Margin vs Padding in groups

Imagine the following scenario: I want to achieve some extra space between two groups that does not apply to the rest of the groups in the column group (i. e. equal gap spacing not an option). Now I could achieve that by adding a bottom margin or padding. Are there any reasons/best practice for preferring one over the other in that specific case or in general?

Many thanks!

Hi @moritzhd :wave:

When you use “padding”, you are expanding the size of the group. Doing this, your group will become larger what, sometime, can cause some issues with responsiveness.

When you use “margin” you are creating a margin (space) between the group and other element. What will make your group stay with the same size it was.

For best pratice, it is better to use “margin”.
