Learn how to store furniture and other items in your house in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch.
List of Contents
The Winter Update lets you increase the maximum storage capacity of your home from 1,600 to 2,400.
Note that the Expanded Home Storage is only available once you have expanded your house to its maximum size and paid all outstanding loans.
After updating your game to Version 1.6, go to Resident Services. If you already upgraded your house to its maximum size and paid off all your loans, Tom Nook will tell you that he's now offering an Expanded Home Storage upgrade.
Talk to Tom Nook and select "About My Home". A new option called "Expand my storage" will be available to discuss.
Pay 500,000 Bells to expand the storage.
Unlike other home upgrades, Tom Nook can't offer a loan for the expansion. You need to pay for the storage upgrade upfront!
As with all house upgrades, Tom Nook requires the whole day to work on the expansion. The next day, your house's maximum storage capacity will increase to 2,400!
The only requirement to use the Storage feature is to upgrade your tent to a house. You'll need to pay the initial loan of 5,000 Miles to upgrade to a House, so be sure to get started on paying off your loan right away.
How to Get Nook Miles Fast
Select an item from your pockets and choose
Put in Storage.
You can put almost any item in storage, excluding whole trees and flower plants.
Press the Right Arrow button on the D-Pad to open up the storage. The items are sorted by categories which you can cycle through using the L and R buttons.
Selecting the item allows you to put it back in your pockets, or placing the item inside your home when using Decorating Mode.
You can also view the number of items you have, and the max storage size on the lower left part of the strorage screen.
You cannot store items or access your storage from outside your home. Chests and drawers cannot be used to store items, so you can't use it outside your home.
Although, it is possible to drop items on the ground, but we do not recommend that as it decreases your island rating.
Not only does upgrading your house increases the size and number of rooms, it also increases your storage space. Upgrading your house is a pain in the pockets, but it is definitely worth the Bells!

By creating a second character, you can use their house as secondary storage. In addition, using Party Play will allow the leader to access that house storage for an easier way to deliver items!
If there are items that you cannot put in your storage like trees and recipes, you can use trash cans to throw out items. You cannot get Bells in exchange, but it allows you to quickly open up your pocket space so you can pick up more items.List of Trash Cans and Waste Bins
Several items cannot be put in storage, and you will need to do other ways to get them out of your pockets like dropping them on the ground, or throwing them out in a trash can.
