It’s the beginning of 2020. We didn’t see this coming, but the restrictions we face due to coronavirus is resulting in more office closures, halted travels, and forced most of us to work from home for an indefinite amount of time.

Many choose Zoom for their remote work purposes, online meetings, and even classes. Because not all of us have the neatest and perfect backgrounds around the home, we’re forced to find some remote corners with empty backgrounds to hide our personal spaces or the mess that it’s become. Recognize yourself?

In truth, Zoom backgrounds have become of great help because (let’s face it) we don’t want to clean. For all other reasons of discomfort – it’s a great thing that Zoom has the virtual backgrounds option. If you’re already forcing yourself to find plain backgrounds for your Zoom calls, it’s time to get creative and select something fun or artsy to fill that space.
