17 Best Corporate WordPress Themes for Businesses

Starting a new business venture is no easy feat – especially if you don’t have a solid website already set up to capture leads, guide new customers to your doorstep or sell products and services directly.

There are a lot of multipurpose and business themes available online for WordPress users and many of them deserve your attention. In this roundup we’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of 17 of the best corporate themes for businesses available today.

Some of the following themes are suited to specific business niches while others can pretty much cover all bases. We’ve highlighted the primary use case for each theme alongside its name, so that you can quickly spot which themes will be of interest to you.

Let’s get cracking!

1. Divi (Multipurpose)

A screenshot of the official Divi header.

Divi is our own multipurpose theme. It features over 20 premade layouts based on diverse business (or personal) sites and comes with full support for WooCommerce integration.

If by any chance you don’t find what you’re looking for among the included premade layouts, you can always turn to the drag-and-drop Divi builder, which easily lets you put together sites with complex features thanks to its wide array of customization options.

The Divi theme is also fully responsive, available in 32 different languages, and was awarded the Sucuri ‘Seal of Security’ thanks to passing their audit with flying colors, making it ideal for building a secure business website.

Try out the Divi demo.

2. Listify (Directory)

A screenshot of the official Listify header.

WithListify you can easily create directories of any kind of business. For example, its demo includes listings for arts events, bars, spas, restaurants, travel, and many other categories. Each individual listing can be customized with a list of features (including custom icons), owner information, links to social profiles, photos, operating hours, and details regarding special deals.

The theme is ready for integration with WooCommerce, which enables you to handle bookings and reservations directly from within your directory using WooCommerce Bookings, and also includes support for OpenTable, Resurva and Guestful.

Integrating WooCommerce also opens the door for you to transform your Listify site into a variety of businesses, such as a gift certificate directory, or a membership site with special deals. There are plenty of creative applications.

Try out the Listify demo.

3. Listable (Directory)

A screenshot of the official Listable header.

Listable offers many of the same features as Listify, while adding a few of its own. Its design is based on cards, and individual listings are more focused on photos of the locale in question. Information about each listing is also shown in a more compact fashion, with prominent calls to action for individual purchases unique to each.

Naturally, it’s fully compatible with WooCommerce, which enables you to monetize your directory in a number of ways. You could, for example, charge for users to add individual listings, take fees for reservations made through your site, or offer a subscription service for people wishing to add their businesses.

Try out the Listable demo.

4. Education WP (Education)

A screenshot of the official Education theme header.

This unique theme enables you to create and monetize online courses as well as integrate an online shop (with WooCommerce) to sell additional materials. The theme itself includes seven unique demos ready to be set up for different kinds of courses, and is integrated with the LearnPress WordPress LMS Plugin, which provides the functionality for the courses themselves.

The LearnPress plugin is able to create sorting choice question types, random quizzes, content drips, give out certificates, reward points (through the myCRED premium plugin, which also comes with the theme), supports multiple instructors, and can also manage payments via Stripe.

On top of these core functions, Education WP also supports bbPress and BuddyPress integration, which enables you to create support forums for your students to obtain additional guidance or share tips between each other.

Try out the Education WP demo.

5. SEO WP (Online Marketing, SEO, Social Media Agency)

A screenshot of the official SEO WP header.

The SEO WP theme is meant to be used by SEO companies, digital marketing agencies, and social media specialists. It comes prepackaged with the Live Composer plugin as well as drag-and-drop builders for forms, footers, and Google Maps.

The images seen in the SEO WP demo are also fully available to be used as part of your finished websites, which means you can use their one-click import function and have a fully functional website live in a matter of minutes (aside from adding your own content, of course).

Purchasing the theme also gets you access to a variety of premium plugins such as Rankie, Mega Main Menu, Master Slider, Easy Social Share Buttons, NEX-Forms, Simplified Google Maps, WPFW and WordPress Fresh Favicon.

Finally, the theme was designed from the ground up to comply with the latest site performance best practices both for regular and mobile use, achieving almost perfect scores across the board in various popular site performance metric tools (as seen on the image above).

