There are 7 different homepage styles available in the theme, you can see them all on the theme demo.
To set up a homepage go to WP admin → Pages → Add New. Add a page title ( can be anything ), set the Template to the homepage style you want and in the Homepage Options set the amount of posts and choose the style you want and publish the page.
