I personally don’t like default Ubuntu theme and the first thing i did after installing Ubuntu was to change Ubuntu theme and icon. If you also don’t like default Ubuntu theme or you have been bored with it, Just change it with the best Ubuntu theme and Icon pack. The name of the theme I am talking about is Adapta Gtk theme and the name of Icon pack is Numix Circle.
Here are some desktop screenshot of my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with Adapta Gtk theme and Numix Circle icon pack.
