CSS margin Property

CSS margins are used to make room around an element. We can change the margin sizes for individual sides (top, right, bottom, left).

The following values can be assigned to margin properties:

  • Length in cm, px, pt, and so on.
  • The element's width as a percentage.
  • The browser calculates the margin: auto.
