A few months ago we posted an article about Skeuomorph Design and today we’d like to speak about Flat Design which is an opposite trend to Skeuomorphism. This way you’ll have a chance to see web designs of both styles and understand which style is better for your project. As we’ve just mentioned, you had a chance to see some awesome examples of Skeuomorphic Design in our recent article and today we’ll focus on free WordPress themes which are following the Flat Web Design trend. We believe this article will be interesting to both WordPress and Flat design fans.
As you may know, flat designs are those with clean and neat interface. Also, you will never see shadows or gradients on a flat layout. Finally, many flat web pages and flat WordPress themes are designed in the minimalist style.
One of the best things about flat web designs is that they look elegant and stylish, regardless their color. In order to prove this we’ll be featuring bright WordPress themes today as well as white-and-black WordPress themes. It should be also mentioned that we’ll be listing free WordPress themes in different categories, meaning here you can easily find a free design for any website you have in mind (a personal blog, a photography site, a news site, a web design portfolio, a website for pet lovers, etc).
Why we think you should look through the following free WordPress themes? Because this is your chance to not only get inspiration; but also a flat design for your WordPress site.
Please remember, the above listed WordPress themes are free to download and use, but we recommend that you read the terms before you install any of them. The point is some designers allow free usage as long as you keep credit links.
