After spending some time with this theme, we could tell that it’s very well polished – The creators of the theme even created widgets and design elements that few consider One of the most impressive features is Ultra’s mega menu – It supports images, has a nice animation, and the spacing is well thought out to ensure users don’t ‘mis-click’ Most layouts and designs are also structured logically, even when non-standard design is used The gallery is also well equipped, and Ultra manages to make your screen feel much bigger than it really is, which is a testament to its ease of use From restaurants to gyms, and video games to law firms, Ultra’s pre-made designs look amazing for any industry

There are other themes highlighted on this list that provide a wider range of features and layout options, however, there aren’t many Ultra’s shop functionality is brilliant, well designed, and allows products to be displayed in the navigation menu Typically, themes struggle to cater to a lot of options on a small screens, but the Ultra theme manages to pull it off The main menu is easy to use with good sized buttons and multiple levels of navigation If you purchase the Ultra theme, you’ll get a bunch of useful add-on’s such as progress bars, timelines, and countdowns

Widgets can also be added straight to the main menu Ultra is a complete and well rounded theme that would suit a number of industries Up Next we have TheGem which scored an overall 9/10 With the same total score as Ultra, TheGem can hold its head high This theme has a myriad of features, and makes great use of animation and graphical elements Combine this with it’s impressive page load speed and we can see how it comfortably cemented its place in the top 3

Considering the amount of features and content, the fact that it scored a 79 for mobile and 92 for desktop on the Google Page Speed test is an impressive feat Making it the fastest theme on this list TheGem ships with a mega menu that has ample spacing between links and can also handle images The navigation is functional and easy to use which translates to an enjoyable user experience This theme comes with a number of well design layout options, appropriate for a number of different businesses and industries

The use of animation in this theme is spectacular, they feel perfectly timed and well thought out TheGem also manages to blend bright colors in a very balanced and deliberate way With no surprise, TheGem passes Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test with flying colors It also finds a neat way around the problems that come with a multi-tiered menus on mobile displays by flipping the menu over every time you go into a sub-category The only minor issue with mobile is that it can be a bit laggy at some places

In a list that has many themes that are packed with features, TheGem is one of only two that scores a perfect 10 for functionality It also has its own custom sliders (Revolution and Layer) – Each of which comes with some cool 2D and 3D animation effects to choose from And, in addition to the great selection of pre-designed layouts, it comes with a number of widgets and elements specific to its niche The last spot on the podium goes to Jupiter – with a 9 out of 10 This is one amazing theme The Jupiter theme feels polished and is packed full of features

It has a huge number of layouts, designs, page types and widgets to choose from The galleries do everything you could want them to do, and the theme doesn't skip a beat when it comes to design The theme is also a good example of the use of classy and readable serif fonts Jupiter is a multi-purpose theme and will easily fit any business or industry If we had to be picky, the mobile experience and page load speed could be slightly improved, but other than that this theme is top notch

Jupiter’s Google Page Speed desktop score of 81, is actually really solid, it’s only the mobile score of 61 that raises any concern, and even then it still outperforms the majority of themes on this list One of the most impressive characteristics of Jupiter is its ease of use, despite its enormous amount of features Furthermore, the designers and developers have really invested in the finer details, with every image and button rocking animated hover states, and images featuring a unique ‘zoom’ or ‘go to’ attributes This provides a great user experience where the visitor is never left guessing This theme comes with a number of diverse, pre-designed layouts to suit a number of different businesses and industries

With tasteful use of animation, modern typefaces, and good use of whitespace, this theme is sure to please even the most design conscious user Jupiter manages to adapt most of its features, widgets, and elements to smaller displays, and succeeds in providing a seamless user experience across all devices This extends to its eCommerce offering, which is well designed and functional on mobile The sheer number of widgets, layouts and design options available in Jupiter is simply staggering It comes with its own custom slideshow, called Edge that features all kinds of animations and pagination effects

There is also flip boxes, countdown, & milestones, moving images and tab sliders You also have several options for the homepage image animation such as fade in/out, horizontal curtain and zoom in or out Overall this theme knocks it out of the park, and is one of those themes that you will need to try hard to fault The next business WordPress theme is Consulting – which scored 9 out of 10 The Consulting theme has everything you would need for your business website From career pages to testimonials, and charts and project pages, you will find exactly what you’re looking for

