You can also test out a free Shopify theme before you make the switch to a premium Shopify theme . Free themes also have much simpler code used in them. Free themes however have a lower level of customization in them, and the design elements used are quite generic. You can get many features of a paid Shopify  theme with third-party plugins if you are really looking for tweaking specific interactions on your website.
