Subtle Patterns is a popular design resource for finding free, lightweight backgrounds to customize your website. Here you will find patterns that are easy on the eyes and tile perfectly to create pleasant backgrounds.
Subtle Background Patterns is a new plugin that lets you incorporate Subtle Patterns into the WordPress background customizer. It allows you to easily add any of 300+ beautiful background patterns to your site, without having to customize your theme’s CSS file.
The best feature of this plugin is the Live Preview of patterns, which allows you to cycle through all patterns on your own website and save the one you want to use. The Live Preview shows up on the frontend of your site so you can see how the background would look with your current design and content.
When you add a pattern as a background, it is added to your WordPress media library. The plugin does not save all of the patterns to your server – only the ones you select for use on your website. If your theme does not have support for WordPress background images, after installing this plugin it will.
Subtle Background Patterns is an especially useful plugin if you have one of the default themes active and simply want to add a little more character to the design. Download Subtle Background Patterns from the WordPress plugin repository to get access to any of the 300+ backgrounds for free.
