Easily the most popular PC gaming client in the world, Steam offers a ton of games and intense sales quite often. But while the user interface of the program itself has seen improvements over the years, the default look of Steam can still be lacking.

Did you know you could download custom skins for your Steam? They’re simple to install and can change the entire layout of your gaming experience the next time you go to fire up your favorite PC title.

In the end, it all comes down to preference. Custom skins can change things like fonts and colors, so it’s all up to what you’d like to see. Here are a few of the best Steam skins to take a look at to get yourself started.

Blue Pulse

Black and blue are the stars of this theme, combining to create a sleek, darkened vibe with white text that stands out. This theme is easy on the eyes, especially when it comes to the brightness factor. If you’re someone who darkens every window they can while using the PC, this is a good theme to start out with.
