The Best Free WordPress Templates

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Are you looking for an aesthetically appealing, responsive, fast, and free WordPress template? Today, I’m going to introduce you to my favorite free templates and highlight some of their main strengths.

If you’re new to WordPress and don’t know where to start, I previously discussed the differences between WordPress.org and WordPress.com here which should help you decide which is the right platform for you. After deciding that, indeed, WordPress.org is what you’re looking for, I wrote an article about how to easily install WordPress to your host account. That should get you up and running with the WordPress software. But you’re not done yet. After you’ve read and implemented those two articles, you need to pick a theme that will suit the purpose and style of your website. That’s where this post comes in.

Now it’s time to show you the best free WordPress templates!

Nisarg

Nisarg is one of my favorite templates when it comes to design. This free theme looks clean, features two navigation menus, and a large full-width header to capture your visitors’ attention. It’s well suited for those in creative industries such as photography, art, and design. It is fully responsive and can serve as a multilingual website. The theme is designed using Bootstrap 3, making it mobile and tablet friendly.
