12 Best Weebly Themes (Free or Premium, Responsive or Custom)

Ricardo Yepes Geron loves sea turtles — so much so that he decided to dedicate his life to saving them from extinction. Ricardo serves as director of Fundación Yepez AC — a nonprofit foundation his parents founded to preserve sea turtles and their ecosystem.

To spread the word about his foundation’s efforts, Ricardo knew he would need a solid website with a professional look. And he found the answer in one of Weebly’s many themes.

“Weebly allowed us to create a professional, beautiful, and functional website in a very short time,” Ricardo said.

Whether you’re a turtle lover, like Ricardo, or an entrepreneur looking to broadcast your business online, Weebly has a host of themes to suit your needs. Here, we’ll take a look at 12 of the best.

Free Weebly Themes (1 – 3)

For more than a decade, Weebly has allowed more than 40 million people to easily set up business and personal sites online. The web builder provides a wide array of compelling themes for its users, and the good news is most of them are offered for free as part of Weebly’s basic plans.

Site owners have a lot to choose from when looking to set up a Weebly site. There are free designs to complement pretty much any subject area. Template.net recently highlighted the many features included in a number of Weebly’s free themes, giving a pretty good view into what Weebly has to offer.

Our aim is to break down some of the best features of what we found to be the top three free themes. Don’t let the cost fool you — these designs are stunning and provide you with complete control over your content.

1. Haberdasher

If you’re looking to start an eCommerce site with a bit of flair, Haberdasher might be the theme for you. Haberdasher sites are easily navigable so your customers can browse through merchandise or directly search for specific products.

Premium Weebly Themes (4 – 6)

While Weebly’s free themes provide site owners with compelling, professionally designed templates, there are themes built through Weebly’s developer tools that some web designers offer at a premium.

These themes are not housed on Weebly but are distributed by the developers as zipped files to users who can then incorporate them into their sites. Baamboo Studio and Luminous Themes are two of the top design houses specializing in providing Weebly users with these custom themes. Let’s take a look at some of their best work.

4. Infiniti

Baamboo Studio’s Infiniti theme gives users the ability to set up their sites exactly as they envision them. The theme comes complete with four customizable menu styles, flexible color options, and 11 different page layouts.

Infiniti will set you back $40, but, when you look at what you’d be saving on add-ons and other features, it could be worth the extra cash. The menu styles and page layouts that come with Infiniti normally run in the $80 neighborhood.

5. Craft

Another marriage of art and professionalism, Baamboo Studio’s Craft theme provides an effective design for businesses to showcase their message and products. The theme is bold, giving site owners the ability to display full-screen, high-resolution imagery.

Luminous Themes created Weebly’s overall best-selling theme in Ethereal. This multi-purpose theme employs features, such as parallax effects, gorgeous design, and specialty pages, that provide unique visitor experiences.
