The Best WordPress Themes for 2018

We are proud to present to you our 5th annual list of the best WordPress Themes in 2018. As you may have noticed, this somehow turned into a tradition here at First Site Guide. The WordPress platform continued to be the most widely used CMS and as such there were many new themes developed for it. There are also old themes that have been revamped and made to look even more amazing.

The good thing to know is that WordPress theme designers and developers have continued to deliver high quality products, both free and paid. Thanks to this, you will be able to find a theme that suits your personal and business needs and goals. You will be able to pick from a variety of themes, ranging from stylish and professional, to simple and clean ones.

We have continued our practice from the previous years and we have categorized WordPress themes into free and paid categories. Below the name of each theme you will be able to see a featured image and links to the theme designer, theme demo and additional theme info.

Additionally, after reviewing and testing each theme we have produced brief but highly informative reports, where we focused on capturing the essence of our experience with each tested theme. In these brief reports you will be able to learn more about the theme’s design, the purpose it is most suitable for and whether it is responsive and customizable.

Since picking a WordPress theme for your website is a choice you will have to stick with for a considerable amount of time, we encourage you to take your time, review the demos we have provided via links, read the descriptions, and consult your developers if you need to make specific customizations.

Without any further ado, here are our WordPress theme top picks for 2018.
