WordPress Themes for Elementor

Are you struggling to pick the best theme for your Elementor website?

Themes play an important role when designing a website. Choosing a multipurpose theme that not only works well with the Elementor page builder but also with your local business or non-profit organization can be a challenging feat. 

In this blog, we have researched and sorted out a list of the best themes that are compatible with the Elementor page builder. Take a look at all these themes before you make a decision.   

Before diving into our selection of top Elementor themes, let us explain the difference between themes and templates as many confuse one with the other.

What is the Difference Between a Theme and a Template?

A theme is the design of the entire website. It contains a variety of common pages like the home page, about us page, team page, services pages, contact us page, blog pages, and sometimes some variations of each page. Themes also come loaded with font styles, footer and header designs, colour combinations, layouts, design elements, images, videos, and many other sections and pages of a website.  

A template is a single-page layout that is available within a theme. It is not the design of the entire website. Every template is categorized under a theme where the HTML/CSS code for a template is located. By updating a theme, all templates under that particular theme will be updated automatically. However, the two terms – theme and template, are often used interchangeably, as most people do not know the difference.

1. Phlox


Phlox offers a variety of the best-looking Elementor ready themes on the market. They look super modern and come loaded with the latest visual effects that look better than most Material design sites out there. If you are looking for a modern yet customizable Elementor theme Phlox could be your best bet. This theme perfectly suits any type of websites like a blog, portfolio, business, travel, photography, and more. 

Phlox has a grid layout, footer layout, sub footer bar, title layouts, threaded-comments, exclusive widgets, elements, and a professional portfolio. It can be integrated with famous page builders like Elementor, Visual Composer, and SiteOrigin. 

The main issue with Phlox themes is speed. We have noticed that it is almost impossible to make a Phlox theme lightning fast. This in part has to do with the visual effects that their themes come preloaded with as well as the fact that the multi-scripts and styles decrease the site speed even when they are not required/used. Another major issue with Phlox is the limitation of not being able to have unique mobile and/or tablet versions of images. Phlox does scale images down for mobile/tablet devices but you cannot choose a unique image for mobile, tablet and desktop. 

However, don’t let this discourage you. If your site doesn’t require many plugins, components or customizations, and you are willing to spend a bit of time and money on custom speed optimizations, speed plugins, and a VPS or managed server then Phlox is an awesome choice. We have several clients on Phlox themes, and they are loading fast.

One of the main benefits of Phlox is its large selection of themes with varying styles. Click here to view themes.

Although Astra themes are lightning-fast, they are not as modern-looking, nor are they as loaded with sections when compared to Phlox themes. However, with the help of Elementor page templates, motion effects, and a decent web designer, you can have an Astra theme looking like a million bucks in no time.

Furthermore, similar to Astra, GeneratePress themes are also fairly barebones, with only a handful of pages that come with a few to a handful of sections, so you will want a good designer to do some custom web design to get your theme looking fresh and attractive.

Which Theme to Choose?

The choice of a theme should be made based on the features it has. We have compared all the necessary features required in a theme to build an awesome website. Some of the above themes like Neve, Phlox, Astra, Page Builder Framework, GeneratePress, Jupiter, and Rhodos have CSS3 animations and some themes like Customify and Zakra don’t. But, this is not an issue as Elementor page builder provides entrance animations feature. 

If you’re still confused about which theme to pick, we’d recommend Astra. It perfectly suits most types of businesses as it has many of the required features to build an awesome website. By using Astra you can easily customize any part of your website and enjoy the huge variety of theme options available.
