65+ Free Seamless and Tileable Wood Backgrounds for Bloggers and Web Designers

A collection of over 65 free seamless and tileable wood backgrounds for web designers and bloggers.

Most WordPress themes today allow you to insert your own background image and it's a really simple but effective way of changing your site's mood and character.

The easiest way to find free and beautiful images for your background is to use the Creative Commons image search tool.

However, bear in mind that the larger the image file you use, the longer your site will take to load. That's where seamless and tileable backgrounds come in handy. You simply upload the image via the WordPress dashboard > Appearance > Customize tab and make sure you set it to tile both vertically and horizontally and you'll be good to go.

One of my favourite image types are seamless wood backgrounds and I've collected a fair number of them over the years. Today, I decided to package together the better ones and release them here for the greater good.

I've arranged the images into 2 simple packs: one contains dark wood backgrounds and the other contains light wood backgrounds. But you can download both in a single zip file that I've uploaded to my DropBox account.

Please let me know what you think about these tiles and if you decide to use one on your blog or website, post a quick link in the comment section. I love to see what people get up to with my resources!

Hi Will,
Thanks for sharing this. I’m now on planning to modify my site a bit.
It really helps me a lot.

Thank you, again. 🙂


Fantastic set! I have been looking for such tilable backgrounds for such a long time!
Are we allowed to use these in commercial projects by any chance?



I needed something different for my sister-in-laws blog. This was it. Thanks for sharing. I posted your link on my FB fanpage where some fellow bloggers visit.


Hi Will, We are developing a theme to sell on themeforest and we would like to include some repeatable backgrounds.

Are we able to use your repeatable wood backgrounds in the theme?


Loving this collection. Using it for Twitter and soon on my homepage. Thank you!


Thanks for these awesome tiles!
I am using it on this website: rathuser-feld.de
I fits very well because it is the homepage of an allotment club.

Hi and thank you for making these awesome wood tiles freely available. I appreciate your generosity! But…I am a little perplexed as to how to go about activating a download. I’m very happy to give you lots of social media love. Can you walk me through it?
