Not required, but highly recommended, since the clients need to customize their websites. Without having options for customizing them, you probably won’t have many sales

Use the WordPress Theme Customization API;

https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

It’s part of the WordPress core, quick, powerful & secure. Moreover it doesn’t add anymore weight to your theme like any other options panel does now by comparison (because it’s already bundled with WordPress)

Theme Customization API is great for changing the colors and some other basic stuff, but I can’t imagine using it as a main Options Panel if your theme is a little bit more complex. I personally using the combination of Advanced Custom Fields plugin (with two paid addons – $25 dollars each but it is worth it) with Customization API for custom colors.
