The grid-area property is used to set a grid item size and location in a grid layout. The grid-area property is also used to set a name to a grid item.

grid-area: grid-row-start|grid-column-start|grid-row-end|
grid-column-end|itemname;

Property Values:

  • grid-row-start: It sets the row on which the item is displayed first.
  • grid-column-start: It sets the column on which the item is displayed first.
  • grid-row-end: It specifies the row-line to stop displaying the item, or span how many rows.
  • grid-column-end: It sets the number of columns to span.
  • itemname: It sets a name for the grid item.
