The beauty of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, like most other games in the series, is in the decorating possibilities. With plenty of room on your island to shape it into the most beautiful and unique representation of you, it’s no wonder players have been raving about ACNH for the past three years.
But unless you’re a veteran at the game, you probably won’t have any inspiration for decorating your bathroom at the start. Although it doesn’t contribute to your island’s overall rating, it’s not a very pleasant feeling to walk into your ACNH home and see it almost completely empty.
That’s why decorating your ACNH home can be one of the most relaxing and useful things you can do in the game. With that in mind, there’s no better place to start than in the bathroom. And if you don’t have any ACNH bathroom ideas, worry not! We’ve put together a list of ideas that may help you in your home-decorating journey. Let’s review!
How to create ACNH Bathroom Ideas?
Maybe you don’t want to see any premade ACNH bathroom ideas and would just prefer to learn how to create your own ideas. Well, whether they’re bathroom, ACNH campsite ideas, or any other project you have in mind, we’ve got you.
Of course, the first and foremost question should pertain to what kind of aesthetic you’re going for in your entire home. Do you want to keep that same aesthetic in your bathroom or do you want it to stand out with something completely new? Once you’ve decided this, you’re ready to move on.
Depending on the aesthetic you’ve chosen, your next step is to watch out for items that match it. For example, if you’re looking for a feminine style in your bathroom, only buy and collect furniture that is pink or otherwise gives off a feminine vibe. Make sure to check how each item corresponds with the rest of your furniture so the styles don’t clash. This is how you achieve harmony while creating ACNH bathroom ideas.
If you’re wondering where you can get furniture, take a look at the list below for some ideas:
Of course, there are plenty more ways you can get furniture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. For example, you can also shake two random trees on your island which will drop a furniture item for you. Be careful, though, as you may also end up with other, less pleasant surprises such as wasps! There are many more secrets like these that you can encounter across the island.
If you have any friends who are willing to share, they can also mail you furniture, recipes, and other items! This can be very helpful if you don’t already have the piece of furniture or recipe they’re offering.

- Luxury Spa
- Vine and Jungle-view Bathroom
- Teal Bathroom

However, these bathroom ideas may take a lot of work to envision with just their titles. For that reason, we’ve taken inspiration from the many amazing players and creators in ACNH who have already tried these ideas out. Let’s find the perfect ACNH bathroom ideas for you!
#13 Cherry Blossom Bathroom
The first idea on our list is the cherry blossom bathroom. This is a stunning build for anyone who loves cherry blossoms and has an abundance of them following the coming of spring in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This bathroom idea is not hard to follow up on as it contains pretty basic elements.
However, the centerpieces for this build should be the cherry blossom bonsai and the cherry blossom branches. Of course, this depends on if you have these recipes or not. You’ll need to pop as many balloons as you can during Cherry Blossom season to have a chance at obtaining the recipes for these two items.
Once you’ve collected the recipes and crafted them, all that’s left is to match them to other pieces in your bathroom. This ACNH creator has decided to pair it with stylish wooden floors and simple bathroom elements such as a bathtub, sink, and even a washing machine. Voila, you have one of the best ACNH bathroom ideas out there!
#12 Girly Bathroom
More often than not, you’ll associate the adjective “girly” with the color pink. If you’re considering this type of aesthetic, don’t worry. This is one of the easiest ACNH bathroom ideas to execute.
All it really requires is pink furniture. You can get pretty much any regular piece of furniture and customize it on the workbench. Of course, you’ll have to make sure it’s customizable. It’s important to know that the palette for each piece of furniture is predetermined so you won’t have too much freedom there.
If you’re looking for other elements you can pair with your pink furniture, look for light and happy decorations such as hearts and stars. The build in this picture has small starry banners and other cute details that really fit the girly bathroom aesthetic. Of course, the basic bathroom elements such as a bathtub and toilet are still there. It goes without saying that this is the base for all ACNH bathroom ideas out there.
