THE 10 BEST THEMES FOR YOUR SHOPIFY WEBSHOP

There are 4500+ themes for Shopify and as a Partner and one of five Shopify Experts in Denmark, we have worked with more than 450 of these.

 

There are many good themes, but unfortunately also some less good ones.

At Shopify, a theme is a template that determines how your webshop looks and works. Different themes therefore have different styles and layouts, and therefore of course they also give your customers different experiences.

 

And while it may seem a bit exaggerated to spend several hours picking the right theme, imagine a webshop selling spa products. Here, the feeling should be calm and relaxed, while it should be more energetic if electronics are sold.

 

So you need to choose a theme or customize a theme that defines the basic look and functionality you want for your webshop.

 

Of course, you can also customize your theme settings so that you can get, for example, the content, the layout, the style, the language and the colors that match your vision. And should it happen that there is no setting for the change you want, you can change the theme code - here, however, it is a good idea to have knowledge of, among other things. HTML and CSS.

 

And we can help you with that!

 

To make it more manageable, you will find below our bid on the 10 best Shopify Themes.

How to choose the right theme

Shopify's theme store thus contains a wide range of different themes. Some of them are free, and others you have to pay for - for example, if they have been developed by a third-party designer.

 

When you want to make sure that you choose the right theme for your webshop, you should first and foremost focus on the features that you do not want to do without. You can use the search field and for example search for 'Page with frequently asked questions'. Then you will see a page with all the themes that contains a 'Frequently Asked Questions Page'.

 

You can search more specifically by segmenting and refining your search results using the filters.

 

You can also sort by industry to see the themes that are primarily used within, for example, the fashion industry.

 

If after a while you find out that you have chosen the wrong theme anyway, you can add a new one to your Shopify administrator. This means that you can add more themes to your account, trying out new themes, maintaining seasonal versions of your current theme, or testing changes to your theme.

 

The number of themes you can add to your account depends on your subscription. For example, you can have up to 20 themes associated with a Shopify subscription.

 

And there is no need to fear deleting a theme. You can easily manage your various themes. This means you can switch between those that are live in your webshop, you can make backups that you want to customize, and you can remove a theme that is no longer in use.
