40+ Best WordPress Grid Themes

One of the dominating trends in web design right now is alignment of page elements to a grid layout. They are typically implemented using CSS frameworks like e.g. twitter Bootstrap. CSS grids are really powerful as they make it simple and fast to create even complex page layouts.

We see grid style layouts used more or less in any type of website design, but they are especially great for magazine, newspaper and portfolio style websites. The most simple and fastest way to set up a website with a grid layout is to use a grid style WordPress theme. Some of these themes have page builder and shorcode systems that makes it possible for you to quickly insert all kinds of content elements into the grid.

I have collected some of the best grid-style WordPress themes in this article and I hope you will be able to find a theme that match your needs. Please take a minute to share the article with your friends if you like it.
