Top 3 business WordPress theme reviews

Measuring the page load speed, ease of use, attractiveness of design, mobile responsiveness, and extensiveness of functionality, we have ranked the top 20 best WordPress themes for business. Below are the themes that made the top 3.

Jevelin is a multipurpose WordPress theme with over 40 full website demos mostly geared for different types of businesses from creative startups to dentistry practices to more corporate online ventures. For a smaller library, Jevelin nevertheless presents some superb templates with varied designs. However, even their more novel themes are still adaptable and easy to customize to your niche with a few generic themes thrown in for good measure.

Jevelin also comes with the excellent WPBakery to build out your website pages. Although Jevelin doesn’t feature the biggest collection of header styles, layouts, or other elements, all the basics are accounted for and feels well thought out and designed. For example, we love the fading and loading animations built into the blog, portfolio, and store layouts.

The mobile responsiveness feels similarly well-made and provides an excellent user-experience. The only slight downside is the average mobile page load speeds while the desktop loading time is among the best.

No wonder it’s the best WordPress theme for business.

The Gem is another not-to-be-overlooked multipurpose business theme with almost 100 immaculately designed full websites, and over 25 business-specific, demos. From construction to cryptocurrency startups to logistics – The Gem has it all. The Gem’s demos really stand out for their sheer quality, awesome designs, and variety of styles.

The Gem also shines when it comes to versatile headers/top menu bars with 20+ built-in options with diverse layouts. Not to mention over 60 content elements with over 250 different styles. It also features advanced shopping tools with size charts, previews, and policy or terms elements.

You can further customize your theme with handy shortcodes and the WPBakery page builder which is included for free. The Gem also has superb mobile responsiveness with pages that feel tailor-made for smaller screens. To top it off, it’s also among the best when it comes to page load times.

Ultra is Themify’s flagship multipurpose WordPress theme. Ultra comes with around 30 full demo websites fully-loaded with demo content and over 60-page layouts. A wide range of businesses will be able to find a demo for them with everything from coffee shops to app developers to law firms accounted for.

Like Divi, the styling for each demo is unique with different fonts, layouts, colors, etc. That being said, they aren’t quite as imaginative as some other themes on this list.

One regard in which Ultra shines its when it comes to customizing your header. There are over 17 header/page styles and you also have more options to customize your header’s styling without resorting to CSS.

Ultra also features an incredibly powerful page builder that allows you to customize every inch of every page. However, it might not be as intuitive to all as the Divi or Elementor page builder.

The performance of your theme will depend somewhat on which demo you go with. However, it ranges from above average to excellent.

Additional business WordPress theme reviews

Below are the WordPress business themes that made the top 21, but missed out on our top 3 spots.

Divi is a multipurpose WordPress theme that needs little introduction. Divi features over 100 free full demo websites with over 70 specifically for business. Each demo is distinct in its appearance, niche, and overall design with incredible demo content.

It’s one of the comprehensive themes with a ton of elements like call-to-action blocks, contact forms, galleries, testimonials, and more. One of Divi’s show stopping features is the Divi page builder. It’s one of the best in terms of balancing customizability and control with an enjoyable and accessible experience.

The one complaint leveled against Divi is that its headers are too generic and hard to customize.

Despite being a “heavy” theme, it scores an excellent 92 for desktop loading times. Generally, Divi’s themes have outstanding mobile responsiveness, although some elements are too elongated.

Much like our oversized galactic neighbor with the same name, this is one massive WordPress theme. There are over 290 website templates with around 30 business templates. And, over 100 block templates with around 20 header, 20 footer, and tonnes of section templates. And, a number of other tools to help you build your website like Elementor,popup, form, and menu builders.

Although you’ll find templates with unique designs and layouts, they aren’t quite as attractive or interesting as those of The Gem, for example. The templates are also great for niche businesses, but Jupiter should’ve included a few more generic corporate templates which would be easier to customize.

It also features user-friendly portfolio, blog, and shop layouts although they could have more built-in functionality. An excellent desktop pagespeed score of 94 plus solid mobile responsiveness rounds off this strong contender.

Monstroid² is TemplateMonster’s flagship multipurpose WordPress and comes loaded with features, website demos, layouts, and more. In fact, with over 300 full website demos, you shouldn’t have any problem finding the perfect theme for your niche, even if it’s running a coworking space business.

