CSS scroll-margin-bottom Property

  • Last Updated : 06 Sep, 2020

The scroll-margin-bottom property is used to set all the scroll margins to the bottom of an element at once. The value specified for the scroll-margin-bottom determines how much of the page that is primarily outside the support should remain visible.

Hence, the scroll-margin-bottom values represent outsets that define the scroll snap area that is used for snapping this box to the snap port. 


scroll-margin-bottom: length

/* Or */

scroll-margin-bottom: Global_Values

Property values: This property accepts two-properties mentioned above and described below:

  • length: This property refers to the values defined with length units: px, rem, em, vh, etc.
  • Global_Values: This property refers to the global values like initial, inherit, unset, etc.

 Note: scroll-margin-bottom doesn’t accept percentage value as the length. 

Example: In this example, you can see the effect of scroll-margin-bottom by scrolling to a point partway between two of the “interfaces” of the example’s content.


<!DOCTYPE html>
        .scroller {
              width: 300px;
              overflow-x: hidden;
              overflow-y: auto;
              scroll-snap-type:y mandatory;
        .scroller > div {
              width: 300px;
              height: 300px;
              font-size: 50px; 
              color: white;
              display: flex; 
              align-items: center; 
              justify-content: center; 
              scroll-snap-align: end none;
        .scroller div:nth-child(odd){
              background-color: green;
              scroll-margin-bottom: 1rem;
        .scroller div:nth-child(even){
              background-color: rgb(160, 231, 45);
              scroll-margin-bottom: 3rem;
    <div class="scroller">
