Hemingway Theme

Top 6 Free WordPress Themes for April 2014

WordPress is a wonderful platform for bloggers with its free content management system. By focusing on the style and design of the site, I’ve found that you can increase traffic to a great extent. Choosing a good theme is therefore vital and is an important step you should do with care. These themes make your website user-friendly and increase the visitors and retain them.

There are numerous themes available for free, making it difficult to choose the perfect one for your site. I’ve come up with the cream of the themes present. One beneficial factor that stands out in all the recent themes is they are all responsive. Here are my top 6 WordPress themes for April 2014.

1. Hemingway

Hemingway Theme

This theme specializes in large images that dominate powerfully. Developed by Anders Noren, I favour this theme as it is a clean, wonderfully designed, and responsive two column theme. Made especially for bloggers, the theme has a huge header, prominent typography, and easy customization options. You can include accents with the colors of your choice, add images and alter them in whatever way you want. The theme has four basic post formats namely standard, quote, video, and aside. Highly responsive and best suited for screens with high resolution, it has custom header and background, and is translation ready. It also comes with GPL license.


2. Vantage

 Vantage Theme

This is a favourite multipurpose versatile theme I like that comes with tight integration features. It has potent plugins like:

  • Page builder for responsive design creation
  • Meta slider for excellent slides
  • WooCommerce to set up online shop

This theme is apt for portfolio, business, and online store creation. There are free as well as premium support options to choose from.


3. Virtue

 Virtue Theme

[button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Live Demo” href=”http://wp-themes.com/virtue?TB_iframe=true&width=600&height=400″]           [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Download” href=”https://wordpress.org/themes/download/virtue.2.1.3.zip”]

This is a highly versatile theme. I love the several options you get to play within this theme. Easy customization, great features, and modern designs are its strong points. The designs use html5 and css3. The responsive design is supported by Bootstrap. The theme is also ecommerce ready, making it easy to set up your online store in a jiffy. The powerful options help in preparing home layout, custom fonts, sliders, and customization easily without writing any CSS. This is designed by Kadence Themes.


4. Spacious

 Spacious Theme

 [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Live Demo” href=”http://wp-themes.com/spacious?TB_iframe=true&width=600&height=400″]           [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Download” href=”https://wordpress.org/themes/download/spacious.1.0.4.zip”]

This is a free responsive theme that can be used for various purposes. I’d suggest this as the perfect theme for business sites that have multiple theme options like portfolio, blog, and other styles. The features include:

  • Responsive theme
  • Slider to slider fluid image passage
  • Apt call to action feature
  • 4 post layouts
  • 6 templates and many other favourable features



 POINT theme

 [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Live Demo” href=”http://demo.mythemeshop.com/s/?theme=Point”]           [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Download” href=”https://mythemeshop.com/go/signup/index/c/point”]

This is a multipurpose WordPress theme that I like, which is highly flexible and also has premium functionality. There are advanced options and multiple site layouts, colour schemes, backgrounds, and control specific features to choose from. SEO optimization, custom widgets, translation ready, and related posts are some of the important features available in this theme. This site is 100% free to download and use. Unlimited domain use, lifetime free updates and support, options panel, and documentation are some of the features you get with this theme.


6. Dazzling


Dazzling Theme

 [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Live Demo” href=”http://wp-themes.com/dazzling?TB_iframe=true&width=897&height=543″]           [button size=”small” type=”primary” value=”Download” href=”http://wordpress.org/themes/download/dazzling.1.1.zip”]

I’ve chosen this theme because of its modern and responsive design theme for WordPress that is appropriate for blogs as well as static websites. Travel, personal, portfolio, corporate, and creative sites can use this theme. The options include colour selection, slider, several widgets, call to action button, and many more. Built with Bootstrap 3, this features infinite scroll, logo support, SEO friendly features, social media icons, translation read, and post widgets. This is a best free WordPress theme.

I’ve found that switching themes to bring about a change in functionality and appearance is a good way to give your site the boost it lacks. The above themes help in this aspect perfectly. There are plenty of other free themes out there, and if budget is not an issue with you, I’d suggest looking into the premium themes too, which offer better choices.
