In this article, we would like to show you how in CSS center an element horizontally using flexbox when elements are ordered in the row direction (by default flex uses flex-direction: row; so we don't need to add it).

Quick solution:

.container {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
}

Practical example

In this example, we're using a flexbox with the justify-content property to horizontally center the item inside the flex container with flex-direction: row;.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
  <head>
    <style>

      .container {
        border-radius: 10px;
        background: #3085d6;
        width: 200px;
        height: 200px;
        box-shadow: 5px 5px 15px gray;

        display: flex;           /*  <----- required   */
        justify-content: center; /*  <----- required   */
      }

      .item {
        height: 50px;
        width: 50px;
        margin: 2px;
        background-color: rgb(255, 195, 83);
        border: 1px solid black;
        border-radius: 5px;
        text-align: center;
        line-height: 50px;
      }

    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="item"></div>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>
