WordPress has become one of the top choices for content management systems among website owners. This has happened for several reasons, but one is the readily available collection of themes that can transform the appearance and functionality of a site. There are all kinds of themes out there, but some of my favorites are the ones that take a minimalistic approach so the content can do the talking. If you’ve been on the lookout for some nice minimal WordPress themes, then you’re in luck. Here are 10 free ones that you should find useful.

    I love the minimal look. I personally use the Clean Home design for my blog but I have made a few changes by adding style switching so users can change from red on white to different colours, plus I added ajax powered collapsible comment sections on the main page. I think this adds to the minimal look by allowing users to read and post comments without having to go into individual post pages as well as leaving the main page uncluttered.

    I’m partial to anything that looks like a newspaper. Foliogrid is quite good though.

    Some of them to simple for me. To much content at one can be deadly ;)