Try out the SEO WP demo.

6. Real Homes (Real Estate)

A screenshot of the official Real Homes header.

Real Homes is a powerful real estate listing theme which provides agencies with all the features they need to take their operations online. It features advanced property searches, Google Maps integration, user login and registration, and payment integration via PayPal.

Individual listings contain a wide variety of meta boxes with the basic presets for house and apartments (i.e. sale or rent price, the size of the property, number of bedrooms, etc.) which can be added to depending on the needs of individual agents or agencies.

Real Homes can also be used to power directories; you can even charge users to submit properties through an automated process.

Last but not least, this theme comes bundled with two premium plugins, Visual Composer, and Revolution Slider.

Try out the Real Homes demo.

7. Factory (Industrial and Manufacturing)

A screenshot of the official Factory header.

Factory is an theme intended for industrial operations ranging across fields such as engineering, research, and manufacturing. It’s intended to be set up quickly and includes demos with real content to illustrate what a finished website would look like, and comes with a narrated installation video to guide you through proceedings.

The design here was built with effectiveness in mind, which is to say, conveying the maximum amount of information across each page without overwhelming viewers and with intuitive, no-frills layouts.

It comes bundled with Visual Composer and LayerSlider.

Try out the Factory demo.

8. BuildPress (Construction)

A screenshot of the official BuildPress header.

BuildPress is a no-nonsense theme for construction businesses. Much like Factory, it’s all about providing a solid foundation for informational websites, only in this case targeting the construction niche.

In order to provide a product tailor-made for the field, the team behind BuildPress researched the market and came up with a variety of prebuilt layouts, including unique pages for custom construction services, project portfolios, and all the other basic pages a construction business would need (with all the pertinent information front and center).

The theme is also compatible with WooCommerce, in case you want to incorporate an online store, and comes packaged with the Essential Grid Gallery Plugin to power project portfolios.

Try out the BuildPress demo.

9. Builder (Construction and Architecture)

A screenshot of the official Builder Construction Architect header.

Builder offers a wide variety of features which make it perfect for all the business types it references (from building to cleaning). Its pre-made layouts display opening hours, appointment forms, case results, FAQs, and individual pages for team members.

The theme includes CSS animation options for most of its elements, a simple parallax builder, and a one-click installer for its demo content, in case you want to get your service site up and running in no time. It also comes packaged alongside the Revolution Slider plugin and a premium set of icons at no additional cost.

Try out the Builder Construction Architect Renovation demo.

10. Corpus (General Corporate)

A screenshot of the official Corpus header.

Corpus is all about that sleek, elegant corporate look which makes users feel at ease about the prospect of handing their money to strangers over the internet. On top of its sleek design, the theme also features some great UX design, with integrated animations which don’t feel thrown in just for the fun of it, and incredible attention to detail.

Thanks to its WooCommerce integration, Corpus is well suited for online shops and service companies, although it’s flexible enough to power quite a wide variety of businesses. It comes with the Visual Composer plugin for easy customization, the Revolution Slider plugin, a wide variety of prebuilt pages (including one-page designs), great navigational menus, and as we mentioned earlier, plenty of CSS animations.

Try out the Corpus demo.

11. Accounting (Accountancy)

A screenshot of the official Accounting header.

If you’re only reading this article to find the perfect theme for your accounting business then boy, do we have some good news for you!

Accounting may not be the flashiest of themes, but it does include the solid framework you need to set up a simple and thorough site for accounting businesses, or pretty much any other niche that requires an informational website. By far its best feature is the front and center form to obtain a free quote, which is included alongside the prebuilt theme demo.

The theme is packaged with the Visual Composer and Revolution Slider plugins, is fully ready for WPML localization, and features a one-click install function for its demo content.

Try out the Accounting demo.

12. ClassyAds (Ads Directory)

A screenshot of the official ClassyAds header.

By far the classiest theme featured in our list (sorry), ClassyAds is a recently released classifieds theme that hasn’t received much attention yet, but you should definitely check it out.

