Could we please be allowed to have 20 items in our inn housing?

The NPC's have more items in their rooms than what I'm allowed to have and counting knick-knacks the current 15 is just too little.

    But it’s just a starter home. The limit encourages you to buy bigger homes and in more convenient locations.

    And with ESO+ you’d the limit is upped to 30 — which still feels too little for the larger inn rooms!

    I think the apartments have a furnishing limit of 50/100 while being around the same size as the inn rooms so one of those might suit you better. :)

    Why not up the limit to 40 with ESO+ and 60/120 for apartments?

    Increased item limit of 20/40 or 25/50 for Inn rooms would be great!

    More for Apartments, not sure.
    I have 2 Apartments with 50 items (furnished them before i got eso+), and that already seems enough to me.
    So, 100 items with eso+ seems more fine to me for Apartments.

    It's a starter house, its meant to be a start point.
    Here's a list of all the available houses, requirements to own them and their prices (crowns and/or gold)

    I don’t think that should be a reason for an exceptionally low item limit and would pay Crowns to increase it. I have much larger properties now as well but sometimes you want a small space for your build or character concept.

    Increasing it from 15 to 20 wouldn't break the bank and I'm happy with my little inn room.

    I agree it shouldn't, but you shouldn't have to pay Crowns to increase it, when you can get an apartment for relatively little gold, with over 3x the limit.

    If they want to charge us a bit more gold, for a small increase in furnishing slots, then fair enough, I guess.

    I thought that I would get a response from someone associated with ZOS but I guess not.

    Hmm... maybe I should try out WoW Classic?

    Play whatever you enjoy but I believe that WoW (even two-decade-old WoW) is sub only. If you had ESO+ then you could have 30 regular furnishings in each of your inn rooms — just saying. ;)

    I'd love to have 20/40 or even 25/50 for the inn rooms. But I suspect the limit is so low to encourage players to upgrade to larger homes.

    The problem is the item limit relative to the size of the home. Does an inn room that I wish I could place more items in make me want to buy Psijic Villa (or any other huge notable) so I can bemoan the item limit there? Certainly not. It did contribute to my wanting to buy an apartment (for gold) so that I could have a higher item limit in a small space. That’s not to say that I haven’t also bought a classic house and larger piece of land, but that was not the reason.

    I suspect that the item limit on for inn rooms may be so low because they are free and thus everyone will have them and so this may reduce the server load (I have no idea about the technical side so perhaps I’m totally wrong). If something like this is the case, it would be great if we could pay to increase the item limit as then it would not be something everyone had (or would bring in enough revenue to be worth it).

    You won't get a response here, but they do read it, apparently.

    I'm not saying it would encourage someone to go all out and buy one of the monstrosities, but even an apartment or small home, which gets them spending gold and perhaps crowns on stuff to decorate them with. The small cap for the inn rooms is to get people started with something free, but free will necessarily be small, as I still think they do want to get players out of those into larger ones and thus to start spending gold/time/crowns on housing.

    Yes, they're small because they are free, but I would argue that they are free to get players into housing. Sure, some won't care beyond having the free inn rooms, but giving players a free, small, sample can be the impetus to get into housing. And, they don't want to give someone a free, large, sample. No, just a free, small taste to whet their appetite. They clearly want players to move up, even if only to an apartment, which, as you pointed out can be smaller than some of the free inn rooms - but they have 50/100 slots to fill, thus starting players on their housing journey.

    ETA: I'm mostly using small and large to refer to the item limit, not to the size of the house itself.

    Yes, I'm sure that is the essential idea of them, but we are arguing that it is a flawed idea, given the circumstances.

    This "free sample" concept might make some sort of sense for the original free rooms, as they are all either tiny, or too small to require a higher furnishing limit.

    But, the subsequent three are all either very generous, or quite generous, in size.

    So, all those three do is to warn you, in advance, that the plague of housing, in this game, is its too-low furnishing limits for the sizes of the homes.

    Actually, not all homes (especially not all medium/large homes) suffer from that plague, but if you were going off the example one of these rooms, you might assume they did.

    Not only that, but tiny rooms, like Mara's, are hard to decorate at all; so, are less a sample of what is to come, but are more a challenge, with only one right answer.

    Not many people will have high hopes for housing when either confronted with a tiny room with a generous limit, or a large room with a restrictive one.

    Not only that, but (as I said previously) these rooms are mostly not in places with alternative houses, or apartments.

    So, you can't just say "Oh well, once I get my apartment/house I will no longer visit this room.", because you almost certainly will.

    Especially if you steal, which is of course a legitimate form of gameplay in this game.

    That would be just fine if there were apartments in at least as many zones as the inn rooms! I would LOVE to buy apartments in Rimmen and Vivec City! I’d love to buy a small home in Balmorra too just because I spent so much time there in the original Morrowind. :blush: Many of the homes there are lovely and I either have or plan to get most of them, but the inn rooms currently have advantages in location and/or being the only small sized home available and sometimes that is what I want for a character or concept. I must conclude that ZOS hasn’t found these smaller homes profitable enough to continue making more available so that is why I request a purchasable item-cap increase for the inn rooms, which could fulfill the same purpose as the apartments then as well and allow us more options — and reasons to buy furnishings! ;)

    Take a look, you can do some nice things with the Inn rooms, but realistically you'd need to sub for ESO+ for one month, and decorate them all within that month :)

    @ErinM31 I totally agree about Balmora. It’s such a lovely little quaint town, so peaceful looking. It’s my favorite area in all of Vvardenfell.
