Top 5 FREE & Best WordPress Themes 2021

I’ve personally installed and tested a TON of free WordPress themes since I first started and these 5 are the BEST of the BEST for 2021! I rated these themes based on ease of use, clean design, and customization to help you select the one that will most fit your needs! However, I highly recommend going with a paid theme if you want to get serious with your website. You have A LOT more customization options and preset options to help you design some insane stuff. Hope you enjoy the Themeprobably!

    Top 5 FREE & Best WordPress Themes

    1. Hestia Theme

    Hestia Theme

    the top five free themes are called Hestia Hestia is fantastic I’ve actually used it for other tutorials on my
    channel like about how to make a website from scratch so if you want to learn that I will also put a link in the
    description to that Themeprobably but anyway Hestia is awesome it’s super clean design very easy to edit super beginner-friendly just look at it I mean it even supports WooCommerce which is pretty


    cool and if you go all the way down so you get team clients Themeprobably to the
    newsletter and this one will ask you to install a few companion plugins and companion plugins basically just add these cool sections to your website that would not normally be there when you first, get the theme and you also have a contact form which looks great Hestia is super easy to use so you actually, just have to click on the
    pencil icon and you can edit any section you can change the text you can change backgrounds you can even change the accent color so whenever you change the accent color it’ll change this action button here as well as the colors down here for the contact page so it’s just made for beginners and in my how to make a website from a scratch tutorial I show you a couple of little hacks where you can put an image here that’s actually clickable and it’ll take you to whatever the link that you provide and it’s a one
    page design so if you just click on one of these sections like this it’ll just take you to that section so let’s do

    2. Ocean WP Theme

    Ocean WP Theme

    at number two we’ve got ocean WP this isone of my favorite themes I actually useit for my ecommerce tutorial where Ishow you how to create an online storecompletely from scratch and if you dowant to check out that video I will alsoput that in a link in the descriptionbut ocean WP is fantastic it’s got fullcustomization and I actually only useocean WP for the header and possibly thefooter and I can change all the colorsthe text and so onit’s 100% customizable and what I do isuse a page builder called element or anelement or is a front-end page builderwhere you can just drag and drop thesedifferent

    widgets and create a whole website just section by section it is fantastic highly recommend it you can change text colors images buttons add buttons allover the place if you want its fantastic did I say it’s fantastic it’s fantastic and with Elementor you can also get preset templates that other users are creating and putting on line and you can drag those in and then you can just kind of rearrange drag and drop the way that you want I would give this one ease-of-use about a 7 because yes beginners can learn it but it might take a little bit of time to work out and I would give this one a 10 for clean design and I would give it a 10 for customization because endless opportunities with a page builder so if you’re going to get ocean WP you need to get Elementor so if you go to your WordPress dashboard and search for new plugins you can just search Elementor

    5. Shapely Theme

    Shapely Theme

    coming in at number five we’ve gotshapely shapely is an awesome themesuper clean design I love this it’s gotthis parallax effect here I love thesebig dividers it’s very clean you can getright to the information which I reallylike too much clutter can be a bad thingso this theme really gets rid of thatand I also like that there’s multiplebuttons so you’ve got a button forpretty much anything you want to put onhere which is really cool and the menukind of sticks to the top as you can seeup here so that’s pretty cool so Itested all of these themes

    myself andfor Shapley I found that you have a lotof color options actually full colorcontrol over buttons and for your textso that was really cool and it’s alsovery easy to edit all you have to do isjust click on this little pencil iconand it brings you right to this frontpage editor to edit that section now thecon that I found with this theme is thatyou cannot change the font and you alsocannot change the color of your headerso it has to remain white but generallywhite is a good color to stay withbecause when you have obnoxious colorslike purple and blue headers and thingslike that it can get a littleoverwhelming so black and white is agood way to stay I didn’t really mindthat comment at allso with ease of use I’d say it’s aboutat 9 it’s pretty high as well as cleandesign and for customization I’d leaveit around the middle say around a 5overall very beginner friendly theme andI would recommend it to anyone juststarting out
