20 Beautiful WordPress Themes For 2014

WordPress is for some years now the predominant blogging platform on the Internet. Even though in 2013 two new amazing blogging platforms have emerged, and I am talking here about Medium and Ghost, WordPress remains the biggest player in the blogging world in 2014, and WordPress themes in 2014 will remain some of the most searched CMS extensions on the web.

WordPress themes have evolved over the years as the content management system itself (WordPress) evolved and matured. Also the new technologies in web designs made WordPress themes better and better. For example almost all modern themes for WordPress are now responsive, almost all have custom theme management admin panels. I remember back in the day where all the changes I made were over FTP.

Most WordPress themes make excellent use of the abundance of jQuery plugins and Google fonts or even locally hosted web fonts. Social media integration and related posts included by default in the theme are also something most themes have on installation.

So what to expect in 2014 in terms of WordPress themes? Well, probably all of the above and more. I for one would like to see theme designers be more and more concerned with speed. Considering Google is taking a website’s speed into consideration in its index, speed should be a priority for any theme designer. That would make a theme complete in my opinion, because, just being awesome looking is not enough any more.

Below there are 20 beautiful recent WordPress themes, both free and premium. Be sure to check out the additional reading section for more WordPress themes.
