Full – width web design
We don’t have backgrounds anymore, due to wider websites, which stretch to the edge of the browser window. In most cases, this design has eliminated sidebars on web pages. Without the use of these sidebars, navigation has moved to the header making the utilization of the website much easier.
We now have the use of hero header, the use of hero image or text at the top of the homepage and other pages. Different media are used as hero headers, for example, image, image slider or video clips which are becoming very popular. The hear hero is the first thing a visitor encounters on your website, and it represents your idea and your goals. It often has some links which will draw readers deeper into your site.

Even though bold colors and images are in trend now, keep in mind that you need to have an organized site, which will have a beautiful and clean appealing, not messy and hard to manage.
