Keeping the design simple is the top most tips for website designing. In the process of designing a trendy website may times website designers forget about this simple rule and end up designing a website that is not only cluttered but also useless. For this reason, we advise all our followers to the most fundamental rule of keeping website design simple whenever they are on to designing websites. Your website should serve the purpose for which it has been designed. For example, if your website has been designed to provide information on a particular topic then it should straightaway give that information to the visitor. It should not confuse the visitor at all.
Our second tip is a follow on the first tip itself. Your website should serve the purpose of its design straightaway. As we said above, you should always ensure that the most important information or purpose is placed right at the beginning so that it gets maximum attention. If you are a retailer who sells on your website then your USP items should be displayed on the home page itself. The third tip is about the flow of your website. You should always try to have a very smooth flow of your website. Too many pop-ups and dialogue boxes can ruin the experience of surfing a website. Similarly you should use images very judiciously. Loading your webpage with too many images can destroy the scheme of the website. If the internet connection is not very good then an image heavy website will not load properly. Texts will load much before the images and that will make your website look much cluttered.
The third point is about the visual appeal of your website. Visual appeal refers to the look and feel of your website. You should use colours which fit into a theme. People often commit the mistake of using colours that do not fit into a scheme and that may make your website look very gaudy. A thematic colour scheme can make your website look very appealing. Similarly, fonts also play a major role in betterment of your website’s look. A readable website is always appreciated by visitors.
The final tip that we want to leave you with is about the number of pages that you want to have for your website. It is often a good idea to limit the number of pages to minimum.
