Zoom meetings are here to stay, and as you sign on for your fifth call of the day, you might want to switch up your surroundings with a sleek digital background that transports you to a totally different space. Whether you're on a call in a messy bedroom or chilling on the couch, you can virtually change up where you are in a couple of clicks by swapping out your physical backdrop for a digital one. That's where the best Zoom backgrounds come in handy to give your home a virtual makeover in an instant.

You’ve probably been using Zoom’s virtual background feature for a while, but if you’re new to it, it’s easy to start. First, make sure you have Zoom version 4.6.0 or higher on your Mac or PC computer, or if you're using the app version for iOS with an iPhone or Android, you phone needs to be an 8 or later. After you have everything set up, sign into your Zoom account.

You can change your virtual background in a meeting or from the homepage. Go to Settings and click on the Virtual Background tab. Then, click the plus (+) sign and upload your high resolution image. Zoom suggests using images or videos from royalty-free image services, such as Pixabay, Unsplash, and Pexels.

While a lot of people are uploading whatever they want into this background generator, one of the most ways to have the most fun of the feature is to find photos of your dream home. There are a lot of home interior companies sharing gorgeous virtual room backgrounds including some from Williams-Sonoma, West Elm, and Behr paint. You can download many of these directly from company blog posts, or you can download the images right from this post. It may not be an HGTV marathon, but you can still get a little home makeover rush with any of these backdrops.
