Remember to use white spaces because they help in avoiding your website from becoming a visual clutter and a mess. You should avoid using too many colors too. You should limit it to three or four tones for the whole website, they are enough to give an appealing and clear design. The same with putting images. Don’t use multiple vibrant images, as it may result in a messy interface.
