Gray is Great!

The collection of stylish gray web designs, both formal and not!

ow users interact with the website greatly depends on the colors you choose for your design. Suitable colors can stimulate users' interest in your website while unsuitable colors can easily suppress their interest whatever the content is.

Web design exploits all the possible colors - some of the colors are used more often and some are less. The color I noticed being used more often recently is gray. Generally, gray is a neutral color, sometimes even considered dull. But it has been reclassified recently and successfully applied in web design.

As a color of formality, gray is often used to sophisticated and classy websites. Gray is not a strong color, and that's why Using shades of gray can add a nice calm feel to the website. Also, gray is a rather balanced color, and therefore is combined easily and successfully with the majority of colors making the website look cool.
