How These Trends Have Been Incorporated into the Latest Pre-Built Website Designs

Many of today’s websites have the appearance of being carbon copies of one another. There are several reasons for this, one of which is a need to accommodate mobile devices, a need that places certain constraints on website design.

There remains plenty of room for innovation however, as you will see in the examples shown here. Recent trends and practices include everything from streamlined and minimal designs, to the use of micro effects, long scrolling, and the aforementioned use of hero images.

By using these trends, website designs can attain a high degree of uniqueness. While this is true of these most recently launched pre-built websites, they still have a few things in common. Be Theme’s pre-built websites can be installed with one click, customizing them is easy, and no coding is required.
