Websites Using the Astra Theme in 2021
It uses Astra for the base theme and, as you might have guessed from the types of templates they sell, it uses Elementor for the page designs.
Schema Pro is kind of cheating because it’s another product from Brainstorm Force (the makers of the Astra theme). But if you want to see how the developers put together a combo of Astra and Elementor, this one is a good example.
As far as we can tell, Netweeb is a web design agency. And while we can’t read the language, we don’t need to in order to enjoy the web design!
This one has a neat smooth scroll effect with lots of little animations and details. Astra is the base theme, and Netweeb uses Elementor on top for all of the other design details.
IE Woodworking is a nice simple site focused on one goal – getting people to fill out that big pickup or delivery form.
Again – not much going on here. But a good example is that you don’t necessarily need to have a busy site to meet your business goals.
Like the previous two themes, this one uses Elementor on top of the Astra theme.
Duke Richards Interiors
This one has some great imagery along with a lengthy and detailed homepage. The header is also pretty unique – it’s invisible at the top of the page, and then sticky once you start scrolling down.
Like the other three, Duke Richards Interiors is built with Elementor on top of Astra (you’ll see this duo a lot).
This one from Jeffrey Betts is super minimal – no fancy hero images or videos. We like the style, though. And it’s another great example of how you can make Astra “get out of the way” if desired.
This one also uses Elementor for the design elements.
This one has something to do with labeling and artificial intelligence. We’re not really sure what they do – but we like the site! Refine is another Astra theme example that uses Elementor on top of the theme.
Wunderwuzzi Roboter has a pretty neat homepage (hover over the robots for some fun). The page content is built with Elementor, with Astra providing the rest of the functionality.
Who doesn’t love bacon delivered on a monthly schedule? Bacon Scout does just that, with a WooCommerce store built on the Astra theme and Elementor.
Chesapeake Beach Water Park
Chesapeake Beach Water Park has a great-looking design that definitely shows the flexibility of using Astra as your base theme. To handle the page layouts, Chesapeake Beach Water Park uses Elementor, as well.
Reef Tank Resource
Reef Tank Resource has a nice implementation of Astra’s sticky header functionality to go along with a design that does a great job complementing the niche. As with most of the others, it’s using Elementor to do all the heavy lifting for the page layouts.
Henry Winslow Yoga
An awesome clean Astra example for a yoga teacher, Henry Winslow. This one does a great job of communicating everything important, while not having any distracting elements in the way. Again, Elementor does the page design lifting.
JamCore is some type of fitness site! We don’t understand what’s happening, but we’re guessing there’s an app involved. What we do know is that it has a nice clean Astra design and makes good use of Astra’s transparent and sticky header options!
This one probably deserves to be higher – but Adam from WPCrafter uses Astra to power the WPCrafter site. He also uses Elementor for most of the designs – though I think he also mentioned he has Beaver Builder, too.
Entact is a Geotechnical Construction and provides Remediation Services. This site uses a custom theme made specifically for this niche. This one uses a single-page layout to make it easier to see what they are all about.
University Students’ Council of Western
The student council from Western University uses Astra’s custom theme. The simple, single-page layout is perfect to showcase who the members are. Plus, you can easily see what the council’s objectives are for the university.
Kep or Kessler-Ellis Products provides industrial services. They have also offered electromechanical devices for the past 50 years.
Car Central is a Brazilian company that provides automated parts both in cars and motorcycles. The single-page layout used showcases the history of Car Central with its partners over the years.
That wraps up our list of the best Astra theme examples in the wild!
As you can see, all of these themes still opt to pair Astra with a page builder, which is really how it’s best used.
If you want to get started with Astra, we’d definitely recommend the Pro version because it gives you a lot more control over global styles, as well as additional header options and plenty more.
