15+ Best Free Bootstrap WordPress Themes 2022

Bootstrap, a front-end framework, was released back in 2011. Since then, the framework has transcended the idea of building websites using a pre-built component structure. And while Bootstrap still dominates the market, frameworks like Tailwind CSS are giving it a run for its money.

One of the key reasons why people love working with Bootstrap themes is because they’re visually pleasing and quite simple to configure. In fact, the aspect of familiarity also comes into play. If your website is using a Bootstrap-based design; there’s a good chance people will naturally know how to navigate your site because the visual appearance of the website elements is already familiar.

These days, modern WordPress themes in categories like beauty, eCommerce, and travel are all built using a custom style guide. So, not necessarily with Bootstrap. But, if we look at what is available in terms of the larger Bootstrap theme catalog – there’s definitely a solid selection of themes to choose from.

As always, all of our theme collections include themes that have been tested for optimal performance (Core Web Vitals) but also for responsive design. Both of these elements - responsiveness and performance - are critical if you plan to write content that attracts visitors through organic search.
