Force stop your System UI from Settings>Apps>All>System UI...
Your nav bars will be transparent and then you can set your desired wallpaper.
Press THANKS if I deserve it!!

when you are setting wallpaper, do not zoom out wallpaper completely but zoom out just enough that you leave some part of wallpaper below bottom visible edge at the time of setting wallpaper. with this way, the part you left below bottom edge will cover softkeys & they will appear transparent.

while setting up wallpaper the area you are looking at lies above softkeys, that's the reason you need to leave some part of wallpaper below it

I hope it helps
I had this confusion too...but sorted out this way
