The Sims 4 Tutorial: How to Delete Floor tiles and Wallpapers

You probably noticed that when you try to delete a floor tile using the sledgehammer tool or the remove floor option when you click on a room, it simply removes the entire floor, not just a tile you want to remove.

If you try to add a new floor tile, it simply goes over the existing floor tile without deleting it and giving you Simoleons for it.

To delete a floor tile, click on Floor Patterns and select the Masonry pattern category.

The first floor pattern on that category is the Construction-Quality Concrete. That floor tile is used when adding new rooms and it costs 0 Simoleons!

Simply place that tile on any floor tile you want and you’ll get Simoleons for deleting the old one (must be at least 1 Simoleon more expensive).

The same thing goes for Wallpapers. You can’t use the sledgehammer tool since it will delete a wall, not the wallpaper.

To delete a Wallpaper, go to the Wall Patterns section and select the Paint category. The first pattern on the list is a Drywall, which is also used when building and adding new rooms.

Add it on any wall pattern and you’ll get Simoleons for ”deleting” the old one (must be at least 1 Simoleon more expensive).

  • Shane Mac

    Double click the floor and press remove floor

    • Savannah

      This removes the WHOLE floor, not just one tile.

    I would love to know how to readd floor on a foundation? After I made it impossible to just hit the undo button.

    What happened was I built a gazebo on a foundation deleted the floor then went into live mode to check out how my fountain looked and forgot to add the floor back, now when I try to add it, all it does is put the flooring on the ground not back up as high as the foundation…
