10. ACNH CottageCore – Island Market

Create a cozy space on your island for your visitors to swap items, bells, and clothing for a nifty aesthetic. This creator has made clever use of the in-game log benches and cardboard boxes to create a flea market appeal. The market signs are custom designs with a creator code you can find on our ACNH signs page.

Some of the patterns used on the stalls in this image are also custom. You can find some amazing ACNH stall patterns in our guide on creating nifty giveaway areas on your island.

9. ACNH Island Barn

Give your ACNH island an amazing Barn aesthetic with these creator codes. The in-game hay bales, barrels, and barbed wire fence really set off this look. Mix that with dirt and grass and the brick silos and you’ve got a real horse barn going on. One good addition might be the duck decoys that people use to create ponds.

8. CottageCore Flower Garden

This gorgeous cottagecore-inspired flower garden makes great use of in-game items and custom patterns to create a unique look. Much of the game’s indoor shrubbery and plants feature in a garden with a custom brick floor pattern. A mushroom table, bamboo bench, and a log bench lend a rustic feel to this cottagecore garden.

7. ACNH CottageCore – Old-Fashioned Laundry

Listen, when you moved to the island and decided to adopt the rustic way of life, you didn’t bring no stinkin’ washing machine with you. Instead, you’ve got a few buckets, barrels, and washtubs to get all your laundry looking spiffy. Stretching the area out by a river is a nice touch for those who want the pioneer aesthetic on their island.

Most everything featured in this screenshot is in the game already. If you want the cute little board path, be sure to check out our ACNH path patterns article.
