If you're wanting to make your house look totally rad in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then it's really up to you to put in the hard yards, well, the Bells.

Animal Crossing New Horizons House Customization Guide

If you're someone that's invested in customizing your home, then you're going to want to do more than just expand the first floor of your abode and upgrade it from its tent status that you encounter when you first land on the deserted island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. If you want to start sprucing up your house, then you're going to want to actually purchase all the various expansions for size for your home that you can from Resident Services. Every upgrade is picked up via Tom Nook at Resident Services, and the only requirement to net them one at a time and to pay them off. Here's a list of every single upgrade that you need to net via size before you can customize other aspects of your house:

  • Main room upgrade
  • Adding a back room
  • Adding a room on the left
  • Adding a room on the right
  • Adding a second floor

Once you've knocked through all of those upgrades, you'll then be available to customize things like your door and the exterior of your house. We're talking about things like the roof, wall, the door, and the mailbox. You can pick a variety of materials, a bunch of colors, curtains, and you can also change the style of the architecture which can range from the usual brick and mortar

Now that you have our Animal Crossing New Horizons house customization guide to hand, you too should be able to pick up your dream digs in no time. Yeah, you're going to have to buy out all the room extensions first, but we think that if you're really invested in your home that it'll be worth it.
