I'm building a web application that revolves mostly around a grid, a treeview, and a toolbar. There is also an autocomplete section at the top of the site.
Since I have never been trained in website design, and am mostly self taught, what would you recommend I do to make this look nicer? Do you know of any similar sites that I could imitate?
The primary issue for me is what do I do with the toolbar & the content below it?
How should I style/treat the search box at the top?
Should I add a menu above the toolbar containing pretty much the same stuff the bar has?
What else do you recommend?
