How to change colour of Terminal window

I really was not aware of this function within Terminal, unless I read this article few months back. If you use Terminal very often, you might be bored of its monotonous black and green colour. Using this tipyou can spruce Terminal window up so it looks a bit cooler you can very easily, and only takes a couple of clicks, along with this there are mutiple options to really drill down and change and fine tune the colour settings.
Here are the steps to follow in order to change the Terminal skin/colour:
Go to Terminal > Preference > Settings.
On the left coloumn there are multiple options from where you can chose color combination of your choice. Clicking on each option will enable you to see the default settings.
If you are lost somewhere, you can then click Default to set is as the default to load and from next time onwards it will open Terminal in default skin.
