You can redeem the Nook Miles that you have accumulated to be granted a Pro Decorating License in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
This is a brand new addition that Nintendo has introduced with the game’s free and content-packed 2.0.0 update. You can now redeem 2,500 Nook Miles to order the Pro Decorating License from the Nook Stop multimedia terminal in Resident Services.
The Nook Stop catalogue explains that the Pro Decorating License “allows the creation of accent walls and the ability to install ceiling fixtures.” Once you have chosen to redeem your Nook Miles, you will unlock the license straight away with your character exclaiming that they now have the chance to realise their vision.
If you hadn’t already guessed from the game’s description, the Pro Decorating License is needed to unlock the ability to add an accent wall to your home or hang furniture items – such as lights or other suitable decorations – from the ceiling in a particular room.
How To Create An Accent Wall In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
You will need to hang a different type of wallpaper on one of the walls in a room to create an accent wall. While in Decorating Mode, use right on the d-pad to select the wallpaper and then press the X Button to set up the accent wall.
How To Hang Items From The Ceiling In Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Thanks to the Pro Decorating License, you can hang lighting fixtures and other items from a room’s ceiling. While in Decorating Mode, you will need to press the + Button to swap modes so you can edit ceiling fixtures – it’s the lampshade symbol. You will then be able to choose anything from your pockets or within the room to place on the ceiling.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
