The Kendo UI BottomNavigation allows you to alter the appearance of the widget by setting its itemFlow, themeColor, border, shadow and fill options.

The example below demonstrates how to modify the appearance by using the above settings:

    <nav id="bottomnavigation"></nav>

        $(document).ready(function () {
                items: [
                    { data: { view: "home" }, icon: "home", text: "Home", selected: true },
                    { data: { view: "calendar" }, icon: "calendar", text: "Calendar" },
                    { data: { view: "profile" }, icon: "user", text: "Profile" }
                positionMode: "absolute",
                themeColor: "secondary",
                fill: "solid",
                border: false,
                shadow: true
