10+ Best Multipurpose WordPress Themes of 2021 

Today, I’ll show you the top 10 best free WordPress themes for 2021. I’ll be honest: this article took me longer to research and write. Then I thought it would because I spent days testing out various free WordPress themes and narrowed my list down to 10 themes that I think you’ll like. 

Many of these new WordPress theme companies are just introducing some really innovative features that you’ve probably never seen before. Today, I’ll give a brief overview of all the WordPress themes in this article.

 So, I’ll be judging these themes on a scale from one to ten, with one being the best. I’m rating these themes based on the theme customization and features, so what the theme can actually do, not necessarily the templates or plugins that it comes with. These top 10 WordPress themes are all unique in their specific way. 

They offer free starter templates, so you can easily import your website with one click. These themes provide various customization features that help you with specific website needs. 

They are well-coded and adhere to the WordPress.org coding standards. This ensures that your site is optimized and runs great, and they all work with major page builders like Elementor, Divi, Gutenberg, and Brizy. Now, keep in mind that a lot of these themes are free, but they all come with a pro version, so if you do decide to use the free version and you want to upgrade to the pro version, you can do so.

If you are a beginner and don’t know what a WordPress theme is, You can read this post: – 

What Is A WordPress Theme (All You Need To Know About WordPress Theme)

1.Blocksy 

blocksy

The Blocksy theme is the most underrated WordPress theme I’ve come across. It offers the most features for free themes on this entire list. First, the theme customizer looks great. It categorizes each section to make things easier, and it offers a light and a dark scheme. 

The header and footer options are incredible. Blocksy offers an amazing built-in theme builder. You can have a custom header and footer for each specific page. You can design a transparent menu for each specific page, which a lot of themes don’t offer. You can also design a sticky menu that you can fully customize while it’s in its sticky state for each specific page. 

you can also add an excellent canvas menu and drag-and-drop elements that you can fully customize. The header options for Blocksy are pretty impressive, and you get a lot of them in the free version. Blocksy also works great for blogs. you can pick from five different layouts. you can customize each element, like changing the size of the featured image or changing the size of the heading tag for the title; you can hide specific elements like content, read more excerpts from featured images, and even the title, although I’m not sure why you’d want to do that.

 It comes with an option to have a sticky sidebar, which is actually what I use on my WordPress website. Now, if you’re running an e-commerce store, I would highly suggest trying Blocksy. The Blocksy theme has tons of features for your e-commerce website. For example, in the general section, you can change the sale badge type to a square or circle.

You can set the sale badge value to a specific number instead of saying sales. You can also design the elements on every single product that you want. Also, for your shop page, you have various styles. There is shop page type 1 and shop page type 2. You can change the columns and rows for your e-commerce website. You also have options in the cards, and you can design and customize every single element within your shop page. 

So, it can get the look and feel of whatever you’re trying to accomplish now. As far as customization goes for the single product page, there is a lot you can do. There are four different styles of how you can design your product page. There’s even a second style of creating the product image gallery. If you add more images to your product, you can change the number of columns, adjust the thumbnail spacing, and adjust the gallery width. There are product elements that you can fully design and customize. 

You can hide some of them if you don’t want them to show. Also, they have some unique options, like a sticky summary and a floating car. So, for example, if I scroll down on the page, you will see I can add more of these products to the cart. Now, I’ve always shown you guys the free options, but there’s a lot more that they offer in the pro version. 

So, if you are running an e-commerce website, I highly recommend looking at Blocksy. They have a lot of unique features that a lot of other themes do not have. So, it is worth checking out the list that goes on with this theme. There are a lot more of the theme offers, like custom hooks that allow you to insert content anywhere you want within the website and also a new affiliate extension that is geared for affiliate marketing but I’ll let you install the WordPress theme and find out for yourself. 

2. Neve 

neve theme

The Neve theme is another overall great WordPress theme the free version comes with a hundred free starter templates and a header and footer builder. 

The header and footer builder are pretty standard and work great. You can add elements to the menu and drag them around. You can also shrink them and add more elements within a section, which is cool. They also give you some starter templates to help inspire your header. 

The pro version of Neve is even better. It gives you access to the header theme builder, which allows you to have a different header and footer for each specific page, which is cool. 

Neve also comes with 100 free starter templates that work with Gutenberg, Elementor, and Brizy, and the pro version includes 10 starter templates for Divi and Thrive. The Neve theme is also very lightweight, and it boasts that you can score 100% on tt metrics and Google page speed insights, which I thought was quite impressive. 

The Neve theme is probably one of this list’s most stable WordPress themes. It’s well-coded. This theme is perhaps one of the best themes for e-commerce in the free version; you can change pretty much everything, and they have tons of styling options. You can change the products per row and the products per page. Also, the product card has many different styling options for the layout and add-to carts. 

