A Smurf house is a standard form of residence for a Smurf that's shaped like a mushroom. It is a two-floor house that typically has one door, a few ground-floor windows and some rooftop windows, and a chimney stack. The ground floor is usually used as the living room while the top floor is used as a bedroom. The roof of the Smurf house is an actual mushroom top that the Smurfs find in the forest.

The actual interior arrangement of a house depends on the occupant's personal use. Handy's house, for example, uses the ground floor for a workshop, while Papa Smurf's uses the ground floor for his laboratory.

In The Cartoon Show

In the 1980's cartoon, all Smurf houses are inconsistently structured or arranged in some form throughout the series. In a "canonical" sense, this can be excused by the village (or specific houses) constantly getting rebuilt or moved after being destroyed. For some Smurf houses, the top floor is rarely shown if it serves no purpose to the story.

In most episodes, the average Smurf seemingly uses the ground floor as a combination of a living room and bedroom (or it switches between the two) instead of the top. This makes it easier for the others to visit those whom are still in bed, as shown in stories like "Now You Smurf 'Em, Now You Don't", "Hefty And The Wheelsmurfer", and "The Dark Ness Monster". This decision also makes it more convenient for them to wake up and exit their homes quickly when danger or excitement arises.

Handy's kitchen area being used by Clumsy

Few houses also appear to have a kitchen area, such as Handy's in "One Good Smurf Deserves Another" and Brainy's in "The Gingerbread Smurfs". However, more often than not, the Smurfs don't have a kitchen of any kind in their home except for Greedy. This is due to the others usually having no cooking or baking experience or interest in learning the skills.

Much like the comics, an entire Smurf house can be painted any color from orange, pink, red, blue, gray, etc. Smurfette's house stands out from the rest, as the base and roof are painted shades of pink or purple (notably when the show's colors got more saturated in Seasons 6 to 8), but with added unique heart-shaped elements like windows and shutters. It is also surrounded by flowers, as Smurfette maintains her own garden.

In terms of interior decorations, specifics differ from Smurf to Smurf, but one thing all houses seem to have in common is various framed paintings along the walls. These can depict anything, but the most frequent subjects are Papa Smurf and Baby Smurf.

Smurf houses also never seem to have front door locks, as a Smurf is often invited into another's home or enters unexpectedly. In "Sweepy Smurf", Greedy and Handy make a serious effort to prevent Sweepy's visits by adding a lock to the chef's front door and boarding up his chimney for the first time.

In "Gargamel's Dummy", Jokey has a cellar in his house that he uses to store his "surprise" joke boxes and miscellaneous items. While Greedy is shown with pastries hidden under his floorboards on more than one occasion, he doesn't appear to have this type of storage space for them. In "The Smurfs That Time Forgot", Grandpa reveals that he has a secret cellar. His cellar is much more elaborate than Jokey's, as it has a winding staircase and a chamber used to store the Time Scrolls. This chamber is blocked by a hand, beard, and tail recognition system to prevent the magical items from falling into the wrong hands. It is unknown if any other Smurf houses have a cellar, though Papa has once mentioned that he has an attic.

Smurfs' Village

A sample of a smurf house in the Smurfs' Village game

In the Smurfs' Village app, a Smurf house (referred to as a hut) is the main item for building a village. The game provides several houses in different colors and price in all districts (main, island, mountain and Planet Swoof). More Smurfs will appear in the game when more houses are placed. Players can upgrade their houses with coins and smurfberries to have more Smurfs in the game.

Players can also place houses for more Swoofs, but only once player complete the collections of constellations.

Special Smurf characters (Papa Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Handy Smurf, Smurfette, etc.) have their own huts, which one can buy with smurfberries and coins.
