yeah i never go into any details with backgrounds, its one of my biggest flaws
Doesnt really have to be a flaw though; I hardly ever put any detail in my backgrounds; and neither do Jagondudo and tmkunt, to name a few. You just have to find a way to make them apt without being complicated. A textured gradient or something can often do the trick pretty well.
A good way to use simple backgrounds is to show light; if you have the lightsource on your object top right, you could make the background a gradient from light to dark top right to bottom left.
