It’s no surprise that WordPress has the Lion’s share of the blogging software market. It’s an excellent open source, freely available content management system for your website. In fact, I even blogged about this before in a post titled “10 Great Reasons to Use WordPress as a CMS” some time back.
WordPress is awesome!
The WordPress publishing platform allows you access to write, update or delete pages and blog articles through a comprehensive, user-friendly and intuitive administration system. There’s also plenty of community support and tutorials for new users so that anyone with a little spare time can quickly learn to manage their own website and content.
But, there’s a problem.
As a result, there are too many great blogs on the internet to list but many of them use only default WordPress theme designs, which, while very functional, are not really unique in appearance (until heavily customized) which leads to many blogs looking terribly similar.
… and fortunately, a solution.
To solve this problem, webmasters, web designers and site owners often need purchase a commercial (also referred to as premium) WordPress Theme and customise it to make their blog designs more unique and memorable in order to stand out from the crowd.
Fortunately, there are thousands of beautifully crafted, pixel-perfect premium WordPress themes online which have been painstakingly developed by talented designers just ready to be purchased for use on your next project. While many premium themes are phenomenally functional and downright sexy, others are not quite up to standard!
So, to make your search for the perfect new WordPress theme for your blog or website a little easier I’ve compiled a list showcasing my 20 favourite and best rated sources for premium or commercial WordPress themes.
