How to create a Polished excel sheet

Using excel is not a big deal but creating a beautiful sheet out of a plain table is rather a tough job. We are here to show you how to create a beautiful Excel sheet that is presentable in every way and is not sore to your eyes.

  1. Starting with a blank excel sheet.

    First, you will need to open excel, remember we are using the latest office version. You can start with a new blank window from the file menu.

  2. Using One Font and a theme of Colors for your Excel sheet.

    Most people try to make their document look beautiful by adding a lot of colors to their documents, but in most of the case, the documents turn into a funky rainbow style kids comic which does not look professional. So, we choose 3 base colors and use them across the document. In this case, we have selected.
    a. Black/white for the headings.
    b. Blue for the title backgrounds.
    c. Grey for the column background.

  3. Font Weights and Font colors.

    Font should look neat, as you can see in the picture, the font we have used is Poppins and it has 6 weights from Light to Bold. We have used Bold weight for the Headings and Titles and Normal weight for the columns and cells.

  4. Adding Graphics.

    You may also want to add subtle graphics into the excel sheet if you want it to look more professional. Or in some cases, like if you are managing a product inventory, you might also want to add pictures of the products that you are managing.

If you do not want to work it out yourself there are tons of Microsoft Excel templates that are available in the market. You can choose from tons of Microsoft Excel sheet templates that are available and tweak the settings and customize the sheet according to Your Needs. Here are a few examples of the existing templates that are available in the templates for Excel.
