How to Change Your Front Door in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To change your front door in Animal Crossing New Horizons you'll need to have built your fifth extension on your house. This is the one that costs a whopping 548,000 Bells. Once you've done this, head to Tom Nook at the Town Hall (more info on that in this guide). Select 'about my home' and then 'customize'. You'll be taken to a screen where you can change a number of things, including the color and style of your front door.

How Much Does it Cost to Change Your Front Door?

All exterior house customizations cost the same price. It'll cost 5,000 Bells to order one set of changes. This means you can change the color of your roof (more on that here), front door and mail box for just 5,000 Bells. Note that one round of changes will take a day, so make sure you change everything you want before committing.
