Are you the type of person who enjoys simple and uncluttered looks on a theme? Clean Home, our new addition, is a crisp and structured theme wielding a traditional two column layout with two widgets areas.
But don’t let Clean Home’s simple looks deceive you since it hides some great functionality to help you personalize how your site looks. It also comes with four color schemes, including a “snowy” and a “sunny” look —so both northern and southern hemisphere people out there can rejoice.

I may have just found my new favorite theme! Gonna test drive over the weekend!
Jan 14th at 3:53 pm
Wow, another new theme for WordPress.com bloggers!
Looks like WordPress.com keeps putting more features for us… Great work!
Jan 14th at 3:55 pm
Jan 14th at 3:56 pm
That was cute. I love how you worded everything, it sounds interesting to me, can’t wait for your other postings.
Jan 14th at 3:56 pm
This looks great… I will be checking it out soon.
Jan 14th at 3:57 pm
Ok… for the first time in ages I am going to try a new theme out…
Jan 14th at 4:03 pm
More green themes, please.
Jan 14th at 4:08 pm
I quite liked it. However, the pics in pages (not posts) don’t align properly. Everything going to the left. If you can fix that, I’ll use it again
Jan 14th at 4:11 pm
This is so clean! I love Minimalist themes!
Jan 14th at 4:15 pm
Looks very neat! Nice
Jan 14th at 4:16 pm
Thanks for the new theme! Looking forward to more themes.
Jan 14th at 4:24 pm
This is a good one and will go directly into my choice list.
Jan 14th at 4:28 pm
Theme looks crisp and clean with great white space . . . but my soul lives and breaths beautiful, brilliant color.
Jan 14th at 4:35 pm
Like it, sleek, simple, clean & easy to read. Looks great, may have to try it out soon!
Jan 14th at 4:38 pm
I like the header widget aspect of this theme. “Almost” makes me want another blog!
Jan 14th at 4:40 pm
I like the idea looks great!
Jan 14th at 4:49 pm
overwhelming title font sizes, the principal reason.
distinctive low profile is the future…
ah well, chaque un son gout!
Jan 14th at 4:51 pm
Seems quite comfortable, but its too simple. Looking forward to more creative one
Jan 14th at 4:54 pm
I love a Clean Home! I may have to change from Coraline to this one. I’m going to go play with it now. Thanks WordPress!
Jan 14th at 4:56 pm
Problem with the “Dark” theme – captions on pictures are the same light color as the rest of the text, making them unreadable.
Awesome theme though – I might just roll with it!
Jan 14th at 5:05 pm
It’s not bad… I would like to have more journalistic type theme choices.
Jan 14th at 5:21 pm
Like that too.
So many themes, so little time…
Jan 14th at 5:21 pm
Modern, simple… in a word: clean!
Good name, great design.
Jan 14th at 5:29 pm
They’re starting to really look alike.
Jan 14th at 5:32 pm
I really appreciate the fact that you guys keep coming up with new themes for us. For some reason, when I previewed it came up in the same screen as if I had changed it rather than a separate screen like it does with other themes. Caused me a little panic for a minute!
Jan 14th at 5:33 pm
I wish there were drop-down menus and maybe a Home tab (when I preview by blog with the theme there’s an odd looking empty space). But otherwise a clean, well spaced, visually appealing theme that’s great for everyday blogging. Thanks!
Jan 14th at 5:33 pm
Now this is what I’m talking about! It may be very different from what I’m currently using on my business blog, but i wonder if it wouldn’t work better?! Gonna give it a shot!
Jan 14th at 5:37 pm
Thanks for continuing to add more features! I look forward to getting notices of new posts in this blog. X
Jan 14th at 5:38 pm
Love it. Love, love it. It’s amazing how much work we put into looking for a really simple look. This is what we were looking for back then:)
Jan 14th at 5:45 pm
But I can’t like the blue line in there.
Jan 14th at 5:50 pm
The typography is gorgeous, and I’d consider switching just for that, but there’s insufficient room for pages. They run into the top widget.
