How to customize furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Customizing furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets you add personality to your home.

If you're tired of all-natural aesthetics in your camp then learning how to customize furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons should be top of your to-do list.

The items that you craft in Animal Cross: New Horizons will almost always be standard wooden looks, and in past games you might have had to save up more resources to craft something a bit fancier with a different paintjob. But in the new game, you can simply customize your items to get the right feel straight away. Here's how to customize furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

First off, you'll need to craft the item you want. Luckily both crafting and customizing furniture in ACNH are done in the same place: Resident Services. Go find the blue tent that those Nook boys hang out in and you'll find a workbench for crafting. After learning the blueprint for the furniture you want, you'll be able to craft it at the DIY Workshop, as long as you have the resources necessary. 

After a few days on the island, there'll be a broadcast by Tom Nook announcing that he's offering a new workshop on customization. Once that happens you can head back to Resident Services and use the same workbench to change the paint color and, if present, fabric patterns of your furniture. For instance, beds can have a wooden frame of one color and the bedding made up of another pattern. You'll be able to unlock more patterns and paint colors will require a certain number of resources.

You can also use Custom Designs for fabric patterns, so you can put your own amazing drawings on your cushions and pillows. You can import custom designs from Animal Crossing: New Leaf or Happy Home Designer using NookLink when the service launches.
