Deco – Free Child Theme for BigBox

BigBox (as the name implies) was originally designed with the idea of making WooCommerce stores with thousands of products faster and more efficient. That goal was certainly achieved and is evident in the main theme demo which scores a 95% in a GTmetrix report with over 2,000 products. The advanced integration with FacetWP also ensure it’s easy to find the exact product you need in the large catalog.

Since BigBox scales up so easily, we wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to use BigBox on a “normal” size store, or even a very small one. Previously we added the “Lifestyle” demo which features a customized homepage using the new Gutenberg editor, along with a few other stylistic tweaks. This was done only using the “Additional CSS” option built in to the WordPress customizer. 


To take things one step further we have created “Deco” — a free child theme that extends the base functionality of BigBox. It adds many graphical changes and changes certain layout options to create a totally new shopping experience.

The main differences include:

  • “Late Art Deco” stylized components
  • Simplified header, search, and navigation
  • Simplified product listing, with gallery thumbnails below the image and full product description to the right
“Deco” child theme

Deco is a free download and installs just like any other WordPress theme. However, it was developed using the same techniques as BigBox and includes a full set of developer documentation. It is a great learning resource for developing advanced child themes for WordPress/WooCommerce. View the setup documentation.
