How To Make Discord Theme Css

CSS Programming

Today, I’m going to walk you through the process of creating your own custom Discord theme using CSS. If you’re tired of the default look of Discord and want to add a personal touch to your chat experience, creating a custom theme is the way to go. With CSS, you can change the colors, fonts, and overall design of Discord to match your own style and preferences.

Step 1: Understanding Discord Themes

Before diving into creating your own theme, it’s important to have a basic understanding of how Discord themes work. Discord themes are essentially CSS stylesheets that modify the appearance of the Discord client. These stylesheets are loaded by Discord when you launch the application, allowing you to customize various elements such as the background, text color, and button styles.

Step 2: Setting Up Your Development Environment

To get started, you’ll need a code editor to write your CSS. I recommend using Visual Studio Code, as it provides a great environment for writing and testing CSS code. Once you have your code editor set up, open the Discord application on your computer.

Step 3: Inspecting Discord Elements

To change the appearance of specific elements in Discord, we need to inspect the HTML structure of the application. Right-click anywhere in Discord and select “Inspect” from the context menu. This will open the developer tools in your browser.

In the developer tools, you’ll see the HTML structure of Discord. You can use the element selector (usually denoted by a mouse cursor icon) to select specific elements on the page and view their CSS properties. This will help you identify the classes and IDs of the elements you want to target in your custom theme.

Step 4: Writing Your Custom CSS

Now that you have a good understanding of Discord’s HTML structure and have identified the elements you want to modify, it’s time to write your custom CSS. Open your code editor and create a new CSS file. You can give it any name you like, such as “custom-theme.css”.

In your CSS file, you can use CSS selectors to target specific elements in Discord and apply custom styles. For example, to change the background color of the chat window, you can use the following code:

#chat .chat-window { background-color: #000000; }

Feel free to experiment with different CSS properties to achieve the desired look for your theme. You can change text colors, font styles, button styles, and much more.

Step 5: Applying Your Custom Theme

Once you’ve finished writing your custom CSS, it’s time to apply it to Discord. To do this, you’ll need a theme engine like BetterDiscord or Powercord. These tools allow you to load custom CSS stylesheets into Discord and apply them on the fly.

After installing and setting up your chosen theme engine, simply copy your custom CSS code and paste it into the theme editor. Save your changes and refresh Discord to see your new custom theme in action.


Creating a custom Discord theme using CSS is a great way to personalize your chat experience and make Discord truly your own. By understanding how Discord themes work and using the right tools, you can easily modify the appearance of Discord to match your style and preferences. So, go ahead and get creative with your CSS skills and make Discord reflect your unique personality!
