Equal height Flexbox columns in Chrome

To create two equal columns using Flexbox:

  • The parent container gets display: flex

  • Each column is created by a div and they get flex: 1 to grow / shrink

To stretch the child of the first column:

  • The first column is also given display: flex so that its children can have flex properties and grow

  • The aside child is given flex: 1 and will grow / shrink

This is the easiest guide to Flexbox you could ask for.

Flexbox Compatibility: IE11+ and all modern browsers. Watch out for Safari which requires the -webkit- prefix.


With Bootstrap: Here is the fiddle from your comment with my changes added. The 1px gap on the left has been removed with div.flex.row:before, div.flex.row:after { display: none }

Relevant answer: Remove 1px gap when using display:flex in Chrome

I have stripped all unnecessary classes for this example. Currently, both column heights are determined by the tallest column. You could also have the columns fill in the entire height of the page with height: 100vh on the flex container — read more about viewport units here.

Viewport Units Compatibility: Viewport Units are almost well supported.

Update: To give a column a larger width, give it a larger flex value. I have changed the second column in this example to flex: 3 and it will be wider.

body {
  color: red;
  margin: 0;
.flex {
  display: flex;
  /*Should the columns span the entire height of
the page? Use:
  height: 100vh;*/
.column {
  flex: 1;
.column:first-child {
  display: flex;
.column:last-of-type {
  background: #000;
  flex: 3;
aside {
  flex: 1;
  background: #F90;

CSS columns not working when divs have equal height
Those columns are stacking vertically, not horizontally. So it goes: item1 item4 item7 item2 item5 item3 item6 You can achieve the desired behaviour by simply removing the column-count property: Edit: If you want full masonry behaviour, my advice is to use the jQuery Masonry plugin. Not only will it have covered a lot of edge-cases you will have mis

Flexbox child not reading height/width of parent
The .body parent of .super-thing is display: flex so it's children don't inherit it's height or width if they don't have flex properties. The power of flex compels you! Set flex: 1 on .super-thing so it grows and shrinks with a 1% margin to create a gap. There is no need for a width or height. .super-thing { background-color: white; margin: 1%; box-shadow: 2px 1px 1px #000; flex: 1; }

Equal Column Height on Hidden Elements
Before revealing/hiding the content reset the height that was added to the container .blocks to `auto'. Earlier the height was fixed(on initial calculation) so any content added would overlap. JS //on click of the button $('button').on('click', function () { $('.blocks').css("height", "auto"); $('.hidden-content').show(); setEqualHeight($('.blocks')); }); Fiddle
