Free WordPress Themes: How to Choose the Perfect Theme for You

18 Mar

The volume of free quality themes available for WordPress boggles the mind.

With nearly 3,000 themes available on at the time of writing, we’re certainly spoilt for choice.

However, that choice comes with a dilemma: how to separate the relatively low percentage of high-quality themes from the rest. And, unfortunately, the “rest” aren’t that great.

With that in mind, in this article I want to show you how to separate the WordPress wheat from the chaff, so to speak. We’ll cover every aspect of what you need to consider when choosing a free theme for your WordPress website.

Why Choose a Free WordPress Theme Over Premium Options?

This article is going to focus on how to pick a free theme, but I do want to briefly touch upon the free versus premium debate first, mainly because it gives me an opportunity to link to Raelene Wilson’s excellent article on free WordPress themes.

In short, most free WordPress themes are free for a reason: they’re not as good as their premium counterparts.

However, there is a big overlap between the two. Many free themes are better than lower quality premium offerings, and it could well be that you do not need a premium theme; that a free theme will do the job perfectly well for you.

To hammer my point home, here are a selection of free themes available on right now that I consider top quality:

  • Celebrate
  • Fine
  • Hemingway
  • Ignite
  • Zerif Lite

There’s plenty more where that came from — trust me.

Ultimately it’s up to you, but we’re going to proceed on the assumption that you want to find a free theme for your site and are willing to put a little time into finding the best option for you.
