The design of an E-commerce store plays an important role in creating a brand impression among a niche audience, enhancing the shopping experience by making it easy for the shoppers to use the store, and convey the brand message correctly.

In Magento 2, the page design mainly consists of layouts, containers, and blocks. The structure of the webpage in Magento 2 is represented by the layout and it can be applied to a page from the admin panel.

The admin can change the Magento 2 product page layout, category layout, as well as the default page layout from the backend.

For each option, the merchants can set within six layouts.

  • No layer updates

  • Empty

  • 1 column

  • 2 columns with left bar

  • 2 columns with right bar

  • 3 columns

The product and category page has No Layer Updates as a default. In the Page Layout, 1 column is set as the default.
