Several WordPress themes out there offer professional-looking and highly creative single-page designs to cater to all types of businesses. Below you will find 80 of the best one page WordPress themes that can help you create the site you’ve always imagined.
Most of the themes mentioned here are fully responsive, retina ready and include visually stunning parallax scrolling effects. While their focus is on one-page layouts, many also offer multi-page site templates.
This list will help you find the best theme to take your business site to the next level. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get cracking!
Brooklyn is a beautiful responsive one page WordPress theme with sleek typography, abundant white space and lots of features.
With Brooklyn, parallax scrolling effects, 8 different skins (all visible in the demo) and 7 different header styles give your website a unique look.
Additionally, Brooklyn comes with a built-in shortcode manager for easier shortcode insertion into posts and pages. The theme is translation ready and includes an advanced theme options panel. The normally $19 Revolution Slider is included free of charge, along with 3 other custom plugins and 365 Font Awesome icons in 8 different categories.
While Brooklyn is a true one-pager, it also supports multiple-page websites.
The one page version of Divi features an interesting version of sticky side navigation (located on the left in the demo), somewhat similar to that of a slideshow. The top navigation, meanwhile, comes in different styling options. The Divi page builder is incredibly easy to use and straightforward — personally, of all the page builders I’ve ever used, Divi’s has to be my favorite. With its simple interface, you can create, save, and load page layouts — even sell them to other Divi users in packages. Or, you can use any of the several premade layouts the Elegant Themes developers have already built into the theme.
Divi, like all other Elegant Themes, features the ePanel theme options panel, which allows you to customize every part of your theme’s design and also its general SEO. Besides all that, you also get standard Elegant Themes features including multiple shortcodes, secure coding, solid documentation, and a very affordable price tag.
There are plenty of themes that can lay claim to offering a one-page layout, but none can offer the wealth of options and stellar functionality of TheGem.
All of the design elements you associate with a good one-page website are present in this theme: a full screen hero slider (which can be created courtesy of the bundled Slider Revolution plugin), a choice of six header styles, and the ability to create full-width sections utilizing the bundled Visual Composer plugin.
What’s more, there are a number of customization options, including fonts, colors, and over 2,500 icons – each of which are also customizable.
It’s a rare occurrence, but there’s very little we dislike about TheGem. Scrolling is smooth, animations are tastefully implemented, and the functionality is on point. It’s a solid contender, and could easily be the go-to solution for creating your website.
One-page websites can fulfil a myriad of responsibilities, but ultimately they should compel visitors to take action. One Page Pro is a new kid on the block, and offers a number of features to help you build a standout and flexible one-page website.
This theme employs a sleek yet vibrant design, with a number of customization options available via the bundled GoodLayers drag-and-drop page builder plugin. However, if you want to get up and running quickly, you can choose from one of three demos, and use a plethora of blog, portfolio, and gallery layouts (which can be further customized ). You can also include multiple sidebars, and use the built-in Genuis Wrapper to add images, HTML5 video, and many more elements to your pages.
What’s more, One Page Pro includes a multitude of Google Fonts, and the ability to upload your own typefaces through a custom admin panel. Finally, the theme also includes a dedicated maintenance mode, to enable you to work on your website before it goes live.
Overall, One Page Pro is a solid theme that offers a number of thoughtful features. Given its price and feature set, it could be the ideal theme for you.
Scalia is a powerful WordPress theme for creative businesses which can help you build stunning one-page sites to showcase your portfolio.

The shortcodes enable you to combine various design elements; from styled boxes, images and forms, to maps, alerts, full width areas and more. An option to add video backgrounds to your pages is also available. With the Visual Composer you can further customize page layouts and add other elements to make them even more appealing to your users.
Scalia comes with two premium slider plugins for incorporating slideshows in your pages – LayerSlider and Nivo Slider – which both enable you to create visually stunning and interactive media elements that will wow your visitors and potential clients.

Unlike most one pagers, Visia makes use of lazy loading. In other words, your images will load as users scroll down the page. This results in huge page load speed gains. An Ajax contact form, a shortcode editor and video support are included.
Dignity is a powerful portfolio theme built on the Bootstrap 3 framework with numerous features. The home page itself comes in 12 different layouts, all of which can be previewed in the demo. Dignity comes with parallax scrolling support.
Its full-screen images are retina-ready and the responsive layout supports background video from YouTube and Vimeo or even static images straight off Flickr.

Nervaq is a fully responsive portfolio theme from PixelEntity. The single pager has a clean, elegant design that draws eyes to its beautiful typography. The scrolling, however, although incredibly smooth, is a touch too fast.
The theme works great for businesses, corporations, or even apps. Ajax keeps each of your portfolio items expandable and the entire portfolio filterable. Some smart parallax scrolling effects allow full-screen images to span the backgrounds several subpages. A Google Map location image expands when clicked for more detailed directions.
As you scroll, a small tab scrolls with you on the top right-hand side of the screen. When clicked, it expands to show a full menu position on the right side of the screen, plus several clickable icons that redirect to your social profiles. A few other neat animation effects keep the design fresh and modern.
Retro Portfolio is a very unique single page WordPress theme, with a singular design. Note: “singular” is not equal to “bad”. If anything, it’s the very opposite — Retro Portfolio has a full, interesting design that’s sure to keep your visitors engaged. The typography, icons, menu, and the page layout all contribute to a unified design.
A stylized contact form, several content animation effects, and more make this theme amazing. An Ajax powered portfolio is filterable, and each item can either be linked to an external website/page or can be expanded to let the user preview more details. In fact, Retro Portfolio even allows you to insert a YouTube/Vimeo video into the expandable lightbox for each portfolio item. Each page can have its very own custom widgetized sidebar.
A Nivo slider with a custom slides manager allows you to create galleries easily with a drag ‘n’ drop function. Retro Portfolio is affordable too, at just $30 for all those good looks.
SCRN is a plain single page WordPress theme that gets the job done.

