First, you need to find a board that supports socket LGA1151:

http://ark.intel.com/products/88195/Intel-Core-i7-6700K-Processor-8M-Cache-up-to-4_20-GHz Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.20 GHz) Specifications

Second, you must also make certain that the motherboard BIOS supports the i7-6700K.

As far as form-factor, mini-ATX, micro-ATX, or full ATX, that decision, as when as motherboard memory, cooling, power supply, are up to you, and you must consider carefully.

There are a number of good board manufacturers out there. Just explore their offerings.
