WordPress is a wonderful resource for businesses as they start up. It’s easier than ever to start a company and to foster a good online presence and WordPress is the exact sort of resource that makes things easy. One of WordPress’ best tools is the ability to use templates, pre-designed decisions on font, layout and all of the other important elements to the look of your website. Sadly, a lot of companies don’t take full advantage of this, opting to use the basic options. So, let’s take a look at the ten best themes for your business or sole trader site.
Moober is a wonderful option for anyone who is starting a website to showcase their work. This can be anything from design to artwork, whatever you want displayed, it’ll look clean and clear with Moober. The minimalist black and white will remain unobtrusive and allow you to build a real gallery for yourself.
Coming in at the same price point, NineCore is an elegantly designed template that appeals to people working in design itself, or architecture and urban planning. “NineCore really evokes that feeling of professionalism and beauty that connects so well with those looking for some sort of architecture or interior design help”, says Marcus Pallola, content manager at Academized and Paper Fellows.
ReConstruction is a very slick looking WordPress template that gives you all the navigational design and image space for your dream restaurant website. Opening a ReConstruction site will have your visitors’ mouths watering and a very easy route towards reservations as well to make sure that you can capitalize on the tasty looking design features.

Pediatrist is a really stylish template, laid back but seductive, offering you a range of options particularly if you are a musician or other creative. It has great options for embedding media players and encourages users to stick around. “Pediatrist is a template that really evokes atmosphere. Visitors will want to stay and listen to the music or watch the content, the site itself acting as a two-dimensional jazz club or private cinema”, says Vivian Murnau, tech writer at Australian help and Stateofwriting.
HiggsBoson continues the theme of being stylish and a pleasure to visit. HiggsBoson could work for a range of companies, most of which rely on imagery to appeal to visitors. Beauty salons, fashion houses, a photographer’s portfolio etc. Minimalist chic combines with huge space for image or video to create an impactful site.

Simple but delightful, Flat is your designer’s choice. Blocky bright colors are enticing but not over-complicated and helps the text to really stand out. A good choice for a whole range of sites.
