In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, there are a plethora of furniture and houseware items that can be purchased or crafted for your home. From furniture that comes in different colors and patterns to unique and slick furnishings, it’s easy to shell out quite a bit of cash for the right pieces of furniture for your town.
Furniture in New Horizons can be found in three types of collections: series, sets, and themes. Collections are based on themes or designs and consist of around 10 furniture items along with matching wallpaper and flooring.
Themes are similar to series in that they are collections of furniture that would not be typically found in a home. They are also categorized by the Happy Home Academy and give the player bonus HHA points for placing all of the pieces in the same room.
Sets contain a mix of furniture items that match the theme of a room and can be placed either on the floor, in a wall (beginning in New Leaf), or on the ground outside. In addition, sets can be hung from the ceiling (beginning in New Horizons version 2.0) or placed on top of other furniture.
Trees are a vital part of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and they can be used to improve your island’s score, catch bugs, and provide fruit, Bells, or random furniture at times. Trees can be replanted using stamina gained by eating fruit, or they can be directly transplanted from other trees.
There are several different kinds of trees in New Horizons, including hardwood, acorn, and fruit. The fruit trees grow a variety of fruit, ranging from apples to cherries. These fruits can be eaten or sold for 100 Bells in each game. They are also the only kind of fruit that changes color during the Cherry Blossom Festival, but they don’t change in color during normal gameplay.
Non-fruit trees are a little different. These trees resemble the hardwood tree but bear up to three pieces of fruit, instead of just one. They are able to be harvested by shaking them, or they may be spotted under a non-fruit tree randomly or when hit with an axe.
Weeds are a common problem in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but they can be avoided by picking them off the ground and moving them to another spot. Weeds aren’t an essential ingredient for DIY recipes, but they can be a good addition to your yard, and you can occasionally sell them at Nook’s Cranny for a few Nook Miles+.
Eating fruit is a fun way to earn Nook Miles in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as it adds to a small fruit counter that can be seen in the corner of your screen. It’s not as rewarding as eating a full apple, but it does add to your overall health, which can be a nice bonus in the long run.
