NeoHomes have become a very popular aspect of NeoPets,
and so I think it's necessary for people to know what to do or not do.
First, you should think about what you want your home
to look like. You may want to sketch it out on a piece of paper to avoid
making a mistake with doors and placement, and therefore wasting money.
You should also consider your budget. Donít buy a house in Faerieland,
realize you have very few NPs left and build your house out of bamboo!
If you have 30,000 points or less, I would suggest buying some land in
Neopia Central or Mystery Island. If you have more, go ahead and do what
Looks are a big thing. You shouldnít have a big jumbled
mess with tons of rooms, made from just about everything there is, or
another design that isnít very logical. People decide a lot of things
from your NeoHome, and I bet you wonít get that second position in a private
guild for rich people if you have a two room straw hut. Common sense,
Furniture. Everyone wants it, and boy is it expensive.
Iíve spent about 20,000 NP on furniture for two rooms alone. Now, donít
be whining because you donít have enough money for that heart shaped bed.
Dung and stone furniture (although very disgusting and uncivilized) is
available for prices as low as 50 NP. I wouldnít recommend it, but if
youíre desperate, or going for that Tyrannian theme, it could be done.
No one likes an empty house, so even if itís only a couple chairs and
a table, you should try to put furniture in every room.
I just love looking at themed houses. A bamboo room could
contain Mystery Island furniture. A house in Faerieland could be made
of cloud. Or you could theme individual rooms, and put a set of tiger
furniture in one room, and Kauvara in the next. It definitely contributes
to the looks factor, and people will comment on how nice your house is.
I would definitely recommend it.
Extensions are great, but only if you are willing to
upgrade several times. A transparentshield castle is a nice start, but
with ripped wallpaper and clanking cans? I think not. Extensions are one
of the first things that is seen when a user looks you up, so donít leave
dirt and weeds for your carpet; upgrade! If you are on the poor side,
you should raise them three to five times for some moderate additions.
The richer class might want to go all the way to the top for a really
And as always, think of your pet(s), and never do anything
that could jeopardize their happiness. ďMommy/Daddy, the rain is coming
through, and the cardboardís starting to smell funny,Ē should be something
an owner should never hear!
