10 metro style wordpress themes

Ever since MicroSoft launched its Windows 8 platform, its metro style UI has inspired wordpress themes to be developed. People liked the metro design and wants their blogs or websites to have a similar appearance.  <!–more–>The central characteristics of metro style wordpress themes is their ‘block’ designs. Each block can represent a category or a section of the blog and is identified through the different colors that each block will have. It is an interesting UI innovative and I am not surprised that most folks are loving such a change in their interface.

If you are a fan of such a design, here are 10 metro inspired wordpress themes that you can consider:
