New Theme: Trim

New Theme: Trim

Trim is simple, professional, versatile and fast. We have had a lot of requests for a less stylistic, lightweight design, and that is exactly what we created with this latest theme. Trim might be simple, but with that simplicity comes a sense of balance and crispness that I find quite refreshing. Coupled with a bunch of great features, I am confident that Trim will prove useful for a variety of our users.

Live DemoFeatures Info


Fully Responsive Design

Trim features a fully responsive design. This means that the theme will adapt to various screen sizes to insure that your content is readable on any device. The theme will display beautifully on your desktop computer, as well as your mobile phone. The theme even includes different designs for portrait and landscape modes.

The theme will also adapt to tablet displays. Your website will display beautifully and readable on your iPad. No longer will your visitors need to zoom and scroll around to read or navigate your website.

Lightweight and Super-Fast!

Trim is called “trim” for a reason. It is stripped down and optimized to be fast loading and lightweight. I put my graphic-heavy style on a diet and slimmed this theme into shape. We used CSS3 wherever possible to avoid using too many images. In fact, the entire theme only contains a few tiny graphics!

Tons of Customization Options

Trim comes packaged with our CSS control panel, allowing you toΒ easilyΒ adjust your website’s colors and fonts. You can adjust your background using any possible color, choose from our many pre-made textures, or even upload your own custom background image. Choose from dozens of fonts and adjust your body and heading color with a click on your mouse.


I hope that everyone puts the theme to good use! Please leave a comment and let us know what you think πŸ™‚

  1. Great stuff, Nick – I love it and think a lot of my clients will be interested.

  2. Look forward to checking this one out! Thank you!

  3. Really clean layout… Liked the navigation menu so much! It’s awesome! One thing, I’ll recommend is add some extra social buttons for Google+/Pinterest on Elegant Themes.

  4. Amazing work. Again.

    Love it!

  5. Great simple design. I like it. I am going to use this one in one of my websites.

  6. I really like it, it’s very fast and loads instantly. The only thing I’d like to see is the option to have a filled in background on the slider. It was easy enough for me to add (background of white and 3px top border), but a quick checkbox in settings panel would have been handy. πŸ™‚

    Otherwise, great work as always!

  7. Very clean, Nick!

    And another theme to add to the responsive collection.


  8. Nice job! The only feedback I have is that I wish it had a few more color options for the navigation and icons instead of only blue. Keep up the good work. πŸ™‚

  9. Great themes. Exactly what I was looking for.

  10. Trim looks elegant, simple, modest but also very powerful. This could be a good fit for many of my clients.

  11. Wow! Finally its released!

    Well Done! ET Team πŸ™‚

  12. Impressive stuff. Minimalism at it’s best.

  13. Simply Superb, just amazing work ET, Very light then air :)Great Job ET team

  14. This is great and loads quickly. Just having a few issues with the custom logo that I am sure the support team will help me with. πŸ™‚

  15. Wow~ Looks really nice~ I like the fact that it’s totally TRIMMED down. Thumbs up!

  16. More clean then other themes and I love ET color combination…..

    Great work ET Team…….

  17. Very well designed, congrats!

  18. I loive the straight, clean look! Great for business sites

  19. I am absolutely loving the new theme!

  20. An amazing theme with minmalism style ! Looks very nice and itΒ΄s fully responsive πŸ™‚

  21. You simply hit the sweetest spot with this one Nick. Responsive, superfast and with a ton of customization like fonts, colors, bg & alternate slider layouts only two clicks away this one goes right on the top of the ET collection. I hope we will see more of them coming.

  22. Excellent work, visually and great layout. This will be a good seller!

  24. Very great themes. I Like this theme more than Evolution. ET rocks!!!

  25. Excellent theme, this will be seeing use on a business blog very soon. Really nice to have something truly usable, quick loading and very professional.

  26. Thank you! I’ve been looking and waiting for a theme like this for a long time.

  27. Wonderful theme and works nicely on mobile…which is refreshing.

    You may wish to test this more on how text is displayed on darker backgrounds (the text-shadow) for the carousel and footer areas.

    • We give the user the ability to choose unlimited colors, but with that comes a responsibility to choose colors that look nice πŸ™‚

      • Good point πŸ™‚

        You’re doing amazing work!

  28. love the theme really elegant

  29. Not responsive, sad (at least the blog section is not).

    • The entire theme is responsive.

  30. Nick, what about a megamenu in your themes? Do you really think it’s not important to have it? To me it makes the difference.

  31. Love it. Reviewed it. Bought the t-shirt!

    For me it’s one of your best themes to date.

    Does it mark a step in the direction of an Elegantthemes theme Framework at all?

