In order for your website to possess a professional look you should use one particular theme throughout your website. This means that you should use not just the same colors but also the same shade of colors throughout, the same font throughout, and the same type of icons throughout your site, among other things. Let’s focus on this last aspect for the time being. There is no doubt that you will need icons in one form or another to use on your site. In the least you will need social media icons to link to your social media profiles. But it is recommended that you download and save a large package of social media icons of the same set for future requirements. It could be that you need a new icon in the future when, say, you decide to have an RSS subscription enabled for your site. Of course you can download and use a new icon for RSS but that would look odd and out of order with your old icons’ set.
Another problem that you need to be aware of while using icons is that of pixelization or blurring. Some people prefer to use large icons while some others like small ones. So you might not use the icons just as they were when downloaded, you may want to increase or decrease their size. Vectors will help you here because vector images never get blurred on size changes.