#11 Sleek Bathroom
Some may equate the sleek style with the modern bathroom style, and they wouldn’t be too wrong about it. A sleek bathroom combines black and white elements with wood to create a cozy but modern contrasting look. The bars between the bathtub and the rest of the bathroom provide a great way to separate the two areas.
Of course, all these design choices take inspiration from real-life bathrooms that have similar designs. With this, Animal Crossing: New Horizons also becomes a game where players can decorate their in-game home just as they would their real home.
As with any other build, this sleek bathroom also requires some small details that will help the space come to life. The addition of simple plants and succulents is a great choice, and there’s even a reed diffuser that ensures we can already imagine how nice and clean this bathroom smells!
#10 Mermaid Bathroom
A mermaid bathroom is something pretty much every ACNH player has wanted at some point in their lives. This bathroom idea adds a lot of personality to the space and makes the players and their guests feel at home.
To achieve the mermaid bathroom aesthetic, you have to focus on ocean elements. For example, having a starfish-shaped rug can do wonders for creating that vibe. That’s why it’s a good thing the mermaid set exists in ACNH. If you haven’t found enough satisfying furniture in this set, you can also look for the shell set.
Keep in mind that there is no bathroom furniture in the mermaid set. By that we mean you won’t be able to craft a mermaid toilet or a mermaid bathtub to put in your bathroom. However, utilizing the mermaid flooring, wall, screen, shelf, rug, and more will help you out.
#9 Japanese Bathroom
If you’re thinking of Japanese ACNH bathroom ideas, you should only have one thing on your mind. That thing is bamboo. Lots and lots of bamboo. There is no specific way to obtain all the bamboo furniture recipes in the game. You’ll have to rely on RNG to get the items you need for your bathroom.
Still, the bamboo furniture series does a great job of providing that oriental vibe many players look for when creating Japanese bathrooms. The earthy tones you can get from smoke-cured and dried bamboo variations are the best for this type of build.
Other than that, you can easily replace the tiled floors from the picture with some wooden floors to bring home that feeling of a Japanese bathroom. If you specifically want to make it a Japanese bathroom, we recommend utilizing bathtubs, bathroom sinks, and other bathroom elements.
#8 Japanese Spa Bathroom
However, if you want to create a Japanese spa, the process is a bit different. In Japan, these bathing facilities are called onsen. Although these are also hot springs, the term also refers to the buildings where people can come and enjoy the water.
To create a Japanese spa bathroom in Animal Crossing: New Horizons you’ll definitely need the cypress bathtub furniture item. As you can see in the picture, this item is customizable and creates a great onsen aesthetic. If you don’t like the cypress bathtub, though, you’re in luck. You can replace it with a bathtub with yuzu, which is available in Nook Shopping during the Winter Solstice seasonal event.
While you can add a toilet and bathroom sink to the build, you can also leave it out if you prefer. However, it’s imperative that you add the cloud flooring. You can buy it from Saharah for 3,000 Bells. If you combine it with some custom rugs that look like wood flooring, you can achieve the perfect steam effect that will make your visitors truly feel like they’re in a Japanese spa!
#7 Luxury Spa
If you prefer a more modern and luxurious feel over the traditional Japanese spa, the luxury spa is one of the best ACNH bathroom ideas you can get! This aesthetic is easy to achieve with the use of the whirlpool bath which you can get from Nook’s Cranny.
However, this is one of the more expensive builds, too. The whirlpool bath itself will cost you 130,000 Bells. If you’re just starting out in the game and don’t know how to make money yet, this will be a tough purchase for you.
Combine the whirlpool bath with a few regular bathtubs, a sauna heater, and a music player to encapsulate the vibe of a luxury spa. We can already imagine relaxing in the warm bathtub while listening to some lo-fi or other chill music after a long day.
Of course, no spa is complete without some decorations. You’ll want to place a few plants, a reed diffuser, and maybe even a TV to give your guests the ultimate luxury spa experience!
#6 Vine and Jungle-view Bathroom
If you’re looking for the best ACNH bathroom ideas that provide a natural aesthetic to your bathroom, this vine and jungle-view bathroom is the perfect fit. This specific build’s visualization is all thanks to Thorin_ACNH and some custom designs from nessie_acnh.
