The Sims 4 Tutorial: How to Shape Counters and Cabinets

The Sims 4 introduces a new way of customizing Counters and Cabinets.

Before we start showing off all the shapes, you’ll need to do one most important step, and that’s disabling Auto-Counter feature.

After you’ve done that, click on a Counter of your choice and select the color palette. The Counter editor will immediately show up and you’ll be able to purchase and place different kinds of Counters into your room.

Cabinets function the same way: you need to disable Auto-Cabinets in order to place individually styled pieces.

We recommend that you place Double Tiled Cabinets on a Medium or High wall.
