Nowadays almost every 3rd person has installed Kodi on their device whether its Firestick, FireTV Cube, Computer, Phone or any other device. But the problem is it comes with an interface that most people don’t like for this I came up with the best Kodi Skins that can be used almost every device.
No matter if you are using a FireTV Stick, FireTV Cube, Mac, Windows, iOS, Android or any supported device. These skins will work each of it as these are available on the Official Kodi store that means it automatically supports bigger or smaller screen with no issue.
Since Kodi is one of the best Media Player available on the internet that can be used to watch our favourite TV Shows, Web-Series, Music, Movies using Addons. However, it has the default Skin named as Estuary which is also good but I just don’t like it because it is quite difficult to understand in case if you are a beginner.
Even though some of the famous Kodi use the list of Skins that I am providing here builds but the problem with a build is that they add tons of Addons and repository as well. In this way, it makes this app quite bulky and sometimes your device could be affected too, especially low-end devices have a minimum amount of RAM or Storage like old Android Phones or Firestick.
But after reading this guide you will almost any Skin without using any build and can be downloaded from the Kodi itself. In this way make sure to read this article till the end otherwise you may not be able to get your favourite Skin for you.
Best Kodi Skins List
This is the list of best Kodi skins that I have collected according to their user-interface and compatibility as well. Some of the Skins might not work on the computer or mouse interface while some don’t support touch device or a remote device like Firestick.
Every Skin has its own speciality so just check the review before installing, however, you can check the installation guide below this list. You will get complete instructions there with the screenshot attached to avoid making mistakes.
Enough talk let’s move to the list of Best Kodi Skins below:
The first and my favourite Skin is Aeon Nox, the reason why I just love it is because of its simple and easy to use interface. It comes with the minimal design and is quite best for all device whether it is touch supported or mouse or even remote this can be used everywhere. No matter if you are new at Kodi or old but after installing this Skin you will be able to use it even better.
There is another version of Aeon Nox available and labelled as the Aeon Nox: Silvo that can be used on Kodi 18 Leia only. However, this is quite similar to the Nox version but has only some differences like the title bar is a little bit changed in Silvo. Other than this Silvo doesn’t offer users to change the background image while in the Nox you will get tons of backgrounds to use.
By having an amazing and simple user-interface Aeon Nox comes with some best Kodi builds including No Limits Magic. Overall the Skin is quite amazing for every type of device users and the most probably it is compatible with 17 krypton version.
For instance, you want to use any other Skin that is even more user-friendly than talking about Eminence wouldn’t be a bad idea. However, this Skin could be considered as the clone version of a TV OS as it comes with a neat and clean User-interface. Eminence 2 is the latest version while Eminence is also available there and the best part of it you can install this Skin on Kodi 15 to Kodi 18 Leia.
If we talk about the Home Screen then it comes with simple yet effective block-type icons that can be accessed using the left and right navigation keys. You will see the list of categories available in which you can open any content from Videos, Music, Program, Games, Subtitles and even open Settings. When you install Addons the data will appear right in these categories.
After opening any of the categories from the Home Screen you will then see the large thumbnails appears. In this way you can open any of your favourite Movies or TV Show by clicking on it, however, it also allows a user to change thumbnail size and design that not all Skins offers.
Now when we talk about something completely different then the GRID names appear there. This Skin might be not famous just like others as it is released recently. However, the User-interface of this is simply amazing and is remote-friendly as well. This could be the best option for the Firestick, FireTV Cube or any Android OS TV users as it supports remote.
Now as the name suggests right after you install this app you will see the Home Screen completely changed and is replaced with a vertical menu (GRID Menus). This doesn’t apply only for Home Screen but after you open Movies, TV Shows or any other category from the list you will see the titles appears in a Grid form. However, you will also see the background change whenever switching between titles or categories like you will see different thumbnails in Movies or TV Shows section.
This can be used on all Kodi 18 Leia versions including latest 18.8 however in future it may work with 19 Matrix. Overall the performance is also amazing and even though you can change the UI by yourself. I wish you can make something even different as it comes by default.
Aura is another best Kodi Skins available out there that comes with the neat and easy to use user-interface. However, it is quite alike Grid as we mentioned earlier but the difference is instead of using vertical menus Aura uses horizontal style. When you install it for the first time you will notice a simple Home Screen having few items there.
