In the page options area, you can choose between two boxed/full-width footer modes. You can also define an image or gradient background for the footer using the background customizer.
In theme options footer section, you can set the appearance of the details of footer and sub footer elements such as the typography, padding and colors. You can also decide if your footer is fixed or normal.
The downside in this scenario is that you cannot see how the progress of your work while you are doing it. You have to work using trial and error so it takes up a lot of time.
