One day some designer decided that online stores should look and function a certain way, and apparently everyone agreed with him because it’s a style used by most online retailers.

The magic starts underneath with the imagery which can also be customized as preferred.



If the simplistic approach is more to your liking, then the Photocrati theme could well be worth a shot.

What’s really unique is the ‘recipe shortcode’ functions – making it even easier to feature recipes and dishes prominently.

Okay, so as far as a color palette goes the one featured in Noteworthy may be a little more Halloween-y than we’re used to. On the bright side, the HTML compatibility does make customizing the theme quick and easy, so in terms of font types and colors, it’s an incredibly simple task to undertake. The layout is simply brilliant, in fact, we’re sure that we haven’t seen one like this anywhere else. Just pure brilliance.

The Noteworthy wp Theme


It’s responsive, quick to load and comes jam-packed with an assortment of widget compatibilities and more. Being response definitely has its perks, and we tried the demo exactly as it appears on a mobile device. It was flawless, we have to admit. There is a multitude of layouts and color schemes to choose from too, although this site will never look as good as a news site – it’s much better for showcasing talents/ services.

the vFlex Template


We do! But these aren’t just any balloons. It’s fully responsive and could benefit any event or celebratory website, although it is somewhat lacking in the visual department. If you’re a fan of simplistic style on the other hand, then you’ll clearly be impressed by this template. Thanks to the parallax scrolling, it is a single-pager, but that won’t matter as you can rest assured that the attention will consistently be placed on your event post.


Arcade Basic

Whoever thought to bring back retro clearly had a stroke of genius. We’re not sure if it’s the unique background that defines the Arcade template, or if it is the layout in general – but either way you have to admit just how effective it is. The widgets included are easy to program, and keeping on top of social media is amazingly simple – just look at the top right of that header area.

It’s also responsive and easy to SEO thanks to the built in optimization features.


TA DailyBlog

If there’s one thing that most bloggers aspire to achieve – it’s a fully functional, captivating website that keeps an audience firmly enthralled. Well, that’s what the TA DailyBlog theme was invented for; and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. It’s friendly and easy to navigate, and we really enjoyed the inclusion of an army of social media icons to cater to the most exclusive promotional platform. It’s responsive too, for even more versatility.

TA Dailyblog - Blogging Made Easy


This theme might not be for everyone – in fact, it is actually a little overwhelming if we’re honest, but we’re sure that there are a few particular niches that could stand to benefit from the spacious potential. There’s an expansive logo area up the top with more than enough room for social media icons, and straight underneath you’ll find an attractive visual banner (which can be replaced), and much more below. Genuinely a great theme.

The Splendio Theme


This minimalistic design might seem a little better suited to bloggers and forum hosts, but in reality, it’s just about as customizable as you could ever want from a WordPress template. It has a fully codable slideshow area that can feature images and content without difficulty in loading times, and as the site is naturally responsive, it won’t matter which type of wallpaper you opt for – it will stretch and reform easily.

If you’re looking for an imposing website that can’t help but get a message across – then take a look at the Meeta. We’re not sure what the name means exactly, but we love the concept nonetheless. The striking banner area is a great way to feature a certain piece of artwork, or even to promote a product or service. Thanks to the responsiveness of the theme, all device users will find what they’re looking for.



Okay, so here’s a unique template if ever we saw one. Blog-O-Folio, otherwise known referred to as the BoF, is a stylish theme that would work as either a blog, a portfolio, or both. The home page has plenty of space for aspiring writers to really show their best work, and the inclusion of the photo areas makes it simple to add your own imagery with minimal fuss. Plus, the color scheme is simply brilliant and creative.

The Blog-O-Folio


Although this template would be ideal for promoting, endorsing and selling products, it would also make a fantastic looking biography site, too. ShopStar’s color scheme is well suited to its purpose, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t modify it to suit your own particular brand or style. There are no less than 10 unique spots to display products and notable items of interest, so all that’s left is to add your own goods.

EBUY Theme

Blue Bubble

Are all bubbles blue? In any event, the Blue Bubble theme is as appealing as it is productive. Unlike many of the other templates in this list, this one boasts its very own left side navigation bar. It might be a little difficult to get around the site if the demo is anything to go by – but we’re sure that you have a whole host of categories to stuff that menu bar with, to really enjoy the space.

