There are a ton of free WordPress themes available, ranging from very basic to more advanced layouts and designs. With all these free options out there, many people wonder why they would spend money on a so-called "premium" theme. Let's look at several of the advantages you get with these themes.
The first advantage is the look and feel of your website. Yes, there are some free themes that can do a pretty good job but in most cases they need you to tweak them or possibly even do some more serious coding to get them working the way you want. Premium themes tend to be a lot more polished, with some even letting you modify your layout by simply dragging and dropping different components, much like you would in web design software like Dreamweaver.
