WordPress themes are the one which is going to act like the skin of your website. It gives the look and feel you want on your website. As we have already talked in our WordPress vs Static HTML website themes is one of the important power factors of WordPress.

2017's-Best-33-Free-Responsive-WordPress-Themes-For-Startups-&-Beginners

In 2014 total WordPress theme downloaded from wordpress.org in that year alone is 123,498,018. This number would be greater than this in 2017.

Types of WordPress themes

There are two types of WordPress themes available out there one will be totally free, the other with premium support and premium looks for the premium price. There is also another type you may be familiar with “freemium themes”.

Actually speaking it is neither a free theme nor a premium theme, these are good quality coded themes with a restricted use or you can access all the features of the theme within the time constraints given by the theme provider. That is you don’t get the full FREEdom to use it completely in these FREEmium themes. If you are kind of guy who is ready to buy theme after experiencing their features then definitely it suits you

If you are just a beginner and you set out for the WordPress adventure and fascinated to know all the thing by testing you can go for the free WordPress themes.

The reason why I am saying free themes are like adventure type is because not all the WordPress free themes are with good quality coding and with good quality features. It’s like rolling dice on Jumanji board you don’t know when the stampede will come to destroy the website
