Tip: For best results, use an image with a width-to-height pixel ratio of 16:9. We recommend 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is a common size that’s big enough to look great in mmhmm.

Use your real room as a background

In the sidebar, go to the Background section and uncheck the box next to Background to show your real room.
