Top 15 Better Discord Themes

With that said, let’s get right into our top picks of the 15 best Better Discord Themes. The BandagedBD team has verified all the themes on this list.

1. The Black Hole Theme

This theme made by MonsterDev is one of the top-rated Discord Themes. It’s definitely aesthetically pleasing. I personally love the space-y look of this theme. The Dark black background is easier on the eyes, especially if you’re a night owl like me!

With over 35 thousand downloads, it is loved by many.

2. The Basic Background Theme

This is another really popular theme on the Better Discord Library. This theme made by DevilBro lets you take your Discord Client to the next level. You can easily set any background to your Discord client with this theme.

You can even change the opacity of the theme and set an accent color. This makes it an extremely powerful theme. With over 78 thousand downloads, this theme gets a lot of love.

3. The Frosted Glass Theme

This is one of the nicest looking themes. This theme made by Gibbu looks like you’re looking at your picture of choice through frosted glass. It shrinks down the Discord UI by a bit, and I think that looks beautiful.

The default image that comes installed is also very pleasing. You can open the CSS file and easily use any other picture of your liking as well

This theme also has over 78 thousand downloads, and it deserves the love it’s getting!

4. The Horizontal Server List Theme

This is a simple one. This Better Discord theme basically takes the server list from the left side of the screen and puts it at the top of the screen. This is another one by Gibbu. The cool thing about this theme is that you can easily use it with other themes.

For example, this is what the Horizontal Server List theme looks like, paired with the Frosted Glass theme.

5. The Server Columns Theme

This Better Discord theme by DevilBro is also a very simple one. Unlike some of the other Better Discord themes on this list, the Server Columns theme doesn’t mess with the appearance too much. In fact, it leaves everything as is except the server list.

This theme changes the server list to a grid like container to display servers in columns. You can edit the .css file to change the number of columns.

By default, the Discord client has only one column, if like me, you are in a few dozen Discord Servers, scrolling through this one column to find a specific server can get very tedious.

The server Column theme has about 3 thousand downloads, which isn’t a lot. But it is the most practically useful theme on this list.

6. The Great Mountain Site Theme

This is a very beautiful theme. The colors, object’s opacity, everything seems polished. This theme features the great mountain site, with a beautiful view of the moon in front of it. If that doesn’t sound beautiful, I don’t know what does.

This theme made by DevilsLynAvenged is one of the many themes they have made. This one has over 15 thousand downloads. Check it out if you like the way it looks

7. ClearVision Theme

This is another very polished Better Discord theme. The Clear Vision Theme looks extremely pleasing, especially with the blue accents. Although, its overall look might not be for everyone. But I love this theme a lot. It has somewhat of a futuristic feel to it.

Usually, I prefer the material design in themes. But this one looks really nice, and I can easily recommend it to anyone.

But this theme has so much more to offer. For starters, it’s extremely customizable. You can change the color accents, background image, blur percentage, fonts, and much more.

8. The Reborn Theme

This is another one by MonsterDev. This Better Discord theme is focused on customization. Similar to the ClearVision theme. You can try out both themes to see which one suits you better.

This theme has about 24 thousand downloads. That is considerably more than the 5 thousand downloads of the ClearVision theme.

9. The Midnight UI

Here we have another polished Better Discord theme. It has a very different look from the traditional Discord. Even though I like the look of this theme, I realize it wouldn’t be for everyone.

But I have to say, don’t dismiss this theme before you try it. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but this theme reminds me of a simpler, better time.

This theme is also very customizable.

This theme made by Tropical has over 20 thousand downloads.

10. The Elysia Theme

The Elysia theme is an RGB Better Discord Theme made by the Purple Wizard. The Elysia theme has over 21 thousand downloads. It has gotten increasingly popular because of how customizable it is. And also, how easy it is to customize it.

You can just go to to start customizing the theme. Then you can directly download it from there.

Editing with the text editor is also an option.

11. Dark Discord Theme

This Better Discord theme made by zzzmario is one of the most useful themes on this list. It doesn’t change the look of the Discord client too much. The only thing it changes is the color of Discord itself.

Normally the discord client has a light grey color to it. But this theme changes that to an almost matte black. Which in my opinion, looks a lot better!

I definitely recommend you check out this theme.

12. The Nocturnal Theme

This Better Discord theme is quite similar to the Dark Discord Theme. But instead of changing the color to a matte black. The nocturnal theme by Spectra changes the color to a dark blurple.

But unlike the Dark Discord theme, not only does it change the color, it resizes a few things, and modifies the overall look ever so slightly. It doesn’t bother me that much but, your mileage may vary.

13. The RadialStatus Theme

This Better Discord theme made by Gibbu is another simple one. It doesn’t change the Discord client. It only makes it so, the online status wraps around the profile, instead of being an indicator at the bottom right of a profile.

This kind of change won’t be for everyone, but if this interests you, go right ahead.

Many people seem to like this change. The Radial Status Theme has over 20 thousand downloads.

14. The Wonderful and Green Forrest Theme

This is another one by DevilsLynAvenged. I found this Better Discord theme extremely relaxing. No bright colors, nor an over the top design. You just sit there admiring the beauty of nature. Honestly, thank God for this theme, I was starting to forget what trees look like (get it? Because of the pandemic? no? okay.)

Anyways, this is a really nice theme with about 10 thousand downloads. I recommend you check it out.

15. The Sunset Theme

Here’s another Better Discord theme by DevilsLynAvenged. DevilsLynAvenged really knows how to make aesthetically pleasing Better Discord Themes. This theme features a beautiful sunset as the background, giving the entire theme a pink accent.

Shadows are used in this theme to make the text stand out. Although, I would have liked it if the shadows weren’t this bold.
