Different between “margin” & “padding”

Hi, I have been confused about (margin and padding) in HTML-CSS. I looked up but didn’t see much difference. Can someone give me examples of that? Thank you

Margin is basically the marginal space around an element. Padding is the “empty” space used to give more space between an element and its border.

To help myself remember, I used to think of it as an element being a house: Margin → Big lawn space, Padding →Big room size.

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your explanation.

Your welcome, I’m so glad I could help! Have a great time learning coding!