It features modern listing pages with prominent headers, plenty of custom details, a convenient navigational system, and contact forms to get in touch with the owner of each offer.

The theme is fully compatible with WooCommerce in order to handle payments for listings, and the ads functionality is based on the WP Job Manager plugin (which is not included alongside the theme).

Try out the ClassyAds demo.

13. Automotive (Car Dealership)

A screenshot of the official Automotive Card Dealership header.

Automotive enables you to setup a gorgeous and fully functional car dealership website. Its main feature is the inclusion of a thorough (and fully searchable) inventory system, which gives your customers the ability to look through all your offerings with the use of multiple filters, and the possibility of comparing multiple vehicles at once to find their dream ride.

It also includes a Similar Vehicles widget, a financing calculator, and layouts for printable brochures in PDF format, as well as all the base Photoshop PSD files used during the design process. As for free plugins, it comes with Visual Composer and Revolution Slider, and is fully compatible with WooCommerce in case you want to add payment options to your online dealership.

Try out the Automotive Car Dealership Business demo.

14. Lawyer Base (Lawyers and Law Firms)

A screenshot of the official Lawyer Base header.

If the previously mentioned Accounting didn’t convince you there’s a WordPress theme for every conceivable niche, Lawyer Base should put those doubts to rest.

This theme was custom built with law firms in mind, and to that effect, it features a modern, professional design which inspires confidence without descending into cookie cutter corporate territory. Its prebuilt layouts include individual pages for different kinds of law areas, testimonials, recent firm news, and individual attorney profiles which can be easily customized.

The theme uses the custom GoodLayers page builder (from the same team who developed this theme), includes the Master Slider plugin, and is fully compatible with WooCommerce as well as WPML.

Try out the Lawyer Base demo.

15. WorkScout (Job Board)

A screenshot of the official WorkScout header.

WorkScout is a recently launched job board theme with plenty of functionality to back up its solid design, although many of its more advanced features require separately sold premium plugins.

Using the theme alongside the free WP Job Manager plugin, you’ll be able to set up a working job directory to which users can upload listings separated by different categories such as freelance, full-time, internship, part-time and temp. The theme was also developed with more advanced functions in mind, covering everything from uploading resumes, application management (which could be seen from an employer dashboard), new job alerts, and bookmarked jobs.

All of these functions are supported by the theme and included in the design but require the purchase of add-ons, which may be a turnoff for some.

Try out the WorkScout demo.

16. Medicare (Medical and Health)

A screenshot of the official Medicare header.

Medicare is a custom-built theme for medical practitioners which includes prebuilt layouts for several specific fields such as clinics, dentist and veterinary offices.

Its designs are simple yet include smart details such as custom animations, and are intended to be packed with important medical information in an easy to digest fashion. The theme also features a built-in cost calculator plugin, the RapidComposer plugin, is fully ready for translation, and includes support for WooCommerce as well as being ready for child theming.

Try out the Medicare demo.

17. Startuply (Multipurpose)

A screenshot of the official Startuply header.

Last but not least, Startuply is meant to fulfill the crucial functions needed by a startup on the rise. It doesn’t matter if your product or service hasn’t gone live yet – this theme will help you start compiling user information for your waiting list or advance sign-ups.

Startuply comes with seven prebuilt layouts to get your startup page up and running in no time, and comes prepackaged with a few premium plugins including Revolution Slider, Visual Composer, and Templatera.

Try out the Startuply demo.

  1. Hello,
    Superb List
    Liked all the themes you mentioned
    Going to try Education WP theme for one of my websites
    Thanks for the Post

  2. I said this in the last post regarding themes, and I’ll say it again. Divi is really the only theme you need. Once you learn how to use it (which is very easy), you can truly create any website you want. That’s why we only offer Divi to our customers at WP Propeller. It’s all you need!

