30 Grid Based WordPress Themes

Grid based layout designs can be very useful for building structured, usable and content rich (not limited to) websites. Grid design certainly has some major benefits for developers (its really easy to to plan where things should go), but its real power lies in what it can do for your readers and users. With a structured grid layout, an everyday user visiting your site can quickly understand and locate the content they want making it very obvious for users to navigate.

In this article we have 30 grid based WordPress themes. All of the themes have been built using popular CSS Grid Frameworks such as the 960.gs, Blueprint, YUI2 and The Golden Grid. We have also included a couple of WordPress grid frameworks at the bottom of the post which you may find useful.
