Top 6 Free WordPress Themes Everyone Must Try

Choosing a theme may be a little difficult and confusing. Especially when it comes to free WordPress themes because there are so many of them.

Free is good but it doesn’t always mean good. There are tons of horrible free themes and plugins.

But there are some great free WordPress themes and I’m going to share with you my favorite 5 free themes. I tested all of them and they really are great and fast.

What Are Free WordPress Themes?

Free means free. They cost $0. But they have limited customization options. Some themes have more options and some less. If you want more options then you need to buy a pro version.

1. Kadence

Kadence free WordPress themes

Kadence is my favorite free WordPress theme. It has so many customizable options that some premium theme doesn’t have. One of the few free themes that offer header and footer builder.

Kadence is also a very, very fast theme. It is greatly optimized, clean, and modern. You can edit pages and blog layouts, change colors, fonts, archive pages, etc. Just download it and try it yourself. You’ll be amazed.

2. Astra

Astra theme

Talking about free WordPress themes? Then we must talk about Astra. It is a fast, clean, and modern theme. Also, Astra is a very lightweight theme.

It has many great features like a header and footer builder. But is not as customizable as Kadence. Astra has free and premium templates that you can install with one click. They have templates for Gutenberg, Elementor, Brizy, and Beaver Builder.

3. Blocksy

Blocksy is an amazing free WordPress theme with amazing features and customization options. It is very similar to the Kadence theme. It comes with beautiful free templates.

This theme works great with page builders like Gutenberg and Elementor. It is very customizable and you can change the layout, colors, fonts, and many settings. Highly recommended theme.

4. OceanWP

OceanWP free

Another great free theme is OceanWP which is developed by one guy. It is fast, modern and one of the most customizable free themes you can find.

It also comes with some templates but not as many as Astra. I used it on a couple of websites and it works very well. Works great with Elementor. But it needs a major update because it looks a bit old.

5. Neve


Neve is a very clean, fast, ad modern theme. It is made by ThemeIsle which has another good theme like Hestia. You can customize the layout, blog, header, footer, colors, and more.

It also comes with great free and paid templates. They have a very good design team that builds beautiful templates. Works great with page builders.

6. GeneratePress


And the last free theme on this list is GeneratePress. This is the first free theme I loved and still love to this day. Fast, modern, and clean theme with lots of customization options.

Has a very good structure, design and it is great for blogs. Very simple to use and customize. Great theme for beginners.


As you can see there are many good free WordPress themes you can try. Depending on your website, you can choose one of them and your website will be fast, clean, and modern looking.
