Using background colors are good way of breaking up longer page content. You can do this by adding pre-defined styles within the block settings as follows.
- Create of select Block element on page, such as in page example here
- Under Block settings add CSS class under Additional CSS class(es)
- lightBlue – adds light blue color and pattern to background
- darkBlue – adds dark blue color and pattern to background
Note: Use appropriate color can depend on how it contrasts with page content.
