The first edition of template kit was introduced by Elementor back in August 2019. The aim was nothing but to shorten your workflow in creating a website with Elementor. As time goes, the collections of Elementor template library are getting more massive as Elementor releases a new template kit on a weekly basis. Recently, Elementor introduced a new feature to make your site creation process even faster. The feature is Kit Library.
Kit Library is a feature where you can discover, preview, and install a template kit. Think of it as an Elementor template library but specialized for template kits. On Kit Library, you can find a template kit that fits your website project and install it with only three clicks. You read it right. You can install a template kit with only three clicks and Elementor will do the rest. In a matter of minutes (or seconds), you will have a full-featured website.
How to Install a Template Kit in Elementor
Before the Kit Library feature was released, you could install a template kit by importing each template of the kit via Elementor template library. You need to import each template one by one. If the kit consists of 6 templates (e.g., homepage, about page, contact page, 404 page, header, footer), you need to import the templates six times. With Kit Library, you can import all of the templates on a kit with a few clicks.
The Kit Library feature itself started available on Elementor 3.3. So, make sure you have updated your Elementor to version 3.3 to use the feature. Once you are ready, go to Templates -> Kit Library on your WordPress dashboard to access the Kit Library feature.
Search for a template kit you like. You can use the left panel to filter the template kits by category and tag. On the upper-right side, you can also filter the template kits by popularity and release date. There is also a search bar you can use to find a template kit. You can click a template kit to preview it.
When previewing a template kit, you will see an Apply Kit button on the top-right corner. You can click the button to install the template kit. To see the templates lineup of the kit, you can click the Overview button.
On the next step, a dialog screen will appear asking you to select the components (templates, content, and site settings) you want to include. Select the components you want to include and click the Next button on the bottom-right corner.
On the next dialog screen, you will be asked which items (header, footer, and so on) you want to keep and apply. Select your choices and click the Next button on the bottom-right corner.
Wait a moment until Elementor is done importing the templates and set the things up.

Template kits are not offered by Elementor alone. You can also get a template kit from sites like ThemeForest and TemplateMonster.
