If you have a very good amount of fund, you probably think why should i use a free theme for my project? Main role of free theme starts from here, suppose you are a freelancer and want to create site for your client. but you think using a free theme will make a bad impression on your client. In my point of view free theme stands for trial theme. Before going to buy any premium theme you can just try a free theme and use it. Because if you are creating a website using a theme then before buying product, you can check that is it really useful for me or not. One more thing that we know by using free theme is the behavior of theme author because you need to deal with them after buying product for theme related supports. Therefore trying a free theme before buying will worth it.
