Thanks for your interest in Sitefinity and contacting us.
Site PanelBar is using our RadPanelBar for ASP.NET AJAX and you can change the skin property to adjust the appearance. Simply drop the Site PanelBar onto the page and click Edit in the control header to open its properties. Expand section Appearance and enter in the skin name for in the Skin field.
The attached image will give you more details. To see a preview of the skins, please go to the appearance page
of the RadPanelBar. Your page's theme also controls the look of RadPanelBar, so you can make adjustments to your CSS file to change the tool's appearance.
I hope I have clearly explained how to change the Site PanelBar's appearance. Feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.
