According to a survey by Visual Objects, 20% of small businesses plan to start using a website in 2020. 

If you're one of them, then you might choose to build your site with WordPress. Although there are plenty of WordPress alternatives designed for different types of businesses and users, WordPress is a popular content management system that powers millions of websites.

WordPress's popularity is, in part, due to its ease of use. Rather than needing to code, you can simply install WordPress themes and WordPress plugins to quickly design and extend the functionality of your website. 

In this post, we'll focus on WordPress themes. Below let's take a look at over 20 WordPress themes and why they're ideal for small businesses.
