I’ve personally installed and tested a lot of free WordPress themes but Neve, Hestia, OceanWP and Astra are simply the best.
Which one is the best of the best this year?
Let’s check them out:
1. NEVE – (free download: http://bit.ly/NeveWPTheme) 🕐 0:01
One of the best free WordPress themes you will ever need is Neve.
An advanced and user-friendly theme packed with starter sites and proven performance.
Think about it as a lightweight chassis on which you can build any WordPress website you can imagine.
Neve is a fully AMP optimized and responsive theme, which will load in mere seconds and adapt perfectly on any viewing device.
While it is lightweight and has a minimalist design, the theme is highly extendable, it has a very well optimized code for SEO, resulting in top rankings in Google search results.
Neve works perfectly with the new Block Editor of WordPress (aka Gutenberg) and with the most popular page builders like Elementor, Brizy, Beaver Builder, Visual Composer, SiteOrigin and Divi.
Neve is also WooCommerce ready, and this is how an online shop looks like when using it. Cool, right?
If you want to create a multilingual site, Neve is RTL & translation ready.
2. HESTIA – (free download: http://bit.ly/HestiaFREE) 🕐 2:16
I love the way Hestia looks and I think it is one of the best free WordPress themes out of the box.
This means you get a professional looking website right after installing it and then you can easily change its settings along with the content through the Customizer.
It is ready for Elementor and other page-builders as well.
Hestia is WooCommerce ready and the way the products look like in the shop section is unique. The shop page looks great too and I also love the way posts are displayed on the blog page.
3. OceanWP – (free download: https://oceanwp.org/) 🕐 4:12
OceanWP is the fastest growing theme for WordPress. It’s the favorite choice of thousands of developers and hobby-users.
There are a lot of options available through the Customizer.
I like that we can change the general styling, settings, page title and so on. Typography options available for each element separately which is really cool, I guess.
4. ASTRA – (free download: https://wpastra.com/) 🕐 5:17
Astra has lots of templates you can import after installing an additional plugin along with the theme. It is ready for Elementor, Beaver Builder, Gutenberg and so on.
Through the customizer of Astra, you can access the usual settings like colors & background, typography, buttons and so on.
Everything is so easy to find.
