Free Website Layouts

If you are in the beginning stages of putting together your website, then perhaps you could benefit from finding a few free website layouts. Not everyone has an eye for graphic design, and not everyone knows how to manipulate HTML to get the design elements to come together in an attractive and professional manner. Instead, many novice designers start from a pre-made template and begin from there.

These templates come already established with matching backgrounds, links, font colors, and borders. All you have to do is sift through the free website layouts that you find and pick one that reflects your company's style and subject. If you want a cooler, professional look, then perhaps you can use a blue and green template; or, if you want a fiery, youthful appearance for the site, some flame red and orange designs can certainly create a unique and spicy feel for your business' home page.

Free Website Layouts are the Beginning of a Puzzle

Once you find a good template to use, keep in mind that you still have much work to do as a designer. A template is like a framework, a puzzle, and the designer still has to input text, graphics, animation, links, and other tools to make the site as beautiful and as functional as possible. Without even a little planning, even a well-designed layout can turn out muddy and incoherent.

If you don't know how to put all of these pieces of the puzzle together in a cohesive manner, don't fret. There are many companies out there that provide free website templates in addition to website design services. They can show you how to easily upload images, enter text, and add important functional tools to make your website a force to be reckoned with on the Internet.
