Why I use WordPress to design Websites:
Though WordPress themes tend to be custom designed for a single type of business, sometimes, there are themes that work so well for a range of projects (we call them multipurpose themes) that really manage to stand out from the crowd.
We have collected a list of those themes that have had an impact of the way we design, we hope that these can also be useful to you. Eeven if you are not developing yoiur website yourself, maybe is a good idea to ask your developer to use one of the following given their good design and ease of use. After all, wouldn’t you like to take control of all aspects of your own business? (Or at least understand what your webmaster is saying!)
This one is certainly a big player, with a custom page builder you’ll find yourself only limited by your imagination, without noticing you’ll be able to create entire pages within minutes! Divi it’s not only well designed, it is elegant and works extremely well for any portfolio, shop or business website out there.
Unlike the other themes mentioned in this post, Divi is developed from elegant themes which offers an unique option when purchasing themes. Unlike any product bought on themeforest, once you purchase the standard $69 license from elegant themes, you will have access to all their themes, you will bge able to install these on ANY number of websites
and receive support for an entire year (while themeforest offers just one theme, which you can only install on a single website, for an average $60). Furthermore, if you pay for the lifetime liscence on elegant themes, you will receive support and be able to use all themes for an unlimited time! A real good deal if you want to take your WordPress development seriously.
This multipurpose theme is one of my favorites, with a beautiful esthetic design (what can I say Im a fool for pretty things) and a very straight-forward visual builder you will find yourself creating stunning and professional websites in no-time.
With a big list of shorcodes (and a very effective shortcode builder) Salient can manage a wide range of added functionality and visual elements. Another great advantage of this theme is the huge availability of fonts (about 72 choices actually) which is a precious resource for any designer.
Whether a portfolio, photographers, designers or any business website looking for an edge (I myself use this theme for my personal online portfolio) Salient is sure to impress your site’s visitors.
Though I left this one for last (and for no other reason than the fact I haven’t had the chance to use it yet) I had to mention it because of the huge impact it has had on the Word-press community. Since it’s introduction at the beginning of 2014, this theme by theme.co has pretty much conquered the hearts of millions of developers.
Described as one of the most versatile themes out-there (it includes an amazing 80 page templates) providing, even to those who aren’t comfortable coding, an amazing arrange of predefined options. That said, possibly the best feature of the theme (not counting it’s beautiful design, easy to use visual builder and great range of free extensions: mailchimp, Facebook comments and a short-code builder just to name a few ) is their support, they will
Regardless of the type of business you have or the style of website you like, all of the above are adaptable, efficient, well designed, able to be adapted into a e-commerce website and offer strong support from a dedicated team of developers (always a mayor quality that makes a useful theme). If you are struggling to find a specific theme that exactly matches your expectations and needs, then going with any of the above is your best choice!
