The navigation drawer is primarily used to house links to the pages in your application. Using null as the starting value for its v-model will initialize the drawer as closed on mobile and as open on desktop. It is common to pair drawers with the v-list component using the nav property.



Colored drawer

Navigation drawers can be customized to fit any application's design. Here we apply a custom background color and an appended content area using the append slot.

Permanent floating drawer

By default, a navigation drawer has a 1px right border that separates it from content. In this example we want to detach the drawer from the left side and let it float on its own. The floating property removes the right border (or left if using right).


When using the mini-variant prop, the drawer will shrink (default 80px) and hide everything inside of v-list except the first element. In this example we use the .sync modifier that allows us to tie the expanding/contracting of the drawer programmatically.


A temporary drawer sits above its application and uses a scrim (overlay) to darken the background. This drawer behavior is mimicked by default when on mobile. Clicking outside of the drawer will cause it to close.

Right positioned

Navigation drawers can also be positioned on the right side of your application (or an element). This is also useful for creating a side-sheet with auxillary information that may not have any navigation links. When using RTL you must explicitly define right for your drawer.

Expand on hover

Places the component in mini-variant mode and expands once hovered. Does not alter the content area. Width can be controlled with the mini-variant-width property.


Apply a custom background to your drawer. If you need to customize v-img's properties you can use the img slot.

Combined drawers

In this example we define a custom width to accommodate our nested drawer. Using v-layout we ensure that the drawer and list stack horizontally next to each other.

Bottom drawer

Using the bottom prop, we are able to relocate our drawer on mobile devices to come from the bottom of the screen. This is an alternative style and only activates once the mobile-break-point is met.
