6 Most Customizable WordPress Themes


Working on the WordPress project is a great experience. The idea of building a website from scratch can make us happy, but there is one thing that stays common among the projects, Themes — to be more specific paid themes that look all similar.

Having common looking themes is so generic these days. You start up a project and just change a few things from the customizer and woosh the project is done. The non-availability of the customization options hampers the end result, and no one wants to generate a website that ends up looking the same.

To solve this issue, today we will go through the most customizable WordPress Theme for your projects. These themes are above par compared to most of the themes out there and will help you gain an advantage in the competitive market. Uniqueness always results in great end results if done right.

Wrap Up

Today, I went through six most customizable WordPress theme. These themes are handpicked and can fit in any of your projects. The choice is up to you which theme or framework to choose for your next project.

X Theme is my personal favorite as it offers unique design through stacks. But, some of the customizable themes are bloated(even the WordPress platform is quite bloated to be true), and you may want to reconsider the speed of the theme before making the call.

Overall, I loved writing the article and I would request you to share and comment the article as much as possible.

      Hi Abdur,

      Yes the Bridge theme and others are great but the issue I find with almost all of them is they are very bulky and slow 🙁
