Free WordPress Themes – How Good, How Bad?

Why Buy a Premium WordPress theme?

  • Premium WordPress themes are feature rich.
  • Most premium themes bought can be modified/recoded by you.
  • Most paid themes come with the PSD files so that you can change some of the theme images for more personalized look.
  • Most paid themes come with automatic updates. You only need to hit a button in your WordPress dashboard and you are done with installing a theme update.
  • Premium themes get customer support from theme merchants.
  • Since SEO has become more important than ever, the theme developers take utmost care to keep the themes they sell compatible with current SEO standards.
  • Premium themes follow sematic coding of latest web development programs like HTML5, CSS 3, JQuery, etc.  
  • Today’s paid WordPress themes are inherently responsive. So you need not use external plugins to make your site mobile/tablet friendly.
  • Some theme providers allow you to purchase themes under extended license. This means that the so bought theme will not be sold to anyone else.


A noteworthy fact is that though so many features can cost a fortune, premium WordPress themes have become cheaper than ever before due to immense competition. The competition also brings out the best from the developers. So there are hundreds of new and better premium themes being released day in and day out, giving us better choice and safeguarding our site’s uniqueness. Nevertheless, they all come at a cost in the end.

Hope I’ve helped you understand the aspects you need to consider while going for a free WordPress theme.

    Hello there!

    Nice write up you got 🙂

    Now when it comes to free vs paid, I would always suggest paid ones. WordPress (especially) has thousands of free themes but how many of them are coded well? Not many to be honest.

    Worst part, using these free themes could easily lead to security, SEO and website loading speed as well!

    Personally, I would suggest using paid themes anytime of the day!