Also, please consider offering a link and archive page. It would help keep the clean aesthetic.
Thanks for all you do!
Jan 14th at 5:51 pm
This one is super sweet, nice work Matias!
Jan 14th at 6:14 pm
It seems interesting.
is very nice feature of being able to place the widget in the top.
Jan 14th at 6:22 pm
Dont like such clean themes…
Jan 14th at 6:29 pm
I love clean themes and this one is especially inviting. Thanks!
Just one comment on Posts with Galleries, it doesn’t appear that there’s a link back to the main Post from the Gallery attachment pages.
Jan 14th at 7:45 pm
Ooo I’m tempted. Certainly worth a preview. Good stuff WordPress.
Jan 14th at 8:03 pm
Yeah new theme! If only my room is this clean haha.
Jan 14th at 8:05 pm
I’ll have to try this one, especially since I’m spring cleaning my home this month.
Jan 14th at 8:07 pm
This theme is really nice but the deal breaker for me is it’s only 2 columns! Would be great if we had more themes that had custom header, custom background AND had a 3 column option
Jan 14th at 8:13 pm
Love the way you are constantly rolling out new themes. I too love clean themes and will explore this one. It does look a bit similar to some of the other themes like 2010. I look forward to more clean magazine style themes like Inuit Types.
Jan 14th at 9:25 pm
Awesome template. Thanks WordPress.
Jan 14th at 9:36 pm
Lovely, going back to Minimalist … Thanks for another theme to try out.
Jan 14th at 9:40 pm
I’m digging the header widget concept. Aesthetically not very exciting though. But always love new themes – thanks for your hard work!
Jan 14th at 10:02 pm
Terrific. Simple, clean, orderly – as the title suggests. Yet I somehow find myself liking Freshy over the many other themes I’ve seen.
Does this theme (Clean Home) permit a custom header and whatnot?
Jan 14th at 10:11 pm
Wow, very simple!
Jan 14th at 10:30 pm
Nice one–and I love the title!
Jan 14th at 10:33 pm
Nice & simple.
Jan 14th at 10:48 pm
I think there are just too many plain themes. 10 of them should be enough, really. Otherwise I love the fact that new themes are coming more and more often these days.
ps.: Automattic-guys, please don’t forget that those who have once switched to featured-image-themes can only change to other featured-image-themes now, and this really narrows down our possibilities.
Jan 14th at 11:17 pm
Very nice… clean & simplistic is always in demand. Thanks!!
Jan 14th at 11:53 pm
Nice theme I would use it soon.
Jan 15th at 12:22 am
It’s simple and clean
Jan 15th at 12:36 am
Thanks, but I’ll stick to my current one
Jan 15th at 2:00 am
Very, very nice! I might need to consider changing my current theme.
Jan 15th at 2:44 am
Uncluttered. Simple to navigate. Easy on the eyes. LOVE this ‘clean’ look. Well done WP.com, well done!
Jan 15th at 3:05 am
Too bland and lifeless for my liking, sorry. Tell you what, I would love, and I’m sure many other too, to have quaint jazzy art-deco and pop-art influences integrated in WordPress themes! Pretty please with mascarpone on top?
Jan 15th at 3:35 am
Hey WordPress, I like the new theme, Clean Home but the blog title at the top is too big and I hate the font. Can I change it for free in my free WordPress.com blog? If so how do I do it without paying. That’s the only think I want to change now; the title, color and font. Please assist and here is my blog url. Please respond soon.
Jan 15th at 4:33 am
It looks clean but a little less attractive. Nonetheless, it appeals to those who prefer simple and tidy layout.
Jan 15th at 4:40 am
Snowy and Sunny looks? Really I must check that out!
Jan 15th at 5:19 am
Like it… maybe enough to change from Simpla.
Jan 15th at 6:49 am
Exactly what I was after, nice and plain, good choice of fonts. No complaints.
Jan 15th at 7:11 am
Really nice looking theme!
