Having the same and constant roof color in Animal Crossing New Horizons or ACNH is no fun and can make one bored. If you also think similarly, you might want to change the color of your roof to a new one that you find fresher and gives a whole new vibe. The question is can you change your roof color in this game?
The short answer to the question is yes. Animal Crossing New Horizons allows everyone to change the color of their roof. At the beginning, a player like you will only be able to change the color of your roof after you have successfully paid off a loan and select to upgrade your house again. When you are in the conversation with Tom Nook, you will be asked which color that you want for your roof. Feel free to choose any color from the options that show up. After that, you will be able to find the color of your roof has changed when you open the game the next day.
After completing a few updates from Tom Nook, you will get the privilege to unlock the option to change the color of your roof every time you want. In order to that to that stage, it will be needed for you to progress through some home upgrade projects, such as:
- Upgrading from rent – pay off moving fees of 5,000 Miles
- Building new home with mortgage fee of 98,000 Bells
- Upgrading your home (single room size expansion) with mortgage fee of 198,000 Bells
- Upgrading your home to include an additional one with mortgage fee of 368,000 Bells
- Upgrading your home to include two additional rooms with mortgage fee of 548,000 Bells
You are able to simply do it by going to the Town Hall and talking to him. Then, go to the Construction Consultation Counter and select the About my home option. The next thing that you need to do is to choose I want to customize option.
How much does it cost to change the color of your roof? If you want to change it, you will have to pay 5,000 Bells every time you want to change it. Actually, if you change the color of your roof while buying an extension, there will be no need for you to pay for anything extra. After paying 5,000 Bells, it will take a day for the color to be changed. Spending that amount is actually worth it.
Talking about changing the color of your roof in Animal Crossing New Horizons, there are a total of eight available colors to choose from. The available colors include:
- Red tile
- Pink tile
- Yellow tile
- Blue tile
- Aqua tile
- Green tile
- Purple tile
- Black tile
Keep in mind that each color mentioned above shares the same price and it will be changed in the same amount of time.
In the previous titles of the Animal Crossing series (Animal Crossing Wild World, Animal Crossing City Folk, Animal Crossing New Leaf), the color of the roof is able to be changed with a paint. In the series, the term paint is used to refer to an item that makes it possible for the players to change the color of the roof of their house. This one is able to be purchased from all the upgraded stores of Tom Nook.
In these games mentioned above, after paying off their mortgage, the players will be asked by Tom Nook what color to put on the plans without having to pay for the extra charge. They are free to buy cans of paint if they want to change the color of the roof and the process will take a day to complete, which is the same time it takes for Tom Nook to build a new house with a new roof color.
In the Animal Crossing, all paint colors cost 800 Bells. All of them are available to purchase in Nookway and Nookington’s. Aside from that, the players are also able to ask a villager to paint their house when they are asked if they want to repaint. Besides, they can also paint their house by asking Wisp after catching 5 spirits for him. Not only that, a few villagers will also paint the roof of the players randomly when they are included in the talk. However, this kind of thing is a bit rare.
Unlike in Animal Crossing, each paint color costs 980 Bells in the Animal Crossing Wild World. To be able to change the color of the roof, the players only have an option, which is to go to the Nookington’s and buy paint there. Actually, there is another way, which is by paying off the mortgage and specifying a color with Tom Nook when prompted. In this title, do not expect the villagers to offer to repaint because it will not happen. At the beginning of the game, the color of the roof is determined by the favorite color that is chosen on the DS system.
In the Animal Crossing City Folk, the method to get the paint is the same as the one in Animal Crossing Wild World. However, there is an exception, which is when the player upgrades to Nook ‘n’ Go, one color of the paint will be sold once a day. Take note that the same thing goes for upgrading to Nookway and Nookington’s.
In the Animal Crossing New Leaf, the player will be asked by Tom Nook if they want to build their house. It happens after paying down the payment. If they say yes, they will be given a chance to pick the colors, which include red, yellow, green, and blue. When the process of building the house is done, they are able to go into Nook’s Homes and change the color and the pattern of the roof with the exception if the player is expanding their house. The color of the roof will be changed the next day.
