Webarro offers two primary website layout styles for its customers to choose from- Full Width and Boxed Layout. If you are familiar with the Bleed and Non-Bleed layout formats commonly used in the print industry, this one’s easy to understand. However, if these terms sounds new or if you are creating your website for the first time, here’s explaining the two most prevalent web layouts, along with its pros and cons, to help you make a well informed decision.
In simple language, boxed website layout is like having a border on all the four sides of a page. Though this may sound very simple, there’s more to it in technical terms. Boxed layout sets clearly defined boundaries for the main body of the website, within which the website content and information will be displayed, irrespective of the screen resolution. The space outside the boundaries can be used for adding custom background colours or images to the page body. Businesses offering seasonal products, especially apparel and fashion brands, often use this space outside the margin to bring out the seasons feel to the website, by adding season related images and patterns. Many other brands who relate the colour white to elegance, often leave this space untouched, to make it look both trendy and elegant.
Here are a few boxed layout websites, developed by Webarro.
Full Width Layout
As the name suggests, the Full Width Layout website design uses the entire space on the page, to showcase the website content. Just like the background colours and artwork extend to the edge of a paper in Bleed Printing, the background colours and images in the main website body extends to the edge of the page, in full width layout. This ensures effective and best use of the available space, as developers can place images and content anywhere in the web page, while ensuring that it leaves enough space from the page borders, in order to avoid readability issues.

What layout design suits your website depends primarily on the purpose, look & feel and the brand connect. Many online stores like Uptown Girls, Top Shop, Tony Bianco, and various others combine the better of the two to have the website header and footer in full-width with the background colours bleeding to the edges, while restricting the body content to the middle, leaving ample white space both on the left and the right, resembling that of a border. Technically speaking, this too comes under full-with layout.
