Often in the WordPress community, you will hear that you should avoid free WordPress themes because of their simplicity and limited support. And to be fair, you cant rely your business on someone’s hobby, that’s exactly why we started WordPress maintenance service with plans starting from $25 monthly.
A lot of theme developers use the community around WordPress.org to publish their free themes on the repository, but also sells pro versions on their sites. This is a great way to generate traffic and customers to your site if they like the free version of course. 🙂
Some free themes are just too good to be free like Sydney and Hestia, but there are also a lot of not so great-looking themes and with dozens published each day it’s hard to keep a track of them. That’s why we’ve spent weeks testing the most used themes in 2020 and made this list. Before we start I just want to say that these themes order is random as we reviewed them, they are not sorted in any way.
From parallax effects to beautiful contact forms, each one of these themes has powerful elements to make you think twice about paying for a theme. Let us know in the comments which ones you’ve tried.