  32. Fantastic job Nick, the menu hover is fantastic!

  33. Great job guys, very nice theme it..and fully responsive. Keep it up with the good work.

  34. Awesome, now you just need to start supporting wordpress post formats and you’re gold.

  35. Great theme, I have to admit I am elegantthemes addicted since long time ago but I have a problem Nick, your music I found in your themes is so delicious and elegant that I have a second addiction … Designs come from a great artist, a great artist has many ways to express himself and his talent, it is a gift for us and I want to thank you for both, I enjoy with a lot of pleasure.

    Your secret fan from … Spain (Canary) !!!

    • Thanks, I am glad that you liked my song! πŸ™‚

  36. Nick, you positively nailed it with this one.

    Let me break down some feedback for you…

    You create some beautiful work man, almost TOO beautiful.

    What I mean is sometimes the themes you make are so damn pretty, they can’t realistically be used by anyone in a “boring” industry, which many small business websites are.

    For instance, how can a “pressure washing company” (example of a client I worked for) use something like the ‘Sky’ theme, all of your work is gorgeous, but that makes it inflexible.

    This theme has found a perfect middle ground, IMO.

    • Im going to use this template for my power washing company πŸ˜›

  37. Beautiful work, that’s great theme.


  38. exactly what I was expecting from Elegant theme, “A Light Weight Theme”

  39. Love your work Nick. Awesome job.

  40. Superb, and the most elegant design ever added in your collection. And the blog layout is really impressive πŸ™‚

  41. It’s very nice theme, i like you so much this theme. Thank you so much to ET team.

  42. So clean, nice work! Thank you Nick!

  43. Nice theme, I like its small header and clean look, will use it for my future projects.

  44. Oh Nice Theme again to change and move on

  45. The theme is very nice, however, the homepage slider does not work at all on iPads. That means that it probably doesn’t work on any iOS devices.

    I know it’s not designed for mobile devices, but they have to be able to at least work with them because so much traffic is from them.

    I would totally use this theme if it was fixed, but until then it’s not an option.

  46. Wonderful theme, clean and elegant
    I will wear it soon πŸ˜‰

  47. Another great theme, but again IE9 problem with “Read More” buttons.

  48. I wish you had some free themes. That way, more people could have been tested you themes, including me πŸ™‚

  49. Hey,
    I’m new to all this and think the theme is great but I’m having trouble placing my logo. It seems to be constantly off-set and is interfering with the drop down menus.
    Any suggestions?

    • Thanks for nothing,
      I found location, within two weeks

  50. Did anyone else have trouble with TRIM not scrolling with Android?

  51. What really bugs me with this theme is that I can’t remove the recent work section… other then that it’s awesome πŸ˜€

  52. Loving this theme, but why is the sidebar widget not showing on mobile devices?

  53. Hi Nick…. Great membership and themes. Great Support too… Like the new social network icons. You are good!

    I’m using the Trim theme for a site and notice that the ‘fully responsive’ version on the iphone is great, but the secondary drop down menus and 3rd level navigation areas do not work… only primary navigation works. I wonder if I’m missing something or if it is something to do with having a custom menu in place.

    I also wonder if there is a way to just have the theme show up the old way… not fully responsive, and just a computer version on the iphone, mobiles, pads, etc. It would be nice to have an option to have it mobile friendly or just full size.

    Thank you! Johnnie

  54. Stunning Theme Guys!

  55. Hey Nick, I love the Trim Theme – 2 questions though:

    1-How do I get the little icons to show up beside the content areas? You have the wrench, bubble, and music notes showing up on the demo page, but I can’t find anywhere in the theme to select those icons.

    2-Is there any way to get the grey overlay with text to NOT be displayed on the featured slider? I had custom banners with text made for those featured images, but can not find a way to display them without the grey overlay at the bottom on the home page featured slider. Please let me know if that is possible as it would clean the look of the site up.

    Thanks – love your work.

  56. Very clean layout and nice color combinations.

  58. How do I get rid of the words “TrimTheme” at the top?

  59. Very nice theme. I loved the one with black background.

  60. i am using Trim Theme, and I want to had an image (.jpeg) to the footer area, any one can help me?
    (don’t have the image widget)

  61. Just as with the page above the Trim Theme social icons do not appear.

    I have all the URLs set and saved and I have Social Icons enabled.

    They never appear on the home page or any page.

    Look carefully at the above illustrations, at the bottom of

    “Lightweight and Super-Fast!”

    and just above

    “Tons of Customization Options”

    …you can see that the icons for RSS Feed, Twitter, Facebook and several other icons do not appear. Featured Active and the arrows and quotes images appear–all the others do not.

    At least on this page I can see white blocks where the images should appear–but on my site those do not even appear.

      • The top menu isn’t showing..Please help me..

  62. I was looking for such a “business” theme for a long time, and found it. Trim is simple, not overloaded and usable. I have also a few small reservations, but they can be quickly solved with the very good support of ET. Still learning this theme but I can see already now, that its potential is quite big. Good work.

  63. Is there a place to see other users sites who are using the same them? I would love to be able to see what other people have done.
