How long does it take you to make the layout of your site? Actually, I found a way to do it quite quickly: using Webflow's prefabricated layouts. How does it work?

Why do we need a prefabricated Webflow layout?

Webflow is very professional. That's why, thanks to this platform, you can create all kinds of websites: from the most classic to the most design. You may think that it is difficult to handle. But no, this is not the case.

Without having to code, you can create very complex sites! What more can you ask for? So I repeat: Webflow is suitable for beginner web designers. Besides, it is precisely for beginners that the prefabricated layouts of Webflow have been set up (this does not mean that professionals cannot use it).

There is a YouTube video in which I describe this at the bottom of the article. Support me by subscribing to the YouTube channel "Happy Desk Design".

You are not registered yet, and yet, you are very interested in everything it offers? I advise you to register on Webflow:) You won't regret it. Moreover, I give you daily advices to get better and better on this platform. Even better, I offer a Webflow training.

How do Webflow's pre-made layouts work?

It is not a ready-made site. It is the elements that make up the site that are prefabricated, that is to say: image galleries, navigation menus and any other section... You only need to choose the sections you want to put on your site, and drag them onto the page concerned. All that's left to do is to customize all these elements according to the desired design.

To do so, you will have to go to the sidebar on the left. Then click on add (the plus button). You can choose between :

  • add items
  • add symbols
  • add layouts

In this article, we will focus in particular on layouts. It contains different elements (everything you will eventually need to create a complete site: navigation menu, hero, galleries, testimonials, call to action...).

As you may have noticed, there is no need to use codes. The drag and drop function will be the most used. However, once everything is finished, an export of the codes is possible. They were generated automatically by Webflow when the page was modified.

Creating a Webflow website from prefabricated layouts is very easy and convenient! If beginners use it to make their first step in Webflow, professionals are used to use it to make website layouts quickly. However, these layouts are somewhat restrictive. In some cases, you won't be able to modify some elements (their size for example).
