The Top 10 Most Customizable WordPress Themes for 2018
Choosing a WordPress theme is a big deal. Making the decision to create your website on WordPress is the easy part; WordPress has more features and functionality than any other platform out there. It’s no wonder that WordPress powers nearly 30% of all websites. But once you’ve decide to create a WordPress site, then what?
Here’s the usual process: open a bunch of website demos, read a handful of articles (like this one!) about the best themes, find a few styles and ideas you like, and then feel too overwhelmed to make a decision. If this sounds familiar, then choosing a multipurpose theme might be your best bet. They’re designed with multiple website styles and functions in mind, so the possibilities for adaptation and new layouts is, essentially, infinite. With multipurpose themes, you can redesign your website as many (or as few) times as you’d like.
This list has some of the best customizable and multipurpose themes on the market. We’ve included a few of the tried-and-true bestsellers, but also some new and trending themes that were more recently created.
The Most Customizable Themes Available With a Subscription Service
Sometimes, you know exactly what you want in a website; you can create a design quickly, with a specific idea in mind, and then move on to the next project. But it can also be fun to switch things up!
You’re searching for a ‘customizable’ theme, so chances are you’ve got a knack for web design. If you’re interested in playing around with your WordPress site or switching up your theme every few months, consider grabbing a subscription to Envato Elements instead–one annual subscription gives you access to the entire library of WordPress themes and plugins, plus fonts, background patterns, add-ons, stock photos, and more. It’s definitely more of a ‘power-user’ option, but if you’re a designer or you have multiple projects going on at once, it’s a valuable tool.
Here are five particularly standard WordPress themes available on Envato Elements that are super customizable (and some suggested graphics or add-ons to match!)
Tech-oriented and modern, Gullu is a cool multipurpose theme. There are a few designs that are very “2018”, like the use of geometric patterns, blob-like photo cutouts, and bold, sans-serif fonts, reminiscent of forward-thinking websites like the Mailchimp homepage.
Named after a famous font (oh, and a mountain range in Catalunya), Montserrat is a super-customizable theme that has unlimited colors and fonts, SEO-optimization, and advanced page builder capabilities. There’s also Mailchimp integration, Google Maps, video backgrounds–and it’s child theme compatible out of the box, which means endless opportunities for experimentation.
Add to your library: this theme allows upload for custom fonts – perhaps something from our font library of nearly 2,000 fonts from independent designers?
Geared towards creatives, agencies, and portfolios, this website template has an impressive 24 demos, with 100+ content blocks. Start with a one-click import with a site that most closely matches your own vision–from barbershops to restaurants–and customize from there. Also includes theme support!
