17 Sep 7 Creative Under Construction/Coming Soon WordPress Themes
In today’s post, we will look at some of the most professional and creative coming soon/under construction themes on offer. A few years ago when launching a site, I would do all the behind the scene work with my site down. I then learn from the lean startup model where you create a put out a minimum viable product. In this case, it can be a simple landing page where you can collect visitors email to notify them of your launch. With these themes that I have recommended you should be able also to promote you social media profile or tease visitors with an early bird offering. You can also use these templates in the case you are doing some maintenance work on your site and want visitors to be kept updated.

Although you don’t get a ton of customization options to change the appearance of the template it remains a great option to consider. Launcher is 100% responsive and comes ready with a launch countdown timer. You also get an email subscriptions box to help grow your mailing list so you can launch your business with a bag. Dis I mention this template is free?
Mycountdown is an interesting coming template soon, but I am pretty sure that this one will not be for everyone. You get the big laboratory style countdown time that takes up more than half the page. Honestly, I am a fan of this theme simply because it does leave you with some room to add a sales copy. If you just want a theme with an interesting timer then maybe this is one to consider.
Working – Responsive Under Construction WordPress Theme
Working is a sleek under construction theme that is very well made it is responsive to help your site look great on all devices. Highlights of this theme are countdown timer, social integration and MailChimp email form included. I personally like the full-screen image display plus the filterable portfolio section included to help you show customers what you have to offer.
Caelus – App Landing & Coming Soon WP Theme
Caelus is an interesting one to consider because it has a drag and drop widgetize home page that allow you to easily incorporate other interesting elements in your site. It comes prebuilt with two different colour scheme to switch between, you also get a range of beautiful fonts to add further character. If you use MailChimp, then you will be happy to here that it is supported on this theme without any extra plugins.
xTime is a clean and modern construction WordPress theme that is simple and straight to the point. Highlights of this theme are the ability to set full-screen background images or even a video background to show maybe a behind the scene on goings. You also have the option to display a countdown timer date that will give users an idea of when to revisit your site.
Aitasi – Under Construction Page
If you want to add a bit more detail to your coming soon page, then you might want to consider Aitasi. This theme is like all the features you will need and a bit more, you get the countdown timer, subscription form, contact form and more. You will also be happy to hear that Google font is also integrated to give more flexibility regarding personalisation.
Felice takes a different approach to the normal countdown timer; it uses a progress bar that is very visual appealing. What I love must about this theme besides it being free is that it is very well laid out. You get room to tell your story and a good place optin form. I urge you to try at least it out, it does have by default a feminine scheme that is editable.
In writing this post, I found a lot more maintenance style theme however not all of them have made it to this list only the best is listed above.
