With the increase of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people traded in their at-work offices for home offices. This, in turn, afforded people time to think through the perfect home office space. Having a well-put-together office space gives people the opportunity to focus better, and improve their energy and work efficiency.
With decorating a home office and being on platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams, where your background is visible, the challenge of creating that background can be an issue. This era of remote work brought the need for an office space and a meeting background is an essential piece of that puzzle. To help fit the pieces together, here’s your guide to creating the perfect Zoom and Teams-ready office background wall to impress all of your coworkers on the next call.
Paintings and Artwork
Create a gallery wall or an artwork background with beautiful paintings and pictures for your home office background. Either use a few small paintings or center one large painting on the wall behind you for perfect viewing. The artwork is your background focal point, but you also want to choose art that isn’t distracting to both you and your coworkers.
Having a bare wall can be boring and adding color to it can create a calming oasis. Use color psychology for your home office background by painting the walls to boost your mood and productivity during the workday. Colors like green and blue will bring a relaxing vibe to the space, while shades of orange, yellow, and pink bring positivity, energy, and creativity. If you’re on the artistic side, add different patterns and shapes on the wall.
Customize your home office background with a unique wallpaper design. This is your chance to go bold and let your personality shine. Choose a professional wallpaper, that also suits you and your personality. If installing real wallpaper seems like too much of a hassle, install peel-and-stick wallpaper instead. This will still give you that real wallpaper look and there are so many designs and patterns to choose from. You also don’t have to be a professional to install this type of wallpaper; it only requires the wallpaper, an exacto knife or scissors, and something to flatten the wallpaper down with.
A Brick Wall
If you want something simple that still slightly stands out, have a brick wall background for your home office background. Having a brick wall communicates productivity and sends a message that you are focused on work. This design is also versatile because you can use a regular or peel-and-stick brick wallpaper, or create an actual brick wall. This background isn’t too distracting and works well with lighting on camera. You can also paint the brick for a colorful or clean look.
Creating a home office background with built-in shelving is a great way to show off decor and store important items. This background is functional and allows your office space not to be cluttered or junky because of the extra storage. Add books, pictures, plants, lights, vases, and decor to your built-in shelving to show off your organized and well-designed backdrop.
