Here are the best Kodi 17 / 17.1 Krypton compatible skins and themes for 2017 which can be used on various platforms Kodi is installed on.

Kodi is arguably the biggest name in media center software these days, and while there is a place for Plex, we think Kodi caters to a slightly different market. That market also seems to be very fond of skinning Kodi to look just the way they want it to be, and for that reason, it is a good thing that the app has support for the application of skins wholesale.

Skinning is at the heart of Kodi, and there are some excellent options for those that like to customize how their software looks. Below are half a dozen themes that we think you could do much worse than try out, and as they are all free to install and try, there is little reason not to spend ten minutes flicking through them.

What do you have to lose? Nothing at all, but you could come out the other end with a gorgeous, re-skinned Kodi on your hands. Let’s jump in, shall we?

Pellucid

A nice, clean interface designed to offer living-room comfort while providing the information you need in a way that does not over-complicate things, Pellucid is a great place to get started with skinning Kodi.

Aeon Nox 5: Redux

Building on previous Aeon skins but making everything look much more futuristic, or at least modern, this theme is one of our favorites. Check it out and we think it will become one of yours, too.

Amber

An easy-to-navigate interface that does away with all the cruft that some other skins can bring to the table. Minimal, but not to the detriment of usefulness.

AppTV

Ever wanted to make Kodi look like it’s actually a slightly modified Apple TV? Well, then you’re in luck!

Omni

Similar to other skins, this is minimal but with everything where you need it. Omni goes further by adding an omnipresent menu for quick navigation, too.

Titan

If there is a theme to these skins, it’s simplicity. Like the others though, Titan keeps all the information you need without overfacing you.

Whether you try one or all of these skins, we are sure you will find something worth your time. Kodi really comes into its own when skinned, and these are just some of the options available.

All of the above listed themes are available to download from default Kodi repository.
