Updated: March 12, 2014

As WordPress continues to grow in popularity, more and more designers are realizing the potential of building WordPress themes.   In addition to the financial benefits, designers can also use WordPress themes to create additional inbound links, improve their reputation as a designer, and of course help generate freelance work.

Because of the huge size of the WordPress theme market, it has become increasingly difficult to find a good way to browse through the available WordPress themes.   Unfortunately I don’t have a solution, but I have spent several hours trying to sort through the available themes and create a gallery to display many of the top designs in both the free and premium WordPress theme markets.  Currently this page has over 150 WordPress themes, plus a few known theme clubs thrown in at the bottom for people that prefer that route.

  1. Great list. A lot of old friends, but there are some very smart themes I didn’t know. Thank you very much for digging them out. Maybe you should have a look at the new Elevate-Themes by Nathan Rice (’tough only one yet).

  2. Dev says:

    nice themes and nice work….. lots of themes in a single post its sounds really impressive and you done it.. cool dude.

  3. Jeff Houdyschell says:

    Wow! it looks like you did quite a bit of work to put this list together, great work Kyle!

  4. Gabe Diaz says:

    Great round up of themes, thanks!

  5. Kyle Eslick says:

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, I lost count on time invested after 5-6 hours, but it was worth it if some people find it useful. :)

    Sadly it seems the free WordPress themes market has dwindled drastically in favor of the premium themes, so I had to go on quite the manhunt to locate some of the best free themes!

  6. eilmr says:

    Hey, did you know that you can slice long post such as these into pages in wordpress 2.7?

  7. Markus says:

    Wow. awesome XMAS present ;) I bookmarked a lot of these themes. Thanks a lot for your work

  8. Susan says:

    Wow, what an impressive list of themes!

  9. Gian says:

    Good job making the list! Does it worth to enter a theme-club, especially the ones with 1-year subscription?

  10. Only 140+? Slacker. LOL

    Seriously, nice round up, Kyle. I recognized quite a few, but pleasantly surprised to find some new ones I’ll have to make note of for future reference.

    Merry Christmas, buddy!

  11. Kyle Eslick says:

    @ Eilmr – Yes, I am aware of that feature. :mrgreen:

    @ Gian – Depends on your needs. It is a HUGE moneysaver if you have a bunch of websites/blogs, but if you only have one or two you’ll probably want to purchase them individually.

    The nice thing about theme clubs is that most of them include future themes as well!

    @ Mark – Yes, sorry for slacking this holiday season. I’ll start working on a 200+ theme post here shortly! :)

    Merry Christmas to you as well!

  12. Gian says:

    @kyle

    I agree with your point of view. I was looking to purchase a single theme for $25. Instead, there are many cool themes on ElegantThemes for $20. Thinking on cost/benefit, club themes are great in this point.

  13. KushMoney says:

    Thanks for sharing these themes. I was looking for a new one when I came to this site. Thanks again and merry xmas.

  14. This theme list realy great. Use my parmak izli pdks sistemleri pdks blog. Thanks your article

  15. Bruce > The BIG Desk says:

    One of the best round ups of themes I’ve seen – Thanks.
    I use Plateformate and have to tell you that I’m so thrilled with it that I’m considering his other Premium theme for my second blog.

  16. Deca says:

    I’ve been using some free themes above.

  17. izwan00 says:

    Thanks for the great free premium theme list.

  18. dennyhalim.com says:

    it’ll be so much better if you can put it up in one single zip for easy download.

    tnx

  19. Very nice list, I’ve downloaded a few of them to customize to my needs! :)

    -Daniel

  20. Love Graphics says:

    There are some breath taking themes here, really appreciate you sharing them with us.

  21. Delighted says:

    VERY impressive list, thank you for this resource of free templates..

  22. Muhammad Azhar says:

    best collection

  23. Andrew@ Audit Software says:

    Wow…really great list of themes. I liked a lot Vintage Theme. Very fresh design. Also interesting to see Emporium e-shop theme here. I liked it a lot. Great post.

  24. SAMRAT KAFLE says:

    great thanks for sharing with smile

  25. deme says:
