What Is “White Space” In Web Design?

Today, in this blog post, I want to give you some advice incase you are editing your own website, editing one I built you or you are working on a website that you are building independently. This advice is about White Space in web design.

What is “White Space”? Simply put, it is the chunks of white, open space on a website. It is parts of the site that do not have any content. It is the part of your site that is just, literally, White Space.

White space will customise your website without costing anything. It is micro branding – do you want to ram the information down a visitors face or do you want to invite them to have a good experience reading your website.

White space makes your website more attractive since it acts like buffers between content. It helps the user take time to interpret information since the white space helps in the display of work more clearly.

So, don’t be afraid of white space.
