With Spacing

HTML Table – Cell Padding

Cell padding is the space between the cell edges and the cell content.

By default the padding is set to 0.

To add padding on table cells, use the CSS padding property:


th, td {
  padding: 15px;

To add padding only above the content, use the padding-top property.

And the others sides with the padding-bottompadding-left, and padding-right properties:


th, td {
  padding-top: 10px;
  padding-bottom: 20px;
  padding-left: 30px;
  padding-right: 40px;

HTML Table – Cell Spacing

Cell spacing is the space between each cell.

By default the space is set to 2 pixels.

To change the space between table cells, use the CSS border-space property on the table element:


table {
  border-spacing: 30px;
