Magento Designs
As Magento has started to emerge as a great tool for businesses who wants to sell online. With its full offering of options and features, Magento is hard to go past when it comes to an eCommerce platform.

Since we our first post on the best wordpress themes for business, and since we offer Magento as part of our own eCommerce Design program, we decided we could do a similar post on themes for Magento. Based on what we already know works for business, we thought we would find Magento themes that have the following criteria;

  1. Menu bar across the top.
  2. Two Column Layout
  3. Space for your logo in the top left hand corner.
  4. Background colour of the body is white.
  5. Stretchable side areas (outside of the body)
  6. CSS menu (not images)

When you are looking for a Magento template, there are some key things you should look out for;

Decide what your brand is; choose a flexible template

Have a look around at the competition, what they website looks like and how they are producing their website. Find a template that looks flexible and can adapt to your brand. If the buttons are blue and white, but your branding is all red, then maybe you should look elsewhere.

Breathing space

Your ecommerce website should breath. Too much clutter and you will confuse your buyers. Every element in your wordpress website should be given breathing space. It should also mean that when you add a widget to the sidebar, whether it is an image or text, it should not destroy the flow of the template.

Based on these recomendations, these are the latest best Magento themes. If you want to purchase any of these themes, all you have to do is click on the images.
