The Sims 4 Realism: Character Details for your Builds

The Sims 4 builds can feel pretty true to life at times, especially when you give the rooms that ‘lived-in’ vibe. Most of the time we have this mental check-list of the items that need to be in each house in order for our Sims to live a comfortable life. You know, like a toilet, shower, bed, and all of the other essentials; very life-like items that go in all of our houses. In this build article, I’d like to remind you of things that you can include in your builds in order to make them more detailed and interesting that go beyond game functionality.

Pull-Out Couch

Having a family member or friend stay over? Why not build a pull-out couch in that den space for them to stay in. This is a cute little detail to add and it’s super simple! I used two base-game items, a normal couch and a bed, and used the cheat bb.moveobjects to place one inside the other! The bed is functional and is a great way to tell a story with your builds.

Utility Room

If I have a small area in a commercial space or even some under-the-sitars space I’d like to fill, sometimes I pop in a little utility closet for fun. Where else would your Sim hide to play video games on their work break?

Pantry

This shot is from an apartment build that I created a while ago. The space was too small to be functional, so I thought adding a little food pantry could be a nice way to utilize the area and add some visual appeal.

Laundry Room

When will we have functional laundry in The Sims 4? Hopefully soon! In the meantime, you can add these rooms to your interiors if you want the added realism. This gorgeous laundry room build was created by my stream community member epic_wifey!

Do you have any other build details which realism that you like to include in your designs? Let me know in the comments below!
