Looking for the best premium WordPress theme companies? In this post, we’ve collected 25+ of our favorite premium theme shops, in no particular order. Let’s get right to the themes!
1. Elegant Themes
When you purchase an Elegant Themes membership, you don’t just get access to the premium themes, but you also get access to Elegant Themes’ premium plugins which include Monarch, Bloom, and a plugin version of the Divi Builder.
CSSIgniter is a popular premium theme shop that sells 74+ themes for everything from multipurpose business use to specific niches like video blogging, hotels, travel, etc.
EasyThemePacks doesn’t make WordPress themes in the traditional sense of the word. Rather, they make premium Elementor templates that you can use as the foundation for your site. Pair them with a page builder-friendly theme and have some fun!
Ok, GeneratePress isn’t really a shop so much as a single premium theme. But it is the theme that we use here at WPLift so we’d be remiss if we didn’t include GeneratePress on this list of premium WordPress theme companies.
Check out our full GeneratePress theme review to learn more.
MyThemeShop is a very popular WordPress development company. Beyond a number of plugins like WP Review Pro and the brand new Rank Math SEO plugin, MyThemeShop also sells over 100 premium themes.
Their most popular theme is Schema, but they also have plenty of other well-known offerings.
Themify makes a variety of WordPress themes, most/all of which are built on their drag-and-drop Themify Builder plugin. That means you’ll be able to use visual, drag-and-drop design to customize the theme’s demo content.
ThemeFusion is most notably the developer of Avada, the best-selling WordPress theme at ThemeForest. Instead of making different themes, they channel their efforts into making different demo sites for Avada.
TeslaThemes has a big collection of niche premium WordPress themes for pretty much any use. You can also get access to all of their themes via a club membership, including an option that gets you lifetime access.
Pixelgrade is the shop beyond some truly gorgeous themes. They made the news for taking advantage of ThemeForest’s move to author-driven pricing to price their PILE theme at $225. Their other themes are often $100+, but I think it’s worth it for the design quality.
aThemes is probably best-known for its Sydney business theme, which has a popular free version at WordPress.org. Beyond that, you’ll find plenty of other niche themes.
If you’re a lifestyle blogger, Bluchic is one of the finest purveyors of “feminine WordPress themes”. I’m not sure how a theme can be feminine, but that’s what they call it!
14. Thrive Themes
Thrive Themes sells a collection of conversion-focused themes and plugins. I actually find their plugins to be more valuable than their themes, but their themes are still pretty popular, especially with affiliate marketers.
WPZOOM makes a variety of niche WordPress themes for everything from food sites to photography and multipurpose themes. Currently, they have ~44 different themes to choose from.
16. Create And Code
Create and Code makes some great-looking optimized WordPress themes, primarily to be used for businesses. Their StartRight theme is a good all-around option, and then they have dedicated options for medicine, legal, and more.
They also have a great blogging theme, if that’s more your speed.
Meks sells a wide range of premium WordPress themes, covering everything from magazine themes to themes for travel blogs, personal blogs, and lots more.
Meks also offers plenty of free themes in addition to the premium offerings.
Templatic is a popular premium WordPress theme company with over 90+ different themes on offer. One of their most well-known themes is the Directory theme, which helps you…you guessed it – create a directory.
19. The Theme Foundry
The Theme Foundry will always hold a special place in my heart because I used one of their themes to launch my first-ever writing portfolio website. I’ve since moved on to GeneratePress, which you saw above.
The Theme Foundry has a variety of great-looking themes for publishers, as well as the Make theme, which is designed to be multipurpose and easy to customize (Make is what I used when I was getting started).
20. Brainstorm Force / Astra
21. Graph Paper Press
Graph Paper Press is a premium WordPress theme company that has a really great minimalist aesthetic across all of its themes. A lot of the themes are targeted towards artists and photographers, though anyone can use them.
Press75 makes some really gorgeous WordPress themes that cover a wide variety of niches. They also have some really unique designs that you won’t see elsewhere, like the Cards theme.
23. Obox Themes
Obox Themes has been around since all the way back in 2008, so they definitely have plenty of experience to bring to bear on creating WordPress themes. They also make themes for WordPress.com users, if you’re using the .com version instead of self-hosted WordPress.
24. Nimbus Themes
Nimbus Themes makes some great-looking themes with a bias towards lifestyle niches. For example, you’ll find plenty of food and fashion blog themes, though they also have general business themes, as well.
25. Macho Themes
Macho Themes’ most well-known theme is probably their NewsMag magazine theme, but they also have other themes for medicine, blogging, and more.
26. Anariel Design
They’ve also done a really good job of making sure all of their themes are compatible with the Gutenberg editor.
27. Meridian Themes
