An Extra Room!

Nook’s latest expansion of your house has left you with a new room to the back of your house! Now you can finally start decorating your house with room themes in mind.

Room Ideas

You can decorate your house however you like, but here are some ideas for how to decorate your house if you’re lacking in ideas.

  • Make lots of wooden furniture and customize it! - Making wooden furniture is a great way to get a full set of furniture. Customizing it also gives you the ability to be a bit more creative with it too! Remember, you’ll need some customization kits from Nook’s Cranny before you can customize furniture. Having things all the same color also helps increase your Happy Home Academy scoring, so color coordination is important.

If you’re lacking in tables, bug boxes make a great alternative!

  • Room with a function - You could make your new room a kitchen, bathroom or even a study! You can decorate it to fit a certain room type. The more you play, the more DIYs and items you’ll find that will fit your room’s purpose.

If you collect enough fancy things, you can turn your new room into a posh study.

  • Storage! - If you haven’t got a clue how to decorate your new room, use it to keep your favourite bugs and fish on display! You can take your time deciding how to decorate.

Don’t worry if you’re torn between room ideas either! As you upgrade your house more, you’ll expand to have more and more rooms! You can have a different theme for each one.

Speak to Nook

Once you’ve had a chance to look at your new room and maybe decorate it a bit, pop over to Resident Services and talk to Nook about the expansion fees.

This loan will take you a while to pay back, as it will set you back 348,000 Bells! Once again, this is a zero-interest loan so you can pay it back whenever you like. If you continue to put 50,000 bells towards it each day, though, it’ll only take a week to pay off!
