Top responsive metro WordPress themes for 2014

Last Updated: September 20, 2019

Metro-style is all the rage for the moment, and this looks set to continue into 2014. Not surprisingly, 2013 has seen the launch of hundreds of responsive metro WordPress themes. They focus on ultra-modern, bold, flat design and are a great way to create an eye-catching website.

With so many metro WordPress themes to choose from, where do you start? I’ve found the best WordPress metro themes and created a great shortlist for you to choose from – and they’re all responsive (mobile-friendly), too.

Cluster metro WordPress theme

Cluster is a bold yet light theme from a reputable theme company, with beautiful typography and big header images to showcase your photos. While not explicitly metr0-stye, it does include some metro-inspired elements.

  • Full details here
  • Responsive design
  • Social media icons in footer
  • Flexible homepage layout
  • Unlimited colours
  • Big static image at the top of each page rather than a slideshow
  • Plenty of shortcodes to style your content
  • Rated 4.66/5

Mana metro WordPress theme

Mana is an extremely versatile metro-style theme that allows you to create a huge range of styles and layouts, with impressive features such as parallax scrolling to give your site extra ‘wow factor’.

  • Full details here (view the demo site and try the various demo buttons on the left – I think 2 and 3 are pretty good)
  • Responsive design
  • Social media icons in footer
  • Unlimited layouts
  • Unlimited colours
  • Choice of 2 slideshows
  • Extra features such as parallax scrolling image effects
  • Plenty of shortcodes to style your content, and loads of icons
  • Rated 4.58/5

And one more to consider, in case the above aren’t suitable

  • Octavus – nice with good ratings, but not shortlisted as it’s a very similar design to Cluster which I found more impressive.
