My advice would be not to use WordPress at all. It might be tempting due to all the very cheap templates out there. But as you might have noticed it is then complex to customise and you are stuck with a series of limitations.
Wordpress is ok for blogs, but not a good choice for websites. We had several wordpress sites and have redone all of them. Mainly due to extremely slow performance. The same site as plain html or php site loads much faster. Your visitors must every patient and very interested in your site not to just click away from it. The wordpress version’s homepage often took so long to load, that you ended yup thinking that site does not work at all.
Therefore my advice would be to stay away from wordpress and look for a good web developer instead.totally disagree.

There are many poor slow WordPress websites out there because it’s easy to install and buy a theme. They then load them up with bad plugins to get it to do what they need.

There are many professional developer choosing WP to build their sites, and it’s a fantastic platform for a professional site.

WordPress is going through a bit of change recently, and some amazing development tools and frameworks are now able to help professional developers build some amazing things.
