freddo free wordpress theme

free wordpress blog themes

Following my many tests, I see a great trend for 2019: compared to the free wordpress blog themes of 2018, those of 2019 are more qualitative: more intuitive, more complete, more customizable. This is a trend that is a big pleasure, when we know how free themes were so far limited in functionality and possibilities.

In 2019, the free wordpress blog themes will be easier to use: start-up pages and the provision of documentation will guide you step by step in the creation and personalization of your site.
Many free themes will have already pre-filled homepages that you just have to complete in a few clicks.

In 2019, you can build a pro and complete site from free wordpress blog themes. Of course, they will always lack flexibility over Premium themes, they will always be more “formatted” and limiting, but if the need is felt, you will always be able to subscribe later to the pro version of your theme.

2019 free wordpress blog themes are a great solution if you want to build your site alone and at a lower cost. Premium themes are sometimes gas plants and the simplicity of free themes is often a good option to get started and become familiar with how WordPress works.

Lets discover the free wordpress blog themes of 2019 ? First of all, to be safe, read our full tutorial: How to correctly install a WordPress theme?

 1 – Naturelle : 

Naturelle is a perfect free wordpress blog theme if you blog or start an activity around the bio, the ecology, or the natural (who said “Obvious” in the back of the room?). You will not be able to customize it, so it’s best to use it in a proper context (do not create a men’s fashion site with it).

The Llorix One Companion plugin allows you to add sections to the home page (but not re-arrange them): team, services and testimonials, which allows you to build a complete and effective showcase site. To complete your home page, simply go to the personalization tool and modify the blocks one by one. Remember to save your content, because if you change the theme, they will be lost.

Naturelle is compatible with WooCommerce and allows you to create an e-shop.

2 – Hestia : free blog

I like Hestia! The designers were inspired by the Material Design trend to design a modern and striking design! This theme is very good to start on WordPress and it will allow you to set up a professional website and very pretty.

It works with the Themeisle Companion plugins (which allows to activate certain features) and Elementor (to build your pages).
To meet the maximum of needs, Hestia offers different layouts, 3 types of navigation and several widget areas. Plus, you have a huge selection of Google Fonts to customize your fonts.

To build your home page, simply edit the sections directly in the WordPress customization tool. Attention, same as for the Natural theme, you can delete sections but not order them – this lack of flexibility is a shame.

3 – Mesmerize : 

The heart of the selection 2019? It’s Mesmerize!  this theme made me dizzy and if I had to advise only one for beginners on WordPress, it would be this one! Modern, dynamic, its design is rather successful. But it’s mostly in the back office that scores points, because the user experience is great.

What we see first, in a site, is the top of the page. Mesmerize has everything on it: so you can customize the navigation and hero and you can even install preconceived models.

For the content of the home page, once you have installed the Mesmerize Companion plugin you can modify the sections in an ultra intuitive way: all the content is already present, you just have to click on it to replace it. There are also templates of preconceived sections, which you can add in one click to your home page. You can, using a drag and drop, re-arrange the sections to build a tailor-made homepage!

Mesmerize offers a lot of layout options, we approach what a premium theme would offer. It is of excellent quality, complete, intuitive and compatible with WooCommerce.
So he is perfect? And no. To change the colors or typos, there is no choice but to subscribe to the paid offer. So if you do not like the blue and orange of Mesmerize, I advise you (regretfully) to go your way.

I really like the simplicity and elegance of this theme! It will allow you to have, in a few clicks, a minimalist blog, modern and stylish.

15 – Croccante : 

Croccante is a superb One Page dynamic, bold and quality! It is easy to use, the home page is very simple to create since everything is already preconfigured, you just have to replace the texts and images: the default is that it is sorely lacking flexibility: choose this theme only if the sections meet your needs because you can hide them, but not order them differently. In addition you have very few customization options, so opt for Croccante only please as it is presented in the demo.
