The number of options, directions, and aesthetic approaches you can take from simply adding a texture to your design is mind-boggling. Of course, not every design benefits from even the most subtle of textures, but you might be surprised at how a high-resolution texture can bring a design to life.

Knowing when to use a texture and which texture to use all boils down to the flow of the design and the priority of information on the page. It is a good idea to keep certain textures in mind while working on a project, but don’t finalize them until you’ve seen the design as a whole.

Texture selection can be an involved and time-consuming process. First, you have to search for that particular texture your design needs, and secondly, you have to test and tweak it within your design in the hope of discovering the one that actually works.

It is that search process we aim to help you with. What we have for you today is a vast selection of free high-resolution textures that are just shouting out to be used in your next design project.

While it is true that you can use very subtle, unobtrusive textures, you should also keep in mind that some textures can draw the eye more than just a solid color. This means that it’s best to use textures that create contrast and highlight areas of the page that are important.
