#2 Simply Pro

Simply Pro

My next recommendation is Simply Pro theme from StudioPress which is a Child theme for Genesis framework. It comes with very simple, lightweight, to-the-point, and elegant UI, and is extremely cool in looks.

#3 No Sidebar Pro

No Sidebar Pro

This particular theme is used on my personal travel blog where I share lots of images and stories. The theme focuses primarily on images, video, and text, i.e., the content. It doesn’t hold any single stupid thing and works like a charm on any device. The options offered at the back-end are minimum but the whole layout is good enough to handle the clean and minimal requirement for anyone. The homepage is customizable using widgets and few options offered by the Genesis framework.

You can get it for $59 from ThemeForest with six months of support.
