and from there you can then choose a color palette accordingly.

Color matching is very important but also consider the psychology of the color and also, consider the subject matter of the site if you’re developing a website for a nightclub you’re gonna have a different set of colors compared to if you’re developing a website for I don’t know an Oceanside Villa or maybe a seafood restaurant you get the idea.
