I'm in the process of creating a professional website using WordPress and find myself at a crossroads. I'm torn between developing a custom theme for my site or opting for an existing theme from the market.

I'd love to hear about your experiences and opinions on this matter. Thanks in advanced!

If you have specific design and functionality requirements, consider a custom theme for greater control. If time and budget are constraints, an existing theme can offer a quicker solution, but ensure it aligns with your brand and can be customized easily. Anyway, choose based on your project's unique needs and resources.

I think using a theme can do the job as long as it is modular and uses something like pagelayer.

Selecting between a custom WordPress theme and an existing one depends on specific needs. Custom themes offer uniqueness but demand more time and resources while existing themes provide convenience but might lack originality.
