15+ CSS Checkbox Styles

Adding custom checkboxes is a great way to elevate the design of your web projects. In this post, I’ll be sharing a collection of 15+ CSS checkbox styles that you can easily incorporate into your projects.

These versatile checkbox designs span a wide range of looks, from minimalist monochrome to vibrant neon. While building forms and interfaces, it’s often tempting to just use the basic checkboxes provided by browsers and operating systems. However, with some CSS tricks, it takes just minutes to implement sleek, stylish checkbox components that align with your brand aesthetic.

I’ll cover the HTML and CSS needed to recreate each of these checkbox options. You’ll also learn key techniques like using the ::before and ::after pseudo-elements and the :checked state to control styling.

Description

This snippet showcases a creative way to style checkboxes using SVG images and tiles. Each checkbox option is displayed as a tile with an icon and label, providing visual interest and clear affordance. When a tile is checked, it changes color and the icon fills in to indicate it is selected. The tile design and smooth transitions create an engaging interactive element to select options.

The checkbox inputs are hidden with clip path and control the tile UI state with the adjacent sibling combinator selector. On :checked, color styles are applied to the tile, icon, and label while a pseudo-element transforms to scale up, change color, and reveal a checkmark SVG background image. Transform and opacity transitions animate between states smoothly.

Description

This snippet creates animated checkboxes for todo list items using only HTML and CSS. When a checkbox is checked, the UI provides visual feedback:

  • The text fades out and changes color
  • A stroke animates to form a checkmark icon
  • Dash animations draw the box and line
  • A circle explodes into an animation

The animated icon feedback is engaging and polished. Smooth, staggered animations using transitions on stroke-dasharrays and CSS keyframe animation show quality interaction design.

The code is structured around a label wrapper for semantic grouping of the hidden checkbox input and its visual SVG icon indicator. CSS adjacent sibling and child selectors trigger state changes on the icon when the input is checked.
