6 Best Tumblr-Style WordPress Themes 2019



As the name clearly suggests, Minblr is a minimal Tumblr inspired theme built for WordPress. The layout design is liquid and responsive which basically means that the layout of your site will adjust in a user-friendly way no matter the display resolution.

Some of my favorite Minblr features – besides being cross-browser compatible – are the 10 different color schemes, and support for child themes. HUGE plus on that!

The page builder that comes in the theme makes it super simple to change the overall layout of the of your pages. In fact, Themify's Page Builder is my favorite page builder on the market as it lets you visually build your pages in real time. This, for me, makes it better than WPBakery Page Builder and even Divi.

Wumblr is Themify's first ever Tumblr-like WordPress theme–and boy did they deliver.

Don't let this initial photo fool you. The theme has more to offer than just this Masonry style layout.

The Wumblr theme comes with over 8 style layouts options (including the one pictured above), 7 different theme skins to help change up the color of your theme and 9 post format options, including: general, video, notes, image, gallery, quote, link and status.

But that's not all that it has. As mentioned with the previous theme by Themify, this theme–and all themes by Themify–comes with a front-end page builder for faster and easier page building.

Grido is the third and final Themify theme to be mentioned in this WordPress theme round up. As the name would suggest, Grido displays your posts with the sort of grid-like layout that you see above.

Using the Themify Page Builder, you can change the layout of your front page (or any page really) to look however you like. The demo gives you a nice idea of the various layouts that you can build using the page builder.

Another nice feature about this theme is that you can set a color for the background on a per post basis to add a bit of variation to your site. Plus, if you buy this one theme, you also get another theme for free. Money saver, yeah!

You did it! You've made it to the last Tumblr style WordPress theme on the list. As a reward for being so awesome, I wanted to wrap things up with a bang.

The last theme on the list is, OldCar, a creative and bold WordPress theme was just too captivating to not mention. I'm not going to lie; this one is my favorite!

The theme has a sidebar on the right and allows for an unlimited choice in regards to color. It also supports Google Fonts so that you can make your blog really stand out.

It is 100% responsive and comes with two layouts which include the fluid grid that you see pictured above, and a normal layout – just in case you'd like to dial it down a bit.

The theme also includes shortcodes and a nice masonry styled portfolio that really stands out.

All and all, this theme was my favorite, but my hope is that you found a Tumblr inspired theme that suits your needs.
