If you are considering creating a WordPress website, you might be drawn to the fact that it is so easy to customise. One of WordPress’ best features is that you can design the site so that it is truly unique. Your site doesn’t need to look like another blog, or even look like a blog at all. However, with so much chance to customise WordPress, there are many, many different themes available. Are there too many?
Easy to get overwhelmed
If you’ve ever searched for WordPress themes, the sheer number of search engine results that come up can show you how many themes exist. Even within WordPress’ own theme viewer, the possibilities seem endless. There are options that feature different colours, columns, image display options, headers, and more.
When you try to set up a WordPress site on your own, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. After all, you might not know where to start, let alone which options are the most important for the type of site you want to create. If you aren’t a WordPress developer, you are also left with options that have largely been created for other people, not for you.
Working with an expert
One of the best ways to navigate through the sea of WordPress themes is by enlisting the help of a WordPress expert. A WordPress designer and developer can go beyond sifting through the existing themes to create a theme that is customised just for your needs.
This has a few benefits. First, you have a site that is truly unique. It is a look that is made just for your company, meaning you can incorporate your logo and company colours into the design.
Secondly, it is a site that fits all of your needs in a clear way. While plugins can often be added to existing themes, they can look bad when done wrong. An experienced WordPress developer will know how to integrate the solutions you need, whether it’s a gallery, an e-commerce solution, a contact page, social media feeds, or just a great looking blog.
While the vast array of WordPress themes is part of what makes it such a great platform for so many different types of websites, it’s also what can put a lot of inexperienced users off. Don’t get overwhelmed, though. Speak to a professional for help and you’ll have an easy to maintain site that you’ll love!
