Color in Website Design


One must not choose colors at random while designing a website but only after due consideration of what would be good for your niche audience or website users. Under no circumstance would any business website want the site users/ browsers to feel bad about the bad choice of colors or design. Hence it becomes essential to plan the clors well in advance.

Here are a few things to remember.

  • Maintain contrast in color between background and the text color
  • Colors should be replaceable for different browser settings
  • Prefer plain and solid text
  • Avoid too many colors
  • Use color coding for navigation
  • Let the site color convey the firms character and message
  • Have consistency in color
  • Avoid backgrounds with textures
  • Consider the popular color blindness needs
  • Avoid florescent writing
  • Regarding colors on site get color feedback from customers
  • Consider lighting condition of viewers
  • Consult color wheel chart before pairing colors
