Firsts steps to add Bootstrap to Omeka S
On the file layout.phtml, you need to add the external dependencies through insert this lines of code:

Main desing with boostrap
Bootstrap, it’s simple, works by adding classes to html tags so we must lay out the html of our project.

The first step is to configure the body to center and dimension all the views:

<body class="mt-auto col-10 m-auto">

  <footer class="page-footer font-small blue pt-4 m-5">

So, you can rewrite Omeka S code, for add the css class on the files view that you need. It’s easy, only add the file to File’s Directory, save the app’s estructure:

On other hand, you could inject code html, css from the administration panel, so you can personalize each section.

For The example, you could add one Bootstraps’s carrousel of Photographs by the following way (Remember previously you must configure the bootstrap dependencies):

Main page appearance
Our proposal, show a Omeka S with this aspect: nvabar, a center slider with several images and card blocks for the news. 

Contact form
One of the most common options is to have a contact form, with boostrap is easy to implement in Omeka:

ItemSets page
For the ItemSets view, we add a table for improve the items-set display. The code to insert in the view is:

<?php $this->trigger('view.browse.before'); ?> <table class="table">
            <th scope="col">Thumbnail</th>
            <th scope="col">Title</th>
            <th scope="col">Description</th>

        <tr class="resource-list m-5">
            $headingTerm = $this->siteSetting('browse_heading_property_term');
            $bodyTerm = $this->siteSetting('browse_body_property_term');
            foreach ($itemSets as $itemSet) :
                $heading = $headingTerm ? $itemSet->value($headingTerm, ['default' => $translate('[Untitled]')]) : $itemSet->displayTitle();
                $body = $bodyTerm ? $itemSet->value($bodyTerm) : $itemSet->displayDescription();
                if ($media = $itemSet->primaryMedia())
                $thumbnail = $media->thumbnailUrl('medium');
            $thumbnail = $itemSet->thumbnail();
        <tr class="item-set resource">
            <td class="col-3">
            <img class="resource-list img-fluid" width="400px" src="<?= ($thumbnail->assetUrl()) ?>">
            <td class="col-3"><?php echo $itemSet->link($heading); ?></td>
            <?php if ($body) : ?>
                <td class="description"><?php echo $body; ?></td>
            <?php endif; ?>
            <td class="col-3"><?php echo $itemSet->link($heading); ?></td>
            <?php if ($body) : ?>
                <td class="description"><?php echo $body; ?></td>
            <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
