Once placed, items in the Room of Requirement can then be customized further, and you can change their color, style, size, position, and location. This applies to both cosmetics and gameplay-focused utilities.

Any alterations or conjurings are done in-game and not through a menu. You’ll see your character wave their wand around to place items that will then appear in real-time.

How to Conjure New Furniture & Decorations in Hogwarts Legacy

To conjure furniture, equipment, or decorations, you must be in the Room of Requirement. You’ll need to select from your conjuration recipes which item you wish to conjure.

Conjuring a new piece of furniture, equipment, or decoration will cost you some resources. However, once placed, it can have its style (color or pattern, for example) altered for no additional cost.

Of course, if you want to customize your Room of Requirement on the go, don’t worry. There’s a new way to play Hogwarts Legacy in handheld mode without sacrificing visual quality!

If you’re low on resources, you can also remove any item and receive a small number of the type of resource used to conjure it in return.
