Room Reno #51: Studio Apartment

Welcome back to Room Reno #51 here at The Sims Resource! Today we’re helping a Sim who just moved into a completely empty studio apartment that she needs designed. Let’s meet her!

Meet Shayla!

Shayla is a young adult Sim who recently moved to a small apartment in Evergreen Harbor. She doesn’t have any furniture or even any ideas of how she wants to decorate her apartment yet, but she knows she wants it to fit her personality. Her favorite color is light blue, and her favorite wood tone is a pale one. With that to go off of, her dream apartment is just a build away! Let’s see what we’re working with!

The Before

This apartment is pretty dark and drab, but there’s a lot of potential to work with. For a studio, it’s pretty good sized, even bigger than a micro home (and  maybe a tiny home). The kitchen is large, and the living area can be split in half into a bedroom and a living room with some smaller furniture and some carpets to help divide the space and make them feel like truly separate spaces. Finally, adding tiling to the kitchen walls and some paneling to the rest will really help add some character to the apartment. Let’s get planning!

The Planning

As I mentioned earlier, the kitchen in this studio is huge–big enough to have an eating area combined into the cabinets without any issue. From there, the living area is going to have a TV and maybe two small couches if they don’t overwhelm the space too much. The bedroom area will combine the bed with a built-in dresser to hold all of Shayla’s clothes since there are no closets in her new apartment. A small desk will fit near the bed so Shayla has a spot to game and relax. Let’s get building!

The After

This build turned out so cute! I really love designing small spaces in The Sims because it allows me to be creative with limited resources and space, even if the game allows me to build something absolutely huge. Something about having restrictions to work against makes me think more creatively, and if you’re in a build rut I absolutely suggest giving yourself some rules to follow. You can even try some of the EA challenges if you want to spice your builds up!
