Welcome back to Room Reno #34 here at The Sims Resource! Today we’re helping a Sim who recently bought a run-down lounge that she wants to majorly make over. Let’s meet her!
Tamara is new in Newcrest and has been dreaming of starting a luxurious lounge for its residents since she moved in. She invested in a run-down dance club and wants to take it from drab to fab with a total makeover! There’s so much to fix, however, that she doesn’t know where to start. The club is a fixer upper in almost every way. While I had never renovated a community lot before, I knew that I would be up to the challenge! Let’s see what we’re working with.
So! Here’s the club. It’s…something, alright. The main word I would use to describe it is “dark”. Which is fine for a dance club, but not so much for an intimate lounge. I don’t know about you, but I like to be able to see and hear the people I’m getting food with while we eat. Also, the cardboard dance floor doesn’t quite fit the vibe that Tamara wants in her lounge–she wants something a little more upscale. Let’s get planning!
It took a lot of lighting, but I finally managed to brighten up the space and figure out what I want the new layout to be. The dance floor is going to take up a large area again, along with the DJ booth, but the addition of windows and a grand chandelier will make it so that it doesn’t feel as dark as before. Separate lounge booths will be available to parties who want to dine together, and the bar will be in the area by the staircase so that no Sims spill their juice in the dance area. Let’s get building!
This was my very first community lot makeover, and it has a lot to love–and a lot of things I can improve on, too! My favorite area of the renovated lounge is the lounge area–those gold velvet booths are TO DIE FOR. I also love how cozy the bar feels, especially with the faux fur rug underneath the seats. However, I definitely want to work more with dance floors in the future–as much as I love the dance area in this lounge, it could definitely use even more seating or visual interest as well.
