The Best Web Safe Colors for Website Design

Colors vary from monitor to monitor so when designing web pages or graphics, one important thing to remember is not all colors are considered "web safe".

When working with your website's designer you need to make sure that both of you are are using the same HEX number ID for the colors you want.

Even though YOU still may see a difference in color from one monitor to the next, that can be the result of many things unrelated to your design. It is important to choose a specific HEX color from this chart so that the color is consistent within the code of your website.

Website Design Tips for Web Safe Colors

  • Don't ever use BLACK (000000) as a background when creating a website.
  • Stay away from GOLD colors as that color looks like pee on some monitors.
  • Don't do dark on dark or light on light - always using contrasting colors.
  • If you have a non-typical taste in colors or are color blind - you should not choose the colors for your website.
