When to Use Stone Textures

From time to time, you would want to employ stone textures into your design especially if you want to produce high-quality and photorealistic designs with a distinct look and feel. Stone textures have characteristics that can be used for a variety of purposes and occasions like the following.

  • On website backgrounds. When you play with its transparency and opacity, this kind of texture is great for backgrounds of webpages as they do not steal the spotlight from the important elements of your personal blog or business website.
  • For 3D modeling. A nice stone wall or pavement created using these textures provides the modern, edgy look that is perfect for 3D modeling or industrial themes which are great in producing high-quality and photorealistic designs.
  • When creating icons. With its ability to blend in the background, stone textures are also great for icons to use as the background for texts and other objects instead of using solid and loud complementary colors.
  • For logos. Just like icons, these stone textures can also be used in creating logos as a background or skin for its elements. They are great for industrial companies like the ones that produce or manufacture construction materials.
  • When creating labels. They are also great for labels especially the one attached to walls or metal casings as they blend well with the background and creates an illusion of being part of it. When used as skins for text, they create a stencil design.
  • On designs that need an oomph. Although they are simple in nature, a little bit of gray and subtle color will give your design a little edge than any plain and solid image just like what these stone textures give. These textures are also creative and original.
  • On designs with texts. Aside from using a solid color for your background that compliments the color of your text, why not use a subtle stone texture to put a quote into a text image that is more sophisticated and trustworthy?
  • For other design practices. These stone textures, along with other textures such as Splatter Textures, can be used as great alternatives to patterns, gradients, and filters. They can be used as an overlay to any image, elements or shapes to achieve the desired effect.

How to Use Stone Textures in Design

While textures have been a trend in design for a long time, its overuse and frequent misuse have left a bad taste and its benefits overlooked. Here are some tips and ways to ensure textures guide the user’s eye and emphasize the key elements instead of being the main focus of your designs.

  • Choose your textures logically. Make sure to choose textures that are relevant and logical to the subject of your design. For example, Aluminum Textures will make a lot of sense when used in websites for industrial companies. It should help build identity, rather than just looking good.
  • Consider what you are trying to achieve. It’s easy to get carried away when using textures but you have to keep in mind the final effect that you want to achieve and make sure that your vision is perfectly executed. Dwelling too long in choosing the right texture will never get you done.
  • Make sure it serves a purpose. Using stone textures for aesthetic purposes may require some more thought before finalizing your design. If it doesn’t improve your design, take it out. Using stone textures for subtlety and nuance sounds like a better plan and a better way to go about it.
  • You should maintain legibility. Avoid going overboard when using stone textures as a background for texts. Although it can be visually captivating, sacrificing legibility over texture is not a way to go if you don’t want your audience to turn away when visiting your site.
  • Never sacrifice quality for loading time. Using textures on your web pages can require some loading time especially when used as backgrounds or other larger elements. Yet, you don’t need to sacrifice the quality of your texture. Repeating texture patterns is a good way to save time.
