Add Class to Your Blog Using Tumblr Themes

Tumblr has become quite an attraction. Some say that soon there may be more people googling the word “Tumblr” than the word “blog.” The very language of content creation and curation has changed direction thanks to the tremendous growth of Tumblr.

Whether you’re just now getting started on the platform or only looking to give your site a fresh new look, these 12 free themes show off what Tumblr’s design community is about.

1. Watercolor

You can splash some color over your header with this modern design. The hint of paper texture does wonders underneath your content.

2. Block Digital

This theme is thick black lines on white that boldifys anything you like.

3. Boston Polaroid

If you have some hi-res photos to show off, this theme will hang your masterpieces on a nice wide canvas.

4. Color Shades

If you want to use a canvas that’s not just a white space, try this fun scroller. It will allow you to pick a color palette from an interesting widget that floats.

5. iPad Interface

Your readers will get an interactive experience using this unique theme that works with a touchscreen menu.

6. 912px

If you are looking for something classic with a scroll that makes your profile top of mind, stark and solid, this theme will be your choice.

7. Boxes

This gives you the grid look, thanks in part to the rise in interest of Pinterest. The theme’s raised tiles make it classy in small formation.

8. The Stitch

Somewhat unorthodox but quite creative, this theme is chock full of fabric textures and will reveal your content in a sliding accordion menu.

9. Castles in the Snow

Here’s another grid theme, mixing bold lines and diagonal textures keeping your posts popping on the page.

10. Ipsemet

There’s a little too much empty space at the top, but this theme keeps plenty of air around your posts. Drop shadows onto a cool grey background and a pop of color to your title, and the package is complete.

11. They’ve Gone Plaid

Why not chunky text on a subtle plaid background? Of course, and it’s customizable with plaid colors?

12. OKMove

Just like a blog, but in 3 dimensions. You will need to preview this theme to see what we’re talking about.

Using gentle textures, nice modern lines, and even some very creative content displays, one or more of these themes may be the KEY to making the best uses of Tumblr to increase the look and value of your blog.

  3. We as humans, have a tendency to be a bit more inclined towards aesthetic experiences.
    Though we need to have good and strong posts but if the design and layout of our blog is not pleasant, then visitors won’t bother themselves to come by.

    Tumblr themes are definitely class apart with their innovative and eye grabbing themes.
    Even cell phones look better with good themes then we can give guess the major importance of themes. It adds value to our unique articles.
    So many themes are available in tumblr that you might get confused about which one to select. Ha Ha

    Thank you Vinnet for giving us a glimpse of the motley of themes available on Tumblr. Have a great day.

    1. Hi Krishnan,

      I have never used Tumblr for any purpose and have read that you can blog there free of cost.

      But the only thing you have to take care that images you upload there should be of high quality.

      If you know then may I know whether you upload only images or share you whole post?

      I would like to use it soon.


  5. Hi Steve,

    It’s new stuff for me because I didn’t know that Tumblr user can change different theme.

    The themes you have mentioned above will give a new look to your profile at Tumblr.

    I have read that Tumblr is the free blogging platform and you can blog their by sharing the images which can be helpful for many other people.

    We all seek for some great images through Tumblr.

    I hope to use it soon.


  6. Hey Vineet,

    I have never tried tumblr before as its a micro niche blogging platform and I already own a blog and I am doing well on it.

    But seems like I must give tumblr a try for driving more traffic to my blog. I’ll try out the themes you listed above on my blog.

    But here is a suggestion, please upload the screenshots of the theme along with the theme name and description so that we can have a idea how the theme looks without going on a third part link.

    Anyways, great post Vineet!

    Have a great day ahead!

  7. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless
    I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading
    links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site
    covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
