The 16 Best WordPress Themes You Should Be Using in 2019

When it’s time to pick a platform for your website, it’s important to understand just how crucial this decision is. Sure, there are a lot of choices out there claiming to be the best, but when push comes to shove, the only platform that really delivers time and time again is WordPress. Known for years as the best Content Management System (CMS) out there, WordPress enables your website to run seamlessly in today’s responsive world. And, even better, it gives you the tools you need to completely customize every millimeter of your site, allowing you to craft the ultimate experience for your visitors.

A free, open-source CMS, WordPress is capable of handling any type of site, big or small, blog or eCommerce. Incredibly flexible and agile, WordPress continues to outperform other platforms because it is, by nature, an open-source project. So, not only is the basic WordPress site completely free, but the platform itself is constantly being updated by a community of international superstars who are dedicated to keeping up with the proverbial (albeit digital) Joneses. Constantly tested, you can be confident that when you choose WordPress for your website, you’re tapping into a wealth of knowledge — and an endless supply of support for every bump or hurdle you might face.

A lot of WordPress users get along just fine with the core features, but that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for the basics. The beauty of WordPress is that it makes it simple to add functionality and features wherever you might need them — and it all starts with the theme.

The thousands of WordPress themes currently available allow you to completely customize how your site looks and works, giving you the ability to transform a good website into one that will generate a real buzz. While a lot of these themes are free to use, you’ll find that some do cost money. Thankfully, all of our favorites are refreshingly affordable. Whichever type of website you have, you can be confident that you can find a WordPress theme designed just for you, offering all of the elements you’ve dreamt of — and then some.
