# Angular Material mat-form-field set custom height

I have a couple of mat-form-field inputs with the following configuration:

<mat-form-field class="example-full-width" appearance="standard">
<input type="number" matInput placeholder="Polígono">
</mat-form-field>


If I set the background color to red, I get the following result:

As you can see, there is a huge bottom-top padding/margin size which I don’t need at all and that makes the input appearance not user-frendly.

How can I avoid this and make the input size attach only to the text area?

.example-full-width {
