We are now officially living in the world of working from home and socially distant socializing…which means your schedule is surely full of Zoom call appointments for both work and leisure. If you’re looking to spice up your Zoom session with an ultra-sophisticated look from the Design Team here at Kathy Kuo Home, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you’re looking to hide your less-than-tidy home office from your colleagues, put a shield up against background family members or pets, or you just want to switch things up for fun–we’ve put together some Zoom background options from some of our favorite Design Projects (including our own showroom in Manhattan–which our team misses so much these days).
Setting a Zoom background is oh-so-easy–just follow the easy steps below.
Step 1: Save the Image of Your Choice
The first step is to choose from the images below. Right click, or control click, on the image of your choice and select then “save image as” and choose the location on your computer where you’d like to save it.

Step 2: Log into Zoom
Once you have your KKH image of choice saved, log into Zoom and open your settings from the main menu. Enable the “Virtual Background” option (from the Virtual Background tab) and click on the plus sign that appears right next to “choose your virtual background.”
Step 3: Set Your KKH Background
After clicking “choose your virtual background,” select the KKH image you saved during Step 1. You may need to make sure that “mirror my video” is un-checked if you’re having any issues.
For additional instructions and troubleshooting, you can find Zoom’s full set of instructions for virtual background here!
Step 4: Screenshot & Share!
We would love to see your KKH virtual backgrounds in action! If you screenshot your next Zoom call with one of our virtual background images, share on social with the hashtag #lovewhereyoulive, and tag us on Instagram (@KathyKuoHome). We’ll share our favorites on our stories!