There are a number of different corporate layout options to suit most tastes, it is easy to use, and has a lot to offer in terms of features It’s apparent that a lot of work went into this theme – We like that almost everything moves or has hover states which makes the site interactive This theme nails the corporate look, and for anyone in consulting or professional services, this theme will be hard to beat The mobile version also handles the content well, ensuring your business is represented well on all devices The next business WordPress theme is Divi – Earning an 8 out of 10 Divi is a lean and versatile theme – This means that it has a vast array of customization options, widgets, layout choices, and features

The default design for Divi suits a modern startup or business incredibly well, and given Divi’s popularity, you are able to get access to a number of free designs and layouts We won’t even try and list all of its features but rest assured that it has everything you would need There are a number of custom modules including bars, counters, and pricing tables which are excellent features for a business website To learn more about this theme, check out one of our free tutorials on the OHKLYN website or YouTube Channel Up next we have Infinite – Landing an 8 out of 10 Infinite is a very attractive theme – What we love is that the theme finds a great balance between creative and modern day business

It would fit a small design, or creative services company perfectly Infinite has an incredible amount of layout options and variations for every type of page, content, and navigation There are also different types of quirky “nice to haves” like skill percentage bars/circles for rating various options The typefaces and well chosen, and easy to read To top it off, Infinite has one of the coolest galleries we have ever seen

Unfortunately, its only negative is that not everything translates perfectly to mobile which is a huge letdown, but that’s being fairly critical All and all, Infinite is a great theme The next business WordPress theme is Narcos – with an 8 out of 10 Don’t worry, this site isn’t geared for drug cartels! Well I mean, it could be The Narcos theme leans more towards the creative side and would be perfect for designers, photographers, or a business in a creative industry The only thing to me mindful of is it’s page load speed, but we feel it makes up for this in other areas

The layout options are all beautiful and make good use of typography, design elements, and animations With its unique layouts, solid mobile experience, and eCommerce functionality, Nacros could be a great option for your business website The next theme is Venture – with a score of 8 out of 10 Venture is a difficult theme to comment on – Everything that it does, it does really well Navigation is standard and intuitive and the overall design feels welcoming and looks professional It also has a shop with Woocommerce support, and a nice gallery feature

Our only concern is that the page load speed isn’t great, the design may not appeal to everyone, and the reduced number of layouts compared to some of its competitors may present a challenge That being said, it’s an easy to use theme, with a great mobile experience, and most of the features you’ll need in a business website We then have Elbrus – rated 8 out of 10 While some of the other high-end offerings on this list suffer slightly from all the content on their individual pages, Elbrus manages to stay clean and neat throughout As such, we feel this is one of the most well-designed themes on this list It has a nice balance between modern, professional, and simple

Two things you should consider though are its extremely small text size (especially in its blog section), which can be amended in the customizer, and its slow desktop Google PageSpeed score of 37, which isn’t as easy a fix The theme however, has a nice built-in gallery, is easy to use, and responds well on mobile The next business WordPress theme is Jevelin – scoring an 8 out of 10 What we love about Javelin is all the tricks it has up its sleeve – One example is its image slider with 3D animation effect that looks super sleek The theme also has a great blend of fun and professionalism, that many of themes on this list seem to get right It would be nice, if they had spent more time on developing layout options, because currently it’s a little scarce

Overall, the Javelin theme is an attractive looking theme with pleasing animations and has a cool one-page design that users will appreciate Up next is Montblanc – with a 7 out of 10 The Montblanc theme would be perfect for a design or creative business, as a portfolio site, or for a working professional It could also suit sophisticated industries like architecture, interior design, or an online brand Overall, it is a very elegant and sleek site that just needs more layout options and widgets for it to have scored higher in our list The layout options it has though, are designed to appeal to a number of different tastes (especially the homepage layouts)

Page load speed is a concern, however the mobile experience is great, and the inclusion of eCommerce functionality makes this theme incredibly desirable The next business WordPress theme is Infinity Pro – scoring 7 out of 10 The Infinity Pro theme is the best offering from StudioPress so far on this list While largely the same, it beats both the others in design and general aesthetic Upon scrolling, your eyes are greeted with graceful fade-in’s and animations The theme makes good use of white space to come across neat and feels very professional

