Today we bring you the ultimate collection of the 100 best free WordPress themes of 2013, and hope you enjoy it as much as you did with icons, UI sets and HTML/PSD templates. You might think, choosing a premium theme guarantees for the best possible experience, when it comes to building a WordPress site. This is certainly true in a lot of cases, ye there are quite a few free templates that have much to offer when it comes to functionality. Along with basic features that are inherent to almost every modern theme, they are also rich in specific components that depending on the type of theme can of course vary. You can easily create a website that is populated with various widgets, sliders, carousels, galleries, lightboxes, even contact forms that are traditionally found only in paid versions. As for customization, it is also not a problem since each theme provides its owner with a small yet effective option panel that helps you change the background, set coloring, quickly upload logos and much more. Besides, you don't have to be a WP expert to derive benefits from free templates. Each of our following themes meets standard requirements and offers detailed documentation that is aimed to lead even newbie WordPress users through the general steps of building their own website.
