80 Stunning Background Patterns For Your Websites

October 28th, 2009

We are always attracted to the outstanding design, layout or content when we click in a website, but seldom of us would notice the textures and patterns that are used. If there are only background colors, many websites would not be that eye-catching as they are now.

Patterns can be simply repetition of simple stipes or polka-dots, others can be more complicated with complex combination of images and colors. A pattern must go with the overall style of the website, or it could be rather distractvie and annoying.

We have collected the following 80 brand new and stunning patterns. Best of all, they are all free to use. What are you waiting for? Use them on your website and give a whole new feeling to your visitors.
