Wix templates

Your website is a window into your online presence. Whether you use it to attract customers, to showcase your work or to grow your business, you have to make sure of one thing: that it looks absolutely great.

But if you’re building your website from scratch, it can be an overwhelming task: how big should the fonts be? How tall is a standard header? Do I use a border around my images or not?

Luckily, most website builders offer premade templates. And Wix has some of the best-looking ones out there. But is it really the best solution for you? We break it down to help you find out.

The Pros

The first thing you’ll notice about Wix’s templates is that they look fantastic. They offer clean and modern designs, and best of all, there is a lot of choice available. At the time of writing, there are more than 300 of them available.

The amount of flexibility offered is also excellent. Wix uses what they call a “pixel perfect” editor, which lets you have complete control of the position of different elements on the page.

 

As you can see below, the templates are also neatly organized in industry-specific sections. This makes it very easy to find a template that perfectly fits your needs.

Wix template categories

They even have more refined subcategories for your profession. So for example, photographers can choose between landscape or wedding photography.

Likewise, the Portfolio & CV section has got something for everyone, from fashion designers to scientists.

Wix’s templates are also excellent for an Online Store, whether you’re selling skateboards or men’s razors (no kidding, they really have templates for those!). And if that’s what you need, check out our complete Wix online store review.

Likewise, the Restaurant & Food section caters to all tastes (pun intended). They even have a special Wix Restaurant app that lets you create an online menu, take bookings and orders. You can add these in seconds from the Wix App Store.

The Accommodation section lets you choose between 30 different designs. You can also use the excellent Wix Hotels app to take reservations online.

The Fashion & Beauty category lets you choose between Hair & Beauty themes or Fashion & Accessories. If your business offers appointments – like a hairdresser for example – you can make full use of Wix Bookings. It will allow you to accept requests and display your availability in a calendar.

Finally, if you want a blank canvas to start with, they have also that covered. Their Blank Templates let you focus on the layout, even if you want to use their Start From Scratch template!

So it all sounds pretty good, right? Well, there are a still a few cons.

The Cons

So, we mentioned the excellent amount of flexibility with these templates as a pro. But you should also be aware that too much freedom might not be ideal for everyone. Some people prefer a more structured approach. For example, website builders like Weebly or Jimdo let you move elements, but they snap to a grid so you’re less likely to mess up your website design.

This complete flexibility also comes at a price, unfortunately. If you decide you’d like to use a completely different template, you will have to start your website from scratch…

Another con is that the templates are not fully responsive. While Wix lets you tweak the mobile view, you have to do so manually. This can be time-consuming but has an advantage: you can use it to display mobile-specific information. However, they do not have a tablet viewer option.

Having said all that, Wix came up with a cool tool called Wix ADI (Artificial Design Intelligence). It’s supposed to build a website for you automatically so you don’t have to do any groundwork. Answer a few questions, fill in your social media links, and Wix ADI does the rest. We’ve tried it and the results are interesting:

On the one hand, the editor is very straightforward (you can only add or remove sections) and you can choose your industry designs. But ADI sometimes makes strange decisions. You might end up with weird color combinations or font styles, but you can always change them if you aren’t happy with the result.

Wix Templates: Final thoughts

So in conclusion, we’ll have to say we really like Wix’s templates. The sheer amount of choice and flexibility makes it a powerful solution to get a great-looking website in minutes.

However, remember that more flexibility isn’t always better. If you don’t trust your eye for design, you might prefer a more structured approach like the one offered by Weebly, Jimdo, or even the Wix ADI.

And if you’re still unsure about Wix themes, you can get more details in our comparative review of different website builders. You can also try Wix for free to see if it’s the right solution for you!
