Tips for isolated objects
If you do have white walls or even a proper professional studio this blog shouldn't be of much interest to you but if you are in the same situation as me I hope this helps.
To achieve a neatly isolated object all you need is a white sheet or paper of preference more thick than the regular one that you can curl behind your image. I got a large 2 square m one from a local bookstore while I was looking from wrapping for my Christmas presents. It worked out pretty well thus far. Make sure you place it near a window or have your ceiling light on when you take your photograph so that you or something other around your "lil studio" doesn't create any shadows.
An alternative to the large paper is a white (and clean) refrigerator or a white painted door and you can place a white sheet of regular A4 paper from your printer and just take a lil adjustments done with photoshop to remove certain lines. I have tried this one too.
I hope someone finds this useful.
