BigCommerce Design Themes for 2021: A Review
August 3, 2021
Functional yet stylish layouts are the hallmarks of some of the most promoted BigCommerce website design themes for 2021. BigCommerce themes this year are responsive and retina-ready, have default Ajax carts, static blocks, blog and newsletter modules, and support multiple currencies. To top it all off, these themes are significantly more customizable than before.
This article will briefly review some of the most stunning web design themes available for the BigCommerce platform, whether created by BigCommerce or by major third party players such as Halothemes and Magentech.
1. Razor – Electronics Store BigCommerce Theme:
If you’re looking for a clean, sunny orange for your electronics store, this is the layout you’ll want to own. The colors are not too bright and easy on the eyes. There’s plenty of white space and neat little grid arrangements based on the Stencil framework. The front-end sits on the Foundation CSS Framework, said to be the most advanced responsive front-end framework in the world.
There’s customizable configuration with Ajax carts, wishlists, and comparisons. There’s support for Mega Menus – menu lists that cover a large number of product or category links. A convenient daily deals module allows you to micro-manage promotions. Complete with brand slider, static blocks, blog and newsletter modules, testimonials, product zooms, and the mercurial Ajax toolbar, you can, virtually, scale up features and user experience to infinity.
Of course, this theme is 100% device responsive, working equally well on browsers as varied as IE11, Chrome, Edge, Safari, Firefox, and Opera. Finally, there’s the rich documentation and immaculate customer support that makes implementation a breeze.
2. AP Alaska by Apollotheme:
Nature and winter are the intuitive descriptions for this theme, which is remarkably rich in it’s feature-set. It’s USP lies in it’s 2-minute install with a single click. Bootstrap, HTML5, CSS3 combine to give you a powerful admin control panel that users with zero coding knowledge will find a delight.
Slideshows, Mega Menus, Panel tools, flexible layout systems, product quick views, masonry styles, popup newsletters, testimonials with parallax background, stylish banners, and hover effects, give this Stencil-BigCommerce-Framework-based theme a rare elegance that works well with winter clothing, outdoor, and sporting equipment.
3. CAROS – Cars & Auto Parts by Halothemes:
This one fills the gap for a muscular, mechanical parts e-store design that doesn’t rip off the rollers like an autobot from the ‘Transformers’ movies. Optimized perfectly for mobile UI/UX, Stencil-ready, and replete with stunning layouts and premium-theme-features, this add-on promises to sweep auto-lovers off their feet.
You can put in multiple headers and footers, create custom product tabs, implement an ‘Ask an Expert’ form, drag-and-drop products into shopping carts, set up a LookBook module or Ajax popup for login and registration, and configure a ‘Frequently Bought Together’ bundle with ease.
There are plenty of video, image, and zoom capabilities to enhance visitor UX. Built-in SEO, multi-level category filter (available separately), and three interactive home page layouts add verve to your web store.
4. SarahMarket – Large Store Grocery BigCommerce Theme by Kalathemes:
Large-format stores will find SarahMarket uniquely classy while being quick to load and very handy SEO features already in place. Lots of flexibility is offered when cataloguing products into categories and sub-categories.
You can easily customize fonts and colors. This theme, too, boasts most of the features mentioned with the previous examples, and works equally well on different browsers and devices despite the high resolution.
5. Beautica – by Halothemes:
From supermarkets we move on to convenient, family-oriented store themes. Beautica looks and feels like the real deal with its lighter, more varied colors. This theme is perfect for cosmetics stores, luxury items, and sellers of artsy trinkets.
