Subtle Background Patterns in Web Design

Sometimes it’s the little details in web design that make a big difference.  The use of background patterns can be a subtle detail that some visitors may not even very much attention to, but they can really help to complete a design. Rather than using a solid color or a gradient, patterns can add a subtle texture a a website’s background.

Patterns can also be helpful for designing sites that load quickly, as a smaller repeating pattern will load much faster than a large background photo or non-repeating texture that sits in the background of the design. Having an arsenal of patterns can help to speed up your design process, or you could create a custom pattern whenever the need arises.

In this post we’ll showcase 25 web designs that are examples of the use of subtle background patterns. This should provide some inspiration as these sites are great examples of what can be done with patterns and how they can be a part of a quality design.
