How far can you go with custom styling?

I’m wondering how far you can customize the look and feel of Discourse while still keeping the functionality.

Can anyone point me to some examples of Discourse installs that look quite different from the out of the box installation?

As far as you want. Generally, unless you start using display : none or similar styles that remove/hide functional elements, you can pretty much do whatever you want with CSS to customize the style.

Edit: Examples (I just opened random sites from the directory to find these…I have no affiliation with any of them):

Major style changes: http://www.smartwatch.me/, Topaz Discussion Forum
Color and font changes: https://forum.fractalfuture.net/
Dark Theme, post view changes: https://discuss.moe/

Perfect, thanks a lot.
