Pixels were introduced in November 2008 as a form of points on Habbo that users were able to acquire by spending time on the Hotel. Users were able to buy a small range of furniture. It must be noted that Pixels could not be traded between users or exchanged like Credit Furni. To acquire pixels, users had to log in, receive them every 15 minutes, complete achievements or quests, or join VIP. Users were also able to redeem their pixels for special effects to make their Habbo avatar look more unique. You also had the opportunity redeem pixels for some pieces of furni. Sometimes it required users to add credits along with pixels to make a purchase, so it was important to double-check the price of an item before immediately buying. On the 8th of June 2012, it was announced that pixels would be leaving Habbo on the 19th of the same month. Most Habbos agreed that it was a needed change, whilst some disagreed. A special set of Pixel furniture has been released to commemorate the event.
Pixel Effects were special effects that could be purchased from the Catalogue using Pixels and Credits. Pixel effects added special graphic effects to the user's character, such as sparkles or invisibility. Most effects cost between 50 - 139 Pixels, although some premium effects were instead sold for 1 Credit. Most Pixel effects were available to all Habbo users, however, some are only available to VIP users.
The Pixel Effects returned back in February 2013 with the introduction of Duckets.
Users were able to redeem their Pixels for a variety of different of furniture and allowed users to purchase a selection of wall paint and flooring. Most of the furniture has been discontinued or moved away towards the new Duckets program.
The Automobile range of furniture originally came to the hotel in March 2009 but was later removed and brought back to life in February 2013. Originally in 2009, they were available using Pixels. At the same time as this, there were also effects available which would turn a Habbo into a vehicle, the items were available for a mixture of credits and pixels.
Hello was a furniture range that can be bought primarily with Pixels: ranging from 120 to 160 Pixels, until the removal of Pixels and Pixel Furniture from the catalogue in June 2012. This furniture range is untradeable and bizarrely there are duplicate furniture items under different names (e.g. 2 types of Hello Chairs - "starter chair" and "My first Habbo chair"). There are also some glitched Hello items that can be sold in the Marketplace despite most of them being un-tradeable. The complete list of colours available for these items are:
- Dark Blue
- Light Blue
Red stripes were also an option for the Chairs (although the colour is actually brown and referred to as "aubergine" on other Hello items) alongside a "Canary Yellow" option for the Lamps.
On the Habbo home page, under the minimail, there used to be a blue box saying "Your next gift!". This meant that a user was able to get Hello Furni without spending Pixels. It would only show them what furniture they will be able to acquire, and a timer displaying how long the offer lasts for.

In April 2011 the small Kuurna furniture line was added to the Pixel Shop. Along with the small furni range, users were also able to use Pixels to purchase a selection of wall and floor coverings.

Rentals were another type of furniture which Habbos could purchase from the Pixel Shop. Each rental cost 139 Pixels and lasted for one hour. Rentals could not be gifted or traded. There were three types of rentals available:
Pixel Pet Accessories
Pixel Pet Accessories were food for Habbo Pets. Prices ranged from 100 pixels, right up to 400 pixels. These foods were all low in energy, the lower the price the lower the energy and the higher the price the higher the energy.

In 2012, Pixels were removed from Habbo and as a special gift, Red Kuurna furni was placed in the catalogue. They were re-coloured versions of the original Kuurna furniture set. The red version was also set to tradeable. The Exotic Butterfly and Pixel Memorial were the two exclusive rare items that concluded the pixel program. They were 25 Credits + 15,000 Pixels.

The Asteroid, Planet of Love, and Planet of Eternity were all Pixel Collectibles released throughout 2009 to get users to cough up huge amounts of Pixels.
