Bootstrap provides a class to overlay the content and different style properties to make it appear more attractive. To fill the viewport or whole screen with .nav-bar change the height.

min-height: 100vh;


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta name="viewport" 
          content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
        body {
            font-family: 'Lato', sans-serif;

            width: 0;
            position: fixed;
            background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);
            background-color: rgba(0, 96, 128, 0.9);
            overflow-x: hidden;
            transition: 0.5s;
        .overlay-content {
            position: relative;
            top: 25%;
            width: 100%;
            text-align: center;
            margin-top: 30px;
        .overlay a {
            padding: 8px;
            text-decoration: none;