Despite the huge number, the themes are almost all unique and engaging. There are also more than 1,000 layout pages to mix and match. With the JetTricks, JetTabs, and JetBlog plugins, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to customizing elements for your pages.

Monstroid also sticks to its promise of being a lightweight theme despite all its content as one of the top performers in terms of page loading times. There’s also very little to complain about when it comes to mobile responsiveness although it’s not perfect for all their templates.

Although a multipurpose theme, Infinite focuses on online business and ecommerce websites. With over 30 full demos, there are a good mix of more generic and customizable as well as niche-specific templates. Some of the niche templates even cater for nursery homes, transportation, and gardening businesses.

Stylewise, there isn’t really anything to complain about with attractive and modern designs as well as easy-on-the-eyes animations.

With 54 design elements, 44 pre-built blocks, and 21 header styles, beginners will find it easy and flexible to start building their site – without being overwhelmed by the options. The Infinite V2 page builder is also beginner-friendly, although it’s not as powerful as Divi, Ultra, Elementor, or WPBakery.

Unfortunately, Infinity only scored a 70 for desktop and poor 27 for mobile pagespeed. That being said, there is nothing wrong with the actual user experience on mobile.

Mitech is another WordPress theme aimed specifically at business in the IT sector, from startups to agencies to service providers. Mitech only really has one website demo with various page layouts for home, blog, company, and even case study pages.

The overall design is professional and versatile with well-structured layouts and legible fonts. Mitech also comes with a number of premium plugins with useful online business tools like MailChimp and WooCommerce as well as design tools like WPBakery Page Builder and Revolution Slider. It also comes with a comprehensive collection of page elements.

Mitech does have a slight disadvantage when it comes to page speed with below average performance. That being said, the mobile-friendliness of this theme is on point.

Webify is a multi-purpose WordPress theme made for Elementor. With just over 50 fully pre-designed layouts, and 20 over business-specific demo sites, it has a solid, but not extensive, library.

The templates are modern and eye-pleasing with a good amount of animations, galleries, and unique graphical elements. The only downside is that most of the templates aren’t very distinctive. The mobile versions also don’t feel quite as well-thought-out.

With over 20 header styles (with mega menus), online store and portfolio layouts, and the Elementor page builder it’s got everything you need to start building and customizing your website. On top of built-in features, Webify also comes with 7 premium plugins like Slider Revolution, WP AMP, and Ninja Popup – which is great value for money.

Performance is a bit of a two-way street with a solid desktop but below average mobile speeds.

After to giants like Divi, Ultra, and Monstroid Avada is probably the next most popular multipurpose WordPress theme. The theme comes with over 60 demo sites, although there aren’t many corporate or business-specific designs. Some of the demos are also not as inspired as they could be, although they are very easy to use.

There are a huge number of features in terms of adjusting theme options as well as the Fusion slider, third-party integrations, and an engaging footer building tool.

Avada now also comes with the Fusion Page Builder which is a decent, if comparatively simple, page builder with a focus on beginner friendliness. An impressive feature is the ability to easily build some conditional logic into your pages.

There also isn’t anything to complain about when it comes to how this theme responds on mobile devices, while mobile loading times could be better.

Agency is a straightforward theme that feels tailor-made for agencies in the marketing or design niche. The demo website is extremely user-friendly with an uplifting design. There aren’t too many options when it comes to headers, page layouts, or page elements but it does cover the basics.

Unfortunately, there is no page builder but the easy to use theme settings allow you to quickly adjust how your theme looks and functions. In general, building a website with Agency is a hassle-free process. There are also handy shortcodes as well as some header effects like parallax scrolling or zoom out.

This lightweight theme is the fastest loading on this list, particularly for mobile devices with a score of 84 for mobile and 98 for desktop.

With over 460 full website demos, and over 300 business demos, Bridge has by far the largest collection of templates on this list with just about every industry being represented. The themes’ quality will vary but, for the most part, they’re good-looking and work well.

Once you’ve picked a theme, you can also choose between a large variety of page layouts for your blog, portfolio, or store pages as well as 18 different header styles. While there’s nothing too memorable about the designs, they provide an excellent base to build a unique business website from.

Bridge also comes with both Elementor and WPBaker as well $100 worth of other WordPress plugins, like the Revolution Slider.

Despite how Bridge shines in other regards, it needs some work when it comes to page loading times. However, mobile responsiveness is good to go.

X Theme only comes with around 10 website demos which are mostly aimed at small business owners with content for law firms, bed and breakfasts, and agencies. The available demos aren’t the most exciting, but they’re welcoming and easy to use which suits small to medium businesses.

