Customization Kits are items that are exclusive in New Horizons.

These are used to customize furniture and some other items, and can be bought from the Nook’s Cranny for 600 Bells each (3,000 Bells for 5 of them) after the player finishes participating in Tom Nook’s Customization Workshop. The player will also get 50 customization kits after participating the workshop.


To customize an item, go to a DIY Workbench and select "Customize something". Select a valid item to be customized (not every item can be customized). The player must have some customization kits in their inventory in order to customize item.

Different items have different customizing options. For example, some can only have their color changed (e.g. Swinging Bench) while some can have Custom Designs on them (e.g. Corkboard).

Once the player has finished customizing, select "Customize" or press "+". It will go through a similar cutscene as if the player was crafting something but with a different sound effect playing, and the player will get the new customized version of the item. Similarly to crafting items, the player can click A twice to speed up the process.


  • The player is unable to speed up the customizing process when they are doing it in the Customization Workshop, just like crafting.
  • If there are multiple players on an island, they will also have to participate in the Customization Workshop in order to unlock customizing. However, they can still buy customization kits from Nook’s Cranny if the Resident Representative has already completed the workshop.
