Top Five Premium Wordpress Themes

Updated on August 14, 2014

Why should you pay for WordPress themes yet there are so many free WordPress themes that you can use on your blog?

One thing I have learned about free things is that most of them aren't really for free. You won't benefit from free things as much as you'll benefit from the ones that you pay for.

When it comes to choosing a WordPress theme for your blog, you might be tempted to choose from the free WordPress themes that are available. But, a free WordPress won't be as beneficial as the one you pay for.

As such, it is advisable to use a premium WordPress theme for your blog especially if your blog is for the purpose of making money online.

However, if you intend to use your blog for the purpose of nurturing your hobby, then choosing a free WordPress theme will ensure that your costs are maintained at minimal.

But, what if you start a blog as hobby only to realize that it has turned out to be a viable business?

Of course, there are some bloggers who started blogging as a hobby and now their blogs have grown to be so authoritative. They're established businesses.

I have come to realize that a business idea comes in many ways. You might start doing something not knowing actually that it is a viable business.

It is usually believed that you get what you pay for. When you need something that is of high-quality, it is important that no chances are taken.

This is the case with WordPress themes. is a unique product that provides solutions for bloggers.

Your blog should have an appearance that is attractive. Readers should not have difficulties reading it. With a paid WordPress theme, you're able to customize the appearance of your blog.

You'll be able to make your blog the way you prefer it to appear since you're able to use a WordPress theme that blends so well with the topic of your blog.

WordPress content management system is so different from other content management systems; perhaps that is why many bloggers are using it.

WordPress content management system provides you with many options including the creation of themes. It is essential that you make no mistakes when choosing an appropriate WordPress theme for your blog.

You don't want to be disappointed with the decision you make a few days or weeks later. To help you, I came up with a list of top five WorPress themes.

Five WorPress Themes

1.) Panic Station WorPress Theme

It is one of the most responsive WordPress themes. It possesses a background support with a beautiful full screen.

Additionally it has slick effects, looks good, and has page transitions. It contains many unique elements that are specifically designed for it.

2.) Weald WorPress Theme

If you want a clean WordPress theme for your blog, this is the best one for you. It is usually a portfolio theme. However, it can also be used for a wide range of other purposes.

Some of its common features include a wide variety of color schemes, a responsive design and a portfolio with many different categories among others.

3.) Braxton WorPress Theme

It is among the WordPress themes that bear the style of a magazine. It is beautiful and it is packed with several features which include an infinite ability to scroll, featured headline, a sidebar and sticky navigation.

In addition, on the category pages, there is a featured slide and a wide variety of colors. Although it is not an appropriate theme for all websites, it would be exemplary for a magazine; you'll recognize this the moment you look at it.

4.) Simplicity WordPress Theme

This is mostly a 3-D theme with a flat design. This aspect gives it an additional kick. This WordPress theme is very similar to what has been used by Google currently. As such, it is the best for your blog if you want to add some sharp shadow effects to the elements in the flat design.

It has a layout with multiple purposes. It is easy to customize this theme and it integrates with the social media fully.

5.) Chariot WordPress Theme

It is one of the greatest WordPress themes for your blog if you like flat designs. It has several amazing features such as a responsive design that is ready for the retina.

It also has a page builder, short code generator and layouts that are boxed and wide. It is simple and minimal. Thus, you'll not experience difficulties with this WordPress theme.


Depending on how you want the appearance of your blog to be and also the topic of your blog, there are many WordPress themes that you can choose from. Some of the free WordPress themes may not bring out the exact look you want for your blog.

Premium WordPress themes will provide you with whatever appearance you desire for your blog. They range from the framework with a sleek theme to an exemplary design that is extremely beautiful.
