15 Free Bootstrap Admin & Dashboard Themes

In the past the admin section of a web application tended to be built solely for functionality, with not much, if any at all, consideration for the design side. Thankfully things are changing. Functionality and design, especially over the last couple of years, have been merging. And with the massive rise in popularity of the Bootstrap framework, creating a beautiful and functional admin panel has never been easier to create.

Why would you choose to use Bootstrap at all? Well, with Bootstrap, you know exactly what you are getting. It is a relatively easy to customize mobile-first framework that includes ready-made design patterns and comes packaged with a huge library of components and widgets. And perhaps more importantly, your Bootstrap build will be consistent on all screen resolutions and platforms. So it does make sense to build the dashboard or the admin panel of your web application with something that you know works well.

All of the free Bootstrap admin themes below have been pre-built to be used as a complete solution for rapidly designing the front-end of the dashboard of your web app. As well as all of Bootstrap’s handy collection of widgets, they have all included many extra addons, plugins and features (plugins for charts & graphs, calendars, file managers, and much more). Everything you will ever need for rapidly building your dashboard.

And on top of all of those features these themes are all gorgeous as well. Here they are:
