More recently there has been a shift away from using multiple website sidebars. Responsive designs have pushed towards more compact layouts which often drop off sidebars into the footer, or hide them altogether. However some larger websites such as online magazines utilize dual-sidebars for featured articles and larger advertisements.
In this gallery I have organized 27 unique website layouts built with 2 sidebars. It isn’t a foregone trend but running multiple sidebars has become more of a nuance in some cases. I still like the idea of wider layouts. Also sidebars can help to structure page content in a more readable fashion. If you know of any similar dual-sidebar websites feel free to share with us in the comments area below.
