If you're thinking about designing a website, you have a lot of options that will make your website top notch. Your website means your rules. You get to design it, you get to choose the font size, you get to choose the font color, you get to decide what's displayed on each page, etc. Every decision is going to be made by you.

One question a lot of website designers face that you will too is deciding whether to cram pages with text or code in drop down menus instead. It all really depends on what your site is going to be used for. If it's a basic site giving off information then your best bet is to just write out all the pertinent information on the page. No interested home buyer wants to click on link after link to tell them the square footage of the home or how many bedrooms there are. They want all the information lined up already.

However, if you're designing a site about your home inspection service business (for an example), then you might want to consider using drop down menus. Let the most important information be told through the pictures of the inspection reports and buildings, and then use drop down menus to be the place to find out information about the prices.

The main advantage of drop down menus is how much space it creates on the website. If your website is all visual then the more drop down menus the better off your site will be. Drop down menus allow for websites to become organized, appealing on the eyes and limits the content a user has to go through to get to the information they really want.

The more space on a website the cleaner and sharper it will look. You've probably been to a lot of websites in your lifetime. The ones that are just full of text and nothing else can be pretty damaging to the eyes. Nobody wants to spend hours going through a site that's only text and nothing else, unless it's a site with important information you can use for a research paper. Even then though you still need a break.

Drop down menus let the user navigate the site the way they want. If they don't want to continue reading the article they're reading they can always click on one of the other options the drop down menus provide them.

Whether you're designing a website or having one done for you, you're going to want to put a lot of time and effort into figuring out the layout of the site. Your website means your rules. You get to design it, you get to choose the font size, you get to choose the font color, you get to decide what's displayed on each page, etc. Every decision is going to be made by you.
