Simple Google Sheets Aesthetic Tutorial

I've seen so many horrible looking Google Sheets files that I wanted to write this tutorial to give 4 simple tips to make any sheets file look a million times better (only a little bit of exaggeration). It might even steer other people away from wrong numbers and formulas because they're so impressed by the design...

Step 1: Delete the Extra Rows/Columns

This is something that's hard to do in Excel, but super easy in Sheets. Delete the excess cells! It'll make your doc look MUCH CLEANER! And don't worry if you need more cells later, just right click and add to your hearts content. (FYI: most of the floating boxes come up on right click~)

Step 2: Add a TITLE!

Your document should be clearly labelled! It's super easy, just add a row to the top, merge the row horizontally, give it a bigger font, bold it, center it, and invert the colors.

Step 3: Add some color to the headers

Adding some color to the headers will make it stand out. Just don't pick a color that's too garrish...

Step 4: Freeze the top rows

Freezing the rows (or columns) makes it much easier to navigate the document if you have a long file!

Now you can sit back, look at your beautiful new file and compare it to how ugly it once was!

Here is a quick example of a template I made for a collaborative doc I share with clients for some of my freelance work. It is very simple, but also very presentable since you don't want to go overboard! Clients definitely appreciate it because it makes the doc that much more accessible.
