Personalizing your website’s appearance

Timber takes full advantage of the Customizer to manage the settings for your layout, spacings, sizes, and more as easily as possible.

And what better way to make style twists than with the live preview? Simply change any setting and see it take effect right way from Appearance → Customize. Make sure it represents your overall style and is in line with your brand personality. Consistency matters and helps you stand out from the crowd.

Theme Options

By going to Appearance → Customize → Theme Options you’ll see options that allow you to change the copyright text, add share services, and play with your custom JavaScript snippets.


We created a dedicated documentation article that walks you through all the available options regarding colors. You can read it here.


Timber delivers the whole 600 Google Fonts library at your fingertips. You can read more about where to find the right fonts for your website and how to customize them in this article.

Sizes and Spacings

Navigating to Appearance → Customize → Style → Sizes and Spacings enables you to customize the Logo Height (more details about it here) and the filmstrip images spacing (screenshot).

Naming your website is an important part of the customization process. By going to the Site Identity section, you can change the Site Title, Tagline, Logo, and more.

Add custom CSS code

You have the ability to insert your own custom CSS code straight into the Customizer and get a live preview of it. Go to AppearanceCustomizeAdditional CSS and add your custom code.
