Detailed Review

The site provides complete access to all its 87 themes at an affordable starting price of $69. A Lifetime Access option at $249 allows complete access to all themes and features without any yearly fees. They claim to have over 260,000 active customers at the time of writing this review, Elegant Themes offers a number of Shortcodes, Page Templates and Theme Options that allow users full control over their website.

Style and Simplicity

Whether for casual readers, professionals or service providers, a website must appear visually appealing. Elegant Themes lends its users clean, uncluttered patterns with subtle and attractive color palettes. This allows a user’s content to become the centerpiece of the website. The themes are organized from the newer, trendier designs to the more dated ones, catering to a wider audience.    

A Large Collection

With a collection of 87 themes, Elegant Themes has designs that cover every need, from casual blogging to professional business houses seeking to sell their products or services. If you need to present massive amounts of content in a clear, structured manner, then Nexus, the versatile magazine theme, is what you need. On the other hand, if you run a travel-related business with an accompanying blog and travel guides, the location-based Explorable theme with Google Maps Integration and Filterable Listings Search would be most applicable.

Currently they have themes for categories such as app, blogs, business, e-commerce, magazine, multimedia and much more with its relevant features.

Customizable Designs

Every project has its own unique needs. Therefore, the ability to customize a website’s design must rest in the hands of the user. Keeping this aspect in mind, Elegant Themes offers users complete control over the use and application of widgets, color schemes, fonts and styles. The Divi 2.0 theme, for instance, comes with 18 pre-made layouts that are completely customizable and can be used to create your own designs. It is also their most flexible and powerful theme that provides a Drag & Drop Builder, multiple layout options, and a secure and modern code. Features like the Theme Customizer and Custom Background Images provide ample opportunity to give your website the shape and color you desire.  

User Friendly

The Member’s Area is intuitive and easy to navigate. It provides quick access to your account information, theme documentation and the support forums. You can use the Member’s Area to modify your account details, upgrade or cancel your account, as well as download the various themes and plugins. The site also runs an accompanying blog that highlights latest news and updates, theme changes, bug fixes, and new theme sneak peeks.

Plans and Pricing

Elegant Themes presently offers three plans. At $69 per year, the Personal plan provides complete access to all themes including those that may be added over the duration of your membership. It also provides perpetual theme updates and premium technical support. The Developer plan, priced at $89 per year, is ideal for web developers looking to provide cutting edge web solutions to their customers. In addition to the features of the Personal plan, the Developer plan allows complete access to all plugins as well as the ability to upload layered Photoshop files. The Lifetime Access plan is a value-for-money option that requires a one-time fee of $249 for all of the above mentioned features.

Technical Support

The site does not provide email, chat or phone support for its themes. Instead, technical support is provided by Elegant Themes’ own member support forum.  Members can use the forum to either post their own questions by opening a new ticket, or look up solutions to similar concerns posted earlier by other members. Each of the themes provided by Elegant is supported on the forum by its own dedicated channel, however, support for theme customization is not guaranteed. Support member response times can vary between a few minutes to several hours.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a wide variety of themes to choose from with complete access to all themes, Elegant Themes is an affordable yet high quality option. The site provides an array of visually appealing themes that are also highly customizable. An accompanying blog and a comprehensive list of FAQs besides an active member support forum mean that help is never too far away.

Affordable Price for All Access Themes

Elegant Themes By Aleksei K. on October 29th

First of all, there are lots of premium theme providers out there, but to be honest, their pricing is really expensive. I am considering my own business, and with 30+ websites to maintain, I need premium themes that I can use for all of my websites without having to spend thousands of dollars in doing so. This is not to mention that in most premium theme marketplaces, they charge hundreds of dollars for one theme, which is way out of my budget. So, I need a constant access to a theme database that I can use for all of my websites, without having to spend lots of money doing so. Elegant Themes provide the best theme selection for me, and the price that I agree. Lots of the themes are highly customizable, with very good and beautiful design, and best of all, I can use all the themes for one affordable access fee. This is what I really like from Elegant Themes.

Fall in Love with Elegant Themes!

Elegant Themes By Elizia F. on October 19th

Elegant Themes have been providing premium themes for my website ever since I started my online business a few years ago. Upon comparing many premium themes marketplaces that I can find, I chose Elegant Themes because of its cost-effectiveness, as well as the variety of visually-appealing themes that I can find on this platform. I don't know, my eyes just click with all the themes offered by Elegant Themes, and since then, I cannot choose other themes from other marketplaces. I just feel comfortable with how the themes are designed, and how easily I can customize each theme to my liking. So, really, I've never tried other premium themes provided in other marketplaces, but I think it doesn't matter since I already found the best one for me.
