Capability for alternate widget style/themes in WindowsForms?

I am trying to see if there are any options for additional styles for widgets when creating windows form applications in Visual Studio. All of the searches return results on changing the code style or visual style inside VS itself (i.e. appearance of the editor).

What I am referring to is, the style of the buttons, sliders, scroll bars, etc. I used to use Tk/Gtk quite a bit back in the day, and it was nice to be able to change the styles of the widgets within IDE for the application I was building instead of relying on the default system styles.

Thanks in advance.

    For an example of a pre-done theme see MetroSet UI, and MaterialSkins then there are paid-for libraries like Telerik UI for windows forms (and there are others too).
