Over time, you will run out of space in Animal Crossing New Horizons; luckily, there are a few ways to expand your storage space. 

How to increase storage in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To get more storage in Animal Crossing New Horizons, you will need to upgrade your house; this can be done by speaking to Tom Nook over at resident services and choosing the expand my home dialogue option. However, you will need at least 500k bells to be able to expand your storage space; you will also need a fully upgraded house that includes the following below. 

  • Basement
  • Three first floor rooms
  • One upstairs room
  • Fully paid off home debt

Once you have all of the above built and paid off, you will then be able to speak to Tom Nook and choose the dialogue option to unlock more storage space. If you select the expand my home option, your house's previous max storage space of 1600 will increase by 800 to 2400.  That said if you have the required amount to pay for the expansion, pay for it, and you will have to wait one in-game day for the upgrade to appear on your house.
