With the current global pandemic, many people have been forced to work from home with conference calls being conducted from our living room, kitchen, or other areas of your home. While working from home, it’s important to remain professional when dealing with fellow co-workers, management and clients, so you want to ensure your surroundings are appropriate during your conference and video calls.

Certain colours can make a big difference in providing a professional appearance during these calls. We’ve outlined some of our top colours to create the perfect video conferencing background for your home workspace.

Cool Grey

A mid-tone, cool grey coloured background looks very elegant making your workspace look professional to everyone who can see it. Cool grey also has a calming effect, helping you to remain focused on important tasks at hand.

Pastel Pink

This is a very popular colour because it’s bold yet soft and won’t feel overwhelming. Pastel pink is a great colours for anyone who wants a subtle pop of colour while helping to boost focus and creativity. Pastel pink can also help promote concentration, so it’s a great choice for a home office.

Light Aqua

Navy is a very classic choice that is both refreshing and adaptable, making it a great choice for backgrounds. Some experts refer to navy as the new neutral. Navy helps you stay focused while increasing productivity levels, looks very crisp and clean on camera, and makes for a great choice for your next video conference.


Cream is a great colour for rooms with a cool light as it helps prevent the space from looking too white or sterile. Cream is best paired with deeper wood tones to help it stand out

Cool Green
