Luckily, you don’t have to build your form completely from scratch — many developers have already built free, publicly available form templates for many different types of forms. To help you create an effective web form with Bootstrap, we’ve compiled over 30 of our favorites. Let’s get started.
Best Free Bootstrap Form Templates
In this list, we’ll share templates for the following form types:
This professional registration form is one of our favorites made with Bootstrap, and resembles the look of many a popular web app. The accompanying icons for each form field make it a bit more user-friendly, plus the social login option is clearly visible.
Colorlib also offers several multi-step forms which you can use for registration, account creation, or checkout. This one takes you through the process of setting up an account and manages to look sleek while staying mobile-friendly.
This template incorporates a more prominent photo next to the form, a simple sign-up process, and a color scheme you may be familiar with if you’ve ever rented a stranger’s vacation home for the weekend.
It doesn’t get much simpler than this inline form template from W3, which you could use for a registration form or be adapted for a newsletter CTA. Either way, the single-line layout allows it to fit in a header or footer.
16. Login/Registration Form Transition (Nikolay Talanov on CodePen)
This login form template is a bit more elaborate but still contains all the essentials: an email and password field, a sign-in button, a “forgot password?” prompt, and the option to sign up or log in with Facebook.
Colorlib has a set of simple, stylish login form templates built with Bootstrap that are free and fully customizable. This one allows you to place any image to the left and keeps everything contained in one window.
The fewer items you put in your contact form, the more likely users are to complete it. This super basic form template has only four options and a compact layout that can easily fit in the sidebar of your page.
Unsurprisingly, Colorlib has you covered with Bootstrap contact forms, too. There are four fields here, with a prominent image, a clear send button, and rounded sides on the input fields to make the form appear friendlier.
Checkout forms can be tricky, since there are several necessary fields that accept different formats. Bootstrap provides a basic form template to get started — it includes the fields that users are used to when submitting a shipping address.
This button-triggered modal is ideal for placing a user’s focus entirely on your form, free from distractions. Just make sure the purpose of your form is worth pulling attention away from the rest of your site’s content for a moment.
30. Bootstrap 4 Request Quotation form Wizard (Omkar Bailkeri on BBBootstrap)
Allow visitors to request quotes with this user-friendly, mobile-friendly quote request form. A progress bar at the top keeps them engaged through each step of the process, ensuring more users actually reach the end.
32. Reset password Form (Ihor Sukhorada on CodePen)
Finally, this template lets users reset their passwords. The last thing users want to do after losing their password is fill out unnecessary fields, which is why this form has exactly one input and one button.
When building any kind of site, you need to consider mobile users alongside your desktop users, and this means considering responsive design from the start.
The Bootstrap framework ensures your pages are always mobile-friendly with little extra work required from you, the developer. And, with the right form, you can worry less about design and more about sign-ups, submissions, and conversions.
