If you use WordPress for ecommerce, there’s a good chance you’re using the WooCommerce plugin to power it.
But there’s a lot that needs to happen in code to get it to look just right. There might template changes needed, and there is a ton of styling needed to make their elements match your theme.
Fortunately, WooCommerce also sells some themes that are built and designed with WooCommerce in mind. They have everything you need to install and go without creating much code.
So let’s go through a few of the best ones you can buy on their site.
Hotel is a modern theme that really packs a punch, but loads quick and doesn’t overload the reader.
It’s built primarily for those who are selling time or services — especially hotels, Bread and Breakfasts and other accommodations.
I love the homepage of the theme. You can easily show off who you are and what you do, but keep to a digestible amount for the viewer. The “product” page offers you a great chance to show off the venue and allow users to book a time. It’s all extremely visually appealing without losing any functionality.
My only complaint is that it really is only for time or service sellers. If you’re selling products out of your storefront, you might have a hard time adapting it to meet your needs.
But other than that, it’s a great looking theme that can help small businesses in that service area.
Tell the Story of Your Small Business With a Website
Every small business has a story. And every small business needs a website to help tell it. A website allows people to find you online, serves as a home base for any marketing effort and can help you tell the story of your business. So if you’re ready to give your business its first website or are ready to take your site to the next level, let’s get started on making that happen.Let’s Get Started on Telling Your Story With a Website
If you’re a fan of Hotel, but sell products more, Threads is probably the WooCommerce theme for you.
Like Hotel, Threads is very visual. It starts with the hero image on the homepage and continues through out. The shop page is exclusively all images until you hover a product.
The product page is extremely clean and I love the styling of the tabs in the product information. It’s a great way to show it off and allow the customer to learn more about what they might be buying. And it’s all pretty clear where they need to go.
My only issue here is that if you don’t watch your image sizes, you could be in for a long wait for pages to load. Image compression is very key with this theme.
Still, if you can manage your images and page load times, Threads is a great theme to use for your online store.
If you’re a fan of the style of Threads, but don’t like all of the big images, Homestore might be the one for you.
Homestore also uses a lot of images, but in more of a traditional way. There’s a lot more white space with clear separation. The product pages are simple, but very easy to read and see more about the product, which is a dream for a customer.
Also, the header menus make it easy for potential customers to look through your inventory based off any number of categories and the like. It’s a great feature if you offer a ton of products.
And really, I don’t . It might not be your style or it just might be what you’re looking for. In any case, I think it’ll be really hard to go wrong with Homestore.
So there you have it. Three WooCommerce themes that might be a good fit for your business’ online store. But if you want to see more, I highly recommend checking out their themes page to find just what you want and need.
