A Showcase of Clean White Web Designs

By / Jan 8, 2010 / Inspiration

When it comes to web design, white is always a symbol of elegance, minimalism and style. You can use white to create space, to keep it simple, to drive the attention to other elements at your page and also to maintain your site with a clean and minimal look. Several websites use white as their main color, and this is what we will show here. You probably have seen some of these sites before, but they are such a great example that I had to mention them again. And in case you want to share a “clean white website”, the comments are open!

    The importance of White Space can be so eaily underestimated these days. Thank you for sharing these.

  • http://shawnhooghkirk.com Shawn Hooghkirk

    I agree with Matt. It’s amazing how leaving things out and keeping it simple can make all the difference in the world.

    Thanks for sharing.

    My own design portfolio uses a lot of white space. Please have a look at it, would be great to have it considered for a list similar to this. cheers.

    http://www.designthatrocks.com also uses its share of white space if anyone cares to check it out.

    Great post! There are some fantastic sites here…very inspirational.

    Check out http://www.whatcreative.co.uk for another really clean and simple design.

    I definitely think white websites are the way forward. They bring the focus onto good quality content which is something that is much needed in this age of the internet.

  • http://www.creativemashup.pl Piotr Podgorski

    This one is company website, styled in white: http://www.testsolutions.pl

    Do you think that it has got a good feeling?

  • http://www.elemental.co.za Elemental – South Africa Web Development

    thanks for the sites, I believe overall they are nice however sometimes they can be a little bit too bland / boring and need more colour / design elements to break the white.

  • Thomas

    Here you have another clean white site inspiration http://www.schallinger.se/ and http://www.theartofmetropia.com/

  • http://robertchambers.me Robert Chambers

    Thanks for sharing. I’m certainly a fan of using clean white layouts.

  • http://www.iandevlin.com Ian Devlin

    Nice list, I too enjoy a good white, minimalist site.

    Like many other posters here, my homesite is also white and minimalist, perhaps too much so (am currently redesigning it – but it will retain it’s white minimalist look!)

  • http://www.raggededgedesign.com Max Ottignon

    Thanks for featuring our site. We’ve just redesigned it if anyone’s interested: http://www.raggededgedesign.com – we’ve kept the tight grid system and the minimalist design but added a little more colour. Still mostly white though!

  • http://www.forgeseo.com Matt M.

    I am a huge fan of the variety of white, minimalist designs shown here. Some months ago when we started our ethical seo company, we considered the white minimalist style to be in line with our brand objectives. You might find it a good addition to your next list. Well done!

  • http://www.philipbrunner.com Philip Brunner

    Clean white space with a sprinkle of creative ingenuity always inspires.

  • http://www.chykalophia.com Ari Suardiyanti
