Corporate and CMS WordPress theme ready for an online store – Sterling

Corporate, professional and classy. These three words is what your customers will be saying when they come to your website – powered by Wordpress and dressed up with Sterling. Sterling is a responsive, SEO and e-commerce ready template built for Wordpress. It’s advanced features, clean design as well as timeless styles will attract new visitors, at the same time keep existing ones.

This is one of those themes that are truly built to make WordPress a full blown CMS. As you go through the demo, you can’t miss the beautiful home page. It makes beautiful use of the fold, with it’s awesome content slider that can house videos, images as well as custom HTML. Note that there are plenty of options for the slider – including CU3ER (flash), layer and lightbox hero (shown below).


Excellent navigation – with smooth transitioning effects. I love how the menus are enclosed in rounded containers (gives it a softer, personalized feel). One additional thing to note is the use of fonts in this theme. Very subtle and discreet use of text shadows, and line heights – that contributes the overall effect. I say typography is top grade on this design.

Get ready for a shop?

That’s correct. Sterling is ready for Woo commerce (an e-commerce plugin for WordPress). This maybe seldom seen in corporate websites – but hell, why not right? The shop section of this template acquires the overall identity and style of Sterling: Sophisticated and full of class.


The Verdict

Overall – job well done. It is simple yet effective. Subtle, but elegant. Useful and packed with features – always a good combination. Sterling is a winner in all sorts of ways. You have your CMS website, your blog and even a shop. What more can I say.

  • Great collection of WordPress themes you have shared with us, thanks for sharing such a nice collection of themes, I like such kind of stuff that has been made according to users need. I also design themes, but for that I have taken the help of templatetoaster. As, theme generator saves time and generate high quality themes in a lesser. I also design themes with coding process, but sometime I lacked or stuck in a coding part so for that I prefer to use theme generator.
