Step 3: Adjust Spacing

To make your site look clean and organized, you can fine-tune the spacing of your content. Use the “Row Gap” setting to manage the space between rows, preventing your content from being too cramped or too spread out. Adjust the “Margin Top” and “Margin Bottom” settings to add space above and below your elements for a balanced look. The “Padding” option lets you add space inside the container’s border, giving your content some room to breathe.
