WordPress is no doubt one of the most popular website design environments around. With themes to fit a multitude of needs, it is equally viable for beginners and experienced developer alike. For beginners, the best way to maximize a WordPress experience is to choose a theme really designed for people new to WordPress.

Some of our favorite newbie-friendly WordPress themes are as follows:

Codium Grid Theme

Codium Grid is possibly the easiest WordPress theme to use. The only real element it leaves to the user is content. It also includes some built-in tools for SEO to really get you off the ground in style.
