36 Examples of Textures used in Web Design

A great way to add depth to a website these days is to help create more of a dynamic environment, or portray a lifelike material. These days, you can’t go a day without seeing at least 5 or 6 tweets about free textures, or “Retweet to win premium textures”. We are even guilty for offering a few texture freebies as well. Textures have been a driving force for a lot of websites, and rightfully so.. why not bring outside inspirations to our computer screens.

Here we have 36 examples of textures used in Web Design, not only as backgrounds but textures can be applied to a lot of different web elements. You should notice that as textures have been part of website backgrounds for quite a while, designers are now putting textures on the forefront.

    This collection of textured backgrounds are excellent. The designs that have added texture, have a more defined style and depth of design, making them more interesting and appealing to the relevant audience.

    But what about load times? These textures aren’t 20x20px squares repeated; these are large complex backgrounds. Don’t these have a negative impact on page load?

    @Tim I would imagine there is a slight delay with some sites loading but a little bit of effort into optimisation and some focus on tiling properly and they wouldn’t be a problem.
    Increasingly people are designing for now commonplace broad band connections and the load factor is much less of an issue, although with google recently saying faster websites may rank higher we may see a shift but no doubt not at the expense of the creative.
