When thinking about the creation of the article of 50 websites with food photography backgrounds I was sure that it would take just a few hours. I thought “Hey, there are so many fantastic photos of fresh fruits, exotic dishes and sweet chocolates that I’ll create the most mouthwatering post ever.” That’s why I started working with great enthusiasm. While dreaming about nourishing food I’ve found 10 great restaurant websites and stopped at a loss. There were too little websites with food (and drinks) photography backgrounds. For me it was a bad discovery! Now I know and want you to know that food and catering related websites rarely use mouthwatering backgrounds. But rarely doesn’t mean never.
At least I’ve found 50 nice-looking cafe and restaurant websites that are worth of your attention. While researching tasty web designs I’ve noticed that there are a lot of small and middle-sized images of foods and drinks. Almost all those images look realistic and I’m sure that a photographer spent a lot of time to get such great results. Site visitors will remember each image and come back to find the address of the restaurant. So why not to choose bigger photos to gain more success?
In general web designers use image sliders with full-screen images to arrange sites backgrounds. It always looks original and interesting. Sometimes pictures are so great that you forget about everything and wait for the next slide. It creates a powerful customers involvement in your cooking business and brings them a strong motivation to visit your cafe/bar/restaurant/shop. It happens that web designers and restaurateurs choose a single photo for a website’s background. It also works well because you can perfectly combine an image with pages’ layout and content. Both these types of backgrounds fit food and catering related websites, so you’re welcome to choose the one you like more. Everything depends on your requirements and creative thinking.
You probably know that large background images are widely spread on the web. Millions of web designers use professional images to focus customers’ attention on products they sell. If photos are well matched they make the website alive. In case photos are not so good you’re failed! So if you have memorable and mouthwatering photos of fresh fruits or delicious deserts, people will forgive you bad dishes descriptions, complex site navigation, inconvenient pages layout and perhaps even high prices in a restaurant menu.
Eye-catchy images will always help you create an impressive restaurant website, but there is a thing to remember: don’t kill your site by showcasing stock photos. When viewing beautiful images of dishes on a web page people expect to taste them in the restaurant. Make sure that your dishes from a menu look similar to those from a website.
Ok, that’s all for today! And if you want to have a cafe or restaurant website with a big photo background you can get inspired by viewing these 50 mouthwatering web designs.
