Home Assistant: How to add multiple themes
  1. Prepare for theme files, Put them in /themes folder as shown below I plan to use 2 themes: noctics and synthawave

2. Open configuration.yaml to edit frontend setting. We will use !include_dir_merge_named instead of !include then put the theme folder name themes then save the configuration.yaml

frontend:
themes: !include_dir_merge_named themes

3. Go to Home Assistant web interface > Configuration > Server Controls

  • Press “Check configuration file” if it valid or not.
  • Then go to “Server management” section and restart server.
  • Wait for server restart for a while.

4. Look for your username at below left of screen then click to see your profile. You will have options to select theme there.
