If you’re interested in developing your own WordPress themes, you could start building it all from scratch. While a noble pursuit, it can also be quite inefficient. That’s especially so if you plan on creating multiple themes over the course of time. The repetitive nature of a theme’s structure means that you’ll be doing a lot of the same things over and over. Thankfully, there’s a better way to build your own themes. By using a “starter” theme, all the basics are done for you. Templates and code structure are already in place – but often in a barebones sort of way. That allows you to essentially build a website to your own custom specifications. It cuts out the repetition while also acting as a blank canvas to build upon. By using a good starter theme, you’ll spend less time on ripping apart existing styles and more time on the specific needs of your project. You might also like to take a look at our collections of WordPress Frameworks or free WordPress Themes.
