21 Awesome HTML5 CSS3 Templates for your Website

To build your own website has become more and more popular and important. You might need it a website as an online resume for a job application or as a personal blogging website. If you have a small business you also need a website. And of course you need a website for your dog, your cat, your club, your clan and your neighbors goldfish :). Just kidding.

I’m personally a great fan of content management systems like WordPress, Magento, Drupal or Joomla. You just need to install the system, buy a theme for $50 and you have a professional website. There are also limitations with this concept. It’s sometimes really hard to make a small change to the design. That’s why I like to use HTML5 & CSS3 templates from time to time.

You don’t need a deep knowledge in HTML & CSS, but you need to understand the basics and how to read a documentation. I personally use HTML5 & CSS3 templates if I want to adept the design and add special elements. This website templates are perfect for small business and websites with just a few pages. If you have more content and don’t like to work with HTML code you should check out the best responsive WordPress themes.

I separated the HTML5 & CSS3 templates into 2 categories:


15 Premium HTML5 CSS3 Templates

I grouped similar templates together so you can compare them better.So let’s take a look at the 15 best responsive HTML & CSS templates I have found.
