5 Shopify Themes we love in 2019 for your online store

Choosing Shopify as your ecommerce platform is the most important online choice you'll make as an online entrepreneur. Choosing your Shopify theme is the second most important step. 

The team at Milk Bottle Labs only works with official Shopify themes purchased in the Shopify theme store. Whether you're a self-build Shopify user or if you've engaged an agency like ourselves, you'll still need to choose your theme regardless of whether you plan to customise or not.

One of the consistent areas of the Shopify platform is the theme store. Unlike the App Store, it does not have thousands of themes available. This maintains a high standard and makes your choice of Shopify theme much easier.

The team at Milk Bottle Labs love the following themes:

1. Parallax

Price: $180
We like it because: 

  • We love the range of themes from Out of the Sandbox but Parallax is a special one with a great mobile experience

  • It's extremely easy and quick to setup

  • Share your latest Instagram posts with your customers and followers

  • Feature a multi-level drop-down menu to help customers easily navigate your store

  • The product page renders beautifully on mobile and has multiple inbuilt theme features which will save the cost of apps in the long run (it's really important to choose a Shopify theme with inbuilt features as it saves the purchase of apps in the future)

  • The homepage design is clean and crisp, very professional looking and renders beautifully on mobile, which is really important

  • Multi-product order form

  • Increase cart value by allowing customers to add different products to the cart simultaneously.
