Website design trends change so fast, sometimes it is hard to follow. Patterned backgrounds have existed since website design started to be considered in developing webpages. These are usually basic and add style to an otherwise plain white background. Interestingly, patterned backgrounds are becoming popular again in recent years but have taken a more modern style. Here are some examples of cool patterned backgrounds you can use for inspiration:
