Black, White, Grey?

I am making a new website and am confused how to design it. Should it have a white background or a black one? I want the images to be done full justice to. - Mathias Soff

There is no correct answer to this question, but your final choice will need to depend on certain factors. Are the captions more readable on a certain colour? Are your photos dominated by dark tones? If so, they may merge with a black background. White backgrounds are subtle, black impactful and grey could also be an interesting in-between choice.



Conventionally, traditionalists may prefer white backgrounds as that’s the colour that one usually prints on.