But after opening any of the menus from Home Screen it will open further sub-menus or even categories lying under that menu. For those who don’t like the stock user-interface of the Aura, they have an option to customize this skin by their own. It comes with various customization settings in which you can change the menus in Home Screen or even Add or remove them.
Other than this you can also change the background by downloading one from the internet or using your local storage. This comes handy and is the best choice for both Android and even for the Firestick users because of simple UI you can open anything in a few clicks.
Artic: Zephyr 2
Arctic Zephyr is light in size Skin that could be useful for the low-end devices having a low amount of RAM or Storage just like Firestick. This Skin is quite similar to the Aura because the developer of these both skins is the same and there is no doubt why they seem the same. However, the Aura is way heavy as compared to the Arctic and could be used only with high-end devices.
Other than this as the name suggests the Arctic is based on a white theme and offers an easy catchy impression. In the Home Screen, you will notice the menu appears there like Home, Addons, Music Movies etc. When you move from one Menu to another you will see the background changes automatically and after you open any of the menus it shows furthermore categories.
Despite this, you can change the menu layout or add/remove the menu from the list. It is very easy to customize and is the best option if you want to try some modern look. However, this is the best Skin for Firestick users because of its size.
For those who are looking for a Skin that is highly customizable than talking about Rapier wouldn’t be bad. Since this Skin comes with various customization option if we compared it with any other. After you install it you will see the default theme colour is quite like Blue and black. So, if you don’t like it just change it and you can choose between flat, orange or red etc.
Other than this Rapier also offers a user to change the colour of a Home Screen menu to any that you want. However, you can even change the font colour and choose a different colour for each and every category or menu that appears at the home screen. Rapier doesn’t come with any background however you can download one from the internet or use any from your local storage.
In the Home Screen of Kodi, the menus are assigned at the bottom and can be changed by using the left or right navigation key. By default, you will see Movies, Videos, TV Shows, Music, Add-ons section in Home menu but there is an option in which you can add or hide the menu from Home. This is quite amazing and has tons of options to customize your Kodi on your own.
Titan (Bingie Mod)
If you are the die-hard lover of Netflix including its user-interface then Titan Bingie is the Skin that you should probably look at. It has a similar Netflix style user-interface having the large thumbnails and offers automatically playing of trailers. Other than this when you open hover to any Movie or TV Show from the list it will show its information and artwork as well.
This is the Mod version of official Titan as because the theme was supposedly supporting Kodi 17 Krypton only. However, they also launched the version of 18 Leia but it has various bugs and technical issue and that’s the reason why I am listing a mod instead of official Titan Skin. Perhaps this is quite handy and has numerous features just like the official one.
This is the best option for Firestick or Android TV user as you can navigate to any Menu, Settings or any elsewhere easily just by using your remote navigation keys. If you don’t like any of the menus appears there or can’t find the relevant one there. Then you have an option to edit these Menus accordingly or either just remove unwanted from the list or add a new one.
Another vertical layout skin similar to the Grid but it is way more efficient as the Grid is a minimal theme where Amber is highly customizable and is an advanced theme. It offers a menu in a vertical style and you can use up and down navigation key to go from one menu to another. While you open or navigate any of the menus from a list you will notice the background changes automatically.
You can also change these backgrounds of your own or remove any that you don’t like from default. While you open any menu from the list it shows sub-menu but while open Movies you will notice the Interface quite like Titan Bingie. It shows the same large thumbnails along with the information and artwork of movies but there is one thing missing that is automatically playing the trailer.
Perhaps if you are not a fan of the vertical style then you have an option to change it in horizontal. But with a horizontal layout, you won’t be able to see the Netflix like menu or thumbnails. Other than this it is quite useful for FireTV Stick and almost every platform out there.
Chroma is the older Skin that is available for a long time however this is not a favourite theme for various people. Although the reason is that most of them use touch or a smaller screen device and Chroma isn’t developed for them. It is a great theme for those who are using the large screen like FireTV Stick, Android TV or a big-screen LCD on computer.
Chroma uses the horizontal layout by default as you can use the left and right navigation key. Other than this it can be customized and changed into a vertical style but it won’t look as good as before. After changing the layout you will notice the thumbnails decreases their quality and the textures or the icons aren’t good enough.
In this way using the horizontal layout is all that you need, perhaps it has simple user-interface to open Home, Add-ons, Settings or any other thing quickly. You can even customize it on your own but there is a drawback as Chroma isn’t user-friendly. But you may love it after keep using it for a while and however, it works great in Kodi 17.6 Krypton.
