5 WordPress Themes for Under Construction Blogs

by Simrandeep Singh on December 23, 2009

After purchasing a domain name and web hosting, the next step for any webmaster is to host their website. But if you have not yet designed your website, it’s recommended to display an Under Construction message to your visitors. You also need to display an under construction message if you are going to do a maintenance work on your blog.

You can easily put an under construction message on your blog’s homepage by activating a Under Construction WordPress theme. When it comes to choosing a WordPress theme, we have the option it choose it from freely available themes and premium themes. Nowadays you can easily find premium like free WordPress themes when you search it on Google. Free WordPress themes are of equal quality as of premium themes. The only major difference is you don’t get proper support with free themes. So in most of the cases you can just download and activate a free theme on your blog.

Here are some beautifully designed free WordPress themes for under construction WordPress blogs.

Changing Room looks cool. I wish I had know about this 8 months ago when my blog was still under construction. I would have taken a snapshot of it for posterity. Tempskin also looks really neat.
