RecyclerView decorator which adds spacing around each tile within a grid layout
Decorator which adds spacing around the tiles in a Grid layout RecyclerView. Apply to a RecyclerView with:
SpacesItemDecoration decoration = new SpacesItemDecoration(16);
Feel free to add any value you wish for SpacesItemDecoration. That value determines the amount of spacing.
public class SpacesItemDecoration extends RecyclerView.ItemDecoration {
private final int mSpace;
public SpacesItemDecoration(int space) {
this.mSpace = space;
public void getItemOffsets(Rect outRect, View view, RecyclerView parent, RecyclerView.State state) {
outRect.left = mSpace;
outRect.right = mSpace;
outRect.bottom = mSpace;
// Add top margin only for the first item to avoid double space between items
if (parent.getChildAdapterPosition(view) == 0) = mSpace;
