In this article, I have put together 10 of the best premium WordPress themes you can use which are not only pleasing to the eyes but are responsive and functional as well.

There are heaps of premium WordPress themes out there if you only know where to look.

But since I want to make it a lot easier for you, I’ve collected some of my favorites which you will find if you continue to scroll down.

Please note though, these themes only work with a self-hosted blog, meaning you have to be with and not

If you haven’t started your blog yet, I highly recommend Siteground as your web host. With Siteground, you can create your own blog or website for as low as $4.95/month! I can help you set it up here.

#1. DIVI by Elegant Themes

I love Divi by Elegant Themes and this is in fact my first choice when it comes to premium themes. I used this for my very first blog and I highly recommend this for beginners as it allows you to freely customize your website through a visual builder and you can do this even without coding knowledge.

Why did I change my theme then if I think Divi is the best?

Well… first it’s because I wanted to try another theme which I do not regret.

Second, a great theme also comes with a great price. A subscription to Elegant Themes will cost you $89USD/year. Yes, you read that right. It’s not a one-time purchase but a yearly subscription, unless of course you are willing to invest $249USD for the lifetime membership.

However, it gives you access not just to Divi but to hundreds of website layouts, awesome plugins such as email opt-in and social sharing, 24/7 premium support, and a lot more.

Overall, I will definitely use Divi again in the future but for now, I am sharing this with you as I know that you will love it too. Want to experience it firsthand? Get your 30-day free trial here.

      Thanks for this! I’m currently still using one of the standard free WordPress themes, but I would like to upgrade. Do you know any themes that work well with BuddyPress forums by chance?

      You’ve got some really pretty themes here. I am a firm believer that finding that ‘perfect’ theme for your vision of your site and the features that matter to you is one of the big steps and 110% worth the investment! I picked mine up from SoloPine and I am SOO happy with it!
