Did you ever find yourself making a website with WordPress theme, but the end result didn’t look anything like the theme demo? I listed out 11 common design mistakes that are often overlooked by website makers.
You found the perfect WordPress theme. The demo of the theme looked flawless. Your client liked it a lot and agreed with you to make a purchase. You bought it, installed it and started editing the theme to the client’s needs.
You changed the logo, changed the colors of the theme, inserted the slider images and the content, but in the end, the website you made just doesn’t look like the demo at all. You know something is wrong, but you just cannot detect what. Sounds familiar?
Over the past 5 years, working as a designer in WordPress theme business, I saw countless examples of beautiful websites created with our WordPress themes.
But every once in a while, I see a website with a solid foundation but with a couple of small design mistakes, that ruin the overall experience. I’m talking about small little things that can be easily fixed by anyone.
I know it’s hard to spot these flaws, especially if you are not a designer. For that reason, I decided to write a blog post about how to improve your client’s website to look even better.
Bookmark this blog post and go through the list below the next time you are going to build a website with WordPress theme. It will only take you an hour or two, to remove all the imperfections, but the result will look a 100% better.
