Best SVG Website Backgrounds

Welcome! In this guide, we're going to be taking a look at some of the best SVG website backgrounds out there.

SVG backgrounds can completely transform a website's design, and help add a beautiful backdrop overall. From patterns to waves, there are so many elements that could be incorporated into the final design.

In this guide, we're going to take a look at some of the coolest backgrounds you can add to your site, as well as the best tools and generators to help you out. Plus, I'll be including screenshots too!

Let's get started!

1. SVG Waves

SVG waves are a popular web design trend that can add a lovely divider between sections in your website. You could also add a glorious mesh gradient, such as the one below, and then add a wave divider.

There are lots of different SVG wave generator tools out there to help you, and these can be fantastic for helping you to generate various waves to add to your projects.

Overall if you're looking to create a super aesthetic landing page, I'd definitely recommend trying out a background with a mesh gradient and SVG waves as a page divider. It would transform any plain landing page into a wonderfully designed landing hero!

2. SVG Waves and Particles

Did you know you could also add an animated particle backdrop to your site? Particle backgrounds can engage your visitors and lead to a boost in engagement overall, as well as help increase the average time spent on-site by visitors.

You could add some fun waves to the end of the screen, so that the particles appear to emerge from the waves, leading to a bubbly effect!

It's a very cool background overall! If you'd like to try this out, you can find full examples in Isotope UI's background pack.

3. Patterns

Patterns can be a fantastic way to add a splash of color to any site. You could use these in so many types of projects and lots of places, from landing heros to website banners and so much more.

I'd recommend the Pattern Pad tool for generating amazing, repeating patterns! You'll find an example pattern below generated using the web app. If you'd like to create random variations, just click on the pattern image to generate another. When you've found a background you'd like to use and download, just export it as an SVG and paste it into your site!

4. SVG Triangle

SVG triangles are another super popular section divider! You may have seen this type of page divider in popular websites, such as Stripe's landing page. They look glorious when combined with other backgrounds such as mesh gradients or animated particle backgrounds.

You'll find an example of a mesh gradient below, along with a triangle divider. You can recreate this effect by creating a CSS mesh gradient, and then adding an SVG triangle underneath. Lots of these are available in Isotope UI's background pack, too, as well as full examples you can make use of!
