The min-height property in CSS is used to set the minimum height of an element. The min-height property is used when the content of the element is smaller than the min-height and if the content is larger than the min-height then it has no effect. This property ensures that the value of the height property is not less than the specified min-height value of the element in consideration. 

Syntax:

min-height: length|initial|inherit;

  • length: This property is used to set the min-height. The default value of length is 0. The height can be set in the form of px, %, cm etc. 
  • initial: It is used to set the value of min-height property to its default value.
