Best of 2016: 100 Free WordPress Themes

There is nothing permanent under the moon. Though, it seems that this truth constantly avoids Wordpress since year after year we see only improvements from its side. Started as a platform for blogging, this incredible CMS has grown up into a sterling website builder. It is with us for more than a decade and it surely is not going anywhere in the near future. According to the latest statistics, it has already powered a quarter of all the websites on the Web (and this is almost 250 million sites). And that’s not just small blogs or local personal portfolios. It provides a solid foundation for the 30% of the most popular and content-heavy portals around the Globe including such Goliaths as Mashable, Bloomberg, Microsoft, Samsung, MTV and so on. Speaking in 72 languages it gathers under one roof numerous nationalities, becoming a truly universal tool. It has a relatively intuitive system that can be improved by means of plugins and themes in just several clicks. It has everything to build a place where you can communicate with the online audience, share interesting facts, show your works or even sell your goods. With all that, it still remains an open-source project: free, without hidden fees and «traps». A gazillion of people both newbies and professionals are already enjoying benefits from it, so why not to start your adventure. Just download the CMS, and we will provide you with the best free Wordpress themes from 2016. Choose one and get down to business. All the themes listed below are fully responsive. Some of them are ideal partners to start your blog or magazine; others can be used to promote your products and even open your e-store.
