List of Contents
|Ways to Get More HHA Points
(Tap to jump to the Section!)
|1||Expand Your House|
|2||Basic Living Necessities|
|3||Hang Furniture on Walls|
|4||Decorate with Furniture Series|
|5||Use Furniture Sets|
|6||Use Furniture with Matching Colors|
|7||Some Furniture Give Bonus Points|
|8||Decorate with Feng Shui in Mind|
If you expand you house, you get more space to put Furniture in, increasing the amount of points you can get. For anyone wishing to aim for Happy Home Academy rewards, we recommend first having at least 3 rooms.
First and foremost you'll want to make sure all the basic living necessities are covered. There are 4 pre-determined living necessities: a chair, a table, a dresser or wardrobe, and a bed.
They don't need to all be in the same room, but make sure you have at least one of each.
As explained further below, it's recommended to use Furniture of the same Series and matching colors as much as possible, especially when you first start out since it's an easy way to earn points.
Points will be added or reduced depending on whether you have Wall-Mounted items or not. Make Furniture like Clocks and hang them on the walls for an easy boost.
You can get more points by using Furniture from the same Series. The Bunny Day Event currently happening is a great way to get a complete Furniture Series, so we recommend playing the time-limited event and gathering the materials to craft the Bunny Day DIY items!
A Furniture set is a set of Furniture belonging to the same genre or category. This can for example be Apple or Guitar, so you can use DIY to make great Furniture sets for high HHA scores.
Using a lot of Furniture with the same color will get you a higher score.
You can change the color of Furniture with DIY Customization to make all your furniture match, it'll still be counted as the same color.
Some Furniture give additional Bonus points when placed. These include trophies from HHA and pictures of Villagers, so make sure to put them up if you have any!
|Feng Shui Areas|
|Enlarge 4×4||Enlarge 6×6||Enlarge 8×8|
Note: The above images are based on the system in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Feng Shui, a system where furniture and flowers of a certain color are placed in a certain place of your room, greatly affects the score of a room. The main colors are red, yellow, and green, but there are also areas where two colors are used.
In the areas where two colors are used, you can place Furniture of either color without getting point deductions, but you earn the most by placing Furniture that is a combination of both colors without getting a point deduction.
Only parts of the room are affected by Feng Shui, so it's better to use as many small pieces of Furniture as possible to rack up points! Items placed on top of tables and dressers also count, so a good strategy is placing many small items on top of Furniture with surfaces.
|Rank S||Above 50,000 Points|
|Rank A||Above 40,000 Points|
|Rank B||Below 39,999 Points|
Ranks are determined by the amount of points you have, and you get a Letter about your score after points have been added or deducted.
|Point Reduction Causes|
There is a risk of losing points as well as gaining them. Among the 3 reasons for point deductions listed above, the biggest deduction comes from having Cockroaches, so make sure to get rid of them all!
How to Get Rid of Cockroaches
|Gold HHA Trophy||150,000 Points|
|Silver HHA Trophy||100,000 Points|

|Gold HHA Plaque||50,000 Points|
|Silver HHA Plaque||30,000 Points|
|Bronze HHA Plaque||20,000 Points|
|HHA Pennant||10,000 Points|
After reaching a score of 10,000 points, you start getting rewards from the Happy Home Academy. We currently haven't confirmed rewards for scores above 150,000 points, but our investigation is ongoing!

I have 77k points, but only Rank B. I don’t think Rank works the way you think it does.. I got A rank at 11,000 points..
>>3 I believe you only get one reward a week, so if you change nothing, you'll keep getting rewards until you get the max for your score.
