Excellent Minimal WordPress Themes

I’ve said it before on this site, a good minimal WordPress theme is often more difficult to code than a complex, flashy one.  In looking at good minimal WordPress themes, I look for clean lines, mostly CSS instead of images, and grid-based or clear organization.  For example, a strong navigation system need not be overly dramatic or layered.  These are some excellent minimal WordPress themes from around the free and premium providers.

  8. Great share dusty, simple theme always converts more traffic into loyal visitors.

    I have used elist from elegant themes, although its an premium theme but managaging website lists is very easy with it.

  9. When looking for a wordpress theme to install, minimal or not; you’ve got to choose a light one especially if you want to get traffic from search engines like google. I like themes that are easy to customize but page load time when installed comes first.

By selecting flashy themes visitors usually leave the site unsatisfactorily. To transform visitors into regular readers, I think WP’s minimal themes is the best choice. I always prefer minimal themes for my website to give my readers easy access to the useful information they need.

  12. Not only do they look better they have faster page load. they are easy to find what your looking for and people like simple sites compared to ones that they have to search around for what they are looking for. I like wikeasi and canvas best out of the ones you listed.

  13. Joe yep, you are right. Some cheap host with 64 mb PHP memory don’t work with big themes.
    I never use a wood theme. I prefer the cheaper type, themeforest as example.
    So, in a big theme my thinking is broken. Easly find myself in a smaller theme.

  14. Canvas is simple and clean looking. I like simple with no clutter so people find what they are looking for. I also agree to much slows site down and to many plugins or apps also do. Most people decide to stay on a site in the first few seconds so simple and easy to read works best.

  15. Such a great and clean looking themes. Canvas is truly looks simple and clean as well as Currents too. I think when your Theme is big enough it will not actually work in such low memory host.

  16. Thanks dusty those are some good themes. I like wikeasi best because it is simple and easy to navigate. very clean lookin and not cluttered.