Jan 15th at 7:28 am
Simple themes are the best. Of course, typographically creative themes that are simply organized are what I mean, not boring themes. Boring themes are boring.
Jan 15th at 8:35 am
Way too clean for me
Jan 15th at 10:46 am
Might be interesting, but I recently added my favourite theme and I’ m lovin’ it!
Jan 15th at 11:34 am
Simple theme is my choice.
Jan 15th at 12:47 pm
Hey, it looks pretty good! Sometimes simplicity is the best. I have just changed my theme, though, so I don’t think I’d change it again this soon… But I’ll definitely consider it once I want to change the theme again. Thank you for your hard work! I’m expecting a more ‘wild’ theme.
Jan 15th at 1:35 pm
I love the simplicity and the customization options! In good hands those two combined will make a wonderful site look and feel. Thank you very much for this theme
Jan 15th at 2:11 pm
Jan 15th at 2:20 pm
Thank you very much! Hope you have a great day.
Jan 15th at 2:51 pm
I like my current theme but I may fiddle with this one for a sec. It looks great.
Jan 15th at 4:57 pm
Nice and simple- very nice.
Jan 15th at 6:20 pm
Excellent work reaching out the the right designers, WP.com…
Jan 15th at 6:59 pm
First impression: This is going to be one of my favorite themes. Really crisp. This theme will be excellent for newsy blogs.
Jan 15th at 7:49 pm
I’m kind of bored with the plain themes. They all look the same.
Jan 15th at 8:33 pm
I feel it’s kind of enough with plain themes now
Jan 15th at 9:00 pm
It looks nice for a future blog I may get, but just not my style for my current one. Good job though with something simple but different from the other simple themes.
Jan 15th at 11:11 pm
Very beautiful theme! Love the clean look!
Jan 15th at 11:30 pm
What is the maximum size for images on this theme?
I have been waiting for something clean and white to come along which would be better than my present Journalist 1.3.
I’m looking for two columns and the ability to upload images 1024 wide…multiple images (galleries) per post. Please take a look at what I have currently.
So far it doesn’t seem to exist. Hope something comes along soon!
Jan 16th at 2:56 am
I love simple themes. I can’t believe there’s a theme that has magnetized me to switch from Inuit Types (with CSS)! I’m trying this one on and playing with the CSS. Can’t wait to see what other people have done with it when the showcase gets updated.
Jan 16th at 3:11 am
Very simple…will not bring much attraction….. but thanx for that!
Jan 16th at 4:07 am
Jan 16th at 5:32 am
I checked it out, it’s cool. Like it. You should have stressed on the article that you can do a lot of cool stuff with it. Thanks.
Jan 16th at 5:40 am
I read the post again, yeah, you stressed that you can do a lot of things.
I put a plaid background, and it’s amazing.
Jan 16th at 6:00 am
Cool… more creative theme =)
Jan 16th at 9:00 am
It looks interesting
Jan 16th at 10:43 am
Nice themes, so simple.. I love simple, like I use for my blog FADASTIC themes…
Jan 16th at 11:36 am
Brilliant idea …
It reminds me of CPW site/blog.
Jan 16th at 2:48 pm
Wow, so nice and clean …
Jan 16th at 3:16 pm
Good Another new theme. I am using twenty ten & clean house is not good enough to attract me. Bring some scientific themes for science bloggers.
Jan 16th at 3:39 pm
So fresh, so clean.
Jan 16th at 5:26 pm
I like this.
Jan 16th at 5:55 pm
I might try this…
Jan 16th at 6:33 pm
It looks like so simple, another form of complexity. The color is white plain. I may try it.
Jan 16th at 6:44 pm
Very simple theme…
Jan 16th at 7:57 pm
Why is it so hard to find themes/templates with widgets/columns on the LEFT?
Jan 17th at 2:14 am
I like it! It’s clean and “fresh”
Maybe I will try it.
Jan 17th at 2:37 am
I’ve been waiting for this one! So relaxing to read without my attention jumping all over the page. I just love it.
