When you mention patterned/tiled backgrounds, people immediately think of horrid MySpace pages and web designs circa-1990’s. It is therefore a worthy achievement when an artist is able to use this technique to make a website look stunning and attractive. An effective background design pattern can leave a memorable and positive feeling on the people who view these works of art.

Here I’ve compiled 20 beautiful and artistic websites that use tiled patterns to set their webpage apart from the ordinary.
1) Enlighten Designs
4) We Do The Web
5) Impressive Work
6) Hotel Belwether
7) David Loop
8) Olly Hite
10) Elitist Snob
11) Imagined Creative
12) THE SIDES
13) Tanya Merone
15) Jen Gordon
16) Viget Labs
18) Robert Beerworth Blog Australia
20) Saint Augustine Bed and Breakfast
These are all designs I feel have truly achieved a unique look by using a background pattern instead of going the safe route with a solid color.
Do you have any other websites to add to the list? Did I miss a website that belongs here? Be sure to leave the links on your comments.
