You may find this article from Arch Wiki very useful: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB/Tips_and_tricks

What I got out of that article for my modest needs is setting wallpaper/background:

add line GRUB_BACKGROUND=/path/to/your/image.jpg into /etc/default/grub and run update-grub. Personally I use GRUB_BACKGROUND=/usr/share/backgrounds/Foggy_Forest_by_Jake_Stewart.jpg which is one of the default wallpapers
