Its march 2014 and in the past 2 months, developers have released a number of Free Simple WordPress themes. So I thought to sort out the best releases out of hundreds and here I compiled the Best Simple WordPress themes 2014. Bloggers can use these themes to start an eye-catching blog using WordPress platform. Those who can’t afford to buy premium WordPress themes can take a start with any of these. So, without spending a penny, you are going to have a cool WordPress based blog.

Generally people prefer to use simple themes instead of Stylish ones due to a number of reasons. A stylish theme will be definitely heavy, containing extra CSS and JavaScript’s which effects the page load time badly. So, if you go for a minimalist design, then it will improve your website load time. This will definitely provide a better user experience and it also helps in better SEO. Less cluttered websites are easy to navigate and keep the focus of readers on the main content.

Most of the themes in this collection include theme options panel that allows you to customize blog anyway you want. All these are simple and minimalist themes with slickly layout and after all you can download them for free.