You can add a box shadow around all of your products if you want to. What’s also cool is that you can add a feature called advanced reviews, which shows how many times people are reviewing a specific product for the sale banner. 

You can change it to the left or even have a bigger one, and you can also change the alignment for your sale banner. 

The single product customization is also very diverse. You can change the element orders or hide any of these elements. 

It adds two different product galleries, and there are various options for your e-commerce store, like a sticky ad of carts or related products button that you can add throughout your single product pages. So, in short, Neve can be good for just about any WordPress website you are building, and the company has an excellent reputation in the WordPress community. 

The Neve theme is growing in popularity. In one year, they’ve doubled their active installs from 100k to 200k, so you can see why people are using it more and more. 

3.Suki 

suki wordpress theme

I must say this is another hidden gem WordPress theme. Like other WordPress themes, the Suki theme comes with a header and footer builder. 

What was unique about Suki is that you can customize the size of each specific element in the header, which I thought was pretty clever, and you can build different headers for various devices. Suki probably allows the most customization options for the header I’ve ever seen in a WordPress theme. 

The only drawback is if you want to change the colors or have a transparent menu. You’ll need to upgrade to the pro version, but that’s not necessarily bad. The pro version of Suki adds a lot, and I think it’s worth your time. You will get unlimited elements for the theme, a unique WooCommerce search Ajax elements, a mega menu builder, and a beautiful preload builder. 

The Suki Pro version includes various blog options and custom hooks to insert content anywhere you want within your WordPress websites. Suki also has dynamic page setting options for the 404-post and post-archive pages in the free version. 

Suki offers nicely designed starter templates for Elementor and Brizy and starter templates for e-commerce websites. The pro version of Suki does offer some nice features for WooCommerce.

 It offers different product layouts, WooCommerce optimization, and an off-canvas menu for your shop page, which I thought looked cool. I do believe Suki is one of the free themes worth upgrading to the pro version. Again, Suki is one of the newer upcoming themes for 2021, and it’s just very underrated, so be sure to check this theme out.

4.CosmosWP

cosmos wp

If you plan on using Gutenberg, this is the theme for you. The CosmosWP theme is the newest yet powerful WordPress theme for Gutenberg I’ve ever come across. CosmosWP offers a great custom header and footer builder. 

You can drag an element into the header and fully design it with ease. There are some additional options for the menu, like different-style borders and box options. You can use this theme for all major page builders and it is quite simple to use. 

CosmosWP gives you tons of customization options over the header and footer elements. It also offers neat features like scrolling to the top and tons of styling options for your websites with the CosmosWP theme. You’ll have access to a variety of beautiful demos, blocks, and pre-made websites for Gutenberg and some templates for WooCommerce stores.

 It also comes with their specialty plugin called Gutentor, which also gives you access to their library blocks templates and complete websites that are all for free. You can use this theme with Elementor and Brizy,

but I think it’s more suitable for those who solely plan on using Gutenberg it’s a real hidden gem I found it’s a newer theme and it’s underrated so if you are using Gutenberg, I think this is a great pick for your WordPress websites.

5. Deep 

deep wordpress theme

The Deep theme is one of the newer themes to hit the market this year, and man, are these developers getting aggressive? 

The Deep theme starts with a setup wizard, where you can import six nice starter websites. Unlike the other header and footer builders, Deep has the most advanced header and footer system I have ever seen, and it looks great. You can style each specific element with tons of customization features.

 you can also customize the header for each specific device and have a custom header for your sticky menu. The Deep theme comes with a few pre-designed headers to make things easier, and it also has a horizontal header builder, but I did have some trouble with it, and it didn’t work for me,

But since it’s a newer theme, just give them a month or two to fix the bugs. Besides that, the customizer options are nice. The Deep theme offers preloaders, scroll-to-top options, white labeling, and other really neat features that you would usually need to plugin for, like smooth scrolling. 

The Deep theme allows you to have full-page and container layouts. What’s also neat is that you can customize each of the page sizes for the blog and mobile devices. 

There are also various styling options for your blog. You can choose from several different styles. It also has some cool sharing layouts for your post pages. This theme comes with 50 new elements for your WordPress website, all for free, which I think is pretty generous.

 I didn’t have time to go through each element, but you get the idea. The customization options for each component are staggering—just the icon box alone has 30 different styles to choose from. Each component has unique styling options, so be sure to check those out. The only drawback of this theme is that it is a resource, and you will need a perfect web host.

I also found some minor bugs and glitches for this theme, like the horizontal menu not working well and some customization features just being a little unresponsive. That’s why I ranked it number five, but this theme has tons of potential; just give them time.

6. Astra

astra wordpress theme

Everyone knows the Astra theme. It is the most installed WordPress theme in the WordPress repository and is best known for its fantastic starter templates. 

