Ready-To-Use Bootstrap Form Templates For Your Projects

Bootstrap is the most popular and probably the most complete front-end web framework, which allows developers to fasten the creation of a website or web app. In this article, I have compiled 5 ready-to-use web forms for your Bootstrap projects. It’s time to save some time!

General Rules for your Bootstrap Form

As the most popular CSS Framework available, Bootstrap makes HTML forms creation way easier and much faster.

The first thing to note is that Bootstrap provides three different layouts by default. Those layouts are:

  • Vertical Form
  • Inline Form
  • Horizontal Form

Those three layouts can be seen and tested on Bootstrap’s website.

Before showcasing the Bootstrap forms examples, let’s keep in mind a few simple rules:

  • <input>, <textarea>, and <select> elements should all have the .form-control CSS class added to them. This class is used for styling the form elements. Included are styles for general appearance, focus state, sizing, etc.
  • For optimal spacing, make sure to wrap form controls and labels with <div class="form-group">

That’s it with the theory. We can now switch to practice and check out the bootstrap forms.

Vertical Login Form

Bootstrap Vertical Form
A very basic form template that can be easily enhanced and modified to suit almost any need. Use it as a starting point for almost any kind of simple forms, such as login forms, contact forms, etc.

 <form role="form">
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="email">Email address:</label>
    <input type="email" class="form-control" id="email">
  </div>
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="pwd">Password:</label>
    <input type="password" class="form-control" id="pwd">
  </div>
  <div class="checkbox">
    <label><input type="checkbox"> Remember me</label>
  </div>
  <button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Submit</button>
</form>

Inline Form

Bootstrap Inline Form
Inline forms are widespread, especially when it comes to login forms. Look at the code below. Notice any change from the previous form? In fact the single difference between this code and the previous one is the .form-inline class added to the form HTML element.

 <form class="form-inline" role="form">
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="email">Email address:</label>
    <input type="email" class="form-control" id="email">
  </div>
  <div class="form-group">
    <label for="pwd">Password:</label>
    <input type="password" class="form-control" id="pwd">
  </div>
  <div class="checkbox">
    <label><input type="checkbox"> Remember me</label>
  </div>
  <button type="submit" class="btn btn-default">Submit</button>
</form>

Contact Form

Bootstrap Contact Form
Contact forms are probably the most popular forms ever, as nearly every website features at least one. Here’s a quality template for all your contact form needs, plus a little CSS to make it look better. Also note that this example makes an interesting usage of Bootstrap’s glyphicons.

<div class="container">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="col-md-12">
            <div class="well well-sm">
                <form class="form-horizontal" method="post">
                    <fieldset>
                        <legend class="text-center header">Contact us</legend>

                        <div class="form-group">
                            <span class="col-md-1 col-md-offset-2 text-center"><i class="fa fa-user bigicon"></i></span>
