50+ Pattern Sets To Spice Up Your Website’s Background

Have you ever felt bored with the plain colored background on your website? When a plain colored background can’t create the mood you want to present in your design, maybe you should try to improve your design by using a tiled pattern for your background.

Though repetitive patterns often remind us of the old-fashioned era, sometimes a pattern can also be the answer to your confusion in taking your design appearance to the next level. Let’s take a look at some examples of nice websites with a repetitive pattern as the background below.

Some Good Examples

Kaleidoscope
From Kaleidoscope website, we learn that a patterned background can be combined with some colorful elements and the result is still eye-catching. For web-designers with great talent in illustration, they can mix and match a colorful illustration and paste it on a repetitive background to make the design more memorable like what we see on the Hugs For Monster website.

Tanya Merone
As in Tanya Merone and Elitist Snob’s websites, we learn that combining a tiled patterned background and a plain colored background is just like getting the best of both worlds. We could get a bit of simplicity from the plain background and also a bit of crowd from the repetitive pattern which together turn the design appearance into something in balance.

Viget Labs
Patterns remind us of our home’s wallpapers and some designers also use it to create a real situation in design. Take a look at the Viget Labs website, the designer has combined the tiled pattern with real object photos to make the design look real, it feels like we’re staring at the wall of someone’s house for real.
