The most interesting themes for Steam

The real gamer spends a huge amount of time in the Steam client. Unsurprisingly, at some point, the standard interface just gets bored. Fortunately, there is an option to swap out the dull gray window for a brighter and more attractive one. With the new theme, your Steam will sparkle with new colors and you will finally start enjoying it. Here is a selection of the most interesting themes that can transform the interface of your game library.


How to install a new Steam theme

Before I get started, I'll briefly tell you how to install a new theme for those who just now heard that this is possible at all. The algorithm of actions looks like this:


  • Download the archive with the new theme;
  • Unpack it and move it to the C: \ Program Files \ Steam \ Skins folder;
  • (The folder with Steam can be in "Program Files (x86)")
  • Launch Steam;
  • Go to settings and select the "Interface" section;
  • Select the downloaded theme in the list and activate it;
  • Restart Steam;
  • Enjoy the new client design.

The most convenient way is to immediately download all the themes you like, then drop them into the folder with skins and only then apply them one by one to understand which one is best. And we decided to collect the most interesting options that many gamers use.


Old flat green

Old flat green

Let's start with a theme that can take you back in time and remind you of what Steam was like before Valve's designers decided to radically change everything. This is exactly the gray-green design that the client had 10 years ago, if not more. Of course, Old Flat Green has its differences, and it does not completely copy the old Steam theme, but this is more a plus than a minus.

In fact, the creators of this skin took the colors and all the best from the old Steam theme , added a readable font, intelligible spacing and decorated the windows in a human way. It turned out pretty cool, and if you still remember the client in gray-green tones, then you can definitely feel nostalgic.

Felicita

Felicita

Actually, this theme was made by anime fans for anime fans. On some sites where this topic is posted, it is written: "The skin should be liked by everyone who is interested in this topic." Nevertheless, in this theme you will rather be attracted by the excellent combination of orange and black. It looks really beautiful and organic, so you can ignore the anime characters that flaunt at the top of the client.

In addition, the fonts and indents are excellent here. The client will become more convenient to use and at the same time will not deviate much from the original. Worth a try for those who want to add more color to their Steam.

Invert

Invert

If it pisses you off that Valve doesn't give you the option to set a light theme on Steam by default, then the Invert skin is for you. The creators of this theme just thought that such a solution could be quite useful for most gamers who are already tired of staring at a black screen for days.

Invert doesn't really stand out, because in terms of fonts, spacing and the location of key Steam elements, it completely copies the standard client. However, here all the colors are inverted, which made it a great light theme. The advantage of Invert is that the creators have correctly selected shades for all elements, so the theme looks nice and does not hurt your eyes.

Pressure 2

Pressure 2

At first glance, this is a rather boring topic that does not really stand out from the rest, but you should give it a chance and, perhaps, Pressure 2 will become your favorite "skin" for the Steam client . The font sizes and spacing are well thought out here. At the same time, you will definitely love the color combination, because the creators perfectly combined black and orange on white.

By the way, in Pressure 2 absolutely all Steam pages were worked and even made the opening windows more elegant. In terms of convenience, this is one of the best options, and Valve's designers should take this theme into their arsenal when developing future Steam updates .

Air

Air


One of the interesting light themes is undoubtedly Air . She combines minimalism and elegance. At the same time, the design is done quite simply and at first glance does not really stand out, but it is worth putting it on Steam, and the client will sparkle with completely new colors. By the way, there is Air in the dark version, but it turned out to be somehow boring, so it's better to stay with the light version.

It is also very important to install the Roboto font for this theme. Without it, it won't be able to show you all its features, and even with the standard Air it doesn't look very pretty.

Metro

Metro

One of the dark themes that I personally found more elegant than the standard one. In addition, it makes the window more compact, which will definitely appeal to fans of minimalism. The interface has undergone a few changes compared to the default Steam skin, but despite this, in Metro it is much more convenient to get to the friends list and the download page.

It is also worth noting that the Metro theme offers several design settings that allow you to change the color shade, font and icons. Just a couple of minutes and you will customize this compact client for yourself to choose the next project for a new gaming session even more comfortable. For those who like the default Steam theme , this option will definitely come in.

Plexed

Plexed


An unusual theme that takes all the charms of the standard client design and makes them play in a new way. In fact, the main differences from the original Steam client here are only a dark blue background and the use of gray for the decoration of some elements. And the arrows "Back" and "Forward" were decided to highlight and stylized to look like games from the early 2000s. Here they immediately catch your eye, and you will definitely not be looking for a long time how to return to the previous client page or go forward.

This theme is perfect for those who are completely satisfied with the standard client and just want to add some color. The fact is that in terms of the arrangement of elements, spacing and font size in Plexed, everything is almost identical to the original Steam theme.

Rainbow dash

Rainbow dash

Option for those who want to fully decorate the standard Steam client . The theme is dedicated to the popular cartoon "My Little Pony", after installing it you will hardly recognize the familiar window of your game client.

The creators of this theme used literally all the colors of the rainbow to make the client window itself more attractive and at the same time highlight the key elements. We also worked on the windows, and also changed the font. Despite the fact that the theme uses many colors, they all go well with each other. There is no explosion of shades or solid porridge that will ruin the mood and discourage the desire to re-enter Steam . Rather, on the contrary, this is the case when, with a bright design, you look at the client in a new way and want to visit him even more often.

These are the themes we decided to choose exclusively to our taste. Now you know how to look for them and you can choose absolutely any option from the Internet. Perhaps your Steam client has been missing a new theme all these years, so experiment and have fun!
