How To Make Thick Divider In Notion

How To Articles

I have been a loyal user of Notion for many years, and I take great pleasure in personalizing my workspace to suit my preferences. One particular element that I frequently feel the need to adjust is the divider that separates various sections on my Notion pages. Although Notion does offer a standard divider, it tends to be too slim for my taste and does not provide the visual distinction I am after. In this article, I will walk you through the process of creating a thicker divider in Notion, so that you can add your own flair to your pages and enhance their visual appeal.

Step 1: Insert a Horizontal Rule

To create a thick divider in Notion, we’ll start by inserting a horizontal rule. This will serve as the foundation for our custom divider. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open your Notion page and navigate to the section where you want to add the thick divider.
  2. Place your cursor at the beginning of the section.
  3. Click on the “+” button in the toolbar to open the block menu.
  4. Search for “Divider” and select the “Horizontal Rule” option.

Once you’ve inserted the horizontal rule, you’ll notice that it’s relatively thin. Don’t worry, though, we’ll make it thicker in the next step.

Step 2: Modify the Horizontal Rule

Now that we have the horizontal rule in place, let’s make it thicker. Here’s how:

  1. Click on the horizontal rule to select it.
  2. In the top toolbar, you’ll see a format options menu. Click on the “Format” option.
  3. A dropdown menu will appear. Click on the “Style” option.
  4. In the Style menu, you’ll see a slider labeled “Thickness.” Drag the slider to the right to increase the thickness of the divider.
  5. Keep adjusting the thickness until you’re satisfied with the appearance.

By increasing the thickness of the horizontal rule, you’re effectively creating a thick divider that will visually separate your sections in Notion.

Step 3: Add Personal Touches

Now that you have a thick divider, it’s time to add some personal touches to make it truly your own. Here are a few ideas:

  • Color: Click on the horizontal rule, go to the format options menu, and select a different color to match your personal style.
  • Icons: Insert an icon block next to the divider to add visual interest. You can choose from a wide range of icons available in Notion’s library.
  • Labels: Add labels or captions above or below the divider to provide context or highlight important information.

By experimenting with different personal touches, you can make your thick divider stand out and enhance the overall aesthetics of your Notion pages.


Creating a thick divider in Notion is a simple yet effective way to customize your workspace and give it a personal touch. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily modify the default divider into a visually appealing element that enhances the organization and visual hierarchy of your Notion pages. So go ahead, get creative, and make your Notion experience truly your own!
