There are hundreds of websites out there proclaiming to have free OpenCart templates or free OpenCart themes which then turns out a list of deactivated, boring or even paid themes!
So, I thought I would post up this list of 7 genuinely free OpenCart templates for you to peruse, download and use in all of your OpenCart projects. I should add here that I haven’t made any of these and I don’t earn anything by providing a link to their website so this is completed based upon the design of the templates and nothing else!
Carbon | Free OpenCart Template
This one is undoubtedly one of the best free OpenCart templates I have seen since beginning to work with the system. It is a stylish, modern looking theme which is completely unique. Has some great images as standard as well and I love the layout. Would definitely recommend playing around with this one!
Jewelry | Free OpenCart Template
This is a free OpenCart template created by hosting company HostAndWin. Bit of a dodgy name for a hosting company and undoubtedly puts a few people off thinking it is a bit spammy but they have a small collection of well designed OpenCart themes available for free and “Jewelry” is the best design out of all of them. It is a two column simple template which I would imagine could be moulded to many other types of website apart from jewellery!
ThemeGlobal | Free OpenCart template
ThemeGlobal is another free OpenCart template which is offered by yet another hosting company (spotting a trend here?) which is remarkably well-designed and has a slick colour scheme and a NIVO slider. As far as I can tell it is cross-compatible and would provide a good E-commerce design for many different websites!
Kids | Free OpenCart Template
This is a simple but friendly design for a kids store you can use for openCart. It is cross browser compatible but is only compatible with OpenCart systems before 1.5 so use with caution if you are running a later version of the system.
Sullen | Free OpenCart Template
Sullen is a product focussed free theme for OpenCart which has a large easy-to-see navigation system which is great for E-commerce stores where the clothes are the main focus (rightly so!). There is little information on the download page so I cannot say what the template support will be like but it seems a nice, clean theme to use. And because it’s free, there’s not much to lose!
Ya Template | Free OpenCart Template
Ya Template is another free openCart theme whcih doesn’t have a demo version but looks great and works even better. It is a simple, clean and block template which uses big typography with bold colours to make sure you don’t forget about it in a hurry!
Fashion | Free OpenCart Template
I debated whether or not I would put this one in the list and in the end (obviously) I decided to show it. The reason I was hesistant was because the theme itself is not so spectacular but with a little modification this could easily become a premium grade theme for you to use on clothing OpenCart sites.
That’s it for now…
Believe it or not, this is the very best of all the OpenCart templates out there. There are hundreds of free themes and templates for the OpenCart system but most of them are just people changing the background colour of a few boxes and calling it a new theme. Even when paying it is difficult to find some truly unique OpenCart systems and the only reason I can think of really is that developers are only interested in making Magento or WordPress themes to sell.
Granted, there is a much smaller market for paid OpenCart themes but I would say that there is an over-saturation of WordPress themes out there and although there may be less people paying for OpenCart templates it would be much easier to dominate if you put forward high quality templates. Just a parting thought of course!
