You can talk to Tom Nook & Isabelle
Tom Nook is one of the first friendly faces you meet on your island. He’s also a wealth of knowledge! You can visit him any time, day or night, in Resident Services. You can ask him about paying off your home loan for the chance to upgrade and customize with more rooms, more styles, and more colors. Once the Resident Services tent has been upgraded to a building, you can talk to Isabelle about changing the town tune and town flag. She can also suggest ways to improve your island’s star rating, like pulling weeds and planting flowers.
You can earn Nook Miles
Tom Nook offers an excellent rewards program known as Nook Miles. You can earn Nook Miles by completing challenges like catching fish, finding your first fossil, and posting a note on the island’s bulletin board. You can even earn miles by signing up for the rewards program in the first place! To redeem miles, you can visit the Nook Stop terminal in Resident Services. The Nook Miles you earn can be exchanged for additional features (such as roomier pockets), recipes, exclusive items, and tickets to go on mystery tours—things that Bells just can’t buy.
You can landscape and garden
Each island has its own type of flower and fruit tree. By planting different types of seeds, saplings, or fruit, you can add to the beauty of your island (which can help improve the island rating!). You can collect different breeds of flowers and fruit from friends’ islands or you can buy seeds and saplings from Leif when he visits your island. Then you can plant the fruit on your own island to grow an orchard of apples, cherries, coconuts, and more. To create hybrid colors, you can plant flowers of the same type but certain colors in a checkerboard pattern. Watering your flowers daily and giving them room to grow are two ways to increase your chances of growing these beautiful hybrid flowers.
You can decorate your home
Each weekend, the Happy Home Academy will rank your interior-design skills. If you score big on the evaluation, you may earn cool rewards, including exclusive plaques to hang on your wall. Coordinating colors, matching furniture styles, and putting up decorations are all ways to help boost your score. Some items can be customized with different colors, patterns, or even your own custom-made designs. You can check out the Custom Designs app on your NookPhone for more details!
You can change the look of your island
With the in-game Island Designer app, you can really let your imagination run wild! Once unlocked, you can use this app to make different types of paths for residents to walk along or change the ground covering for a park area. You can use Nook Miles to unlock additional paths, as well as permits to build cliffs and create waterfalls, rivers, and ponds. Tom Nook can arrange for bridges and inclines to help get around your island—for a few Bells, of course.
