The background color of the sites can be changed via CSS. In case you don't want to write your custom CSS, you can also apply any of the in-built themes to your SharePoint sites. Theme can be changed using following steps:

  • Go To Site Settings -> Change the Look (Under Look and Feel Section)
  • Select any of the available theme on the page, change the colors, images etc. based on your requirement and click on Try it Out to see a preview.
    • If you like the preview, then click on Yes, Keep it and your site would acquire the new theme.

The corners of a web part can be made rounded using a CSS property called:

border-radius:<<Pixel Units here>>
