If you are an iPhone user, you simply have to press Settings (located on the bottom right). If you use Android, you have to press the menu button (the icon with the three dots at the top right) and then touch Settings from the box that appears.
Now, go to Chat Settings and click on the menu relating to the background.

If you want you can also choose something from the Library backgrounds of WhatsApp. In the latter case, the iPhone will have a package ready to use as wallpaper. On Android you’ll be asked to download a package of images from the Internet.
Whatever your decision, select the image that you like the most and the changes will be immediately displayed. If you are not convinced of your choice, you can always reconsider it and restore the default background provided by WhatsApp simply selecting the Restore background button on the iPhone, or clicking on the Default button in the Android version of the app (still in the selection screen of the wallpaper).
