You have made decisions about how many navigation options you need (menus) and where you want your visitors to find them. You have decided if you want a left side bar, right side bar, no side bar or and option for all three. You have decided that you will have images and of what sizes placed where. You have decided if or have not to have video content. You have decided that your WordPress theme will or will not be appropriate for phones as well as tablets and desktops.
