If you haven’t taken a look at the (X)HTML/CSS templates that are available for free from a variety of sources, you may be surprised by the quality you can find. WordPress themes tend to get a lot of exposure and attention in the design community right now, but there is also a wide variety of high-quality (X)HTML/CSS templates that are free of charge.

In this post, we’ll showcase 100 free high-quality templates. Hopefully some of them will save you some time in your design and development. While they are generally free for personal or commercial use, always remember to check the license first for any restrictions or guidelines.

    This is the downfall of web design. Sure, that may sound a bit exaggerated, but this is exactly the reason why so many websites today look line clones of one another — with all their repeated “Web 2.0 elements” and what not. Developers need to stick to what they do know best, just like how designers should not pose as hardcore developers. Economy is bad enough as it is. Brands across the nation and around the world could actually use some competitive designs that don’t look like every other site with rounded-corners; and the design agencies, whether big or small, could actually use the work. Smashing Magazine, please stop feeding everybody the same kind of bullshit. It’s one thing to inspire people to learn and create, but it’s totally something else to just hand everything to people without them earning it through their own labor. Please, if you guys care one bit about actual creativity in the field of design, if you guys care one bit about the progress of art and design, then you know this isn’t the way to stimulate anything new.

    Going to have to disagree with a few posts above. I’m just getting into the field myself, and it is quite helpful to be able to dissect a fully operational template to try to come to terms with all of the quirks in browsers and techniques to resolve different layout issues. (The real solution would be to teach it at the university, or make books much cheaper for students, but apparently no one has thought of that so far…).

    (Though I agree with not making 7000+ clones of the same tired website. Even someone interested in the field gets tired of looking at the same thing.)

    Love free templates.

    But a lot of these are quite underwhelming, actually. Tastes do differ, I guess.

    These templates are not supposed to be copied and used 1:1. But designers can learn a lot from analyzing the code and learning new techniques presented there. That was the main point of this post.

    nice post, but some of them are really so old. Especially templateworld stuff.. I don’t agree with people who hate free templates. Creativity costs! Not all the people have money to pay for creativity. Even if they have, do you think that there are thousands of artists who can make creative designs?
    Using free templates is a very good way, especially about corporate web sites. If you are smart enough, you can create a uniqueness by changing the header images, font-family, colors. If you have time, you can even change the layout with few lines.
    It’s better to create a uniqueness with your services, with your products. It’s more important then your web site’s a:hover effect :-)

    So many templates, even free that sometimes i wonder why I spend so much times on photoshop and html. However templates never connect to me, I just see them as soulless.

    Great list, and thrilled to see two of my templates in there (Inverted Healine and Choice).

    (How do I get in touch with the author to see if he can change the links to go directly to my website… DemusDesign?)

    Jarryd,
    Some of them list browsers that have been tested, but generally I wouldn’t assume too much from a free template. I would recommend testing even if it claims to be cross browser compatible.

    Seeing how “Reference” is such an obvious ripoff of superawesome it makes me wonder how many other templates in that bunch is nothing else but a cheap clone of some good looking website.

    -2
  44. 44

    Let’s not forget that these free templates are designed solely with publicity in mind. The designers of these sites use them as a platform for future bespoke commissions. That’s no bad thing, but it does give a soulless generic feel to some of the freebies. I kind of agree with BR in terms of rounded-corners being passé. They can kill a site if not used subtly. The Greeny Grass template is great by the way – a simple but effective bit of design.

    @BR

    “Developers need to stick to what they do know best, just like how designers should not pose as hardcore developers.”

    That smacks of hard grapes on your part BR,
    Clearly you are making alowance for designers who engage in a little non-hardcore development.. aka yourself

    Since using templates is considered non-hardcore design you have justified their use by developers.

    Perhaps, to paraphrase yourself “Designers need to stick to what they do know best”
