We've chosen Tailwind to style our Next.js project. Its utility-first approach lets us develop faster by combining pre-built classes directly in HTML. Tailwind promotes code maintainability and generates lean stylesheets for optimal performance. Additionally, its built-in responsive classes simplify adapting our website to any screen size.

While Tailwind offers a powerful and efficient approach to styling your Next.js project, it's important to remember that you have choices! Next.js provides excellent support for a variety of other popular styling methods, allowing you to select the one that best suits your project's needs and your development preferences.

The Next.js styling documentation (opens in a new tab) offers a comprehensive guide to styling your project, including detailed explanations and examples for each approach. Explore the styling page to learn more and make an informed decision.

Personally, we recommend CSS Modules (opens in a new tab). Its compatibility with Server Side Rendering avoids potential hydration mismatches, leading to a smooth user experience.


To accelerate development and simplify our Tailwind workflow, we've chosen Flowbite components. These pre-built UI elements seamlessly integrate with Tailwind, saving us time writing custom code. They also reduce complexity for those new to Tailwind, and their clean, maintainable code with built-in dark mode support keeps our project modern and efficient.

Additionally, Flowbite includes pre-designed website sections like hero sections, headers, and footers within Flowbite Blocks (opens in a new tab), which further accelerate building landing pages and marketing materials.

While Flowbite offers great features, creating a unique user experience (UX) can be a major selling point for your product. Consider exploring UI component libraries in Tailwind ecosystem like DaisyUI (opens in a new tab), shadcn (opens in a new tab), or even venture beyond Tailwind with frameworks like Joy UI (opens in a new tab) (from the MUI team), Mantine (opens in a new tab) (a great open-source collection of components and sections), or Radix Themes (opens in a new tab) (known for its accessibility focus).
