Best way to create add borders on webpage html?

I want to make borders to be consistent throughout the pages. What do you think is the best method to do this? I have added an image below, I had in mind to have the red areas blank, cutting the menu borders and all the rest on the sides so it all looks aligned and centered. thanks a mil

Answer

The best way to do this would be to wrap your content within a container, and set the max-width for this (70%) or so, then if you want to add borders to this container you can do so.

Add <div class="container"> before any content you want to be centered/contained, then close the div at the end, and add the following to your css:

.container {
  max-width: 70%;
  margin-left: auto;
  margin-right: auto;
}
