Flex Direction

Utilities for controlling the direction of flex items.

React propsCSS Properties
flexDirection={direction}flex-direction: {direction};


Use flexDirection="row" to position flex items horizontally in the same direction as text:

<x.div display="flex" flexDirection="row"> <div>1</div> <div>2</div> <div>3</div> </x.div>

Row reversed

Use flexDirection="row-reverse" to position flex items horizontally in the opposite direction:

<x.div display="flex" flexDirection="row-reverse"> <div>1</div> <div>2</div> <div>3</div> </x.div>


Use flexDirection="column" to position flex items vertically:

<x.div display="flex" flexDirection="column"> <div>1</div> <div>2</div> <div>3</div> </x.div>

Column reversed

Use flexDirection="column-reverse" to position flex items vertically in the opposite direction:

<x.div display="flex" flexDirection="column-reverse"> <div>1</div> <div>2</div> <div>3</div> </x.div>


To apply a flex direction utility only at a specific breakpoint, use responsive object notation. For example, adding the property flexDirection={{ xs: 'column', md: 'row' }} to an element would apply the flexDirection="column" by default and the flexDirection="row" utility at medium screen sizes and above.

<x.div display="flex" flexDirection={{ xs: 'column', md: 'row' }}> {/* ... */} </x.div>
