A kid’s room is the one place in the world they can call their own, a personal space they can decorate to their heart’s content. With the release of The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff*, the first pack themed just for children, the options for customising their rooms are now richer than ever before.
Check out these five tips on starting a fun kid’s room makeover.
Make it exciting. Kids are bustling with energy, so it’s always a good idea to build a space that keeps them excited and engaged. Add some activities to their room so that they have their own personal space to play in. The new Puppet Theater and Voidcritter Battle Station that come with The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff are fantastic for kids passing time by themselves, or when hanging out with siblings or friends.
Wall decals are ideal for decorating a kid’s space. Slap them on the wall, peel them back off… they’re perfect for a kid’s lifestyle where the current hot trend can quickly become yesterday’s news. The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff comes with a number of new decals, including one for each of the collectible Voidcritter monsters!
Make it cluttered. Adding clutter to a room is a great way to make a space feel lived in – doubly so for children, with their parents always getting after them to clean up their room. Browse through the décor section of the catalog and you’ll find backpacks, sports equipment, stacks of schoolbooks, model trains, and so much more. Add some of the new shelving in Kids Room Stuff to hold it all!
Pick a pattern. Catalog variants aren’t just for changing colour, they can also add patterns or even change an object’s shape entirely. One of my favourites in The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff is the wall light string with photos clipped to it. Changing variants on the object will actually change the photos, allowing for additional customisation. Another fun one is the giant robot wall decal which comes in a stoic position where it stands guard, as well as an action pose where it’s ready to leap into battle.
Embrace passion. A kid’s room often speaks to what they’re passionate about. Is your kid dreaming of becoming an astronaut? Perhaps they’ve taken an interest in growing flowers in the family’s garden. Or maybe they have a framed jersey of a soccer star on their wall, as they imagine themselves one day stepping onto the pitch. The furniture in The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff covers a range of themes to help personalise your Sims kid’s story.
