Decorating Your House in Starfield: A Guide

Once you have your own house in Starfield, you can unleash your creativity and decorate it to your heart’s desire. However, decorating in Starfield is not immediately intuitive, so we have put together a comprehensive guide to help you navigate the process.

Getting a House in Starfield

If you don’t already own a house, don’t worry! We have guides available that can assist you in acquiring a house in either New Atlantis or Akila City. Once you own a house, you’re ready to start decorating.

The Housing Editor System

In Starfield, there is an in-house editor system specifically designed for decorating your house. This editor system offers a variety of furnishings and utility stations for you to choose from. You can find the activation button for the housing editor next to the front door of your chosen house.

The housing editor system is straightforward to use. It provides categories for crafting and upgrade stations, decorations, and terminals for easy access to the Mission Board and Bounty clearing. You can place items wherever the editor allows and adjust their position and rotation to achieve your desired look. Placing items does have a small resource cost, but it’s not overly demanding. You can easily furnish a basic room with the resources you already have.

One important feature of the housing editor is the cycle option, which allows you to choose from various variations of certain items. While the item diversity is limited, there doesn’t appear to be a budget restriction, so feel free to fill your house with as many items as you desire.

What sets Starfield apart is its “persistent universe.” Any changes you make to the environment, including your house furnishings, will remain permanent. This opens up endless possibilities for creative and immersive home decoration.

Placing Items in Starfield

To place items in Starfield, you’ll need to use the “hold” function, which can be accessed by holding the “take” button or key instead of clicking it. This will give you direct control over the item and allow you to place it exactly where you want.

Now that you know how to decorate your house in Starfield, unleash your imagination and transform your house into a personalized sanctuary. Keep an eye out for mods that expand the available item pool beyond Bethesda’s offerings. We’ll be sure to provide coverage on those as well.
