75 Eye-Poppingly Colorful WordPress Themes

There’s nothing like a pop of color to welcome people to your site.

It takes a good designer to create an bold and colorful site – choosing the wrong color palette or hues that simply don’t match can leave your site looking gaudy and tasteless. And too many colors can leave your visitors confused, especially if they can’t easily find what they are looking for.

But when used wisely, color has the ability to affect the mood of your visitors. Makes people feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed with blue hues or sell your sales pitch with an aggressive shade of red.

Whatever color scheme you choose, a great deal of creativity goes into designing a bold and colorful theme.

To get you inspired, I’ve gathered a collection of stunning WordPress themes that make great use of strong color. Many of the designs feature flat design and responsive layouts – both hot trends right now.

  1. Hello Raelene,

    Thanks for taking the time to review all of these. A real improvement to the article, if you have time, would be the addition of an *interior* page screenshot.

    As a developer/designer, I’m often explaining to bounced-clients who hoped for a $100 site and not a $1000 site that picking a theme is about more than the front page. The first thing a person should do, before getting technical, is check what a page and post look like once a person gets past the landing area. For example, “Agency Pro” has a nice look to their team section but the blog posts are incredibly inefficient. If I were to ad 7 or 8 tags, the style they have used would become incredibly cumbersome.

    Second, it’s always good to view the source code of a a demo page and then run it through Web Page Test. The first thing we note in Agency is that all of the Javascripts are in the head, as well as the fact that the video scripts are loading even when there is no video on the page. On the other hand, WPT shows that there are just 57 requests on the page and the theme images are well compressed. Going back to the source, we can see that they enqueue jQuery from the WordPress source and, despite what the internet tries to tell you, this is a very good thing. The Google CDN version will run into a lot of plugin conflicts.

    I’d grade a once over on the engineering about a B+ and the overall design a B-. They could have improved significantly by focusing more on the design of interior element design instead of making it an afterthought. Overall, adapting this theme to a client’s look and feel would probably be 10-12 hours of work.

    Granted, going through this for all of the themes would take you a few hours but it’ll dramatically improve the article’s utility to a reader.
