Free CSS

Rating :

Free CSS has 2642 free website templates coded using HTML & CSS in its gallery. The HTML website templates that are showcased on freecss.com are some of the best that can be found in and around the net. The website itself is very basic though and as there is no search function to allow you to filter through the website templates so you have to sift through them all one at a time to find out their features, this is a major drawback.

OS Templates

Rating :

OS Templates offer some of the best website templates that can be found on the net. They  update their website regularly with premium and free HTML templates as well as PSD templates.
Whether you are a private person, a freelancer or a company, you are free to use their free website templates for both your commercial and personal websites. There is no search function to help you filter through the templates, which is a pity although the template previews are a decent size and are labelled by features such as HTML5 and responsive. At time of reviewing there are 270 free web templates available.

Styleshout

Rating :

There are currently a very limited (22) amount of free templates available here but they are all high in quality and definitely worth a visit. Beautiful handcrafted HTML5 and CSS3 website templates  with good attention to the details making them premium quality but free of charge. All designs are free of charge and available for personal and commercial projects, in exchange for accreditation. 
They also say their templates are updated on a regular basis. Again, no site search but templates can be categorized by label to help you find the right one for your needs.

Webflow

Rating :

"Webflow gives designers all the power of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. But instead of writing code, you manipulate the real, working website, visually,  just like your favorite design tool." That is the blurb from the webflow website, the reality is that it is yet another Drag-and-Drop site builder similar to wix, weebly, squarespace and many others. I have included it here,as opposed to the others, as it is newer and people may not have heard of it. Like most site builders you start off on a free plan with limited functionality and can upgrade from there for a fee. Like all the others it is still a good option if you can't code, don't mind forced ads/branding and need limited website functionality.


Medium

Rating :

This is actually on article with a limited (37) number of free website templates as opposed to a dedicated template website but I have included it here as it includes some excellent premium quality templates for free. No search capability but as there are limited templates it's easy to scroll through and find one that's right for you with features like flat design, responsive layout, jQuery sliders etc.

Free Website Templates

Rating :

There are around 350 free templates here at time of reviewing as well as many other premium (paid) templates. These free templates really are no strings attached - you can download each template for free, modify it and create your own website with it. If you're a web design company, you can even use it for your clients as long as you don't charge them anything for the templates. You're allowed to use the templates without linking back. The website does have a search function to help you filter through although it is basic. The templates previews are large though which helps you quickly sift through them.

HTML5Up

Rating :

Again, there are currently a limited (45) amount of free templates available here but they are also all high in quality and definitely worth a look. They are all hand coded HTML5 and CSS3, fully responsive website templates making them premium quality but free of charge. All templates are available for personal and commercial projects, in exchange for accreditation. Again, no site search or even labeling but with so few it hardly matters. There are live demo previews though which allows you to fully explore the templates without needing to download and test.

Templated

Rating :

I like templated. They keep things simple. A quality collection of 866 simple CSS, HTML5 & Responsive site templates released for free under the Creative Commons license. The templates are all top notch and feature live demo preview. If only they had a categorization system or site search to more easily find the right template, the only flaw in an excellent website.Visit Website


Theme Wagon

Rating :

There are a limited number (175 at time of reviewing) free templates at theme wagon but they are all of a very good quality with premium features such as quality design, parallax scrolling and responsive layouts in many of the free templates. There is a site search function but it also includes the premium templates in results so be careful you don't fall in love with a template before realising you'll have to pay for it!

W3 Layouts

Rating :

This is probably my favourite place to get free website templates. There is a huge selection (2881) at time of reviewing and yet it is easy to find what you want as all templates are categorized as well as labelled for search so you can easily find a template that is right for your website as well as previewing each template in demo mode. In terms of usage,  you are not allowed to remove back-link to w3layouts in template unless you have donated for template, this is probably the only downside. But you can use the resources for personal and commercial projects.
