50 Fantastic Premium Business WordPress Themes From 2011

Advertisement

Whilst Joomla and Drupal are popular amongst website designers, WordPress is by far the number 1 used CMS in the world. Which is one of the reasons that WordPress themes are seen as such a hot commodity these days in the design world.

It’s popularity amongst design firms could explain the vast number of premium corporate designs that are available for WordPress. Gone are the days when a corporate template came with nothing more than a basic options page and a contact form. Today’s designs come with beautiful home page sliders, portfolio templates, eCommerce support and well developed blog pages. Due to this versatility, business designs can be used for just about any type of website.

Today we would like to show you 50 of the best premium themes that have been released in 2011. We hope you enjoy the list :)

    Again, amazing post!
    However, I saw some of the themes that you already shared ^^

  • Jon, 23 December 2011

    Awesome collection. I love Webly, I’ve used it before for a friend and it’s just beautiful.

  • art, 24 December 2011

    to favorites, going to buy some of them

  • Cosmin, 28 December 2011

    Brilliant list! I love all of theme, but I must admit that business-like themes make me more interested. Folio keeps things simple and organized so in my opinion is the best theme here. The “web hosting” theme from Templatic is also quite interesting and probably the perfect option for many business portfolio websites…so I guess these two are best themes for 2011 in the list. Thanks again!

  • DesignMock, 30 December 2011
