Enfold and Bridge are both sold through the same marketplace and are therefore direct competitors. That is certainly the case since both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking webshops. Enfold vs Bridge, which is the better theme? We start with Bridge which does not mean it would be better.
The Bridge Theme
In this Bridge theme review we look at how this theme scores on a number of important points. Which page builders are used, what are the features for webshops, how fast does it load, and what other striking features are there. Bridge was launched in 2014 by Qode, a Power Elite Author.
Bridge Theme Rating
A good theme is immediately recognized by a good rating that has been built up over the course of at least a few years. That is more than the case with the Bridge theme. With a rating of 4.78 out of 5, it ranks highest on the Themeforest marketplace.
The demos of the Bridge theme can be edited with 2 well-known page builders, namely Elementor and WP-Bakery. I definitely prefer the former, although I also like working with the Bakery page builder. Bridge doesn’t target Gutenberg at all, which is a good thing. Gutenberg is a complete disaster and will never be a success.
Bridge Review: Demos
The Bridge theme comes with more than 610 demo websites. About 250 of these were made for Elementor, and a sloppy 350 for WP-Bakery pagebuilder. A good theme comes with many and well-styled demos and you are in the right place with Bridge. All these demos can be easily installed with 1 click, then you can continue working on them with your favorite page builder.
Bridge Review: Headers
A beautiful collection with all kinds of differently styled headers has been well thought out. I hope everything on the screenshot shows well, otherwise go to their own site and check out the layouts there.
Bridge Review: Blog
The variety in blog layouts is also striking, this has also been well thought out. The Bridge theme is also ideal for building blog websites. View the various options that Bridge offers below.
Bridge Review: Portfolio
I must honestly say that the Bridge theme is suitable for practically any type of website. For corporate websites, for shops, for blogs, and for very specific niches such as travel, education or music sites. Below is a screenshot of a 4-column portfolio layout. Bridge also offers great versatility and options when it comes to portfolios.
With Bridge you can build very good professional shops. You have tons of beautiful shop designs and shopping widgets at your disposal to make a success of your webshop.
Bridge is packed with special features and I’m not going to list them all here. I show three of them below, you can view the rest on the Bridge website.

For your online business the Bridge Pricing Calculator will always come in handy.

Bridge Theme Review Conclusion
This Bridge theme review is coming to an end, I’ll give you my overall opinion about it. There is no denying that Bridge is a great theme. One can really build any type of website with it, it has several good page builders in it and has a lot of good demo websites. Furthermore, it has many wonderful extra features and settings so that everything can be adjusted without technical knowledge.
Let’s continue this Bridge vs Enfold comparison with the Enfold Theme.
The Enfold Theme
Enfold Theme Rating
Most themes that are now in the top-selling theme lists of Themeforest came out in the years 2013 and 2014, including the Enfold theme. The theme has dropped slightly in the past year, but still has an insanely good rating of 4.80 out of 5. They say they have the best rating there, but I don’t believe that.
Demo websites of Enfold
Enfold offers a fair number of complete demo websites for all kinds of different niches. The number is a bit disappointing, I count 37 in total but the quality is very good. Often this is enough to make a good website.
Enfold Theme Review: Webshops
A large number of these demos are intended to create beautiful webshops, this all works very well. Enfold is suitable for Woocommerce webshops.
Enfold's page builder
Enfold uses its own Avia page builder, a very clear and easy to use page builder. The theme claims to be one of the user-friendly themes, and there is something to be said for that.
Headers Styles in Enfold
Unfortunately, the Enfold theme does not have a hypermodern header builder like many top themes. It does have a reasonable number of fixed header styles that you can apply with 1 click. It all works very well, but a header builder next to it would be a lot nicer.
The Style-Generator is very pleasant, but also not the newest of the newest. You can quickly set an overall style for your entire websites, but Top theme now also has Adobe Photoshop-like unlimited color settings.
Enfold has been designed for Woocommerce, and works well with it. You can also choose from many different shop layouts on the 1-click demo websites. Enfold is a great option for those who wish to create a restaurant website. WooCommerce bookings are one of the most powerful plugins to optimize your booking.
New: Parallax Features
The latest Enfold version has some significant design improvements through the use of parallax. We are not impressed because parallax has been around for so long and if they only come up with it now, hmm. But anyway good to have it.
Enfold Theme Review Conclusion
In this Enfold theme review conclusion I will start with a few negatives. Or shall we say, I identify where there is room for immediate improvement. Enfold still does not focus on the collaboration with a page builder like Elementor, something that made many other themes skyrocket in the rankings. The theme works with its own very good Avia page builder, but it cannot be compared with Elementor. Even though Enfold just released a new version, it is not a modern theme at all and really just not recommended.
Enfold vs Bridge Conclusion
There are quite large differences between Enfold and Bridge. Bridge is listed higher on Themeforest for a reason, it is just a much better theme. Not only that, I think Enfold should be much lower than it is. The theme is just poorly maintained and despite the latest upgrade it is still neglected in my humble opinion. There is also a problem that both these themes have and that is that the license you buy is only valid for use on 1 website. You are better off with a theme like Astra or Divi which can be used on as many sites as you want. These themes are a lot better and more stable than themes that are sold via Themeforest.
