Here is a beautiful round up of some awesome Joomla based templates for different uses from around the web.

All of these templates have been picked from Joomla template providers that we have used in the past and have a good reputation for design and support.

Feel free to share and comment on the selection.

GavikPro - Store Box


 An beautifully design template for Joomla and VirtueMart. Lots of nice jQuery javascript effects to help make for one really slick shopping cart store.

JoomlaBamboo - Arcadia


 Another out of the box design from JoomlaBamboo. A unique template that is very different to regular sites that you see around. Anthony and the team there have put together another great unique template. Perfect for a unique blog or portfolio website and of course is fully responsive and mobile ready. Oh, and built on the lovely T3 framework.

Joomlage - Scope 


One of the newer Joomla template providers on the block have put together this beautiful interior design or home builders template. Great use of background textures on this site to compliment the image content and of course is also responsive and mobile ready.

Joomlart - Argo


 A slick Windows Metro inspired magazine/news Joomla template. This kind of styled websites aren't easy to design and build when needing to think about all the responsiveness and different layouts that need to be created but Joomlart have done a great job on this one. If you're a fan of the 'metro' styling, I believe Microsoft got sued on that naming, then this template is for you! Good Job Joomlart.

Joomlart - Fubix


 Another metro inspired template by Joomlart. No as heavy as the first but still quite a nice design.

JoomlaShine - Escape


From the guys that build templates the Joomla way, here is a great template that is responsive and very easy to customise. Get your hands dirty and modify the template the way Joomla is intended to be modified. Attach PowerAdmin on to it and administrating this template can't get easier.

Rocketheme - Alerion


Ok, so this is by far the best conference template I've seen in years, or infact ever. Slight and subtle parallax effects in this. Not over done and very nice. Rocketheme have an eye for the extra wow kind of sites.

Shape5 - Blogagzine


A very nice minimalistic and masculine styled template, great choice of images in the default template too. A differently laid out template with the traditional navigation and key function areas moved away from the same old cookie cutter layouts and of course all responsive.

Check out the demo at: http://www.shape5.com/demo/the_blogazine/ 


ThemePartner - Alphara


Simple and straight forward, conservative style and very professional. A great template by ThemePartner for a straight forward, no frills, no bells and whistles business based website. Fully responsive with lots of abilities to customise the template.

ZooTemplates - ZT Dian


Image heavy and big sliders! I like. If you haven't seen the home page of the Joomla Beat website then you might not have seen my big slide that I've used there. Quite a fan of the sliders at the moment and the use of it on this template is beautiful. For a fashion website this is great, for a photography website, even better. If you have some great images to show off then this is a great template for your Joomla site.

Thats it for this round up of Joomla templates. Hope you like them.
