I am currently using Graphene. Awesome theme… well done.
I like the column options however I have no requirement for the margins either side of the content area. I think this is where the background image displays.
Would you consider you an additional option where the content area covers the full width of the screen? All column templates would perform as they do now, only they would cover the full width of the browser screen.

Part of the problem with this is that while it may look great on a smaller monitor, lots of people have huge monitors. (Monitors are getting bigger all the time, as well.) In a big enough monitor, paragraphs become very wide and difficult to read. (That’s why newspapers and magazines use columns.) Anything that makes it difficult for people to read your blog/website is a real disincentive for them to come back.
You can make use of that space, however. Here are some ideas:
Use an interesting/arresting background image.
Use that area for social sharing buttons.
Use that area for something you want to appear in the same place all the time, such as a Paypal donation button.
I do all three of those things with my blogs (although some will question how interesting or arresting my background images are).
