Graphic rhyme is the easiest, most reliable and effective way to make website design stylish. 

For example, there is a website and there is logo in the form of a sign inscribed in a circle with a stroke of 2 pixels. A simple solution is to keep the logo motifs repeated in different parts of the site. We make buttons with rounded edges. We make the icons in a circle with a stroke of 2 pixels. Make underscores in the main menu with a thickness of 2 pixels. And so on. 

That is, a graphic rhyme is a similarity of different elements of a site according to some principle. In our example, the principle is this: these are rounded shapes and a 2-pixel stroke. If you repeat this principle, you get a graphic rhyme and get a style.
