WHAT IS A GOOD VIDEO CONFERENCE BACKGROUND?
Let’s talk about your work environment. We need to adapt to our changing circumstances.
Your home is a professional sphere and no doubt there is a need to upgrade.
Let’s take a few simple steps to provide professional air in your workspace.
What I mean is, how to look professional over video conferencing.
We are all using zoom or Google rooms as a form of communication and our background needs to be more professional to be taken seriously.
Here are three simple steps to get yourself looking smart and professional over Zoom
STEP 1: HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY VIDEO CALL BACKGROUND?
If your dining table is your new office, hang a piece of art behind you—a print would do the trick but frame it well.
Situate the dining table near a window where you have lovely light in your space.
You can also put a floor light that will look good and will also be useful when the day becomes darker.
Check out Shop The Room for a great selection of lighting and home furniture and of course accessories.
STEP 2: DIY BACKGROUND FOR VIDEO CONFERENCING
If you own your property, then how about painting the wall in fresh paint. Not saying go wild and paint the room in blue. You can choose a fresh white colour ( there are 50 shades of white and grey, so choose well)
I always recommend using Benjamine Moore colours as their colours work very well in our spaces. They have a great selection, and the customer service is phenomenal.
Try to find out how your room is positioned. If it is North or South facing it will determine what shade you should be looking at.
Another item to add is a large house plant. Check out The Little Botanical all their plants come in beautiful pots and you only need to wait 7 days for delivery. Theor plants arrive beautifully packages. A treat!
Plants are always a great item to have in your working environment. Not only do they help create fresh and clean air, but they add personality into your space.
Sit on a good chair! Everyone can see what chair you are sitting on. So choose wisely. If you go cheap on your chair, then you will spend your money at the Osteopath. A good chair is a must.
You can get second hand Eames chairs at Rype Office
A good piece of art is a must!
If you choose something that you love and that will brighten up your mood and your space, then you should not hold back.
You do not need to invest in a huge piece, just hang some lovely shelves behind you, and you can put the art, books and some attractive object you have collected along your journey.
Check out Art In Office for a huge variety of original art pieces and prints all come framed too.
STEP 3 PROFESSIONAL BACKDROP FOR HOME OFFICE
If all of this sounds overwhelming and you really do not know where to start then invest in a professional interior designer. A few hours consultation to help you set your room up, so you look and feel professional could make a huge difference. Once you are set up properly, you will be more productive and ready to close all those deals.
I do hope these three simple steps will help you transform your Zoom working space.
How about filling in my colour questionnaire to find out what type of colour person you are. This will help guide you in the right direction when it comes to choosing the right colours for your home.
