12 Stylish Monochrome Sliders

by Brenda Barron on January 7, 2019

Want to see some beautiful monochrome sliders? Sometimes it’s best to keep your website’s color palette simple. Single tones and shades of gray can look stylish while not overloading your visitors with garish colors.

  • Neutral color palettes on websites are more professional and relaxing
  • Black and white can instantly make your site look more vintage or elegant
  • Colors can be distracting from the content of your slider’s photos

Want to see some examples of this concept executed perfectly with sliders? Here are just a few examples of monochrome sliders!
