25+ Free WordPress Theme Providers in 2020

Luckily someone landed on your blog and you have an old fashioned, poorly designed static site to present to your reader.

What he will do??

He will leave your site and will never come back. Therefore the design of your site is a foundation for your blog.

This can make or break your blog. Luckily WordPress gives you the opportunity to install themes on your site.

In this way, you can make your site look awesome without digging around with HTML, CSS and PHP.

But, selecting a good theme can be a real problem with literally thousands of themes available for free.

Obviously you can choose a premium theme for your blog if you can afford it. But there are a lot of people (like me) with no money to invest in a blog theme.

For them, selecting a good theme which can suit their needs and better showcase their brand, can be a real headache.

Therefore, I have collected a list of free WordPress themes providers to give you a point of start so that you can go and explore all their themes one-by-one.

Note: I was planning to create a list of best free WordPress themes on the basis of user reviews. But then I came up with the idea to share a list of these providers so that you can go and check and test their themes by yourself.

First, we take a look at what are the necessary check-boxes that you should check before selecting a free theme for your blog.

Code

WordPress is an entire ecosystem, which works around themes and plug-ins. A poorly written theme can harm your site in many ways.

You can do literally everything in WordPress with plug-ins. So a poorly written theme may cause a conflict with one of your main plug-ins too.

WordPress is open-source, so you are free to change the code of your theme in whatever way you want. But a bad theme is also not easy to customize.

To avoid a poorly coded, theme you can test it with your important plug-ins setup. If it doesn’t work with them, consider using a different theme.

Security and Updates

WordPress is changing rapidly (especially Gutenberg). So choosing a theme which had its last update 2 years ago, is not a good choice.

No matter how cool the theme is.

Themes with regular updates and security fixes are less vulnerable to modern security and cyber attacks.

Just choose a theme which is regularly updating and compatible with the latest WordPress version.

Customer Support

Support gets handy when anything goes wrong with your theme or you simply want to tweak code of your theme,

Although, you cannot expect premium support from theme authors for your free theme.

But some support should be available so that you can always fall back to them and get things to fix.

Reviews

This is the most authentic way to check if a theme is good or not.

Take a look at the reviews section of a theme before downloading it. Look what people are saying about the theme.

Take a look at what problems they have described and how support responded to them.

This will give you an overview of quality of the theme.

Also, check no of downloads a theme is getting. Because if a theme is downloaded over thousands of time, then this is an indication that theme is worth using.

Now, let’s take a look at these theme providers who have hundreds of free WordPress themes to offer.
