What the heck are lifestyle points, anyway?
If you want to improve your Sim’s home, you’re going to need to improve your Lifestyle. There are three main ways to earn Lifestyle points; expanding your wardrobe, buying home catalog items, and collecting heirlooms.
Buying new clothes and furniture are the easiest ways to improve your lifestyle. Many of the furnishings in the game are part of collections. It’s to your benefit to finish these collections because having completed collections also contributes to your lifestyle score.
Improving your lifestyle score is essential for significant home upgrades. If you want more land to build on or more rooms for your home, you’re going to need to raise your Lifestyle score. There are a total of 50 Lifestyle levels. Lifestyle levels start at First Furnishings and go all the way up to Toast of the Town.
Not sure what your Lifestyle score is or how close you are to adding that extra bedroom you’ve wanted for a while? Your Lifestyle score can be accessed at any time by tapping the green triangle at the top centre of your screen. On the Lifestyle screen, you’ll be able to see exactly how to earn more Lifestyle points along with your current progress towards your next level and which levels will allow you to expand your property or add a new room to your home. Your Lifestyle is key to your Sim’s quality of life, so make it a priority if you want your Sims to go from rags to riches and live a life of luxury.
So what are you waiting for? You know the saying “You’ve got to spend money to make money,” so get spending those simoleons to start making those Lifestyle points and turn your humble starter home into the Toast of the Town.
