Last week I showed off our new Classic White theme, and today I’m giving you a closer look at Bedazzled, which uses a background image, fonts and colours to create a softer look with some depth to it.

We wanted to make this theme very easy to navigate and use, which you can see from the large navigation block and breadcrumbs. The 10-column grid, effective use of white space, geometry and symmetry combine together for a theme that “just works” from a visual standpoint.

 

    

 

Another advantage of Bedazzled is its flexibility. The 10-column grid allows you to easily adapt the theme to your needs. For example, on the category pages, you can choose to remove the left-hand side sub menus and replace them with an additional product column. There’s also plenty of space for category, brand and promotional banners — feel free to just go crazy.

Want to check out it for yourself? You can play around in our demo store to see all Bedazzled has to offer.

Key features

  • The subtle geometric background pattern provides depth
  • Soft colours with a hint of Tiffany’s
  • Elegant font combinations and extended kerning for headings
  • The 10-column grid is extremely flexible and adaptable to your needs

Perfect for

  • Jewelry and accessory stores
  • Could also work well for clothing and health and beauty merchants

How to get it

To use Bedazzled for your store, just log in to your control panel, navigate to Design and click “Apply this template.” If you haven’t upgraded to our latest version yet, you’ll need to do so to use any of the new themes. All you have to do is:

1. Log in to your Bigcommerce control panel.
2. Click the “Try it now” link on the blue bar at the bottom of the screen.
3. From now on, you’ll be using the new control panel and have access to the new themes.

    @MermaidCompany:disqus: We’re sorry to hear that you don’t like our new built-in blog. You can definitely still use WP as your blog. You would just link to it as a subdomain.

    However, none of our themes are available on WP. You would need to get a designer to create a custom theme that looks like your store.

    Hi Romi, if you know a little HTML/CSS, I would encourage you to use Firebug or Google Chrome Developer Tools to inspect and “test” your changes before you make them permanent in your trial store. Another option would be to work with a designer to customize your store just how you want it. For your convenience, we partner with a vast network of excellent designers and developers. http://bigcommerce.com/experts

    I’m thinking to switch from bigcartel and do like this theme. But I’ve been trying to get rid of this geo background but doesn’t seem to work! Can someone help.

    To start with, I would encourage you to use a great Firefox plugin called Firebug. This will allow you to see and essentially test “CSS” changes before making them live in your store. This will also give you a sense for where the CSS files are located.

    In addition, I would encourage you to visit our community forum. We have a bunch of clients and design partners, who are in there frequently. They can answer many of the design questions you may have. http://forum.bigcommerce.com/

    Nice theme, but I’m having a STINKER of a day trying to customize it. Was the CSS written by five different people??

    Just found this new template today before seeing this on Twitter. I love it and I think it will work great for my wedding paper goods store.

  • Glad to see BC coming out with some new themes, however, I’m hoping to see BC develop some more advanced themes rather than sticking with the simpler, white, empty looking designs.

  • Do you have a demo store for the Classic White theme?
