CSS Logical Properties

Chakra UI provides pretty good support for bi-directional (bidi) CSS properties. For our shorthand props, we provide a *Bidi suffix to manage the rtl/ltr switching.

import { css } from "@chakra-ui/styled-system"

const theme = {
  direction: "rtl", // ltr | rtl

const styles = css({
  mt: "40px",
  // bi-directional `margin-right`
  // `margin-right` in ltr, `margin-left` in rtl
  mrBidi: "30px",


const cssLogicalValueMap = {
  float: { left: "inline-start", right: "inline-end" },
  clear: { left: "inline-start", right: "inline-end" },
  resize: { horizontal: "block", vertical: "inline" },
  textAlign: { left: "start", right: "end" },
  captionSize: { top: "block-start", bottom: "block-end" },

const cssLogicalPropertiesMap = {
  // Margin and Padding Logical Properties
