Housing Decoration is an upcoming feature to Elder Scrolls Online, due to be implemented with Player Housing in February 2017.


Housing Decoration Overview

No two player-decorated home interiors will be identical in Homestead. You can put your own personal touch on every home you own by crafting or buying furniture and decorations, and you can place them wherever you like with the game's new Housing Editor. Some homes even have outdoor spaces that you can decorate! Let your imagination run free and create a place to call your own like no other in Tamriel.

You will be able to either craft or buy new furniture and decorations for your house and can use the housing editor to move them all around. Some homes will feature outdoor real estate that can be further customized. There will be over 2,000 decorative items running the range from tables and chairs to books and plants.  You can fill your home with furnishings that include (but are not limited to) tables and chairs, chests, armoires, beds, bars, and counters. Once your furniture is in place, you can put the finishing touches on your home with decorative items such as books, food, barrels, paintings, light fixtures, plants, trees, and more. The possibilities are limitless.

  • Crafting stations
  • Target skeletons for rotation practice
  • Light fixtures
  • Pets
  • Assistants
  • Mounts

Using the Housing Editor

Once you obtain a decoration, you can use the housing editor to move them all around. Some homes will feature outdoor real estate that can be further customized.

The housing editor contains multiple tabs and categories for ease of asset selection.

  • The Place tab allows you to place furnishings and collectibles from a categorized list of available options.
  • The Purchase tab contains a large list of furnishings available for a la carte crown purchase.
    • Nearly every item in the Purchase tab is also available via crafting or from other in-game sources with a few exceptions for items found exclusively in Crown Store bundles.
  • In addition to directly selecting any placed items in editor mode, you may also retrieve placed furnishings from a list of placed items in the Retrieve tab of the editor, without needing to locate them in the home.
  • You can also search each tab by item name to further filter your results.

You will also be able to grant trusted friends permission to decorate existing placed items in your home (they cannot add or remove items from your home), and allow those who are not on your friends list or in your guilds to visit and/or decorate your home by adding them as a “Visitor” or “Decorator” in your House Settings.

Furniture Crafting is also another announced feature. It will enable players to create their own custom furnishings for their dwellings, presumably with usage of regular crafting materials and special motifs for styles.


Storage Furnishings

Available since Dragon Bones DLC.

These account-wide items allow you to store 30 or 60 items per collectible, depending on the size. You can acquire four 30-slot coffers and four 60-slot chests, for a combined total of up to 360 storage slots. All four coffers share the same visual appearance, but each has a unique name and can be nicknamed for easy organization. Chests work the same way, with their own shared appearance.

  • To use a storage furnishing, first travel to your home and navigate to the new Storage section of the Services category of the Housing Editor to place your collectible. Once you’ve placed a storage furnishing, you can use it at any time to deposit or withdraw items from that particular collectible. Each one has its own storage, which is separate from all other item storage.
    • Unlike bank storage, ingredients stored in chests and coffers will not be used when crafting, and stored equipment will not appear in deconstruction, research, or upgrade windows at Crafting Stations.
  • Since these are collectibles, you can place each one in as many homes as you like, and will see the same items regardless of which home you open that particular chest or coffer in.
  • You can purchase storage coffers and chests from the Mastercraft Mediator, the Crown Store, or from Tel Var Merchants. You can also earn a storage coffer from the Level Up Advisor (detailed below) upon reaching level 18, if you have not already purchased it.

      Are 'Homes' purchased freehold or leasing; in other words will Housing be upgradeable( build-upon; extensions...) , and should the exterior, of some houses, be changeable; together, with future in-mind, will Houses in specific locations be removed, relocated...

        Is it possible to store inventory items( given that items binding-on-use being an exception), such as apparel, weapons, food... Will this also extend to allow transfer of plus-membership storage, especially if cancelled?

        Will this also allow siege-weaponry storage in larger housing?

        Inclusive with Guild-items, maybe?

          Your instructions would be more helpful if it included instructions on how to enter the housing editor once you're in your home.
