WordPress is such an amazing blogging platform. There are thousands of free and paid WordPress themes available for the taking. Sometimes, you might come across a blog and wonder how the owner got it to look so good. Well, you’re definitely in the right place because this post was made specifically for you. It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your exact position, wondering how to make my WordPress look good! Just know that you don’t have to be amazing at coding to make your website professional and attractive. In fact, there are so many ways you can make your blog presentable without any knowledge of coding at all! That is why I created this list of some of the best websites to find your own WordPress themes. I’ve also included an amazing WordPress framework which essentially is the foundation to creating your very own child theme.
Themeforest is the best place to find themes for your WordPress. There are even themes if you wish to set up an e-commerce store using the WordPress platform. All you need to do is click “install theme” and you have a professional looking blog in under a minute. If you’re a blogger, business, school, or you just want your own personal website, Themeforest is your go-to site. WordPress themes found on Themeforest are beautiful and of high quality. You don’t need to be a professional programmer to install these themes. Simply a basic understanding of how to install one (which is super easy). The price of some of the best themes are affordable and many times you get more than what you paid for (in my humble opinion). So go ahead and search for a WordPress theme in the forest–Themeforest that is!
2. Woo Themes
Woo Themes is another great site for some amazing WordPress themes. Starting an online magazine? They have a theme for that. Restaurant Owner? Check. Want to sell products online? Check. Take a look around on Woo Themes for a theme suited specifically for your needs.
3. StudioPress Genesis Framework
The best WordPress framework is the Genesis framework. The Genesis framework is essentially a foundation theme for your WordPress blog and allows you to create your own WordPress child themes based on the Genesis framework. It is what I’m currently using for my blog. Genesis has allowed me to easily modify and create my own personal child theme suited to the look and feel I want for my blog (compared to the theme straight out-of-the-box). Many of your favorite blogs use the genesis framework because it’s not only aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also optimized for SEO (search engine optimization) which is essential to any healthy, active blog.
Google is not so much a place to download themes, but a place to find websites that have many free themes all in one place. I wouldn’t have found of some of these amazing themes I know and love without the help of Google. A simple search such as “free WordPress themes” should be sufficient enough to find them. There are millions of websites that google will direct you too. Go ahead and explore the many amazing websites on the web for free WordPress themes. In no time, you will find your match!
