    Stylistically. It could enhance how your website looks.
    WordPress uses plug-ins too, for comments, forums.. and a lot more.

    TechCrunch, 9to5mac, Spotify all use WordPress.
    Your website is a little clunky (IMHO), so I think it could help you a lot.

    it will not enhance how the website looks, because op can replicate the layout of his/her current website to look exactly how it currently looks using wordpress... all wordpress does is give you the flexibility of working with large amounts of content and provides you the ability to use plugins in order to simplify some tasks.

    Okay, - don't use WordPress.


    Good luck with that beautiful site of yours.

    So what should be added/taken away to make the site better?

    That red text on the green Background gives me a headache. Maybe try white with a stroke or drop shadow. Looks cool though other than that.

    Design is nice just doesn't feel quite polished. Your site takes up 100% width of the browser, I'd put a max-width. Some of the colors don't work well. Some of your icons aren't lining up properly. It's a lot of small details that just makes it look very amateurish.
