In this guide, I will list the best WordPress themes for you to consider matching your style. Choosing a perfect WordPress theme can be overwhelming especially for beginners since there are tons of themes out there including free and paid version, scanning all of them is impossible.
One of the common mistakes to avoid is to pick the right theme at the beginning. I made this mistake personally, and it ends up with a compatible issue where I can’t change to another theme and need to start over my whole website from scratch again.
The purpose of this guide is to save your time so that you can quickly get a theme for your website and focus on other important tasks. You may pick any theme that you like from the list, they are all well-coded and fast.
This is the most recent updated review guide. I will be updating the list regularly if I found an additional or better replacement in the future. (Last Updated On: SEP 2021)
5 Tips On How Do I Choose A WordPress Theme
- What is the purpose of your website?
- Are there any features or starter templates that you like from a theme that others don’t have?
- Simplicity is the key, especially if you are beginners. Don’t waste too much time on fancy stuff since they will also slow down your website loading time. You should focus more valuable content on your website rather than the beautiful fancy design with little content.
- If you are going with a free theme, choose one that has a “premium” version so that it can be upgraded later in the long run.
- Go with a popular theme, because it is easier to get free tips from people who have actually used it. Very often, the true support for a theme comes from the community, not the official theme developers.
