Centering is one of the most difficult and common things to do for web developers.

Here are few ways to do it (from the most complicated to the simplest):

The Position Absolute method

    position: relative

    position: absolute;
    top: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    transform: translate(-50%, -50%)

One of the old-school methods that we used before the existence of Flexbox.

The Table Cell method

  display: table-cell;
  vertical-align: middle


In this method, table-cell together with vertical-align property are used to make the child vertically centered, while margin auto is applied to horizontally center the child.

The Flexbox method

  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;

This is the most common way to center an item. Here's a guide to Flexbox.

The Grid method

  display: grid;

The simplest method that I found which only requires two lines of code in the parent container.


Did I leave out your favourite centering method? 🤔

The look and layout are nice.

Do you have the complete CSS script for your screenshot of "Parent" and "Child"? Maybe I mean the color scheme. Thanks.

Unfortunately, I lost the file... Here's the colour scheme:
Blue - #2674B0
Red - #FF0000
