In the world of online business, the web development and designing has evolved to a great extent. People are heading towards the web designing companies.
There are many important factors to consider when designing a website. It doesn’t matter whether the website is on WordPress or any other platforms.
For a web designer, it’s important to think like a magician to create something interesting and attractive. You all know that for a website, the design has a major influence on its readers than anything else.
The first thing your readers notice is the design of your website. Are you are a blogger who wants to turn into a web designer?
Well, there are some factors to consider while designing a website.
What Are Those Important Factors To Consider When Designing A Website?
Before starting the list, you must have a cool mind to design something mesmerizing. I have noticed that people fret a lot when they see any new design.
They should think it like an innovative idea for a new design of your next project. Having the positivity is very important for a businessperson.
Let me start the list.
1. Know Your Customer’s Mind And Then Start.
When you receive any project to design any website then before starting, you should read the mind of your customer. You may be thinking how can you do that.
Well, you are not an astrologer or psychiatrist. Just ask your customer about their choice. They may choose from your old projects or ask them to show you an example.
There are many websites on the web, they may have seen something exquisite which can be your idea to design their website.
2. Keep The Code Clean.
Whenever you start designing the website, you must make sure that the code you right should be user-friendly. If someone else tries to redesign the same website then they should be able to understand the code.
I have experienced that in many WordPress themes, the developers have used many files with useless codes. I mean what’s the need to create four files if you can work with only one?
While designing, you should concentrate on the clean codes. Don’t make it complicated.
3. Don’t Forget About The Mobiles.
One of the most important factors to consider when designing a website is the mobile-friendly design. You should design the website for all the possible media screens.
Nowadays there are many mobile phones with different resolutions. You should optimize the each and every corner of the website for mobiles.
Check your website on an iPad, an iPhone, medium screen phones, older phones with small screen.
4. Check The Color Combination.
The coloring of a website is what makes a good design. It’s all about combining the colors to embrace the better website design. before starting, you need to think about the colors you are going to use.
Don’t just put so many colors on the same website. I mean no one would want a design having 10 different colors. For a business website, try to use maximum four colors. You can also work with only two.
5. Have A Look On The Spacing.
The spacing between each portion of the website should be enough to look clean and elegant. You shouldn’t just combine all the <div> tags together.
Give the proper paddings and margin to the header, content area, the sidebar, footer area etc. The more you provide the space the more your readers would able to read everything.
It doesn’t mean to just expand everything. Look around and analyze the spacing.
6. Choose Simple Yet Beautiful Design.
For a better website, you should know one of the important factors to consider when designing a website. And that’s simplicity.
Don’t ever mismatch the things. If you want to provide an effective design and make sure that it is simple with an attractive appearance.
7. Don’t Forget About The SEO.
If you’re designing a WordPress website then you should thin about the SEO of the website. There are a few designing aspects which can help to provide a better website with proper SEO.
If you’re redesigning a website then you can help your customer by updating their old website with a new level of codes.
8. Elastic Design.
If you know a little bit about CSS then you would be aware of an elastic design. It’s the design which is adjusted according to the user’s device.
When you use the division tags and many other HTML tags then you must make sure to provide the better codes to make it elastic. It may be considered as same as the mobile responsive design.
9. Keep The Content In The Mind.
There are different kinds of websites from which you should know the important factors to consider when designing a website with an alluring look.
If you are designing a WordPress theme for a blog then design it like that only. Don’t design it like a portfolio design. Keep the simple design with the proper amount of images.
10. Customer Satisfaction.
While handling an online business then the most important thing is to think about your customers. How would they react when they would see your work?
Would they be satisfied by the design? Think like them and then design the website. Though it’s hard to make everyone happy but at least you can try.

Web designing is fun if you do it with full dedication. Though it’s the matter of choice but if you are into web designing then embrace your thinking abilities, bring new ideas.
You should try to design your website according to your innovative mind. But you can take the ideas from other websites too.
I have mentioned a few things to consider when designing a website. You just have to keep them in your mind. Practice is the only thing which can make you a better web designer.
Be the one with unique designing ideas and elegant designs.
Spot on tips, my friend. I am amazed at your coding skills. Actually, I’ll jealous because I would love to learn myself. However, I think I might find it as much fun as designing. Might stagnate my creative talents. 🙂
Anyone that I know who is looking for development or coding, I’m sending them your way.
Web designing has always been an interesting thing to jump in. Creating new things is fun. Coding is something we all can do. The only difference is the practice. The more we practice the more we get the results.

Hi Ravi bro,
Those points are indeed wonderful. I would rate keeping professionally simple design with clean and SEO features higher.
One thing I know about website development is that it needs so much patience (maybe I am being too slow) and customers’ mind change often. However, I really feel jealous of you bro. You’ve got an ace up your sleeves on this. Keep going!
I totally agree with you. It’s always good to keep the design clean and simple as possible. Don’t complicate it by adding many colors and by changing the structure of the theme.
The patience is the key. The clients need to understand what they are demanding and how much time is required. One of my clients asked to build and design a website in one day. I mean really?
Well, Sherab it takes the time to learn more about web designing. You just have to be consistent. Glory will be yours.
Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts.
Enjoy the weekend.
I wholeheartedly agree that the blog design plays a useful role in the growth of a blog.
Being professionals, we prefer easy-to-navigate and straightforward web pages while some may like more vibrant pages with a variety of colors.
Another important factor you could add is Font of the page. It plays a prominent role in improving user experience and in turn, helps in SEO.
