The much-anticipated Elder Scrolls Online Gold Road finally released today on PC and Mac! In the new Chapter, you’ll have more opportunities to get a new free manor and decorate it. But many first-time Tamriel Homeowners are still wondering: what can a house do, exactly?

There are many benefits to owning a house, but the most obvious use is to decorate it! If you already love customizing items in RPGs, then you’ll have a ton of fun with Housing system. In this guide, we’ll go over where to get furniture, as well as some decorating tips.

Elder Scrolls Online: How To Customize Your Own House To The Maximum In Gold Road Chapter?

Benefits Of Owning A House

Before we get started, let’s take a look at the beneficial uses of owning a house.

Fast Travel

Houses can act as fast travel locations. Any house you own can act as a Wayshrine, which you can travel to for free from anywhere using the world map. You can even choose to spawn inside or outside a house if you just want to get into town quickly.

Every house you own, and the furniture you place in it, is shared among all characters on your account, meaning you can own as many houses as you want. Once you own a house, it’s added to your collection, so you can even go to it with a list of houses you’ve collected!

Improve Social Interaction

There are also a lot of social elements for housing. For those who enjoy the social aspect of the game or are creative, the options are endless, such as building Mazes, Escape Rooms or Puzzles. There are even guilds dedicated to housing, which encourage you through competitions and creativity, and give you the opportunity to earn extra ESO Gold during the decoration process.

In order to invite others to your house, make sure you check your permissions and enable certain guilds or friends as guests. Houses are locked by default.

Once permissions are unlocked, you can send a direct link to your house via mail or text chat.

You can also set a house as your Primary Residence. This way, people with the appropriate permissions can visit the house using your name on the social menu, regardless of your online status. However, please note that you can only have 1 Primary Residence.

If you want to decorate one of your houses with a friend, or even hire someone to decorate a house for you, you can enable the decorator rights for certain people.

You need to place the furniture, but they can move every piece of furniture. Be careful not to grant full decorator rights to anyone you don’t fully trust. No one can take your furniture, but they can destroy what you’ve built or make it hard to find.

If this does happen, or you just can’t find a piece of furniture, you can use Retrieve menu to mark its location and find it, or just put it back in your inventory.

Storage Coffers & Chests Available

One of the best reasons to have an in-game house is to have a place to place and use Storage Coffers and Storage Chests. There are 4 large chests and 4 small coffers available. Each large chest can hold 60 items, and the small coffer can hold 30 items, which is equivalent to adding 360 inventory slots to your account.

These Storage Chests are added to your collection as you unlock them, so all of your characters can use them, and you can place them in multiple houses at the same time.

You’ll unlock one coffer from Level Up Advisor after reaching level 18, and the rest can be redeemed with Master Crafting Writ Vouchers, Tel Var in Imperial City, or with Crowns. However, I would recommend using the in-game method.

You can name containers to help categorize items. I use 3 chests to store survey maps and label them for quick storage and categorization. These chests, and the items you put in them, are only accessible to you.

Crafting Tables

You can also place each Crafting Table in your home. Of course, using Master Crafting Writ Vouchers, or mining through Antiquities, is also a good way to get them.

You can go a step further and try Attunable Crafting Tables. This can be used at Overland Set crafting locations to add nearby set bonuses to a crafting table and bring them home.

This is especially useful if you want to access sets from DLC areas that you can’t normally access. Assuming you have temporary access to High Isle through ESO Plus trial, you can use these Attunable Tables to replicate Order’s Wrath crafting stations, and you can still craft the set bonus after the trial ends.

Houseguests

Houseguests are collectible furniture that can be placed in all of your homes. Some of these can be obtained from Crown Store, but others can be obtained in-game.

Since they are account-wide collectibles, they can be placed in multiple houses at once, and all of your visitors can talk to them. You can place them on a path if you want to make your home feel more lived in. You can even decorate the house with your mounts and pets.

Merchants, bankers and deconstruction assistants can also be added to your house for everyone to use. All of these have been Crown items so far, but they are definitely worth getting if you have Crown.

How To Get More Furniture?

Now that we’ve gone over the useful uses of a house, let’s get back to decorating. Furniture and decorations can come from many places, but as always, there is a Crown option under Purchase tab in Housing Editor.

Crown Option

If you do use Crown option, it’s important to understand that these items are tied to your account. If you use a Crown to acquire an already decorated house, those furniture items will also be tied.

This tab contains over 5000 pieces of furniture in the game. Even if you don’t plan on acquiring anything with a Crown, it can be a useful tool to help you determine exactly what furniture style and items you’re looking for.

ESO Plus Benefits

Also note that as part of ESO Plus your furniture limits are doubled, but if you fully renovate your house and lose your membership, the items you placed will stay where you left them.

However, if you pick up and move an item after your membership ends, you won’t be able to place it again without increasing your furniture limits. As an ESO Plus member, you can expect to get a free piece of furniture in Crown Store every month to add to your collection.

Antiquity Furnishings

If you have access to Greymoor, Antiquity system is worth upgrading to get mythic items, and you can also mine a lot of wonderful furniture from leads.

It’s important to note that furniture obtained through Scrying is bound when picked up, so you can’t sell them to other players. But there’s a lot of cool and sometimes large furniture here.

Crafting Furniture

You can craft new furniture by acquiring Furniture Plans, and making items yourself using your existing crafting skills and crafting tables.

Furniture Plans can be found on chests, desks, backpacks, wardrobes, cabinets, trunks, nightstands, and urns. Different areas can drop different plans.

You can also get plans and furniture from daily quests in each area, fishing, or running Infinite Archive.

Of course, don’t forget to check Guild Traders. Other players may be selling plans and furniture you didn’t even know existed.

While the cooldown for finding Furniture Plans has never been confirmed, the community believes that there is a cooldown window of up to 30 minutes after picking up a purple plan, during which you can’t pick up another one.

How To Decorate Your House?

Once you enter a house and enter build mode, you can place furniture from your inventory, house storage chests, collection and bank.

Lock Position

You can lock their position so that they automatically snap to surfaces, or move and place them freely.

Link Items

With free placement, you can even stack items together to build custom furniture. When you stack furniture on top of each other, it may seem cumbersome to move each item, but you can link their positions together to move them as one. You can choose an item as a parent, such as a table, and then link everything on the table together.

Block Off Unfinished Areas

You can also block off areas of your house that are not yet finished using wall or rock furnishings. Since small furnishing limits in extensive areas, it is also beneficial to block off areas you don’t want to decorate, so that you can invest the vast majority of your ESO Gold budget in areas you care about.

Use Furniture In Different Ways

Conversely, you can use stairs and floors to access areas of your house that you wouldn’t normally go to. You can even place items in the scenery around your house if you want to improve your vision.

You can also flip furniture to use it in different ways, such as the underside of these Coldharbour rocks with a void effect, or the underside of Morrowind table map.

Final Thoughts

Houses are one of the most customizable parts of ESO Gold Road. There is no right or wrong way to decorate, and the options are endless. I hope this guide has given you some new house ideas, long-term goals worth working towards, or just helped you see the benefits of using them. Good luck!
