Conclusion – What WordPress theme should you choose?
As you can see these are only 5 out of endless themes out there. What these themes do very well is their multi-purpose. You can use the same theme for 10 different business, but still, keep the same style within the businesses. If you read about the different themes, you will notice the differences between them.
Before you choose a theme to go with, you need to be 100% sure in your decision. Don’t rush the solution as a theme is your visual face on the web. Set the different themes up against each other, write the pros and cons for your specific need. You will then reach a point where you know what theme is for you, and often it’s not what you through from the beginning.
