You want your ecommerce store to look good, be easy to use and, above all, convert visitors. But with so many themes to choose from, how do you decide which design will work best for your site?
Here we take a look at some of our favourite and best reviewed Magento designs of the moment. Which do you like most?
1. Black & White – The All-Rounder
Black & White is a great all-rounder and will suit almost any kind of store thank to its easy-to-use customisation features. The theme, created back in March 2014, has seen a flood of great reviews flow in ever since.
If you’re looking for a flexible, high-resolution design that you can put your own personal touch on – Black & White is for you!
2. BearStore – For Bloggers
Another versatile design is the premium Magento theme BearStore. Part of the advanced admin module, this responsive theme is WordPress integration ready – perfect for those looking to write a brand blog!
BearStore may be a slightly older theme (it was created in April 2013) but if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
3. GreatShop – For Responsive Design
GreatShop is a premium responsive WordPress theme by WooCommerce. Its universal flat multipurpose design offers a modern looking store that’s sure to impress your customers. And what’s more, you can add special extras, as premium plugins are free!
This design theme has a strong and powerful backend control panel that makes accessing its premium features seem effortless. Choose GreatShop if you’re looking for a high-quality, expensive-looking theme with the simple effectiveness of responsive design.
4. Legenda – For Luxury Products
Are you a purveyor of fine food or drink? Or maybe you sell luxury clothing or vehicles? Whatever you sell, the Legenda Dark Version oozes class and is sure to make your product look great.
Legenda is another premium responsive Magento commerce theme with advanced admin module, but this stand out theme is ideal for a novice designer looking to build a custom project. It includes free blogging capabilities and looks exquisite on mobile devices.
5. Simplicity – For Fun and Fashionable
Bright and cheerful yet still stylish, Simplicity is a specialised Magento theme designed for fashion ecommerce retailers. So whether you’re into skyscraper heels, blingy jewellery or some decent basic vests, take note.
This simple design frames products perfectly and its responsive design is ideal if you see a lot of mobile traffic. We think this is the ideal design if your target market is young, fashionable women.
6. Ves GentShop – Simple yet Effective
Who said you have to cram products onto your homepage? The Ves GentShop Demo 4 uses basic cube design to frame important sales messages and display key products in a cool and tasteful theme with subtle background imagery.
But just because the homepage is clean of clutter, it doesn’t mean it won’t appeal to sellers with a large product range. In fact, this theme is more than suitable for large stores.
Plus, it’s built on venus framework version 2.0 and bootstrap version 3.x so will look great at any resolution.
7. Granada – Designer Cool
Granada is the cool kid on the block. It looks chic and works well, but doesn’t have to shout about what benefits it has to offer. This new theme only came out in February 2015 but it is quickly gaining great reviews all over the net.
High resolution and responsive, Granada is coded with standout high-quality graphics that show elements in ultra-high retina displays. This is a relatively affordable theme which will make your site look extremely exclusive.
8. Porto – For Flexibility
One of the best reviewed themes out there alongside Legenda and Granada, Porto is deemed the ‘ultimate responsive Magento theme’ and has sold 10 times more than some of the others on this list. In fact, it’s Magento’s top-selling theme so far in 2015!
So why’s it so popular? Well, it offers an unheard-of 16 homepage design variants that look good and load quickly. This is a flexible theme that lets users really experiment.