Blue Bubble


This theme comes with a comfortable 12 demos to choose from – each of which has been customized to tackle a particular industry or niche. If you don’t like the great looking individuals on the first demo, then switching the image out is easy via the upload function, and HTML programmers will also appreciate the ability to code 80% of the elements behind the scenes (such as the fonts, color schemes and so on). All in all, professional.

OShine Bright


Here’s a theme that was made for coders. It’s elegant, simple and boasts a lot of the more traditional elements typically overlooked in this day and age. The left side navigation brings back memories of older style blogs, and the focal point in the center would suit any product or service in need of a little promotion. And who could forget that top intro section? It’s fun and reminiscent at the same time.

BonPress Professional


Photography is one of the niches that isn’t lacking on the template front. Here’s a unique take on the photographic theme, this time in the form of the Shuttershot. It’s fully responsive and loads in a record breaking time, thanks to the behind- the-scenes widgets that compress without any loss of resolution. What’s really lovely is that the wallpaper is free to use but easy to replace as well.

Shuttershot Template


Now here’s a theme that we’re sure that you’ll love – especially if you’re into iconic web designs that emanate style and elegance. The InFocus template features 7 custom widgets that you won’t find anywhere else (each of which can be tailored to suit your specific needs). It also boasts highly dynamic Jquery and Nivo sliders to showcase your latest services or products, as well as easy to implement short codes and much more.

InFocus Theme


Boasting a fully responsive design, over 60 skins to choose from, and an internal form builder (to save having to rely on Wufoo), the Awake theme is much more than a classy template – it’s a canvas where a business can exude professionalism without even trying. The template comes complete with dummy text and sample imagery – all of which can be directly modified via the easy to use control panel. Considering the price and the incredibly dense backend options – this theme is enough to cater to even the most luxurious of businesses.

The Awake


If you’re a fan of the traditional tabloid or magazine layout, then we would definitely recommend turning your attention to the Spectacular template. It functions a lot like a newspaper, with a bold, central header to introduce your audience to your services and features, and below the fold is a whopping amount of space for a gallery, a set of blog posts, or anything else that you can imagine. There’s literally nothing lacking from this masterpiece.


Clean Retina

Who doesn’t enjoy a website that eliminates modern demands for visuals? The Clean Retina is about as fresh as templates come, and we enjoyed this theme for its elegance, ease of navigation and general enjoyment. The navigation may look a little better centered (which is doable in the backend), and the imagery can be replaced without a moment’s hesitation. All that’s needed now is your creative input to manufacture beauty.

Clean Retina


We’re huge fans of blog-oriented websites, and the Great theme just so happens to be one of those. There’s no chaff involved with this theme, in fact there’s simply room for a logo or title, a few spots for your page categories and then a host of images that can be complimented by content. On the right you’ll be able to push a particular sale or product, and just under that is your blog post archive.

  1. Anna Mare

    Am I the only one who hasn’t tried the X theme yet? Everyone at work swears by it but I just hate following suit.

    • Jamie

      Lol I know how you feel Anna. I was pretty much forced to give the template a while go by my manager, and you have to try it to really see why it’s so popular. If you want to break the mold, then maybe go for the BeTheme. It’s just as functional and a little less known, but I know that it’s a go-to for a lot of my friends and co-workers.

      • Anna Mare

        Haha I don’t feel as silly anymore! I have used the BeTheme a couple of times now and it does the job. If it’s a good replacement for the X theme then I’ll stick with it, especially if the features are similar. Thanks Jamie

  2. Chris Cole

    Yeah Jamie is right, both themes are pretty similar but personally I’d still go for the X theme, only because it has a better support team. I rarely need to use them, but sometimes there’s something that I can’t get my head around and they’re always on hand to help. Between the two, X is a little easier to stay on top of in my humble opinion, especially if you’re spending most of your time coding.

    Update! Okay, so I bit the bullet and gave the big X a run for its money. I have to admit defeat lol, it’s pretty darn cool. If anything I noticed that it’s a little more feature packed than I expected. I’ll get the chance to test it on a client’s website over the next few weeks so I’m just playing around with the resources right now, but from what I can see it’s going to be pretty easy to navigate.

    Hi Anna,
    You’ve picked one of the best wp themes such as Nexus & BeTheme etc.
