Not purely themes, but MahApps.Metro provides Windows 8 Look and feel with a few variants like dark and light base themes with green,blue etc for text and others. Its pretty cool and can be used out of the box.


There are some Microsoft Themes in the WPF page on CodePlex:

Here's my expression dark theme for WPF controls.


You can download 7 free WPF themes from http://www.nukeation.com/free.aspx . I found them very useful. You should surely try it out. They are designed by the people who have desiged the official WPF & Silverlight Themes.


The direct link to the WPF themes project is here: WPF themes

Download the source code (currently there is no binary release) and check out the demo that comes with it to get an idea of the capabilities.

You will need to install the WPF toolkit in order to compile and use the themes.

This is an ongoing project, so I think more themes will be added in the future. It will probably ruin the the sites trying to sell themes to you, but it is great for one man shops that can't invest too much up front.


We use the Assergs Application Framework themes:

They have a nice office look and feel to it :)
