Default Rooted Themes?

Just Rooted my GS4 Verizon. I noticed that some of advantages for rooting your phone are themes. I can already do themes without root. What do themes do with root access? What are some good ones if there are any that take advantage of a Rooted phone.

Big difference between launcher themes (icons) and a system theme which can change the framework, systemui, apps, etc. As far as what themes to use...well, you are rather limited while running Touchwiz. You can try the Xposed Framework + HK Theme Manager + CM10/11 themes though with how TW is, this usually is an incomplete process. Check out the Play Store for CM11 themes to get a better idea of the differences between a complete theme and a launcher/icon theme.
