There are 100+ themes to choose from here at WordPress.com, and many of them have customizable backgrounds, menus, content layouts, and headers you can change yourself (like our new default theme Twenty Ten), and we have many more new themes planned.
But you can also take your site’s customization a step further and completely personalize any theme’s stylesheet by changing fonts, colors, borders, backgrounds, and even the layout of the site using the Custom CSS upgrade.
Many users have made a beautiful home for their content using one of our 100+ themes as a base and customizing the site with the Custom CSS upgrade.
If you’re not sure where to get started with CSS (it does take a little experience with HTML, and a willingness to learn), make sure you check out the CSS Help links in the Custom CSS Upgrade Support page, which has some links to to tutorials and explanations around the web. If you have a friend who’s good with CSS, this might be a good time to buy them a pizza and ask for a lesson!
As with all WordPress.com upgrades (except for domain registration), you can purchase the Custom CSS Upgrade and cancel free within 30 days if it’s not to your liking.
Here are a few sites on WordPress.com using the Custom CSS upgrade that caught our eye:
Whole Lotta Lovely

Foody Two Shoes
We love seeing your beautiful work on WordPress.com!
