I love the JW clean pro design.. very professional and the menu system looks great too.
The next option for me is “how easy is it to customize the look of the site?” Most content management systems have built-in templates that control the look and feel of the website, which is helpful for creating a site quickly, but how simple is it to customize those templates? At this point it is also worth asking if you can use your own default template simply instead of the one supplied with the program. I also have a preference for CMS programs where we can use different templates for different areas of the site. If so, it makes it easy to use a standard format for each page of a certain type which ensures consistency.
Wow MyBusiness Theme looks too cool for a good business site . This is a perfect theme that can be used for business product service with slight customizations 😀
JW Clean looks elegant. Though I would suggest one thing to people having some basic knowledge of css & html. Just use the default joomla template (ja-purity) and edit it to your wish. It’s not that difficult, just give a try!
I like joomla because of its flexilibity to use free templates to custom templates. I will try your mentioned free templates. Thanks for the links.