It still doesn’t offer much variety in alternate layouts or designs, but what’s currently on offer looks great Another positive about this theme is that it has a great mobile menu that users will truly appreciate Built on the Genesis framework and eCommerce enabled, this theme is stylish and has a lot to offer We then have Zerif Pro – scored 7 out of 10 Zerif Pro is another theme that falls into that category of “everything you need” The design looks professional and stylish and the fonts are modern and easy to read

There is also a shop with e-commerce support for those wanting to include an online store Our concern is that this theme does a lot of things well, but nothing overly great Nonetheless, the mobile experience overall is good, the navigation is intuitive and easy to use, and this theme has most of the features you’ll need to be successful The next business WordPress theme is Struct – Earning a 7 out of 10 Struct is a good-looking, professional WordPress theme that will suit most businesses It scored consistently well across the board in terms of speed, ease of use, design, mobile responsiveness, and functionality

However, to be critical, the theme doesn’t support eCommerce, and it has very few layout options for users to choose from Although you may not have access to the tools in the online demo, it has some pretty impressive chart and graphic creation tools included in the dashboard that may be incredibly well suited to certain types of business, and is quite a unique feature The next business WordPress theme is Executive Pro – Garnering a 7 out of 10 Executive Pro is a comprehensive WordPress theme for corporate, executive, or consulting websites It has more layout options and widgets available that makes it more ‘business oriented’ for the user However, the theme lacks a little of the design prowess that we’ve come to expect from the team at StudioPress

This design is very corporate orientated, which may suit certain types of users It is easy to use, and features intuitive navigation, that translates well to other devices Up next is Koehn – with a 7 out of 10 If we haven’t made it clear enough in our other reviews, we love CSSIgniter! Koehn is a solid theme, however, it isn’t on the same level as some of their other themes Again, they have managed to come up with a beautiful design that is elegant and practical, however, this theme could benefit from more layout options and features The mobile experience is simple and functional which provides a great user experience

Overall, it is a good theme, and scored reasonably well in our page speed tests It features some unique layouts, and would be well suited to an architectural firm, or other creative services company Next on the list is Atmosphere Pro – scoring a 7 out of 10 Atmosphere Pro, is a clean, modern, and stylish WordPress theme for business It’s limited in the number of layouts it ships with, however, it features a very well designed and practical grid / box layout on the homepage, and includes a nice combination of typefaces, icons, and hover states to deliver a well rounded design It’s simplicity is what makes is great, but also impacts it’s score as this translates to a lack of options for users

It does lack features, however it is well designed, easy to use, and provides a solid mobile experience The next business WordPress theme is The Core – with a 7 out of 10 The Core is Themefuse’s flagship multi-purpose WordPress theme and is packed with features They have created 20+ custom designs and layouts using just the theme customizer settings This means you get to a diverse range of pre-designed website layouts out of the box, without needing to know any code eCommerce enabled, with demo content installed, and a visual page builder, this theme will be a great fit for a lot of applications

With all these features, the only thing that lets this theme down is its page load space Other than that though, this theme looks great on mobile and features easy to use, and intelligent navigation The next theme is Digital Pro – rated 7 out of 10 As you can tell from the score, the Digital Pro theme is almost a carbon copy of the Atmosphere Pro theme as both themes come from StudioPress It has a nice design and is extremely easy to use, however, its features and layout options are lacking It has a slightly different look compared to the Atmosphere Pro theme, as it incorporates some bright colors for a nice dose of contrast

Similarly to the Atmosphere Pro theme, it also plays heavily on the white and gray combination, and once again, its simplicity is its great strength and weakness What it does, it does well and will no doubt be a great fit for certain projects And in the last available spot is FinVertex – scoring a 6 out of 10 The FinVertex theme is aimed mostly to those in the financial sector and/or investment/financial advice space Its look is very modern and professional, but unfortunately lacks some of the standard navigational tools we are used to such as, a roll-down menu This theme is mobile responsiveness, and provides an even better user experience on a tablet and mobile

If traveling investors/businessmen are your target audience, then this theme is a great option for you And those are the 20 best WordPress Themes for Business in 2017 & 2018 Remember that you’ll find the links to all of the themes covered in this video in the description box below, and on the OHKLYN blog post which can be found at OHKLYN o-h-k-l-y-n com We’ll also add a list of the top WordPress theme providers to the description below, for you to explore – just in case none of the top 20 stood out for you
