    Which is better looking is irrelevant if you have bought a premium theme.

    Go to your admin backend -> appearance -> themes -> add new

    Select upload and then the zip folder you presumably received your theme in. Then activate the new theme and edit the settings for it.

    When you downloaded your theme to your computer, I hope you made a directory called wordpress/themes. If not, do it and keep all your themes there. Do the same for wordpress/plugins

    I assume you are comfortable with FTP. I use Filezilla. Open your hosted site and find wp-content/themes and upload your new theme to that folder. Then, as Aventura54 said, go to Appearance/Themes and your new theme should be there. Then click Activate.

    Hope that helps. I am a newbie too.

    Your paid theme (they're not always premium!) should come with support and installation instructions. There may be some extra steps to get the site set up - like installing specific plugins that the theme requires. You need to follow whatever instructions the theme vendor included with the theme.
