If you’re ready to create a color palette for your website, I recommend using the free online color palette generator Coolors. This quick and easy color palette tool will help you create color schemes for your website that will impress your users and make your website stand out from the crowd.

If you want to take a closer look at a specific color in the palette that’s being displayed, click the eye icon at the bottom of the screen. When you do, information about the color will appear for you to take note of.

To save a color in your final palette, just click on the individual color you love to lock it into place and then continue clicking the spacebar until you find the five best colors for your website.

Once you find the color palette you like most, you can do many things. For example, you can bookmark the URL and save the color palette for later. Or, you can sign in to your Coolors account and save the palette alongside others you may have saved in the past.

Lastly, you can click the export icon and export via:

  • CSS
  • ASE

  • Code
  • Embed

For those that just aren’t sure what kind of color palette to create for their website, there’s also the Explore trending palettes button that is sure to jumpstart your creativity and give you a great starting place.
