Building a website from scratch is an incredibly complex and drawn out process, which can be made slightly easier if you utilize the right tools and the correct software, such as Elementor or WordPress.

In the world of web design, WordPress is a name that web developers and designers are very familiar with, but as of late, more and more people have found themselves also utilizing Elementor and enjoying great success as a result.

If you’re looking to create a new website, then today’s look at web design with WordPress and Elementor should prove fascinating.

Here’s a look at a few tips for web design with WordPress and Elementor.

Begin with a template

To get the ball rolling, if you’re using Elementor to create a webpage, the first thing you will need to do is begin with a template.

Using a template will save you a considerable amount of time as you can select from a number of pre-designed templates from Elementor’s temple library to help you design a webpage without starting from scratch.

To help save even more time, you can also select ‘blocks’ such as ‘contact us’ or ‘services’ etc, which you will find on 99% of most websites online.

Utilize shortcuts

When using Elementor for web design, one of the best things you can do is utilize shortcuts to get things done quickly.

On the page builder of Elementor, you’ll find that the designers have included shortcuts to speed up the design process.

It may not sound like much, but utilizing these shortcuts will noticeably speed up the design process and help streamline things no end.

Use premium WordPress themes

Okay, it’s rare that you get anything for free currently, so in most situations if you’re offered a freebie, it would be wise to accept.

However, when using WordPress, experts agree that it would be far more beneficial for website design to utilize premium WordPress themes than free ones.

You see, free themes on WordPress are troublesome as their code structure is not the best, nor is their functionality. On the flip side, the premium themes on WordPress are to notch and offer responsiveness, functionality, and superior coding qualities that tie in together beautifully to give you fantastic web design.

Put simply, don’t try to scrimp and scrape by, by using free WordPress themes, as the premium ones are widely considered to be money well spent.

Choose the correct font

When it comes to web design with WordPress and Elementor, font is incredibly important.

When choosing a font, choose one that is aesthetic, pleasing on the eye, and easy to read and understand. Once you have your desired font, be sure to use the same font on different parts, sections, and pages of your website.
