Final Words

Are you using any Free template from this list? If not, let us know which theme you are using. If you are running low on budget, Free themes are best to start a business.

However, in my personal opinion, I will suggest you choose a premium theme. Because Free themes come with limited functionality, fewer customization options, and poor support. You will find only a few developers out there who are offering great support for their free templates.
