Column sizes

Define the size of each column individually


If you want to change the size of a single column, you can use one of the following classes:

  • is-three-quarters
  • is-two-thirds
  • is-half
  • is-one-third
  • is-one-quarter

The other columns will fill up the remaining space automatically.

New! 0.6.1

You can now use the following multiples of 20% as well:

  • is-four-fifths
  • is-three-fifths
  • is-two-fifths
  • is-one-fifth

12 columns system #

As the grid can be divided into 12 columns, there are size classes for each division:

  • is-2
  • is-3
  • is-4
  • is-5
  • is-6
  • is-7
  • is-8
  • is-9
  • is-10
  • is-11

Naming convention

Each modifier class is named after how many columns you want out of 12. So if you want 7 columns out of 12, use is-7.

Offset #

While you can use empty columns (like <div class="column"></div>) to create horizontal space around .column elements, you can also use offset modifiers like .is-offset-x:

is-half
is-offset-one-quarter

is-three-fifths
is-offset-one-fifth

is-4
is-offset-8

is-11
is-offset-1

<div class="columns is-mobile">
  <div class="column is-half is-offset-one-quarter"></div>
</div>

<div class="columns is-mobile">
  <div class="column is-three-fifths is-offset-one-fifth"></div>
</div>

<div class="columns is-mobile">
  <div class="column is-4 is-offset-8"></div>
</div>

<div class="columns is-mobile">
  <div class="column is-11 is-offset-1"></div>
</div>

Narrow column #

If you want a column to only take the space it needs, use the is-narrow modifier. The other column(s) will fill up the remaining space.

Narrow column

This column is only 200px wide.

Flexible column

This column will take up the remaining space available.

<div class="columns">
  <div class="column is-narrow">
    <div class="box" style="width: 200px;">
      <p class="title is-5">Narrow column</p>
      <p class="subtitle">This column is only 200px wide.</p>
    </div>
  </div>
  <div class="column">
    <div class="box">
      <p class="title is-5">Flexible column</p>
      <p class="subtitle">This column will take up the remaining space available.</p>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

As for the size modifiers, you can have narrow columns for different breakpoints:

  • is-narrow-mobile
  • is-narrow-tablet
  • is-narrow-desktop
