Here are eleven bona fide Bootstrap marketplaces – each with their own pros and cons!
Of course, we believe that ThemeFisher is the number one place to come for free Bootstrap themes. Whether you need a quality Bootstrap front-end theme to impress end users or a highly functional Bootstrap admin template for behind the scenes UX, you will find what you need here.
We aim to provide a free version for all themes you see, saving you hours of fruitless searching. You can always choose the Pro version in the future and pay a little extra to remove the ThemeFisher credit at the bottom. We also offer multi-theme bundles at attractive low rates.
A worthwhile destination for free Bootstrap admin templates is WrapPixel, a company specialising in designing themes for backend development. There is a small selection of quality free Bootstrap templates as well as Angular templates but you might also want to look at the much larger inventory of low-cost (under $25) admin templates and full UI kits. One huge bonus is that purchase includes 24/7 support and ‘forever free’ updates.
WrapBootstrap are yet another ‘Bootstrap-only’ marketplace. Whether your budget is $4 or $99 you will probably find something suitable among the hundreds of themes available. One handy feature is the ability to filter by Bootstrap version.
Quality Bootstrap templates – outside of ThemeFisher – are hard to come across. If you do find one, tread carefully as you may be at risk of downloading spyware or worse!
ThemeHunt is a respected marketplace for Bootstrap themes with a wide selection of one-page Bootstrap themes and templates. ThemeHunt organise themes by category (e.g. Corporate & Business, Creative & Ecommerce, etc.) as well as popularity (Popular templates, Top rated, New releases etc.). Anyone can earn money by referring ThemeHunt items to their own website(s).
Gridgum have focused on the huge market of designers, developers and business owners in need of responsive themes for a modern website. Since Bootstrap 3, the framework has operated on a mobile-first basis so any Bootstrap 3 or Bootstrap 4 theme will, be definition, be fully responsive and mobile friendly.
However, if you want an iron-clad guarantee that your theme will be ideal for mobile users, exploring Gridgum might be for you. There is even a limited range of free Bootstrap themes available.
BootstrapMade are another Bootstrap-only marketplace, offering their services to authors looking to sell their themes and designers and developers on the hunt for free Bootstrap themes. The selection of themes on offer may be modest but they are regularly updated and there is also a support center (something which can be missing from other free theme providers). BootstrapMade also offer a low-cost licensing scheme for developers who require more ownership over their Bootstrap theme.
BootstrapBay is another established Bootstrap vendor offering Premium themes and admin templates. These can be filtered by type by simply selecting from the Categories dropdown. As the name of the marketplace suggests, BootstrapBay are a bunch of Bootstrap enthusiasts and they actively go through the code on their themes so buyers can be sure they get a quality theme.
If you are specifically looking to build a Bootstrap website and don’t want to be distracted by other frameworks, this is a good place to look.
The Mojo Marketplace is another popular outlet for premium Bootstrap themes although you may struggle to find much under the $15 mark. Theme selection can be easily narrowed down by highlighting the categories you are interested in on the handy left-hand sidebar which also includes a price limiter and even a slider to specify sales volume as a mark of popularity.
There are plenty of decent premium Bootstrap themes for WordPress, Joomla, Magento and more at Mojo Marketplace but this is not the best marketplace for free themes.
It is always good to find a niche and Creative Market have done this by focusing their efforts on themes authored by independent creatives from around the world. There are over a thousand Bootstrap themes available for perusal at creativemarket.com and you can narrow your options by selecting the ‘handpicked’ filter. Some Bootstrap themes are available for under $5 and if you’re lucky, you may find one or two free Bootstrap themes suitable for your business or client. Authors can also sell their themes to Creative Market and there is even a referral scheme in place.
When it comes to finding quality creative assets, it can be difficult for buyers to see the wood for the trees. However, Australian firm Envato have simplified things by creating a separate site just for their themes and templates: ThemeForest.Net). ThemeForest themes tend to sell at around the $15 to $40 mark although there are less expensive themes for developers on more of a budget (some as low as $2).
Envato offers a huge range of more than 39,000 themes and templates including some built with Bootstrap (although you may need to spend some time hunting for them among the many different options).
Since 2002, Template Monster have been helping web designers and developers (not to mention hands-on business owners) with their website projects. They position themselves as the field experts and Templatemonster.com houses over 25,000 premium templates.
Templates are split into category area which can be selected via the user-friendly menu icons. Themes are also divided into types (eBay, Photoshop, WordPress, Joomla, Magenta, WooCommerce, etc.) and there is, of course, a page for Bootstrap themes which tend to retail around the $75 mark.
If you have the budget to spend this on just one theme, then TemplateMonster could be for you!
