Best WordPress Themes for Beaver Builder
Here are the top 3 WordPress themes that work best with Beaver Builder page builder plugin. These themes are well coded, light-weight, SEO friendly and easy to extend / customize. Above all, these themes are built and supported by amazing developers.
Beaver Builder Theme
Beaver Builder Theme is the official theme by Beaver Builder team and is available with the Pro Version of Beaver Builder. It comes with the following page templates.
- No Header / Footer
The Default page template is a full-width template without any sidebar. This makes it easy to use Beaver Builder plugin with the theme. Every time you create a new page, you don’t need to change the template settings. Page Builder plugins work best when they can take control of the entire canvas.
No Header / Footer template is a good choice when you want to create a sales funnel, landing pages or coming soon pages. You can see a demo of some pages that we have created using our PowerPack Beaver Builder Addon.
Sidebar template, as the name suggests displays a sidebar on the right or the left based on theme settings.
Beaver Builder theme offers customization options like
- Multiple Header styles
- Sticky and Fade-in Header
- Typography settings
- Color Presets and Custom Color schemes
- Blog Layout options

GeneratePress WordPress Theme
GeneratePress is a popular WordPress theme with over 300 5-star reviews for the free version on WordPress.org. It comes loaded with powerful customization features. The theme also has a Premium Version which adds more awesomeness and power to the free version.
For most of the users, the free version is good enough as it provides great control over layout and styling to build websites. Here’s a video overview of GeneratePress
The only limitation with using Genesis is that it doesn’t come with a full width or blank page template. To fix this, you can use the free Genesis Dambuster Plugin. It provides you great control over various parts of Genesis framework without the need of writing code.
You can check out my previous article about using Genesis Framework with Beaver Builder Page Builder Plugin.
Genesis is a powerful framework and if you are an intermediate or advanced developer you will love it. But, if you are a beginner, you will need to often use Google to get things done. Genesis has a very active and mature community so, it’s easy to find answers to your questions.
If you are looking for an easy way to get started with building beautiful websites, I would recommend going with Beaver Builder theme. The reason is that you will have a single platform to manage support, updates and licenses for both Beaver Builder Page Builder plugin and Beaver Builder theme.
If you are looking for an amazing, free WordPress theme with great features then go with GeneratePress. It provides a lot of features and functionality. The premium version has a lot more to offer. This could be your best pick if you don’t want to spend money on a WordPress theme.
Lastly, if you are already experienced with Genesis then there’s no need to look elsewhere! It’s simply the best choice for developers.
