It’s some time that free theme doesn’t work so great. They don’t allow you to customize your blog’s look to every extent you may want.
Theme Forest is The Cheapest Theme Shop on the list and indeed over the web. You can get a professional WordPress theme for as low as $2.
What I like about them is they are beginner centric. They give numbers of free themes & plugins Too. This theme shop is the one where most of the new bloggers get their themes.
You can search for a theme to find your perfect fit or you can contact the sales and they’ll find a theme for you.
My Theme Shop
MyThemeShop, next to the theme forest in terms of money, but high on demand. This also ranks second in terms of popularity among new bloggers. They offer great themes at “A once and for all” prices. You don’t have to pay recurring fees every year

Genesis Framework – StudioPress
StudioPress by Copyblogger media, Gives us the “Genesis Framework”, the Top Rated and Probably the best WordPress Framework in the world.
They have been seamlessly given the best architectural design for any blog. Their themes are responsive, SEO Friendly, Multiple Device Responsive, Custom Design and Complete Ownership over what you create.
Also, note that many Bloggers including me use Genesis Framework + Custom Skin.
Beautiful. A simple word, which clearly explains about them and their work.
Themify ultra is one of the most downloaded themes of all time. You also get access to the Themify WordPress page builder plugin which is an amazing landing page builder with drag and drop interface.
Their designs are truly great in terms of looks and feel. If you are a girl and you own a food blog or a Travell blog, then Themify and Elegant Themes are the best you can get. Check out for your self and you will thank me later.
For girls and travel bloggers, Themify has many things to offer.
As their name says for themselves, they have been giving my clients the satisfaction, they couldn’t find anywhere else. Elegant themes provide superb feature-rich themes that completely make your blog out of the crowd.
