Magento Free templates – Tips to choosing the right store template

by | Feb 26, 2018 | Blog | 0 comments

Magento offers a lot of potential for eCommerce store owners. It is open source, and provides an out of the box easy solution. This means the store is flexible to design and code according to your requirements. The very first thing that most store owners look for is a template. This helps in branding and also in displaying the products efficiently. There are a lot of Magento free templates available in the market. However before installing, keep a few things in mind for choosing the right store template.

Tips for Magento Free Templates:

Always choose a template which is current. This way you will not face any bug problems or have to update the template.

Another great tip is to choose a template that has the maximum features you want. Things like Image zoom, Tweet feeds, Mega menus and so on.

Choose a template that is responsive.

And also check the template on all devices, especially smartphones. Sometimes even though the template is responsive, the arrangement of the products isn’t ideal on smaller screens.

Also before installing, look at the Live demo sites of the template. Check out the navigation bar location, design of the menus and text positions.

Another thing to look out for is cross browser compatibility. Some templates look good on Chrome and Firefox, but fail horribly on Internet Explorer and Safari.

And finally check if the template offers breadcrumbs. These are great things to have for easy navigation.
