🎉 Material UI v5 is out! Head to the migration guide to get started.


In Material Design, the physical properties of paper are translated to the screen.

The background of an application resembles the flat, opaque texture of a sheet of paper, and an application’s behavior mimics paper’s ability to be re-sized, shuffled, and bound together in multiple sheets.

<Paper elevation={0} />
<Paper />
<Paper elevation={3} />


If you need an outlined surface, use the variant prop.

<Paper variant="outlined" />
<Paper variant="outlined" square />
