Meet Virtually With Custom Shiplap Zoom Backgrounds

Black Timeless Fireplace Zoom Background

Working from home and trying to maintain a clean, work-friendly environment can be tricky, especially when you throw kids, pets, roommates, and last night's takeout into the mix. Every time you participate in a virtual meeting, you are inviting coworkers into your home through your computer screen. Now more than ever, millions of Americans are trying to find a good place for these virtual meetings that is quiet and without the distractions of others or a busy background. Even if you do find a good space for your virtual meeting, you may still even get interrupted.

You may relate to this infamous video of how this work-from-home situation went viral after this reporter had an unexpected interruption during live television.  

Why use a custom background?  

The most popular platform for teleconferencing for professionals in 2020 has been Zoom. The company offers a free service that features up to 100 participants at a time, up to 40-minute sessions, and custom virtual backgrounds. These backgrounds are lifesavers for those who are looking for an alternative to their dirty laundry, bedroom décor, or dishes piled up from trying to do life, school, and work all in the same place.

With these custom backgrounds, you could potentially meet virtually from the top of Mt. Everest, while riding a motorcycle, or in your dream home living space. No need to frantically try to rearrange your furniture or clean up your kid's science project 10 minutes before an important meeting. Just download a custom background for your next Zoom video call for a bit more privacy and a distraction-free backdrop.