However, X does come with a few unique tools to streamline the website building process. For example, like Stacks – which allows you to switch between designs with a click -, global templates and content blocks, an easy to use layout manager tool, and more.

One of X Theme’s strongest features is the 20+ plugins it ships with. These include both third-party and Themeco plugins with a ton of handy features for building and maintaining a website, like the Cornerstone page builder.

In terms of page load times and mobile responsiveness, X Theme is decent, but not exceptional.

Digital is a modern, easy to use, and attractive theme tailor-made for small-to-medium agencies of all kinds. Although it’s a theme, it comes a modest 9 homepage, 3 blog, and 3 pricing page layouts. Like other MyThemeShop themes, it doesn’t include a page builder but does integrate seamlessly with Elementor.

Digital’s design is clean, uncomplicated, and refreshing. The only criticism we have is that some sections can feel a little bare. However, a plus point is that the demo would be easy to reimagine for whatever business you could need it for.

Like other MyThemeShop themes, Digital is exceptionally lightweight and aces just about every page speed test. However, while there is nothing explicitly wrong with it, the mobile responsiveness could do with some more refinement.

If you run a tech startup, then Sassico is a WordPress theme developed specifically for your needs. Although niche-specific, there are still a number of full single and multi page website demos to choose from. They all have a similar look and feel typical of the modern startup business website – colorful, engaging, and with plenty of whitespace.

The themes also come with fun animated effects when users scroll through a page or mouse over certain elements. Instead of an overwhelming number of page layouts and elements, Sassico focused on what startups are most likely to need. For example, team, FAQ, and pricing pages as well as charts, client logos, and hotspot page elements.

Mobile responsiveness varies from theme to theme but generously looks and works pretty well. The biggest concern is the page load times which are in the lower half for this list.

Arquito is an exceptionally sleek theme aimed at sophisticated industries like architecture, finances, and interior design. The theme features some exciting and unique animations on page load and scrolling, like blur-in, parallax, and zoom effects. It’s an undeniably breathtaking theme with few contenders when it comes to visuals.

However, it doesn’t really cater for businesses outside of the niches just mentioned. The demo content is also a bit too niche-specific and it doesn’t come with as many website demos, page layouts, or custom elements as other themes. That being said, it does come with a convenient range of stylistic variations like light and dark, minimal, panoramic, or grid designs.

If you want a memorable website browsing experience, look no further.

Unfortunately, all these fireworks means Arquito is subpar when it comes to page loading performance.

Pets are something different, aimed at the animal lovers out there. It’s happy-go-lucky theme that’s easy to identify with the warm feeling we get whenever we think of our furry companions. As you might guess, it’s the perfect theme for a Vet, shelter, personal pet blog, or even a shop with pet toys or food.

Rounded corners, drop shadows, and light colors contribute to its cheerful look and feel.

Like other MyThemeShop themes, it’s a pretty straightforward theme that website owners will find incredibly easy to use. Although it doesn’t ship with a free builder, it integrates seamlessly with Elementor.

Although nothing exceptional, the theme does respond relatively well on mobile.

Arrosa is a multipurpose WordPress theme by Qode Interactive with a modest collection of 12 full website demos. It’s not the most comprehensive WordPress theme in terms of features and layout options, but it does come with some stunning designs with some unique visual identities.

Most of the demos seem purpose-built for creative or digital agencies with modern, colorful, and user-friendly designs. Pink, black, and white feature predominantly. The pages feel alive and dynamic with a ton of animations sprinkled in everywhere.

Arrosa does need some further work in terms of page load speed optimization with below-average scores for mobile and desktop. However, the mobile responsiveness is fairly solid.

With avid use of grayscale, Mont Blanc is a suave-looking business theme by Tesla Themes. It’s also incredibly user-friendly with a simple and clean UI. There are 4 different homepage layouts, that include a parallax scrolling option.

You can also incorporate portfolios, blogs, or shops (with Woocommerce integration) into your website, although they aren’t as feature-rich as some of the other themes.

Like Tesla Theme’s other themes, it doesn’t ship with too many extra features. While this does limit your flexibility somewhat, it does make it very easy to build a website with this theme, especially since the designs are easy to repurpose for your needs.

The page speed could be improved with a score of 73 for desktop and 42 for mobile. The mobile responsiveness is solid on tablet but not as great on mobile phones.
