55 of the Best Responsive WordPress Themes

Responsive design is obviously a popular topic in the web design industry right now, and WordPress continues to grow as one of the most popular content management systems. Many bloggers and site owners who are using WordPress are interested in having a responsive website, and the result is a quickly-increasing number of responsive themes that are available for WordPress.

In this post we’ll take a look at 55 responsive WordPress themes, including free and premium themes. The majority of the themes showcased here are premium. Although there are some good free responsive themes available, the time and effort required to create one is rather significant, so most of the good ones must be purchased. There are more free responsive themes available aside from the ones we’ve mentioned here, but we tried to showcase only the best ones regardless of whether they are free or premium.

    Many of these themes look awesome. I think Olya is my favorite. I also like Unsigned very much. I wonder, though, what happens with fixed size ad blocks in case of responsive themes.

  • aledesign.it, May 23, 2012

    REally good this psot…more interesting examples. Thanks for sharing

  • Cadeau ideetje, May 23, 2012

  • Adverse.co, May 23, 2012

  • Saya, May 24, 2012

    Agree with above. Some nice , some repeating same style- I think all can be used with a little tweak thanks

    Hi,
    Personally i use skeleton but not for wordpress just the css file sets i beleave that each one should code his own framework at the end you should personalize the shoosen framework so whay not code your own you can use a responsiv css framework like skeleton or 960grid system.

    So, you need either an admin panel framework. and many many bearr ;)

    GOOD LUCK

  • WP Themes Daily, May 31, 2012

    Modernize is probably the best among these themes.Clean design, solid color and awesome slider :D

  • Peter Luit, August 6, 2012

    Add also PageLines Framework to this list…..

  • Josh, August 8, 2012

    • Steven Snell, August 8, 2012

      Thanks for the suggestion Josh, but that theme wasn’t missed. The theme was released after this post was published.

  • Josh, September 3, 2012

    @Steven : Yup thanks, i realized this after posting my comment.

  • Jaco, December 10, 2012

    Really great themes, My favorite is PixelPower, but I found the other very interesting..
    Thanks so much for sharing it save me a lot of time.. when looking for a decent theme..

  • ankita, December 18, 2012

    I agree with Wp Themes daily. Mordernize is one to choose as it is like a “every occasion” theme. I sometimes get inspiration from these examples and create my own theme using Templatetoaster or other such tools

  • Virgil, March 12, 2013

    Great themes in there bro.Thanks for sharing!
