30 Minimal WordPress Themes from 2011

Minimal is the timeless web design trend of basic styling a web page and stripping out all non-essential elements allowing the reader to focus solely on the content with absolutely no distractions. Achieving the balance between content and minimal design is not easy, but in the hands of a skilled designer or a competent writer, the minimal style can truly accentuate your web page.

This post is our third year featuring minimal WordPress themes and by far and away our best, you can also view the 2009 and 2010 editions.

    You have to be careful with minimal themes – it’s useless to use them if you content lacks quality. AND quantity. I usually do them myself in Lubith, many users look for this kind of themes because you can cutomize them in many ways and make them original, and still keep that simple attractive look.

  • Excellent minimal wordpress themes, i like all of them, thanks for sharing!
