Everyone with great ambitions – whether a person, company, or team – knows that they need to invest in all aspects of their business, from production to marketing.
And just as an international corporation with hundreds of employees won’t hire a beginner web developer to design their website, using anything less than a premium WordPress theme is not a good idea either if you want to give your website visitors the ultimate user experience.
Premium website themes offer a number of advanced features that place them miles ahead of free themes. This is not to say that free themes can’t do the job as they often meet the needs of many businesses.
However, the difference between premium and free themes is more than obvious and that is why premium WordPress themes are paid. They are carefully planned and designed by expert developer teams to match the needs of businesses whose only concern is quality, not price.
Below is the most up-to-date list of the top premium WordPress themes of 2019.
The slogan that describes this premium WordPress theme is ‘Customize Everything’. Not only is this a memorable phrase but also a true one.
Jupiter X is such a powerful theme that you will probably not want to use any other theme once you have tried it. After all, that is why it is at the head of this list even though it has only recently come out of the beta version.
With Jupiter X, you can create amazing web design solutions very quickly and easily using Elementor, the most popular page builder on the planet. It enables you to develop full visual experience, customize content for mobile devices, save and reuse sections, as well as make use of pre-made section templates.
True to its slogan, customization is where this theme really gets to shine. It allows you to customize pretty much everything, from typography to colors, sidebars to page layouts, headers to footers. In addition, there are unlimited header and footer options, including mobile screen customization and over 40 pre-made header and footer templates.
Jupiter X customization options also come in handy for ecommerce websites as it offers:
- WooCommerce integration

- pre-made shop templates
- visual customizer that lets you manage shop widgets
However, online stores are not the only type of websites that will benefit from this premium WordPress theme. If you run a blog or portfolio, you will be happy to find out that Jupiter X includes pre-made blog and portfolio templates.
Finally, this WordPress theme is very flexible when it comes to code making, which will put a smile on all developers’ faces. This theme offers limitless actions and filters, smart flushing cache system, automatic RTL CSS generation, as well as customizable open-source libraries.
‘Salient is digital brilliance’ is the slogan behind this premium WordPress theme which offers an impressive and beautiful website look. The main feature that makes Salient stand out from some other themes is the video background it uses.
This theme offers amazing color typography and layout customization features, with extended HD video documentation that can come in handy in case you have never customized a website theme before.
The Salient portfolio layout allows you to display projects in a very organized manner. However, the Salient theme comes with only two blog styles available – a masonry style and a general style. Also, it offers only one, though beautiful, online shop style.
The entire design of this theme is fully-responsive and Retina ready, which allows access from all devices regardless of the screen size or technology. Also, there is a wide choice of more than 350 Retina-ready icons and eight page layouts.
With a single click, you can make your website full width or boxed. This modification is immediately followed by an automatic adaptation of all the elements on the page.
