A WordPress Theme is a collection of graphics and code that let you impart your website or a blog a freshly new look. There is a pool of fine WordPress themes on the Internet. WordPress themes are classified by price (free & paid), various categories (like music, arts, business, etc), different layout options, color and features.
You can download a pretty website framework for free. The main advantages of free WordPress Theme galleries – no account registration and fees are required. Navigate through the website, select a theme that fits your needs and download it or copy a template with the right click of the mouse to your computer. The essential shortage of free WordPress Themes is the necessity to put a link leading to the origin. Moreover it runs across the whole website.
Besides, Internet abounds with premium WordPress themes. Most resources require membership subscription. After signing up and creating an account you have to choose between pricing plans. Then you can download any framework to your liking. You might ask yourself why I should pay when there is an overchoice of free design templates. As a rule paid WordPress theme sources offer extra features in addition to elegant and versatile page layouts. You can get fine-tune customization of the chosen framework, premium support from a qualified designer, an ability to add controls to your website. Don’t forget about such an important factor as optimization for search engines. All these features are hardly expected from a free theme.
Now that you know pros and cons of both free and paid WordPress Themes it will be easier for you to make the right choice. And finally I would like to give you a complete list of WP theme collections to help you pick the most suitable design scheme.
