There are two ways you can install WordPress theme for your website. One, search for any WordPress theme from WordPress theme repo and install it from the dashboard. Two, download the zip file of the theme and install it. Most of the free WordPress theme and the Premium WordPress theme are available for download as zip files. I personally recommend you to opt for Premium WordPress themes as they provide better utilities and function than the free themes.