The vine garlands on the ceiling create a nice 3D effect, making it seem as though the jungle is a part of the room itself. On the other hand, the jungle window is a custom design we can thank nessie_acnh for. The design makes it feel as though the bathroom has a great view of the jungle, allowing the players and guests to relax in the cypress bathtubs.
There’s not much else to go off of in Thorin_ACNH’s build, as we can’t see the bathroom sink or a toilet anywhere. However, you’ll be just fine if you stick to brown furniture and earthy tones throughout the entire bathroom.
#5 Teal Bathroom
Up next on our list of ACNH bathroom ideas is the teal bathroom. Very few colors can emulate the feeling of relaxation and peace like the color teal. Whether this is because it may remind some of the calming ocean or because it’s in the blue family, we don’t know. However, you can’t go wrong by creating a teal bathroom in your ACNH home.
Of course, the main selling point of this aesthetic is the color. This is why you’ll want to customize nearly every piece of furniture to that color. However, not every piece of furniture will have a blue variation. You’ll need to do your research on all the furniture that will have this particular shade of blue if you don’t want to waste any Bells.
Once again, the cloud flooring comes into play in yet another build. The steam effect it can create when placed in bathrooms is immaculate and definitely deserving of mention.
#4 Plant Lover’s Bathroom
If you’re a plant lover looking for some ACNH bathroom ideas, you’re in the right place. This plant lover’s bathroom will make you boot up your game to find all these decorations immediately!
While the various plants we’ve seen in other builds were mainly just small details, here they are the centerpiece! To achieve the plant lover’s bathroom aesthetic, you’ll want to go for any sort of plant-shaped or plant-resembling piece of furniture you can get your hands on.
Of course, you’ll need to account for the standard bathroom equipment. Although we can’t see a toilet in this picture, you can always add your own somewhere in the bathroom. Once you’ve done that, you can relax and enjoy a nice long bath with your favorite green pets.
#3 Butterfly Bathroom
Among all the ACNH bathroom ideas we’ve discussed so far, the butterfly bathroom is probably the rarest one. This interesting and creative build incorporates an element that we don’t normally associate with bathrooms, and that’s butterflies.
For that reason, you may think the butterfly bathroom is hard to recreate. However, all it really takes is obtaining the butterflies wall from Flick. To do that, you’ll have to win the Bug-Off!
Other than that, you can just decorate the rest of the bathroom the way you want it to look. Naturally, it’s preferable that these furniture items somehow match the butterflies. Your best bet is to use wooden items such as the cypress bathtub as you can see in the picture above. If you can find some custom designs that also feature butterflies you can utilize these decorations to spice up your ACNH butterfly bathroom!
#2 Simple Bathroom
Most of the other ACNH bathroom ideas we’ve seen so far have had a lot of elements to them. However, a simple bathroom in Animal Crossing: New Horizons should be one that makes the most out of a few items.
Realistically, you only need a bathtub, bathroom sink, and toilet in your bathroom. However, this wouldn’t look very aesthetically pleasing due to how bland the space would look. For that reason, you’re going to need some basic decorations such as a few towels, a screen that separates the toilet from the rest of the bathroom, and a toilet brush.
This ACNH bathroom design isn’t too complicated to execute, and you can make changes as you see fit. This also means you can completely change up the colors to ones that better fit the color scheme of your home and showcase your personality!
#1 Royal Bathroom
Our final entry on the list of amazing ACNH bathroom ideas is the royal bathroom! Although you may also call this the pink bathroom, these royal design elements dominate the vibe of the room.
If you want to swap out the colors, you’ll have a few limited choices. Although in the image above we see the pink-crown wall, this wall also comes in the colors black, blue, and brown. Perhaps the blue color would help encapsulate the royal aesthetic a bit better, but you can choose whichever one suits your fancy.
The royal bathroom has pretty basic design elements, though. You can mix and match between whatever type of bathtub or sink you like. This is because the wallpaper will dominate the room anyway. Finish up with fancy decorations such as candles, small statues, and even a harp. Now sit back and enjoy the luxury!
