A Bootstrap header can greatly increase the credibility of your website. It will enhance your site’s brand value and UX.
A header is an essential element of a website. It can be your brand name along with a description.
You can easily create a header without using Bootstrap. But using Bootstrap for designing your header will not just save you a ton of time, you will also be able to easily create high-quality designs. If you attempt to design a header with just CSS, you have to spend a great amount of time to achieve a good design and at the same time, you need to have great knowledge of CSS. So if you don’t know much of CSS, you have to spend a lot of time learning CSS. On the contrary, learning Bootstrap will not require much time if you know the basics of CSS. And with just basic knowledge of Bootstrap, you can do so much.
But the good news is that you don’t have to learn Bootstrap. You will find many, great quality, free Bootstrap header templates on the internet, which can easily be integrated into your website.
For this post, I’m going to give you a list of the best free Bootstrap header examples.
