Table Borders

To specify table borders in CSS, use the border property.

The example below specifies a black border for <table>, <th>, and <td> elements:

Example

table, th, td {
  border: 1px solid black;
}

Full-Width Table

The table above might seem small in some cases. If you need a table that should span the entire screen (full-width), add width: 100% to the <table> element:

Example

table {
  width: 100%;
}

Double Borders

Notice that the table in the examples above have double borders. This is because both the table and the <th> and <td> elements have separate borders.

To remove double borders, take a look at the example below.


Collapse Table Borders

The border-collapse property sets whether the table borders should be collapsed into a single border:

Example

table {
  border-collapse: collapse;
}

If you only want a border around the table, only specify the border property for <table>:

Example

table {
  border: 1px solid black;
}
