Answer

  • You can use developer tools (F12) and inspect specifict element.
  • You can e.g. in css give the elements border, color, margins, paddaings...  then you can see how much space each element occupies.
Example
#main-cointeiner {
    border:solid 2px red;
    background-color:#2ea920;
    margin: 4px 2px 5px 8px;
    padding: 3px 2px 1px 2px;
}
