Pinterest is one of the most popular and elegant social image sharing websites today. Compared to its older brothers like Flickr, imgur and Photobucket, Pinterest has seen considerable growth. Critics argue the reason behind this is the element of “social sharing”. Integrating Pinterest with Facebook led to just that. People tend to interact more when they see a real name or a face – someone they can subconsciously create a connection with.
In the WordPress realm, Pinterest style themes have been a huge hit. Almost all the popular theme companies have started to add at least one, if not many, Pinterest style WordPress themes to their collection. These themes sport a grid based or masonry tiled layout. Each post is contained in a tile (with or without an image). All of these themes are responsive, which enables proper rearrangement of the tiles when the browser is resized. They’re mainly used in photoblogs, personal blogs, portfolios and other sites which list collections. We’ve listed some of our favourite Pinterest style WordPress themes below – we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Today there are literally thousands of appealing WordPress themes available in a number of great marketplaces. Choosing the correct theme can be a bit of a pickle. The term “appealing” is highly subjective. The Bard of Avon once said:
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
No matter what your visual taste is, it is always a smart idea to first conduct a background check on the theme you’re buying. Is the company’s support reliable? Does the theme slow down your site? What about the refund policy? These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself before buying a new theme. Rest assured, the themes we’ve listed here are from Themeforest and other reputable WordPress theme marketplaces and individual companies. If you have any questions or feel that we’ve missed out a great theme, please give us a shout!