The Astra theme comes with 100 free starter templates and more than 250 starter templates in its pro version. You can change the page layout for each page and have different styling options for transparent menus on each page. 

Personally, I don’t think Astra offers many features compared to many of the other WordPress themes on the list; however, the Astra theme is currently unveiling its new header and footer builder. I think it’s going to be good. most people use the Astra theme for the starter templates. These guys have done a superb job making each layout look great and come with various pages. As far as starter templates, Astra probably offers the most,

and they look great. While the Astra theme doesn’t offer as many features as other themes, it’s a very reputable theme that is also very lightweight and carries a good reputation. 

7. phlox   

phlox wp theme

Phlox is probably one of the best-designed WordPress themes on this list. It’s clean, the options are really easy to understand, and the templates look great. What’s unique about the Phlox theme is the design options: You can choose from four different page animations. 

Enable pre-loaders and put your logo as the pre-loaded image. There is also a progress bar to customize and change the colors. The Fox theme is excellent for all page builders and offers different page layouts, different post layouts, and some different layouts for your WooCommerce products. The Phlox theme provides around 25 free starter templates that look fantastic, and to be honest, I think they probably have the best design templates on this entire list of WordPress themes I am presenting. 

What’s also neat about Flocks is that you get 40+ new elements on your website. While some of these elements feel a little useless, they have some cool and creative elements that you can add to your WordPress websites. 

What I like most about Phlox is that its features are very different from many other WordPress themes, like the page animations and just the overall style of how they presented the theme customizer. But sometimes, I feel the options can be overwhelming, and sometimes, I cannot even find out what I’m designing. Still, it’s probably a good thing they have many options. 

The only drawback is that they don’t offer a header and footer builder, which is a big deal-breaker. However, they do offer an extension that uses the elementary page builder as its header and footer. That’s still a nice feature, but I prefer the theme customizer to make the header and footers; it feels more natural. 

The pro version of Phlox is one of the best sellers at Theme Forest, but I think that’s mainly due to the nicely designed templates. One slight drawback is that if you are going to use this theme, make sure you have good hosting. This theme requires a lot of server resources, and that’s fine as long as you have good web hosting.

8. OceanWP 

ocean wp

OceanWP is old school. It is the second most installed WordPress theme in the WordPress repository. The general options are packed with different page layouts, containers, and sizes, different styling options for page titles, scroll-to-top buttons, and contact forms that you can customize. You can also have different page layouts for each specific page.

OceanWP options have many customization style options, but it does lock a header and a footer builder, which is disappointing. Figuring out how long they’ve been around, you can still create a custom header with OceanWP using the elements or page builder, but I think you can already do this with the Elementor Pro version. 

I wish they would clean up a lot of the styling options because they’re very scattered throughout the theme customizer, and at times, the options can be a bit overwhelming. OceanWP also offers some starter templates for Elementor and Gutenberg. Now, I’m not picking on OceanWP, but they do have a lot of extensions, and I do find these extensions are not worth $30 apiece. 

They should probably combine all these and charge one flat feed to increase enhancements for their WordPress theme. Installing these many plugins on a WordPress website to make it functional doesn’t seem optimal for speed. Still, overall, it’s a great WordPress theme with everything you need for an essential WordPress website.

9. Zita 

zita wp theme

Zita is one of the few WordPress themes that offers something unique in the theme customizer. It offers seven different-style headers and some options to add buttons or icons to your header. 

A cool feature is having the logo vertical, which gives it a cool and creative look. You can also assign the transparent menu and have them on specific pages in the free version. Another cool feature of Zita is that you can use a pre-loader and set an image for that specific pre-loader. You can adjust the page size and the width of each page with data, so it works with all major page builders. 

It works great for WooCommerce and has various styling options for the product and shop pages. The Zita theme also comes with 25 free starter templates. They also offer starter websites for breezy. They are not the best-looking, but they’re better than nothing.

10. Zakra  

zakra wordpress

Zakra is a very standard WordPress theme that comes with just enough features to get your website up and running. It offers various container styles that you can customize for each specific page. Zakra offers some simple features, like adding a secondary menu and some different styling options for your header.

 It also comes with some different layouts for WooCommerce and your single product, so overall, Zakra is a decent WordPress theme that can get the job done. The Zakra theme comes with 25 free starter templates for Elementor that you can quickly import with one click. Some of the starter templates even come with up to seven pages, which is cool. 

The pro version offers more control over the header and more layouts, as well as access to their entire library of pretty nice templates.

Conclusion

So, ultimately, all 10 of these WordPress themes are solid picks for your websites. Everyone has their unique needs. So, it’ll be up to you to go through these themes. Just do the WordPress thing, you know. Trial and error: see what works out for you and your website. Let us know in the comments!
