We are just a few days into the brand new year — and it is time for some quality roundup posts related to WordPress themes.

Carry on reading below to discover the top 5 WordPress themes for bloggers for 2019.

P.S. Click here to read more about the top free WordPress themes for 2019.

1. Elementor

Elementor Best Free WordPress Theme

Elementor is definitely on the first spot because it is free (making it a no-brainer) and it is the most intuitive WordPress website builder that doesn't costs a dime to install.

Of course, there is a paid version called Elementor Pro if you are looking for an all-in-one advanced WordPress theme builder.

By default, the Elementor free version is already sufficient for most WordPress website users and owners. It is easy to use and beginners will enjoy a low learning curve to totally master the power of drag and drop website builder.

Overall, Elementor is a great free WordPress theme that doesn't sucks and if you are running eCommerce on WordPress, I have good news for you,

Elementor integrates not only with WooCommerce, but along with hundreds of other third party tools without creating any conflicts!

2. Airi

Looking for a perfect (and free) WordPress theme for freelancers, agencies, startups, and small business?

You don't have to look any further — Airi is definitely a great theme especially for beginners.

What makes Aini an unique WordPress theme?

The Airi theme is fully integrated with Elementor and this means that you can use this WP theme on any type of website. With this integration, you will get a powerful drag and drop interface which helps you build landing pages that rocks.

3. Thrive Themes

Compare Thrive Themes To StudioPress

If you have been following my blog for sometime, you will notice that I talk about Thrive Themes a lot. 

P.S. Read about Thrive Themes review here.

As a matter of fact, there is no better premium WordPress theme that can match Thrive Themes and let me tell you why.

I used StudioPress back in 2004 and I am also their StudioPress Pro user (paid heftily for it). However, when I use Thrive Themes for the first time, I was in love with it.

Why Thrive Themes?

  • Comes with a full set of plugins and themes (learn more)
  • Comes with drag and drop builder
  • 24/7 and all year round support
  • Constant update with the latest codes
  • Clean coding
  • Doesn't impact website loading speed like other themes do

4. Divi

If you are looking for a WordPress theme for web developers, Divi is your only choice.

Why Divi?

For starters, Divi is an inbuilt drag and drop builder and allows you to create beautiful WordPress designs without coding skills.

More importantly, it doesn't limit you to the number of WordPress websites you can use Divi on. Everything is unlimited with Divi and it is a simple, one-time yearly or one-time lifetime license.

I even published a full review on Divi that you can read more about it here.

If you are looking for the top 5 WordPress themes for 2019, I recommend you to take a look at Divi today (here's an example website that I did with Divi Theme).

5. StudioPress

Last but not least, I am going to admit that I still love StudioPress themes. Even thought I no longer use it as much as I do in the past, this is still one of the most affordable WordPress themes in the market, especially in the premium WordPress theme world.

Here are some reasons why I recommend StudioPress themes:

  • Simple payment and charge (pay for single theme or one-time membership payment)
  • Super affordable (each child theme costs under $100)
  • Lifetime updates
  • Unlimited usage on any website
  • Lifetime support

Why is it important to choose the right WordPress theme?

Why I Switched From Divi Builder To Thrive Architect

The reason for this is simple — a WordPress theme represents who you are and how your website will perform in the eyes of many.

A good WordPress theme is going to help you a lot with conversions (take a look at Thrive Themes for example). 

Important Note

Finding for the right WordPress theme isn't really a walk in the park. More importantly, you shouldn't take it lightly. Most WordPress themes come with a simple design, some light codings for customization and that's pretty much what you will get. 

The problem starts when your website looks just like anyone else (which sucks).

Now, when you use WordPress themes like Elementor, Thrive Themes or Divi, that's when you can customize everything under the roof using the inbuilt intuitive drag and drop builder.

This means that your website is unique (and will always be) and you can create the design that you truly love — on both desktop and mobile version.

As a summary, it is important to choose the right WordPress theme especially when you are a blogger. You don't want to be using the same theme everyone else is using.

Need some help?

Elementor is a great choice for free drag and drop builders but the free version comes with some limitation.

If you are looking for a full-service WordPress theme, Thrive Themes and Divi are excellent choices to go with!
