Custom Website Design

Custom vs Theme (or Template) Websites

The design of your website is what separates you from your competition. To attract more visitors, your website needs stand out from the crown and needs to be attractive, uncluttered, easy to navigate and simple to understand.

You can have a 100% custom website built from the ground up or you can buy a pre-made website theme or template and use it as it is, or you can have this theme or template customized to give it a more original and distinct look.

The debate of custom versus theme or template websites is ongoing and is quite valid. Here is a look at the merits of both options.


A custom website is designed from the ground up for a unique look and feel and is populated with meaningful and relevant content. It is is built after significant research and analysis so that it suits your branding and business requirements. A custom designed website takes more effort and time more than a theme (or template) because it is specifically built to your requirements and makes your web presence unique. You can liken a custom designed website to a custom home that is properly architected and custom built to suit your exact needs and specifications.


A theme or template-based uses preconfigured package that has most of the common pages already designed. In theory you just need to add content and your website is ready. In reality, it is not as simple as that. You can liken a template-based website to a prefabricated house.  A pre-made website template can be used by multiple people so the creators of the template can offset their investment in building the template. This can result in a look and feel is not 100% unique. Still, theme or template-based websites are highly popular and with the large number of themes available, they can be a great choice.
