30 Awesome Textures for Creating Subtle Grunge Designs

Websites that possess a “subtle grunge” style are some of my favorites. Electric Pulp and Function are excellent examples of this particular style. If you’re wanting to achieve this look in one of your upcoming designs, these textures will come in handy.

    These are amazing. Grungy backgrounds are being used more and more on professional designs too. It can make the major content area look even cleaner.

    Thanks guys.

    I like Subtle Scratches 2 the most. It has brilliant colors.
