One sure fire way to make a bold and impressive impact with your website is the use of large backgrounds.  As computer monitors transition from 19 and 21 inches to even larger wide screen monitors, it seems like more websites are being designed with over-sized photo or illustrated image as the preferred background.   The result can be a stunning visual effect that adds more life and depth to your design compared to the traditional tiled background graphic.

These add up an interesting appeal to the website. It also adds up visual interest and attracts the eye of the viewer. However be sure to use it right. Some designs are totally screwed up because of this; hence this trend is used only because it is trendy at the moment. Big background pictures can be used when the website refers to a certain domain or theme, while it might be totally unsuitable for other websites. To give you some inspiration, here are 40 examples of web sites that that have successfully used big background pictures. Enjoy!
