Flat design is the total opposite of skeuomorphic design – which may tell you absolutely nothing about either style!
Skeuomorphic design aims at realism in images, using gradients, realistic shadows, texture overlays, etc. Flat design, on the other hand, is minimal in nature, uses no gradients and employs pixel-perfect shadows with no regard to realism.
The advantage of flat website design is its flexibility of use on different screen sizes. A flat design can be scaled up or down with little or no image adjustments for smaller screens. We are now seeing many flat UI resources and website themes available on the internet, so it is a great opportunity to showcase some of the best flat website designs around at the moment.
