20 Websites for Free Background Patterns and Textures

There are three main options to you when choosing a background for your website design. You either choose a solid background color, a solid background image, or a background pattern. A background color can also be used in conjunction with a background image

A background pattern is a tiny image that is repeated into infinity in the background of your website design. This can be done by utilising the background-image and background-repeat CSS properties.

For example, you could repeat a background image vertically by adding this to your CSS stylesheet:

body {
background-image: url('background.gif');
background-repeat: repeat-y;

You could repeat the image horizontally by adding this to your CSS stylesheet:

body {
background-image: url('background.gif');
background-repeat: repeat-x;

In this article, I would like to share with you 20 websites in which you can search for good background patterns and then download them free of charge.
