Woodmart vs Salient comparison  💥
Salient vs Woodmart, we compare these themes on their suitability for building web shops, loading speed, number of demos, quality of their demos, the type of page builder they use and how easy they are to adjust. Both multipurpose themes have very good sales figures on the Themeforest marketplace. How do these themes relate to each other?
WOODMART THEME (Salient vs Woodmart)
Woodmart is one of the Woocommerce themes that are rapidly emerging. Not surprising because the theme offers many special qualities and is now also compatible with the most popular page builder out there, Elementor. The theme is suitable for any kind of shop and has little to do with wood, even though the theme is called that way. This theme has been specially developed for the construction of web shops, so I expect a lot from it.
Below you can see the appreciation that Woodmart gets from people who bought the theme, and I must immediately say that 4.95 is a score that hardly occurs with themes on the Themeforest Marketplace.
WOODMART INSTALLATION AND DEMOS
Installing Woodmart is very easy. The theme does not have a free version so you will have to buy it first and it can simply be installed via the standard Wordpress theme installer.
It is recommended to install one of the many ready-to-go designs. Woodmart offers about 60 very nice complete designs for web shops in all niches out there, so furniture, tools, clothing, etcetera. Below you can also immediately see how easy it is to adjust the color combinations in the layout.
Woodmart comes standard with the Bakery Pagebuilder, but since version 5.0 the theme is completely compatible with Elementor. This is a huge improvement, Elementor is one of the best page builders out there, especially when it comes to the pro version.
We perform a speed test with the theme under quite optimal conditions, so with cache plug-in and all images optimized. This theme does not indicate that it is specialized on loading times, but the results are very good as can be seen in the image below.
with optimized images and cache plugin
WOODMART HEADER BUILDER
Advanced styling options and multiple HTML elements in the headers, almost anything is possible. Woodmart also has ten standard header styles that can be adjusted with 1 click.

Below you can see how easily Woodmart allows you to adjust the header and what a huge choice there is already standard without custom adjustments.
WOODMART THEME REVIEW MEGA-MENU
To have a beautiful mega-menu, people often spend a lot of money on expensive plug-ins. In the case of the Woodmart theme, this is not necessary because the theme comes standard with a great mega menu as shown below.
WOODMART QUICK SHOPPING
There are great shopping themes that have all the options a top Woocommerce theme should have. Woodmart belongs to this class and has quick shopping for your webshop as standard.
WOODMART THEME REVIEW: PRICING
The theme only has 1 price option and that is paying $ 59 for each separate theme. So if you have ten websites you want to install it on, you can, but it will cost you $ 590. In my opinion the price is very okay, but only if you are looking for a good webshop theme for only 1 website. In the case of 2 or more websites, other themes are much more attractively priced and in some cases even better than Woodmart. Check here the best webshop themes for .
WOODMART THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
There is nothing bad to say about this theme. This is one of the best themes there is to build web shops and it is rising in the rankings and it is better with every upgrade. It works perfectly with the Elementor pagebuilder since the last version and that's great too. Yet it is true that, as I indicated in the chapter for the price above, there is boss above boss. The perfect theme for shops & websites is Divi and Astra is a very close second. These themes can be installed on multiple sites and the Divi Theme for example costs only $ 89, and comes with the Divibuilder full version! Woodmart comes with Elementor, but that's the free version we're talking about then.
SALIENT THEME (Salient vs Woodmart)
To start with, before the start of this Salient Theme review, I have to tell you that the theme has been in the top of the best-selling themes for years now on Themeforest.net. Okay, currently in 11th place, and highest ranking ever maybe in 4th place. There are much better sold themes but Salient has absolute top features that we will take a closer look at.
As a matter of fact, buyers are more enthusiastic about the theme than they are about any other theme. It has an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 based on 5700 ratings. For a premium theme with many options, it is a super-fast loading theme. The builders of Salient are currently claiming one Google Pagespeed a score of 97%, we will come back to this in a moment.
Salient Pagebuilder Editing<
With the latest version 11 of Salient it now has the front-end page builder of the WP Bakery Page Builder. Themes have to keep up with the times, of course, all toppers have frontend pagebuilders with Thrive Architect with the most impressive I think, followed by Divi and Elementor. Instead of images, we show you below in a video how the Salient page builder works. The WP Bakery Pagebuilder (formerly: Visual Composer) is one of the oldest and best out there, let's say the number 4 right now (my opinion).
Salient Theme: PageSpeed and Y-Slow
I did not check it myself with the speedometers concerned, but they show this on their website. Those are really anti-social good scores for Google Pagespeed and Y-Slow (GT-Metrix). Without a doubt impressive. It is very important for a website that it loads quickly, because visitors are impatient nowadays and are quickly away from sites that do not immediately have something to show.
Importable demo websites
Like every self-respecting theme Salient has beautiful easy to import layouts. At the time of writing it says on their site that it concerns 285+ demo layouts. A nice number but not a leader in this area. The layouts do give a very good impression and in the end 1 layout is enough so we will not give any negatives for this in this review for Salient.
Salient Theme: Lazy loading
Lazy loading means that images are not immediately shown in their full resolution. They appear immediately but cloudy and slowly pull up. This ensures that other elements on the page load faster and the entire website is visible to visitors much earlier. Normally people use a plugin or a CDN service for this, but with Salient this is not necessary although there is nothing better than a professional CDN-service if you want a super fast website.
Salient Theme review conclusion
We are not going to bore you here by mentioning all sorts of things that practically have all themes in this Salient review. We have raised the main plus points of the theme and there are few minus points. This can be seen from the extremely high rating that buyers of the theme gave it. The theme is definitely worth its $ 60 that is being asked for it Themeforest.net. That is a standard price for a good theme. Click on the button below to go to their site for more information. As a web designer, Salient is not one of my favorites, but I also have it in my collection and I sometimes use it for customers. You can find my personal favorites in the best Wordpress themes .
SALIENT VS WOODMART CONCLUSION
First of all, thank you for reading this Salient vs Woodmart comparison to the end. Both themes are 100% compatible with Elementor page builder which is great. If you have the money to install Elementor Pro I would definitely do that , the difference between free and pro is very big. Woodmart is a real Woocommerce theme that people buy to build a shop. Salient loads a lot faster than Woodmart and is the better choice for normal website building. Both themes are well worth their money if it is bad for 1 single website.
In case you want to provide 2 or more websites with a theme, I do not recommend both of these themes because then it will be much too expensive, since a separate expensive license will be required for each website. In that case, you can much better use Astra or Divi as it will save you money for multiple sites. In addition, these latter themes are ranked higher in my top 10 themes for  than Woodmart and Salient.
