Starting fresh with a new theme

Perhaps you don't want to keep your old website design and would prefer to make a completely fresh start. If that's the case, then a new WordPress theme is in order. When selecting a new design, there are certain things that you will need to consider. Do you need one, two, or three columns? Is the theme that you're considering widget-ready? Is the stylesheet easy-to-read, so that you can make customizations if needed?

It's best to take the time to find a high-quality theme that you will be happy using for years to come, rather than choosing a sub-standard theme only to discover a few months later that it doesn't meet your needs.

There are a myriad of free and premium themes on the Internet, and it can be a bit of a chore to find the best ones if you don't know where to look. So, rather than aimlessly searching for a theme, you should begin your search at the following sites.
