Use: Best practice
Dividers are used sparingly to separate significant sections of content



See this in Storybook


When to use divider

  • To signify a change in topic, content type, or expected interaction.
  • To create visual separation between chunks of content. Divider can help users distinguish between blocks of similar content at-a-glace.

When to consider something else

  • Avoid using divider between short, individual items that are in close proximity with one another, unless they are separating navigation links. Consider using white space or headers instead to create vertical separation.
  • Use a background color box or card to separate a chunk of interactive elements, like search controls, from a list of search results.
