Green screens work best, but it can be any plain colour. A plain white wall
as your background works fine for most people.

I usually found the kits to be overpriced. Easier and cheaper to buy the
frame and fabric separately.

This is the frame I bought
still in stock at the online bookstore.

The green backdrop is what seems to be out of stock locally, but is
available offshore if you don't mind the wait

As for potential backgrounds, they're everywhere now. A search on "zoom
backgrounds" yields lots of choice.
