Kodi Eminence Skin – Review, Preview & How To Install



Eminence Skin for Kodi

Eminence Skin has always been my favourite Kodi Skin. It has a great design and style, and everything is laid out exactly where you’d want it to be.

Review & Preview

The Kodi Eminence Skin is very minimalist looking, using icons and text as the main navigation structure across the bottom of the screen. The navigation menu disappears when you aren’t hovering over it, resulting in a random movie poster taking the screen along with a description and IMDb rating which is a really cool feature.

Colours contrast really well too, and everything is laid out in a user friendly way, making this skin one of my personal favourites. Eminence utilises your movie and TV artwork nicely, always displaying it in the background when hovering over a media file.

It is a very lightweight skin so it’s a good choice for smaller devices due to it being fast to run, and it also has mouse support if you are using your PC as the primary streaming device. I think this skin is currently one of the best choices for a good Kodi setup!

It’s hard to find any cons with this skin. Everything is just laid out so neatly and easy to find. With it being professional looking, it’s definitely one needed on the big screen.

A lot of customization and design options are available with the Eminence Kodi Skin. For example, you can change Eminence from it’s default dark theme to a light one. However dark is definitely the better choice.
