I’m a big fan of Joomla for many reasons. First I really love the easiness you can build a website with Joomla. Not just a website, but with Joomla you have limitless options to create any type of online property. Second I enjoy its features and scalability, and last but not least I like Joomla because it can be used for free.
Joomla can be extended pretty easily, with the use for extensions. There are thousands of premium and free extensions you can download and install to your Joomla system. Besides this, there are thousands of free and premium templates you can choose from. With the use of Joomla template, you can make a completely unique and feature rich website in couple of hours.
With so many Joomla themes available it is quite challenging to find the design you need. It is questionable what type of template to choose, free or premium. Well, if you are on a budget, probably you would opt for a free theme.
Bellow I’ve collected the best free Joomla templates, to have all of them in one place. The majority of these Joomla designs are compatible with version 2.5 and 3.x, while the new templates I add probably will only work with 3.x+ version. All listed themes are responsive, so you don’t need to do extra work to make them compatible with smartphones or tablets.
Take your time, browse through these templates and pick a design that fits the best your Joomla project. I’ve carefully selected these designs, ensuring that there are highly customizable, professional looking and well coded.
