When you use a premium WordPress theme one of the options you'll want is a choice of layouts for your page. Look for a theme gives you four or five options. If your can choose your option with the click of a button …. very cool. Those kinds of choices are what makes a premium theme.
As an example, the default layout setting could be a main content area with a 300 pixel wide right sidebar. That's a common and popular layout for blog pages and static websites as well. The next choice simply puts the sidebar on the left side of the page.
The third and fourth choices for a layout using a premium WordPress theme reduces the width of the sidebar to 150 pixels, perfect for smaller widgets or ads, plus more width for your content area. Again, you should have the option to place the more narrow sidebar on the right or left.
Slimmer sidebars leave you more screen real estate if you prefer to put larger images in your posts.
The fifth layout choice in a premium WordPress theme might allow you to put sidebars on both sides of the page with a content area in the middle.
Each of these layout options should be accessible with a click of a button if you are spending your hard earned money for a premium theme. They should be very flexible and easy to use.
Premium WordPress themes generally give you more options and flexibility than the one's you get for free. Fire up your favorite search engine and look for WordPress premium or commercial themes.