    • Nathan B. Weller

      Thank you for the kind words! Obviously, we’re pretty fond of Divi too 🙂

    • Totally agree WP Propeller, I was looking for a new theme, but after seeing these themes I conclude that Divi can do each one with a little effort on photos and maybe with some code tricks.
      Looking for others themes if just for inspiration.
      Thanks for sharing.

      • Tom Ewer

        Thanks for your comment, Jonatan! It’s always good to discover what other themes have to offer, as long as you know which side your bread is buttered. 🙂

  3. Ok. That is nice. however what about CRM templates?
    Only a few plugins but no templates?
    Am I missing something or entire areas of Template development.
    Today everyone needs to tack their social lifes, circle of friends, let alone firms and social associations of all kinds.
    Help.

    • Nathan B. Weller

      Ignacio, I’m not entirely sure what you mean when you say “CRM templates”. Do you mean themes specifically for customer relationship management?

      If so, then the reason you probably don’t see that too often is because it’s not a great idea to pack all of that functionality into a theme. It’s much better to put the functionality into a plugin and then use that plugin with a theme that works well with that plugin.

      I think you’re right in thinking that no one has really got it right when it comes to creating a good WordPress CRM plugin/theme combo. Or even a good WordPress CRM integration. Not for small to medium sized businesses anyway.

      • Thank you for your response, Nathan and good that you acknowledge the need for good CRM/theme. My point is that there’s a need (I have it) to somehow manage, keep ordered track and general centering relationship’s information. Being a little business, independent service provider, interest organization or much else really would benefit to have an intelligent directory book (able to discern in layers) together with a calendar and the ability to keep track of meetings and their content.
        I would prefer to have dedicated site template (instead of a plugin), so I might coordinate that tool with different persons, allowing separate access and the addition of different plugins to sculpt its usage to a diversity of options, plus being easy for it to grow and all without altering or messing with my organization’s site.
        Our hosting allows it without a hitch or extra cost.

        However, what do we have available right now? that ancient and very limited WP-CRM plugin?? Not mention those utterly expensive (starting from $50-$100 a month!!) cloud services, to whom you surrender control.
        And not mention, Bitrix 24 free CRM limited version, because it automatically erases all your dedicated work, ALL of it, just if you do not visit it in a 30 days lapse. Of course, that is a no-no risk for your personal carefully accumulated information about your friends, customers, providers, groups of interests, let alone your history track of meetings, themes talked, etc,etc that such CRM may be so useful for.
        ///In the actual Netted Universe,this need is bound to grow. Calling developers!

  4. I’ve only started using Divi on two of the websites I’m working on and I think it’s a great theme. However, I can’t help feeling it’s overhyped as some of the features don’t work. For instance, I couldn’t find the premade layouts. And one has to edit code or use CSS to customise footer information. Who would have expected that from a premium theme?

    • Hi Philip,
      Might I suggest you contact ET’s customer support, or join one of the incredibly helpful Divi Facebook communities, to get more targeted support for the issues you are having with Divi. The premade layouts are most certainly there (no hype, it’s true!) and there are many simple solutions available for many kinds of customizations, including the footer information. 🙂

    • I agree about the custom-footer part. I think I heard rumors they plan to fix that at some point, but at the moment I find it a pain.

  5. Awesome list! Divi’s my favorite!

  6. Themeforest license? wow ..

    I like Divi. Very complete module, easy to set up and the license is not complicate

  7. They are awesome! I have only used Div but the rest seems very professional too, maybe I would try some of them for a new site.

  8. Awesome resources Tom, thanks for the list. I might check them out on some of the websites I’m making.

  9. Divi has been the best choice for us. We run our business on it. Couldn’t be any happier.

  10. Definitely it is a great collection of corporate WordPress theme. One of my friend is looking for a corporate theme. Surely I’ll share the link with him.

  11. Great collection. But the only theme have used is the Divi theme. Its a nice and beauty theme and loads pretty fast

  12. Hey! Here’s Oana from PixelGrade crew. Many thanks for featuring LISTABLE (our WP theme) in this article. Happy to know you appreciate our creative work. All the best!

    • Tom Ewer
