The Guide of ACNH DLC Unlocks

In ACNH DLC, you are going to be tasked with decorating vacation homes with some techniques. Those techniques such as adding partitions, polishing, and making countertops. Unlock as you decorate more homes, and eventually you are able to use those techniques back on your main island. Well, this page will explain how to unlock those various techniques and how many homes you must fix to get them all.

When you are starting Happy Home Paradise, you will not have the arsenal of new housing techniques available. You will need to design homes to unlock the new techniques and features, like having two floors or polishing the furniture to make it shiny. Do not worry, the features keep unlocking in Happy Home Paradise until you create 30 different homes. After you unlock a new remodelling technique, then you are able to use them in your own home back on your island and finally in your villager’s houses back home.
