The title already reveals everything I’m going to show you today. It’s about two free WordPress themes. Both convince with good performance and even better design.
Warning: If you want to go straight to the important part, I advise you to skip this section. Because today a WordPress course comes to an end and I would like to thank all participants with this post. We’ve accomplished a lot in the last 4 weeks, building WordPress sites, talking about how to market them and laughing a lot. You guys are awesome and I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge with you. I was particularly pleased that you brought me to the two themes in the first place. Thanks very much!
Free WordPress Themes
And now it’s getting serious. After I showed you paid premium themes some time ago, today I’m going to talk about free themes. The big challenge with free themes is the range of functions. The customization options are usually small and bugs make the application complex for beginners. In addition, it is often difficult for beginners to find their way around the huge selection of free themes. That’s why today I’m going to show you two solid themes with a nice minimalistic design. If you also have theme insider tips, please write me a comment.
Cenote by ThemeGrill
The WordPress theme Cenote from the developer ThemeGrill makes the beginning. The theme is kept very simple and minimalistic. Little frills and a simple interface made up of black elements on a white background make the theme an all-rounder. By choosing suitable images, you can quickly and easily put your own stamp on the whole thing. Make sure to choose pictures that speak the same visual language and match in color.
By the way, this is how the Cenote theme looks in the WordPress preview:
The black bar at the top of the screen is particularly advantageous for companies based on their location. Here you can store your contact details directly and encourage your customers to contact you.
Customization options in the backend are limited. Overall, however, the options are more extensive than with many other free themes. The theme is best suited for blogs. If you are planning a shop, I advise against Cenote.
The second theme is actually not a theme, but a web designer named Anders Noren. Thank you Inga for this tip! Anders Noren comes from Stockholm and has a whole repertoire of free WordPress themes. All themes combine the beautifully simple design and the remarkably clean programming. Here you can find all themes from the swedish web designer. Whether you want to create a shop or a blog, Anders Noren has a solution for every WordPress site.
The themes are all simple and allow for a few individual adjustments. A good starting option, especially for the beginning. But even advanced WordPress developers can do something with these themes. If you like taking photos and want to present your pictures in a blog, you should take a look at this theme.
I am very enthusiastic about both themes. In the beginning, it often makes sense to start with fewer options to avoid feature creep. Both variants are mobile responsive. Overall, you really can’t go wrong with these themes. I’m curious if you have any more suggestions, tips and ideas for free themes.
Have fun with the themes and see you soon!
