Absolutely loving some of the exceptional work available but it seems to be that there’s a complete lack of templates for everyday jobs/services. I appreciate that I may be overlooking some (so would be grateful for any pointers!) but I would love it if there were a far more extensive range of templates (just html for me) suitable for services such as tv repairs, plumbers, car repairs, domestic cleaners etc.

There are a 1001 photo portfolios, ecommerce and corporate templates but I’m struggling to find one decent one for any of the above categories.

Here’s hoping this improves as I could easily use loads of these :)

The idea of these templates is that they can be used for everything, making a template for “business / multi purpose” is going to be a lot easier to change into a plumbers theme than the other way around.

Where as if you create a template for just plumbers there might be a few sales but nothing compared to if you sell it for the purpose of being changed.

Thanks Ben and appreciate your input.

I fully understand what you mean but my point is that the ‘style’ itself of these sort of sites is different to your average ecommerce or corporate layout. While some of the templates available are superb, they do not translate well to everyday services. I’m fully capable of re-visualizing templates (and do) but there are limits as to what can be done.

The example services I gave were just that, examples, and I would have thought some decent themes that had colour/layout variations would actually be capable of catering for most of these sites… but unfortunately I can’t even find one (more than open to suggestions!). I would be a buyer of numerous licences for the right theme :D

Just to update….

Although there are issues with using this, I have settled on this one for now: http://themeforest.net/item/orange-responsive-html-clubrestaurant-theme/full_screen_preview/3831289

I still think there’s room for many more though. Seems like a daily check is in order ;) I can see I’ll be spending a lot here!!
