A visually attractive web design doesn’t just come up with the drag and drop of some features, but, it takes time to have a web design that genuinely attracts the user towards itself.

Great website design includes more than a stylishly satisfying appearance.

Actually, a group of experts with various specialized techniques are occupied with each significant choice – when it is done the right way. Like the expression beauty is in the eye of the beholder', viable website design is judged by the clients of the site and not the site proprietors. There are many elements that influence the ease of use of a site, and it is about designed (how great it looks), as well as capacity (how simple is it to utilize). We have gathered 4 of the top principles that lead to having a web design which looks great. They are as follows:

  • Easily Understood
  • White space
  • Navigation
  • Color

1. Mobile Friendly

It has now become a necessity to create website designs in such a way that they look perfect on all types of devices and screen sizes, which in two words is known as a mobile friendly design or site. If for instance, your website design is not mobile friendly, we suggest you rebuild it or ask some professional to do that for you as it won’t take much time for making it responsive.

2. White space

White space is the space between all the elements on a page. It is also referred as the negative space of the web design. If the white space is used effectively in a web design, it automatically makes your website look great. This year, the trend of simple and attractive websites is on the up.

3. Navigation

Navigation is about how simple it is for individuals to make an action on your site and move around it. A few strategies for successful navigation incorporate a sensible page hierarchy, utilizing the bread crumbs, designing interactive buttons, and following the 'three click rule’ which implies clients will have the capacity to discover the data they are searching for inside three clicks.

4. Color

The key towards achieving the perfect color combination for your site is, to begin with, a base color and then in contrast with that, choosing the secondary colors. Bear in mind that highly colorful website results in giving an unprofessional look of your site. So, play less in the color scheme but play smart as well.

These 4 principles do play a vital role in deciding whether or not your web design is a good one or not, so try not to avoid them at all.
