1. Arctic: Zephyr

There is barely any doubt that Arctic Zephyr is one super cool Kodi skin you can have this year. What we really like about this skin is the way the interface has been laid out.

Aeon Nox continues to remain an extremely popular Kodi skin even this year. Nox seems to be timeless because it offers a futuristic design and looks pretty cool. It will not get outdated any time soon and it is difficult to get bored of it.

3. Black Glass Nova

Black Glass Nova is also a pretty good looking skin for Kodi. It is not as futuristic looking as Nox, but it has its own elegance. It is the Glass theme that creates a lot of visual interest. You may wish Nova was more customizable like some others in the list. Apart from this little drawback, the overall theme presents quite a delight to the eyes. Everything with this skin is themed on black glass tiles. This skin offers two modes, one with big glass tiles and the other with smaller ones.


4. Aeon MQ6

This skin has been around for probably as long as since Kodi was introduced. If you have been using Kodi for a while and tried different skins other than the default one, there is a good chance you must have used MQ6 already. There is no denying that it is one of the best looking Kodi themes you can get, in spite of being old. The true strength of the skin lies in its ability to customize nearly everything. You can customize menus, media labels, widgets, and just about everything about the interface. Get the skin and explore it a bit. You will have your preferred visuals in no time.


5. KOver 2

If what you are looking for is something truly futuristic, KOver 2 is the right pick for you. The problem with most of the futuristic looking skins is that they stuff too much information on the screen and make it look cluttered. That’s definitely not the case with Kover 2 skin. In spite of being very futuristic, the designers have ensured that the interface looks neat and uncluttered. This skin is highly customizable and lets you modify almost all the elements. It also has auto-builds that customize the skins quickly with presets and save you a lot of time. It may be the best Kodi skin 2017.

6. Box

Box is also one of the oldest Kodi skins. It’s 2017 now and still it is considered as one of the best themes for this media player. Box was originally a mod for another skin called Niamu. But, the developers decided to create a skin of their own. Box offers plenty of customization choices to the users. You can modify main menus, sub menus, widgets, and overall look and feel of the interface. Also, there are several accents to choose from. The theme is compatible with touch and mouse. This makes it easy for those who use it on the mobile devices or computer.


7. SiO2

SiO2 skin bears striking resemblance with the interface of Apple TV. So, if you are also the Apple TV fan or want something similar to it on Kodi, you will love SiO2 theme. Not only does these theme look like Apple TV’s interface, it also offers many same functions. Developers wanted to make sure that navigation was easy for you with the skin. This is why they tried to make things you are looking for easily available with little effort. And they have succeeded to a great extent. But, this ease of use caused them to make the skin very linear and there are hardly any customization choices.


As the name suggests, Omni is all about its menus which are present quite prominently (omnipresent you can say). Omni is not exactly the most customizable skin but it earns its keep in the list because it offers some useful features and is very functional. The skin makes sure that all the menus and submenus are available to the users from all the windows. This makes it easy for you to jump from one section to another without having to go all the way back to the home screen. In other words, it makes navigation easier as compared to the others on this list. It is simple and easy to use.

9. Rapier

As the name of the skin suggest, it is light and sharp. Rapier is quite a comprehensive skin and suited for most types of Kodi users. It is fairly customizable and offers several ways to configure the settings and appearance. Rapier somehow manages to present plenty of information on the Kodi screen without stuffing it up or making it cluttered. The skin is simple and very easy to use. We are confident you will love it.


10. Pellucid

Pellucid is another great skin to use with Kodi. But, there is one problem – it is available only on Kodi Krypton version. If you use Jarvis, you will have to look for other options. Those who like moderately minimal skins will also like Pellucid. It has its menus placed on the left and the posters floating at the bottom. The posters can be cycled with fade in effect.
