Are you a web designer? Do you have a need or urge to design your own website? Nowadays it is easier then ever with the plethora of FREE web page templates available to be downloaded, modified and uploaded to your own site!
People would have loved these types of sites 10 years ago! Some of them even have Flash templates also for free. We will take a look at 3 of the best sites for downloading and finding free web templates. We will run through what they offer, the quality of the templates and how easy they are to modify!
The first site we will cover is Free Website Templates which you can get to from here.
When you arrive at the site you will see some pretty nice free web page templates on the homepage including the template of the day. You will see links to download the templates as a zip file or to preview a mock up website using the template you are looking at. Hit preview and experience the template before downloading it.
You can click here to view the site preview and get the big picture of what I am talking about. I clicked on the preview link for the featured template and this is what I saw:
Continuing on I checked out some others which are exquisite!

You will see an images folder that has all your images, a PSD (Adobe Photoshop file) of the site, the HTML and the CSS files. Below you can see an example of the HTML. It is very clean and highly customizable.
Once you get to that page, you can click on a category. I choose High Tech and this is what I saw:
Clicking on the title of the image will show you the templates homepage. For example I clicked on the first one titled metamorphosis and saw this:
If you click on the bottom link that says click here to download templates 8966 you will be able to download a zip file containing the source files like so:
There is no PSD file for this site though but you do have individual images like the last site. So you should like the overall template if you are choosing from this site. If you need to HEAVILY modify the graphics it will be harder but not impossible. If you just want to change text and some header graphics you should be fine.
I tried many different sites and these two had the nicest easy to use free web page templates. The first site makes it much much easier for real deal customizations by providing you with the Photoshop PSD file so you can really modify the look and feel of your new website.