Portfolios are filterable, and each item will expand into a larger lightbox preview, with YouTube/Vimeo support. All things considered, SCRN is utilitarian, functional theme at an affordable price.
Ego is a very popular, sleek one page WordPress theme with a creative beautiful design. For starters, Ego has a unique header style that shifts to an alternate color with every word typed in a page’s header (check out the preview to see what I mean).
The “team” section has an animation effect that displays the job title of the member in question when his/her image is hovered over with the mouse. Each team member’s profile is expandable, so you can let users view more details about each of your team member without them having to redirect to a new page.
A neat “service breakdown” bar allows you to showcase your services in a creative way. If your most prominent service is WordPress development, you can set 75% (or however much you’d like) of the bar to be taken up by “WordPress development”. To accompany that, there’s a traditional three columns for you to go into more detail about each of your services. The Ajax portfolio is expandable, yet not filterable.
Ego claims over 200 options that can be customized in its advanced theme options. It’s not hard to see why this little proud single pager already has nigh 2500 purchases.
Nature is a one page, responsive WordPress theme powered by the rock solid Bootstrap framework. The developer claims to focus in on showcasing your portfolio and testimonials in a creative way to use your existing clientele to maximum effect.
The portfolio is somewhat unique, as it allows you to showcase a few major projects in a slider (the “major” represented by the size of each slide), as well as a grid of smaller portfolio items. The expanding feature for each slide is smooth and quick. In the demo, a custom slider built for you to display testimonials sits up right next to a series of bars that demonstrate your most used/most popular skills.
It comes with an Ajax newsletter subscription form, 400+ Google fonts, Flex Slider free, auto re-sizing images, and more. All things considered, even though Nature doesn’t have the most cutting edge design, it does have quite a bit of function clocking in at an affordable price.
Ronika is a fresh new one page WordPress theme. It comes with a bouncy, creative look, some seriously cool animations and effects and undisputedly beautiful typography.
In the name of new and different, Ronika’s theme demo’s home page has its portfolio as the very first section. The portfolio is expandable, but not filterable. Additionally, each portfolio item can have a customizable size, as opposed to most portfolio themes that only allow one standard set of dimensions for each portfolio item’s featured image.
Each home page element slides into view thanks to some cool animation effects. Each effect can be customized — you can play around with the speed at which and distance from which the portfolio item loads. It comes with over 300 hand-picked retina ready icons and some new custom social sharing buttons. Ronika has a unique design, refreshing to see after so many similar themes.
Coalition is a minimal portfolio theme with a very singular look, quite unlike any other single pager you’re likely to see.
For starters, the navigational menu is on a right sidebar — a sidebar that can contain widgets and can be customized for each page or category the front end user is viewing. At first glance, Coalition could easily be mistaken for a multipage theme. Template Builder allows you to create and customize each page to your liking. Coalition has a ton of white space between each page transition.
A visual shortcode editor has a live preview ability. The portfolio is filterable and expandable and supports video from nearly all major video hosting services, and even self-hosted video. Built on the developer’s own Avia framework, Coalition is search engine optimized and quite popular with ThemeForest members.
WP Singular is a clean portfolio theme with a bold, flexible layout. It has some really awesome typography, a filterable and expandable portfolio, and numerous other features.

The unbranded, Ajax-powered, advanced theme options panel makes inserting one of the many shortcodes a breeze. 11 custom widgets power the theme: Adspace, blog author info, contact info, Flickr streams, social profile display, search, tabs, cycling testimonials, Twitter feeds, portfolio, and latest posts. Over 400 custom Google Fonts are integrated with the theme, and you can choose from 50+ pre-designed background textures and patterns.
Two menu locations, a child theme creator, and extensive support documentation make WP Singular well worth its price tag.

Responsive and retina-ready, the theme comes with 14 different demo header styles, so you’ll have an almost-exact idea what your website will end up looking like even before you start. The theme options panel controls over 100 options, which includes the 500+ integrated Google Fonts and several background images & textures & patterns.
The progress bars included in the list of 30+ shortcodes has a unique rollover effect — the bars only fill up when a user hovers his/her mouse over them. 400+ icons from Font Awesome, Icomoon App, and Entypo are supported along a colored lightbox. The theme is also consistently updated with new features.
Gothica is a full WordPress heme with a fresh, unique look to it.

Aqua Page Builder allows you to easily customize your home page layout. Revolution Slider (normally $15) is included free of cost in the theme package. 5 post types — standard, video, link, gallery, and audio — are present.
Gothica is heavily reliant on Ajax, both for its expandable & filterable portfolio and for its blog. All things considered, it’s a beautiful theme at an affordable price.
