    • DNN says:

      I’m glad that I chose to add a WordPress blog to the site because with it, I believe some of the WordPress themes are helping to better optimize the complete site for search engines like Bing, Google, and Yahoo without the other side of the site being WordPress. I love content marketing! :-)

    Istiak bro
    I have got 100+ free themes from boost-work.com. I use one html template to design my portfolio website.
    But your most of themes need to be purchased. I have no card to purchased. However, you did a great job.

    Thanks

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yes, all of them are premium. But they are worth every penny.

  • Al Mamun says:

  • Ashwani Jain says:

    Hello Rayhan bro,
    Again you’ve written a very wonderful blog post. I have a little request to you. Please share some list of the sites which can provide us some free stuff.
    Thank you again for such wonderful informative blog post.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Okay, I will write a post on free themes. For now, I’d suggest you to check MyThemeShop. It has some awesome free themes.

  • For any serious developer the best option will be Genesis Framework and for non-coders i would recommend X theme :)

    This is a great selection btw!

    If you are looking for more premium wordpress themes, check out this article as further reading!

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      I’ve been using Genesis Framework for more than one year. And I must say, it’s AWESOME.

      Heard a lot about X theme, but never tried it.

  • Mohit Arora says:

    Thanks Istiak for sharing this list. As you said Genesis is your favorite, I also tried StudioPress and gave genesis a shot on my blog – CatchUpdates.com. Truly its worth to pay. Thanks and keep sharing useful info :)

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Yeah, StudioPress is awesome. I’ve been using this for long time.

  • Biplab says:

    Hi Istiak, Thank you so much for this list. We really sometimes get confused to buy a professional premium theme. I need to go elegant and theme forest to buy a new premium theme. Also, all the site list you have mentioned above also very good.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      ElegantThemes has some awesome themes. You can go with them. Here at RTB, I am using ThriveThemes.

  • Riju Debnath says:

    Hi Istiak,
    Currently, I am using mythemeshop theme and thinking about to change in near future.
    Hearing lots of positive on thrive themes.
    Right now you are also using it on Roadtoblogging. So how is your experience and did you found any cons.
    Thanks for sharing such a brilliant list of premium WP themes.
    Cheers

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      That would be a great move. ThriveThemes increases my conversion rates. I haven’t found any cons yet. I will write ThriveThemes review soon.

  • Brad says:

    You have picked some really good WordPress theme sites here. I gone through the entire list and personally I like ElegantThemes . Thank you very much for sharing. I would recommend you to add Solwin Infotech. They’re also making amazing WordPress Themes and Plugins.

    • Istiak Rayhan says:

      Thanks for letting me know about the Solwin Infotech. I’ll check it soon.

  • Vivekanand Arumanda says:

    First of all thank you so much for the superb info. I love Themeforest and MyThemeshop. You need some experience and research to buy from Themeforest since it’s a marketplace. You have to spot the theme with proper coding and speed optimization as well. MyThemeshop is one of the best. You can get coupon codes at discounted prices.

  • Joseph says:

    Genesis and Elegant are far better than Thrive. While Thrive has a good SEO package, it will cost you. It is not $60 or $70 (or even $49) as expressed–that is only their introductory fee at a discount to rope you in. Be especially wary of their “automatic renewal” scheme, hidden. The annual fee is now triple that, with no notice to the customer of any automatic renewal (they renew even though your website is NON-existent or ended–gosh, one would think they would check if one’s website still exists!! (thinking their SEO rankings here–seriously?? they do NOT check–just take your money).

    Thrive customer service is childish and horrible, nose thumbed up without care for the customer. Good technicals, but poor financials, and non-existent customer service.

    Genesis = easy; Elegant = better themes. THRIVE–AVOID!

    • Nephtalie Pierre says:

      Do you use both Genesis(studio press) and Elegant? I’m currently debating if I should use on or the other or both.

      • Istiak Rayhan says:

        Currently, I am using Focusblog of Thrive Themes. It’s the best choice for bloggers. However, what kind of blog/site are you going to start?

  • Jasmine says:

    Choosing the right theme for the right website is really important to make a popular website. Thanks dear for sharing this great list.

  • Nisful Ardi says:

    Themeforest?
    Hmm… I think this is best site to buy theme WordPress.

  • Ava says:

    I was looking couple of theme for upcoming website and your article really help me to identify it .

    Thanks for sharing such reference of the site a place !!!

  • Frank John says:

    Nice Collection! I would like to suggest one more premium WordPress theme provider named as Webinane. It developed many WordPress themes such as LifeLine, LifeLine 2, MagUp, Zetra, Medicalist and much more! So, i wish to add webinane in your list. Thanks

    • Nicole Louise says:
