Full-Width Column Webpart available to Team Site Template
In the Modern Experience, allow the option to add "Full-Width Column" webpart. Currently, this is exclusively available for Communication Site template. Would be great to have this available for Team Site template. It does not look aesthetically appealing have this area of white space on the right hand on a site page.
We initially didn’t enable the full width column on team sites due to the vertical navigation on the left and left justification of team site pages. How do you imagine it should work/look on those pages?
Omar Stewart commented
The navigation and justification can stay exactly how it is on a communication site. It doesn't have to be consistent for every page.
If a Team would like to promote content, News, or Power BI Report, it would be great if the Full-Width Page Layout was available.
As it stands, Users are linking to Communication Sites from Team Sites for the sole purpose of accessing the Full-Width Layout.
Have you guys ever coded anything? Ever heard of Bootstrap?

As employees are upgraded to higher resolution / larger monitors, the modern team sites show an apparent flaw in its layout, leaving wasted space to the right.
Either replace the current max-width resolution to support these larger screens, or remove it altogether.
This step alone will provide more control for laying out the page and I can stop using a custom script editor just to achieve this functionality.
This then opens the door for more layout options in the future.
Please open up more design options for Team sites modern pages
Please open up more design options for Team sites modern pages - hiding left navigation, adding more top navigation options, remove white space left and right, and remove white space between web parts, ability to remove title area or add more content/rows (sub title) and/or use images as background for content/text web parts. No code solutions please - not all of us can write code. Thanks!
We've been using Modern script editor to attempt to modify CSS to accomplish something similar to this across pages with mixed results.
We would like to have the 100% width available on all modern theme pages and available at any level.
We see this as being handled differently based on where its applied.
If the 100% width is applied within the header of the page it goes full across with the left and right panels being nested under the header.
If its applied within the page area below the header then it is nested between the left and right panels when they are used. The reason for this is that the 1/2/3 column approach had padding and spacing that is undesirable. If the row contained columns padding is fine but if its 100% width then don't apply padding.
We have an old Team Sites. All of our images are located inside the Team Sites.
If we use a separated site collection "communication site", we lose "Organization Site Assets" and "Recent Images" functionality.
We however need tools to display large amounts of information (tables) using efficient use of the screen: full-width is what is needed.
We set "left navigation" to hide using PowerShell.
Full width and Top Navigation should always be an option.
We are not using left navigation for our team site, so we need 100% width or it will look very bad.

We find the documents web part is to small for the small right hand side column causing it to miss information. Despite there being plenty of space on the right to spread out in to.
Phil Bigos commented
If you remove the vertical navigation, then allow for full width. It looks like most individuals would like to have the option. Communications sites look nice but lack some functionality of the team site. The team site is very functional, but looks terrible.
It would be great to merge this for my application.
Please enable Full Width on Team Site! Thank you!!

Need to use the Full Width Column. Please add and let us decide how it will look and when to use it. Thank you!
This is still highly relevant, however I do agree that in all reality users should just utilise a communications build instead of a teams site.
However, our admin provider has created teams sites instead of communications on multiple occasions and I must say the disparity in design aesthetic between teams and comms sites left me waiting for the comms template, instead of utilising the teams sites. It looks outdated.

Our company has deployed 38" curved Dell monitors across the organization. The modern SharePoint pages that look so great on our laptops look very odd on large screens (lots of ugly white space on the right side). If I may suggest: MS could create a responsive layout for larger screens, to take advantage of the real estate.
Nicolle's solution, from November 16, 2019, involving adding some custom css to the spfx webpart worked for me. I just added the customStyles.module.scss, from the git repository , to the same location as there, and everything seems to be ok.
All features of a Communications site (Top nav, footer, full-witdh column, etc.) should be also available to Teams site. This way, we can benefit and optimize on the Teams site, instead of having the user to go from sites to sites (for same team members). Also, by having those features in Teams site, it would allow the user to navigate in the SharePoint site that would be added as a tab in Teams (users could use the tab in Teams to view content of SharePoint and navigate with top nav/footer directly in Teams). Right now, when adding a SharePoint tab to Teams, the left navigation does not show.

To answer your question, I would imagine it to have either the option of having
1) a fourth column so we can add more content and/or
2) center everything on the page and have a top bar with drop-downs
It is not difficult to enable these features. Just look at how the communication sites look. We want the look-and-feel of a communication site but be able to utilize Team-Site features.
Microsoft is a multi-billion dollar company, I am pretty sure you have developers who can establish literally anything.
It is difficult to make the endusers understand why so much space is wasted at the right of the section. Extremely frustrating. Please deliver and act!
Why does Microsoft not update on this - Why hundreds of users complaining and nothing is done?
Please would a MS staff member actually respond and advise timeframe for this simple option to be added
