One simple way to stand out of the crowd for a theme is to have horizontal scrolling, instead of the usual vertical one. It changes the whole look, without the addition of any other element.

Mostly, horizontal scrolling is dominated by the photography niche themes, and it’s rarely found in any other niche. So, most of the products I’m about to recommend are for photography niche only.

This compilation consists of best horizontal WordPress themes, all capable of delivering a premium experience to the visitor.

So, without wasting any further second, let’s check out with the list!
