Web designers are ready for any type of projects. They range from single product websites, to fully-fledged web stores, portfolios and blogs. No two clients are alike, either. Today, one may ask for an online clothing store, and tomorrow, another demands a photography website.

The most valuable WordPress themes are those that stand the test of time. X Theme started out as something new and unproven, too. That was one year ago. Since then, it never stopped being popular, and sold more than 38K copies to date.

X theme’s versatility is legendary. The demos cover four different designs: Integrity, Renew, Icon, and Ethos. It’s child’s play to customize a Stack into a singular website using the settings panel with live preview. Your website would have clean code, and integrate useful functionality.
X Theme has recently added 15 Extensions that are custom-made or adapted WordPress plugins. Make an individual purchase, and you get Extensions plus free lifetime updates.
Since we’re on the subject of versatile themes and how they rule our preferences in 2015, BeTheme is one of the best examples. You want to find a theme that you can stick with for more than one project. A theme that you won’t have to change too soon, because learning your way around with another one takes time. Time is of the essence when you work with deadlines, which is why BeTheme is a keeper.
It goes through weekly updates, and offers one of the most flexible page builders ever. As a matter of fact, you can create your website with the all-known Visual Composer, with shortcodes, or the Muffin Builder. Skim through 75+ demos to see what you can do with this theme.
Clients may ask you to perform some changes to their websites, after some time. Maybe they’re out of style, or maybe the owner has a change of heart. Our next recommendation simplifies the way you apply re-designs. Because, in case you didn’t know, you no longer have to change your theme or meddle with coding in order to change the appearance and functionality of one of your websites.
Designmodo has a better solution: card design. It’s totally code-free, and offers a more streamlined process. Qards is a page building plugin that you can integrate with any installed theme. The in-line editor is a fun place to be. Add content, place your cards however you like, and that’s that.
Rosa is the perfect theme for restaurant pages in 2015. Besides the fact that you can set up OpenTable reservations with it and use fantastic typography animations, let’s not forget that this is a parallax theme. This means it makes any visual-centric website stand out. So, use it freely for dynamic portfolios and professional photography websites. In these instances, you can set up glorious full-screen image galleries with your client’s best works.
We live in a Digital Era, so every freelancer and company has to create their personal brand online. Actually, you have to create it for them, using horizontal parallax and the Revolution Slider. And if you’re careful to use a theme with unlimited color options, the portfolios you craft will show brand consistency. Brand.ed helps you create professional portfolios with a builder that has the live preview feature. So, they’ll be up and running in a snap.
Divi 2.0 from Elegant Themes is coming up strong this year. If you’re a fan of geometric module design, this is your theme. Modules allow you to piece together a layout however you feel like. They are also open to customization themselves, because they have built-in CSS boxes. Alternatively to moving modules around, you can use a ready-made layout. Aside from that, Divi has options whereby you can Import and Export your layouts.
Let’s veer back towards portfolios for a second. In defense of design patterns used for this type of projects, some are really known to work. Out of those that are still prevalent in 2015, huge slideshows are the most important. So, move forward with a theme that supplies a huge variety in sliders. Kallyas, for instance. This theme also has 6 home page styles. Besides, we heard it through the grapevine that the customer support is top of the top.
Don’t you just hate those moments when you’re fresh out of ideas? Well, you had them last year, and you’re going to have them again in 2015. In those moments, the wise thing to do is to reach out for a theme that has many designs to move and inspire you. Royal has 60 themes to speak of, so you’re bound to get back on track in no-time.
When you’re busy making websites for E-commerce, remember one thing. This is 2015. A lot of shoppers go mobile. So, do your utmost to showcase products and condense information related to them. Mapping the product image with pins is a good idea. SnapShop includes a WooMapper for that. Also, it gives your users a simple Product Filter. Not to mention that you can seize the moments when a page loads to advertise – with a pop-in of the company logo.
Needless to say, coding shouldn’t be one of your cares this year. Farewell, broken designs! Codilight is up to speed with the latest HTML5 and CSS. It’s so robust, that there is no need to worry about improper or deprecated code. You just work your magic in the front office theme options panel, and create beautiful magazine blogs. Codilight caters for blogs with technology topics and reviews. By the way, it has a great built-in review system.
Dikka is a new theme in the current landscape, but we think it’s worth a try. Especially during one-page projects, the landing page of an app, the website of an architect or a creative agency, or for corporate-level clients. This theme comes packed with the Revolution Slider, and with the Cube Portfolio plugin.
Not every theme opens the demo content to all onlookers. Well, Circle Flip is not your average premium theme. You can have a good look at what expecting you on the other side. And what’s expecting you is flat design, and a smooth drag-and-drop page builder for your WooCommerce projects.
There’s a steady demand for business websites that will go well into 2015. Not to mention the web designers who are constantly making their own creative websites. Opus is good in both cases, because it can help you get a tasteful, posh look. You have 100 shortcodes in all, to cut corners.
Now for a theme based on the latest Bootstrap 3.3 framework. Although not very popular at the present time, we sense that Lambda will gradually get more acolytes this year. It includes the plugins Visual Composer, Revolution Slider, and Isotope. Besides, it’s also compatible with Gravity Forms 1.8.
On a final note, we’d like to submit a theme that is in line with the latest trends and shows great potential. WooPress is a premium E-commerce theme created by 8theme developers. If you’re set to craft a chic-looking apparel store, you should try and base it on this one.
