This collection of themes is all about flat style. What is flat style you ask? Well, I’m here to tell you all about it.
Some WordPress themes have a lot of design flourishes. Drop shadows, extra details in the fonts, things like that. Flat themes avoid all of that noice and give you a clean, often times colorful layout that squarely focuses the attention on your website’s content, right where it should be. These themes are sort of similar to, but a little different than true minimalist themes, which avoid anything but plain, spare images and un-decorated text. Flat themes are somewhere in between regular WordPress templates and minimal style themes.
We’ve tried our best to find a group of themes that have great looking, simple and clean style, but that also have the features you need to create a really stunning website. So, here they are, our favorite flat WordPress themes to help you craft a really strong website.
Extra, Flat WordPress Theme for Magazines
Extra is a great looking theme from Elegant Themes, which is among the very biggest and best theme developers around. Extra is one of their flagship themes, it’s based on the Divi pagebuilder and it’s got an epic flat style, tons of tools and an attractive layout that helps you get the most out of every piece of content you create. Extra is the ultimate magazine theme. It has so many features, it’s hard to list them all, but I’ll give it a shot. There’s the category builder, which is based on Divi’s powerful module system for building posts and pages. There’s the fully responsive layout, built in ratings and reviews system, so you don’t have to rely on an outside plugin to rate products. Extra is eCommerce ready, it has an elegant and flat design. The updates keep coming fast with Extra, so your site will keep pace with any changes made to WordPress and if you run into issues, the support is first rate. This is a definite theme to consider.
Reco, WordPress Flat Theme for Freebies
This clean and flat WordPress theme is called Reco. Rica was designed as a minimalist theme for giving away free stuff. I’m not sure exactly why it would be specific to giving away free stuff, I think it could be just as good as anything for a magazine type of website. It looks like folks are in agreement with me, this theme has been sold over 30 times in its first two days on the market. It’s also quickly racked up a perfect five star rating, even though it’s just been rated for times. Sure, that’s not many, but it is a good sign that right off the bat, people seem to be enjoying this template.
Reco has a flat design that really does make it work for almost anything. Good for magazines and blogs, digital freebies, giveaways, mock-ups, graphic design projects and more, this is theme is super lightweight and achieves excellent results in terms of page load times. It’s simple to use and even more simple to customize. This mobile friendly WordPress theme has three single post layouts, it’s completely responsive, as you would expect, it’s fully documented, offers one click demo import and was built with SEO firmly in mind. The result is a high-performance WordPress theme that I think that you can trust for any sort of magazine purpose.
We’ve got a couple collections that you might be interested in if you think this theme looks pretty good, but isn’t quite what you had in mind. We’ve got a collection of, minimal, simple WordPress themes that serve a wide variety of purposes, many of them have a very similar and flat looking style. Which brings us to our collection of flat WordPress templates, a great resource for all the newest and best flat designs that really put your content at the ‘adult table’, so to speak. It’s only October, but I’ve got Thanksgiving on the lined, evidently.
