Premium WordPress Themes

While none of us want to pay more than necessary for a WordPress theme, the simple fact is that sometimes free WordPress themes just won’t cut it. Don’t get us wrong – there’s nothing inherently wrong with a free theme – but premium themes often have more unique designs and better feature/customization options.

Because your WordPress site’s theme is its first impression on visitors, it’s worth paying a little more to get the perfect theme that will put your site’s best foot forward.

But…there are thousands of premium themes out there – how can you choose the one that’s just right for your website? Well, we can’t make your decision for you, but we have done a ton of work to make it easier to find the best premium WordPress themes.

On this page, we’ve collected some of our best premium theme roundups, as well as some of our favorite multipurpose premium themes. And if that’s not enough, you can also check out all our latest premium theme content!

To help you make your final decision on a theme, we also recommend that you check out our premium theme buyer’s guide.
