How to Make Your House Awesome & Decent in The Sims 4
Building a house in the Sims can be just as stressful as if it were being done in real life. There is a lot that needs to be sorted out if you truly want to have the best house ever in the city. It doesn’t hurt to start small though. Getting through the basics in one piece will allow you to have a much more beautiful house than if you tried to act like a pro almost at once. Here is a handy guide to getting the most out of your new house in the Sims 4, especially if it is your first.
#1: Sort the basics out
Start from the beginning for your best shot at reaching a good end. If the withertos and the whyfors of beginning construction are escaping you, be random. The best part about the Sims is that you are allowed to do what you want. This means that you can even stick 40 different walls all over the place and delete them until you have the basic outline of the home that you want. A normal, decently priced house won’t be too bad of a drain on your resources.
However, you should definitely be as extravagant as you want to be. Splash out on 2 or even 3 stories. Try not to turn it into a uniform shape though. Think a space-age condo from a comic book, with a different shape on the top floor and extensions.
One quick tip would be to avoid the square or rectangular homes that you are going to be inclined to draw. This is the world of the Sims, not real life. You can make your home in the shape of a pineapple if you want, and call your sim Spongebob. Nobody is going to have anything to say about your choice.
#2 – The roof
Make sure that your roof is exciting. All too often, the home is going to look absolutely wonderful, but the roof is going to be terribly uninteresting. In order to avoid this, try going for many different forms when you are building your roof. Go for taller roofs, which will allow you to build an attic space as well and have a few adventures in it. If you’re the party type, why not forego the roof altogether in favor of a top floor open to the sky for house parties?
#3 – Main entrance
Nobody is going to want to come into your home if your entrance looks like it is the entrance to Dracula’s castle. While this design is all fine and dandy for the Halloween season, you are going to need one that is far more attractive for the other parts of the year. Adding decks to a main entrance is a wonderful way to make it look more appealing. Try for a set of doors that truly shows your individuality in the design.
There are more ways you could make your home look even more awesome in the Sims 4. The best guide for you is the one you build in your own head. Find out your favorite design through trial and error in order to get the best home ever.
