We’ve covered the best sites for aesthetic desktop wallpapers. Now, let’s explore some great places for finding 4K wallpapers for that fancy new monitor.

If you read our previous article on what kind of setups our writers have for their home-based offices, you’ll notice that many of us use 4k monitors. And there’s no point in using low-resolution images on such beautiful displays.

    InterfaceLIFT offers stunning wallpaper for widescreen and double-screen computers, as well as mobile devices (Android and iPhone). The site features thousands of great 4K desktop wallpapers.

    The site also automatically detects your display resolution and shows you high-quality wallpapers matching that size. You can change the resolution (and select options for multiple screens) or sort by date, number of downloads, and user rating.

    InterfaceLIFT isn’t a new site; it’s been offering beautiful wallpapers for a long time and has a large online community of people who make system themes, icon packs, and more.

    Its only real drawback is that ads that make the site look busy, drawing your attention away from the wallpaper images.


    Initially, Wallhaven was a project intended to improve or replace the now-defunct Wallbase. It’s known for offering high-resolution wallpapers that are 1080p or above. To use this site, browse the homepage or use the top list, random, and latest buttons to find a wallpaper you like.

    It’s easy to find wallpapers similar to what you’re looking for thanks to the tags feature and Search for Similar options. In fact, here’s a link straight to their 4k tag to get you started.

    When you’ve selected a wallpaper, a Crop & Scale Download feature lets you pick the exact resolution you want or even enter a custom resolution.

    The site has a massive community, an extensive database, and an infinite scroll that lets you view as many wallpapers as you want instead of clicking through several pages to see more options.

    Simple Desktops

    As evidenced by the name, this site offers simple 4K desktop wallpapers with minimal designs, unlike the cluttered offerings on other sites. They appeal to the eye, and it’s easy to find and download the wallpaper you want.

    Simple Desktops is free to use, doesn’t have irritating ads, and offers high-resolution wallpapers, which you can crop to fit smaller displays.

    The wallpapers include text snippets, patterns, or iconographic images, which look attractive without being distracting.

    There are options for mobile devices, plus a Mac desktop app, and each image has some information about the artist who made it, too.

    HD Wallpapers

    This site offers high-definition photos, illustrations, and other wallpapers that you can sort by latest, featured, popular, or browse based on color or category. When you’re ready to download, you can select your resolution (or download for a mobile device or social media platform).

    HD Wallpapers also lets you pick from Available Resolutions on the wallpaper’s download page if you don’t want to download in your native resolution.

    The site is free and offers many 4K, HD, and 8K images, but it’s pretty ad-heavy. The site also makes you wait 10 seconds before a wallpaper is downloaded, so it may slow you down if you’re looking to download multiple wallpapers.


    This site offers a huge amount of 4K desktop wallpapers in categories such as animals, cars, world, and more. The site also detects the display resolution for your desktop device, but you can select a different resolution (or device) when you download an image.

    WallpaperStock is free to use and does feature a lot of ads, but it boasts thousands of free wallpapers that are worth a look. You can also subscribe to RSS updates for wallpaper categories you want, and if you give them your email, you’ll get the week’s top 10 wallpapers delivered straight to your inbox.

    Deviant Art

    DeviantArt offers thousands of original artworks that are hand-painted, hand-drawn, photo-edited, or computer-painted by amateur artists and other members.

    You may be unable to use the search function to check for wallpapers specifically like you can with other sites because Deviant Art’s interface isn’t structured to find them. You’ll find artwork that suits your personal preferences, though, which you can add to your computer as your desktop wallpaper.
