Happy Home Paradise, the DLC for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, was released last November and brought a lot of new stuff to Nintendo's game.

You can modify the interior and exterior as much as you want thanks to the new customization features, such as room dividers, columns or ceiling decorations.

But the customization doesn't stop there, as soon as you're done with the story-driven portion of the DLC, you'll have access to new customization possibilities on your island. Namely, the customization of the houses of your villagers. And yes, you can then get rid of interiors like these and replace them with your most beautiful creations.

To do this, you will have to play Happy Home Paradise to the end, that is, furnish 30 vacation homes and create all the community places, with the clothing store last. The opening of the latter will bring a festival and the end of the narration related to the DLC, and the next day, you will receive a call from Tom Nook who asks you to come to see him.

He will explain to you that your villagers also want to be able to benefit from your talents as a decorator, and you can therefore customize the house of your inhabitants as you see fit. You will only have to choose the most unsightly house and Tom Nook will ask you to pay the modest sum of 9000 bells to transform the exterior and/or the interior.

When the job is done, Tom Nook will be so grateful that you saved the island's reputation that he will reward you with Nook Miles. You know what you have left to do !
