Welcome back to Room Reno #44 here at The Sims Resource! Today we’re helping two Sims who are living in tiny spaces in the heart of San Myshuno. Let’s meet them!
Meet Anya and Davis!
Anya and Davis both moved to San Myshuno recently, and they’re both looking for a place to live! Luckily, one of the apartment buildings in the fashion district has been recently renovated, so they’ll both have new apartments to move into–they’re just tiny! They want to know if they can both get the decor style they want in a really tiny footprint, or if tiny-apartment living isn’t for them after all. Let’s see what we’re working with!
Wow. This apartment sure is…something, alright. The bright orange and yellow walls are certainly a choice, and I’m not sure what motivated it. The layout of the apartment is a bit confusing, too–the space isn’t being used very economically, so there’s a ton of empty space that could be used for more furniture and function. The room is also really dark despite the incredible floor to ceiling windows, which also needs to be remedied ASAP to make the space reach its full potential.
This is the new layout of the original apartment. One is slightly larger than the other, so that tenant will end up paying higher rent, but it’s totally worth it for the extra space if they need it! Each apartment’s layout is based around the largest pieces of furniture in the space–the beds and the kitchens. While Sims don’t need a lot of kitchen space to cook, a small kitchen still takes up a lot of space in a tiny apartment. The bathrooms in each apartment also take up a lot of the space, even though they’re as tiny as they possibly could be. Let’s see how this layout works with actual furniture!
These two apartments have totally different vibes, yet they both make the most of their spaces! For Anya’s apartment, I used a daybed to function as a couch as well as a bed for maximum spatial efficiency. A tiny computer desk and dining table help provide more surfaces for Anya to use, as well. Davis’ apartment is a bit larger, but it also makes good use of the space, with a ton of plants used to take advantage of the huge windows in the room. The custom dresser in his space is also a fun touch, allowing for more storage while still looking chic.
