5 Simple Website Details to Make You Design Like a Pro

Making your website feel like it was professionally made may not be as hard as it sounds. Here are some details that you can use to achieve that professional finish.


Everyone wants to have a professional looking website, whether it was done in house or outsourced to a design firm. Here are some details that the pros pay attention to so they can make any website look great.

1. Typeface Combinations

The typeface of your site is one of the most important design details that is often overlooked by design novices. While newbies may think having a uniform typeface across your website might be the safest route to follow, having a solid combination of different typefaces will surely make for a more professional feel. You can achieve this by using one typeface for your headings, and a different typeface for your body.

SERIF FOR HEADINGS

Sans Serif for body. A good combination of different typefaces can make for a more professional feel.

2. Great Icons

Using great icons in your website is another detail that is often used by designers. Icons are great at conveying and emphasizing ideas without adding any more text. They are a great eye-catching way to show value. Make sure they match your color scheme!

3. Consistency in Background Tints

One of the details taken for granted is making sure that all your image and background tints match across your website. A mismatch will make your website feel less professional and tidy. Making sure hues are the same goes a long way.

4. Images with Good Quality

The images you use make all the difference in getting that pro feeling. Amateur images make for an amateur looking site so make sure that all images, and other media for that matter, are all of good quality.

In designing your own website, we understand the urge to pull out all the bells and whistles, but more often than not, this only leads to disastrous results.