If you just love the Minimal design layout for your Kodi then considering Bello top of that list. This amazing skin comes with an outstanding and simple user-interface. It is available for the Kodi Kryptop as Bello 7 while the 18 Leia version it is known as Bello 7. This comes with the horizontal layout and there is no way to change it into vertical.
Moreover, both versions come with different colours as the Krypton has the purple gradient while for the Kodi 18 Leia is is like a black & grey gradient. You may choose between several colour schemes but there is no option of Adding custom background in both versions. Due to its minimal design Bello ask its users to not use mouse cursor by showing prompts again and again.
However, you can still use it but it may not work as expected so this Skin is mostly focused on Smart TV or Touch device. It has the nice Home Screen where you can open Movies, TV Shows, Settings, Add-ons or any other menu. When opening any Main Menu you will see submenus as well, this is the best Kodi Skins for those who want a simple layout.
This is another uniquely designed skin available for the Kodi after Box however you may never see this type of theme before. As the name already suggests that this Skin features disc where the various sorts of menus revolve around them. You can simply use up and down navigation key to bring any menu closer and then open them instantly. However, in Home Screen, you will see Favourites, Videos, Music, Settings, Games, Programs etc.
But just in case you missed any of the menus from there you have an option to add them or even remove any unwanted menu as well. This could be the great option for every device users however it supports Touch Interface, Mouse Cursor and even the remote. So, using this along with Firestick or any Android TV remote you won’t face any issue at all. This features a light size that means no need to worry about performance issue as well.
When moving from one menu to another, you will notice the background keeps changes, so in case you don’t like the stock one just change it. Revolve offers various sorts of customization offers in which a user can change or remove the background image, enable or disable background video play, change menus, change fonts and can do almost everything as possible. The reason I listed it here is because this is a highly customizable theme that offers a unique design as well.
As the name suggests Box is a Skin based on square type layout that looks like boxes. However, for those who are using Kodi for a long time will surely know about the LightBox or nBox. So this theme is also inspired by these both and it will look familiar to you however it is more advanced and is the best option for Kodi 18 Leia. This theme offers a nice and interactive user-interface in which you will see Home Screen having 3 menus like Music, Movies, or TV.
In each of these Menus, it shows some sub-menus as well and when opening it you will see the content inside. Furthermore, Box comes with the various sorts of design for each type of menu as for Movies you will notice the Grid having posters and movie info. While for the Music it will show you as a vertical line order having to depend on Artist, Song Name, Playlists and so on. This offers a limited number of customisation as you can change or disable animation, hide or show background poster or enable or disable background play.
However, you won’t be able to change the background colour or add a new background picture. Perhaps the UI is quite simple and easy even for the remote controls or for the touch devices. The reason why it is listed as the best Kodi Skins is its different user-interface.
Mimic is another Skin that is available for the Kodi user however this is the best choice for those who don’t like annoying colours as it offers a flat design. While you install Mimic on your app you will notice the interface is quite attractive and very simple. The Home Screen layout is based on a horizontal so you can use left and right navigation key to go from one menu to another.
When installing it for the first time you will see the theme of having a blue colour and some hues. However, if you don’t like its colour then you can choose from various options available in the customization section. Even though Mimic provides you with other options like you can add or remove menus, change the font style, change poster layout and can do much other stuff.
The most loved poster design is called as Wall and it shows movies poster in a grid style without any border. This could be best for those who love movies as this amazing layout make it easy to find any movie on the list. It is the best choice for those who love theme simple so just download & Install mimic on your Kodi and start to change the layout completely.
This is the list of my own picked top best Kodi Skins for 17 Krypton or for the 18 Leia as well. All of these are checked by me and found them amazing. Each of the Skin has it’s own pros and cons and also offers a unique design. You can read about every theme from the list and choose according to as it has everything that you should require.
In this list, you will find some minimalist themes as not everyone loves to waste their time customizing it. However, it also has some highly customizable themes so for those who love to make their own design can benefit from it. All of these Skins are 100% working with the Firestick or any other device that supports remote so feel free to try one of these.
However, if I forgot about mentioning anything here please let me know in the comment section. I would really appreciate your suggestions and will add it here as well if I found it helpful. Other than this don’t forget to share this amazing guide to others because share is care.
