Best of 2016: 100 Free HTML/CSS Themes

Bringing your concept to life is a thorny path that as a rule consists of at least three main stages: prototyping a PSD draft; converting it into an HTML/CSS version spiced up with JavaScript; and further transformation of a template into a CMS theme or enhancing it with server-side functionality usually realized with the help of PHP and SQL. Though this last phase is optional since it depends on the result you want to achieve. But what if you need a website as soon as possible, and also you lack in design skills, there is only one way out – skip the first stage and get straight to the second one. The more so, there are numerous HTML/CSS websites on the wild that can boast of a beautiful design, harmonious aesthetics, and enjoyable atmosphere. The most pleasant thing that they are available free of charge; though a good rule of thumb is to credit the author by leaving a backlink to his/her website. With such a template at your fingertips, all you have to do is to adjust it to your needs, customize its appearance according to your brand identity and improve it with some extra features. And you are ready to move forward saving your precious time. Today we will look through 2016. It was rich in free stuff among which was a bunch of professionally-crafted HTML/CSS templates. We have put together various excellent themes. They will give you a head start in different undertakings whether you want to create a simple portfolio with a small showcase or a standard landing page for promoting your product.
