How to Pick a Theme That Fits Your Website

by Apr 13, 2016Wordpress Themes0 comments

Your website is your little corner of the vast Internet.

It’s what will represent you and your business, and is what people come to associate you with.

So of course you want the way it is designed to be uniquely…you.

To do this, you need to pick a theme. The theme you pick will help determine the layout and navigation of your site. While some customization can be done, your theme will largely drive the look and feel of your site. Here are 3 tips that can help you pick the perfect theme or child theme so you can create a website that you love.

#1 Look at features

What features do you want for your website? Look at things such as:

  • Headers and footers. How tall are the headers and footers? Are they set up in a way that you like?
  • Columns: How many columns does theme offer? Look at the widths of each as well.
  • Menu: How many menus are there, and how are they laid out? Some themes have one menu on the top and one on the bottom of the header. Your menu will drive the navigation of your site and help visitors get around so it’s important that it’s laid out in a way readers can easily use.
  • Layout: The layout of your site helps determine what you can do with it. For example, if you are planning on featuring ads in your sidebar, you want to make sure there is enough space to do so. If you want to include a banner in your header, the header should be laid out so there is enough room.

While themes can be edited, it’s so much easier when you find a theme that is already set up how you’d like it.

#2 Look at the support

One of the biggest benefits of choosing a paid theme or child theme over something free is that most free themes just don’t offer the same type of support paid options do.  Besides looking at what the theme has to offer, take a look at the type of support they offer. Look at some of the reviews to see what people say about their support team. How responsive are they? How helpful are they?

#3 Look at the cost

Let’s be honest here. For a lot of us, cost does matter. But like many things in life, you get what you pay for. Many premium themes will cost you a little bit of cash, but they are worth it. You should, however, look to see if it is a one-time charge or if it’s is an annual renewal. Also, check if there are any hidden fees.

Picking the right theme for your site will help make your website what you’ve always dreamed of. Start by looking at the features to pick something that closely matches what you’re looking for. You should also pay attention to the level of customer support and costs associated with the theme or child theme. Pick a theme that resonates with you, and create a space online that you love.
