How To: Choose a Color Scheme For Your Website

 

Choosing a good color scheme for your website could be a scary thing and it takes times to finally decide. This is especially difficult if you’re not confident about color co-ordinations, or if you feel that you’re not a skilled designer. If you hit a blank on what and how to use color on your website, this post may help you.

You often have the following questions…
– What color should you use for your logo or headline?
– Do you know how to pick complementary colors that combine well?
– Which part of your website should you use color?
– Which colors should you mix with each other and where?

These questions can sometimes make you want to avoid using any colors, resulting a website that looks uninspiring. Then again if you use too much color or combinations on your website you risk making it look confusing and tacky. The result can look harmonious, or like a scene straight out of a horror film! This happens when you don’t have a natural aptitude for color and design.

So, follow these simple steps to start putting colors together for your website: 

  • Start by choosing a dominant color for your website and brand.
  • Then you can combine complementary colors to create a color scheme.
  • Choose a background color that works with the chosen color scheme.
  • Use color only to bring personality on your website – less is more!
