# Number 3: SpicePress
SpicePress is a responsive and fully customizable business template you can use for free. What I like about this theme are these soft animations on scrolling and the overall layout. It’s a perfect solution for any type of website, especially for startups, but you can use it as a freelancer too.
SpicePress is translation ready and supports popular plugins like WPML, Polylang, WooCommerce and Contact Form 7.
# Number 4: AStore
AStore can be a very a good choice, you can use for free, for building an online store since it’s fully compatible with WooCommerce, the most popular e-commerce plugin. I think it’s interesting how the category menu on the lefts side remains open only on the front page. If you click on any of those categories, you can see that the “browse categories” menu shows only when you hover over with your mouse. Nice trick! Furthermore, everything looks great and as clear as possible.
The shop page is pretty basic and it displays the most important info about your products. There is a nice effect that will reveal the “add to cart” link once you hover over the product, and you can toggle the page view. After adding some products to their cart, your clients will see those products. It’s a nice theme that works just fine and if you want to download this theme or any other theme in this article, just click on the image.
# Number 5: Rara Business
Rara Business is a free WordPress theme for business and corporate websites. You can use it to build small business and freelancers websites as well. This theme is visually appealing and clean. Every section looks great, is well designed and has nice looking hover animations on buttons and other items like in the portfolio section. It is responsive, Schema.org compatible, SEO friendly, RTL compatible, speed optimized, and translation ready.
# Number 6: Customify
Customify is fast, lightweight, responsive and a super flexible multipurpose theme built with SEO, speed, and usability in mind. It has multiple page layout options and if you want, as a magazine, for example, you can create pages with two sidebars. The theme works great with any of your favorite page builder, and this is how a page looks like when its built with Elementor. Combined with the Header & Footer builder, you can actually build any type of websites. Last but not least, the blog page looks awesome because it has no fancy effects or useless elements.
# Number 7: GeneratePress
GeneratePress can serve as a solid base for any website and works great with any of your favorite page builders. This theme is device friendly (mobile and tablet), uses 100% valid HTML, is fully schema microdata integrated, is translated into over 20 languages and is cross-browser compatible.
Let’s take a look at some of the demo websites you can create using GeneratePress. Tasty, for example, is a simple blog style layout… Nothing to comment about it but It can be a good starting point for a personal blog. Pivot, on the other hand, has more elements you can play with. Scrolling down, you can see four well-designed sections which can help you to create a powerful business website in minutes, for example.
One of the demos that get my attention now is Awaken which has a stunning design overall with beautiful colors and has a nice looking curved section divider.It also has wonderful sections with different content that fit perfectly one after another. Honestly, the pricing section looks a bit strange but you can use Elementor and your own imagination to create something much better in this section. Even though everything it works with Elementor, this theme has nothing in common with the Elementor WordPress plugin developers. It is a simple, maybe too simple WordPress theme.
This theme can be easily customized to make any kind of websites you want as you can see in the demos. I noticed that many of these elements in the demos are borrowed from other page builders or page templates so I think they will need to make an effort to create something unique, if they really want to stand out.
