Great to start if not customizing

Great design and layout but difficult to customize.

Good for magazines
By , for WP 3.9

In my opinion twenty fourteen theme suits best for magazine-styled blogs or very visual webpages. The vertically-oriented left side bar is not a very user friendly idea in my opinion and some colours should be changed. However it works well if your main content are pictures and not text, as post area is quite narrow.

CSS could be much more simple.

From the first look design looks clean and simple, but when you start inspecting or trying to customize something with your own CSS...

I don't like the way CSS is written it has some hacks which makes it harder to customize. For egzample, sidebar background is put not on sidebar itself but on .site:before {}

Nice, but too narrow
By , for WP 3.8

A very nice-looking, neutral blog theme with a lot of great features. Unfortunately, even though it has the tag full-width-layout, it is anything but. It is a left-aligned layout with a maximum width of 1260px, which will leave a blank space to the right on any larger screen. Even worse though is the fact that even if you disable the content-area sidebar and set posts or pages to the "full-width" template, they are only centered in the container, not made wider. The content width is always restricted to 480px which is extremely narrow for all but the most light-on-content sites. This borders on buggy behaviour.

As the articles in my blog can end up being quite long, this unfortunately makes the theme unusable for me in its current form. My readers would have to scroll down endlessly.
