To give you maximum flexibility, the Carbon theme offers a number of widget areas around the page. 9 custom widgets included in the theme work in tandem to help you create a range of layouts and effects.

Click here to see where the various widget areas and menus available in the Carbon theme are located relative to the rest of the page elements.
To get the most from Carbon, we recommend you install a plugin to allow control over widget visibility, so you can show different widgets on different page types. Two that we recommend have have tested with are Jetpack and Content Aware Sidebars, there are also others out there that should work just fine.
