No wonder why it is one of the best picks on the WordPress theme repository. GeneratePress is a powerful theme that focuses on performance. It is the fastest and best theme at the moment. Its flexibility makes it even better for site owners. Whatever niche you’re opting for, GeneratePress has it for you. You can build your own portfolio site, eCommerce, or business site. On top of that, it is free to use. However, if you want more extensive features, GeneratePress also has a premium version you can purchase.
- Yearly – $59 with all premium features and full access to the site library.
- Lifetime – $249 which includes everything on the Yearly plan. One time payment.
We highly recommend trying the free version first before upgrading to the premium plan. If the free plan is lacking, then go for the one-time payment plan. It can be costly, but you are having the product all by yourself, forever! Plus, GeneratePress also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Morikami.org can be a source of inspiration if you’re thinking of launching or already running an arts and culture website.
Florida’s Morikami museum is a space that presents the Japanese culture through educational programs and first-hand experiences with traditional teahouses and iconic Japanese gardens.
The website’s homepage is informative and it puts all the information visitors might need at their fingertips. So, you won’t have to dig deep to find out the museum’s work hours or buy a ticket for one of its programs.
3. Ede Gitarre
If my high school German hasn’t failed me, I believe Ede Gitarre is a website for a guitar teacher.
It’s got a great look, with GeneratePress for the base theme and Elementor stacked on top for page building functionality.
We especially like the big centered logo with the jagged line running across.
Skybridge delivers “technology to create better communities”. Looking at the website, it looks pretty great!
We love the big fat slider options (at the bottom of the screen). That slider is powered by Revolution Slider, and then the rest of the page is built with WPBakery Page Builder..
5. Skulls Online
Skulls Online is on the peculiar side. It is a website that sells, well…skull products.
That’s a product niche we never even knew existed. But it appears to work well because the site looks great!
There doesn’t appear to be any page builder powering this one, but the store runs on WooCommerce.
6. Acme Finishing
Acme Finishing is a liquid and powder finishing company that runs on GeneratePress.
The slider at the top is powered by Revolution Slider, and the rest of the site uses WPBakery Page Builder for the designs.
7. Big Wheels
Big Wheels is a car festival in Finland with a bit of a more classic look. It’s a great example of how you can use GeneratePress for a huge range of website styles.
There’s no page builder stacked on this one – just GeneratePress.
Skymania is a useful source for all space and astronomy-related topics. The site has a two-color pattern with centrally positioned navigation menus and a search bar at the top of the homepage. Its minimalist design is a perfect reminder that you don’t have to use GeneratePress to create a complex website with animated headers and logo carousels because simplicity works.
Vergleich is a German comparison site built on GeneratePress. It’s got a unique style/approach compared to the other themes because the homepage is designed to throw people straight into the big search box. Again – a great example of how flexible GeneratePress is.
We don’t see any page builders here. The rest of the homepage design seems to be built using GeneratePress Premium functionality, like sections.
10. Rapid’s Resort
Todd & Barbs Rapids Resort has a bit of a classic feel, and honestly, it fits the aesthetic the resort is going for.
The resort is also using GeneratePress sections to power the content underneath the large header, as well as Revolution Slider and Tom Usborne’s Lightweight Grid Columns plugin (Tom is the developer behind GeneratePress).
11. De Hofmeester
De Hofmeester is a Dutch catering service with a bunch of delicious-looking food pictures on their GeneratePress-powered website.
Beyond GeneratePress, De Hofmeester uses Elementor to power most of the other designs, with the top slider using Smart Slider 3, rather than Elementor’s slider.
The end result looks pretty great!
12. The Healthy Apron
Fast site load speed and innovative use of a landing page are some of the things you’ll notice when you first visit The Healthy Apron. The blog’s homepage is a landing page made with Thrive Architect.
Interestingly, the site doesn’t have a homepage navigation menu and you must scroll down the homepage to find the latest posts or popular topic categories. Despite this, The Healthy Apron provides exceptional user experience in a saturated niche.
13. Fem Escola A Barcelona
Another Spanish site is up on our list. Fem Escola A Barcelona is a bit more of a content site with spots for blog posts, the latest comments, and more.
There’s nothing too complicated, but we like the color scheme.
14. Environment Leader
Although it isn’t a one-page website, environmentalleader.com has a long homepage filled with authoritative content about environmental issues.
The homepage’s header features links to open calls and content category menus that cover everything from air pollution to sustainable manufacturing.
The site’s design sticks to the GeneratePress’ basic layout, so you won’t see a unique color pattern or awe-inspiring header videos. However, this doesn’t change the fact that the blog is easy to navigate and functional.
15. Phoenix Lifestyle Support Association
Phoenix Lifestyle Support Association combines GeneratePress with the free SiteOrigin Page Builder for their site.
Again, there’s nothing too complicated about this site, but we appreciate the nice simple design and feel that it fits their services.
16. Půjčovna Lodi
We honestly think that this one is about rafting in the Czech Republic. Our Czech isn’t too hot, but Půjčovna Lodi looks great! We love how the big logo faded out on the map at the bottom.
17. Proventure Consulting
The sticky transparent header on this one works great.
18. CCNY Tech
CCNY Tech has an eye-catching site built on a combo of GeneratePress and Beaver Builder.
While we’ve seen plenty of Elementor and WPBakery Page Builder designs, this is the first time Beaver Builder has made an entrance.
Although its content could use some freshening up, Woorkup is still a valuable source of information about website management and digital marketing.
The blog’s homepage is essentially a list of its most popular articles along with a header with links to the site’s pillar pages. Woorkup is built with the GeneratePress premium version but the site has only basic functionalities.
Hence, it’s a perfect example of what you can accomplish with GeneratePress even if you don’t have advanced web design skills.
20. Michael Joyce Upholstery
Michael Joyce Upholstery uses GeneratePress as a one-page theme for his site. The different sections in the one-page design are all powered by Elementor.
21. Ashland Ohio Balloonfest
We didn’t know there was such a thing as a balloon fest, but now we’ve been enlightened. Ashland Ohio Balloonfest not only does Balloonfest exist, but it also uses Elementor to power its site!
The blog makes the most of the GeneratePress theme by following its recognizable layout. Its homepage is dominated by the content carousel that highlights the blog’s latest articles about topics relevant to its niche.
Sleepopolis focuses primarily on mattress reviews and comparisons, but it also offers a wealth of information about the science of sleep. The blog also does an excellent job of establishing authority by using team member boxes on multiple pages.
23. Love Limpopo
Love Limpopo is “an epic South African love story” built with GeneratePress and Elementor.
Make sure to check out the whole homepage as there are some really nice effects as you scroll down the page.
On a technical front, BhambraBland uses Elementor in conjunction with GeneratePress to power its design.
25. 12 Minute Athlete
Aside from the custom colors, there’s not much else that indicates that the 12 Minute Athlete website was created with the premium version of the GeneratePress theme.
The homepage header uses the image carousel to inform the visitor what the website is about, offer a fitness app and promote the site owner’s book. Also, you can find additional information about the website’s founder and her latest articles while scrolling down the homepage.
