1. No need to force all the space

The biggest lesson we learned from the game is that shelters also need breathing room. In the game, Sims characters invited to the house to party will have difficulty moving if too much furniture is piled up in the house, and when they have to go to the kitchen or toilet, they will have to take a long detour. Likewise, we may be used to stacking objects all over the space. Sometimes the best space planning is to do nothing. Unless you want to live like a hermit crab, you still have to consider the space you need when you have visitors in your home.

2. Unify the overall concept, not just look at a piece of furniture

It’s important to consider whether a piece of furniture will fit in with the overall look and fit into the space in your home. A sofa that stands out in a showroom doesn’t mean it’s a good fit for your living room. The Sims 4 lets you switch furniture styles at the touch of a button. This may be no different from flipping through a reference catalog, but it actually allows players to preview whether the furniture is suitable for the home environment before clicking to buy. This is also what we should learn in real life, rather than rashly buying furniture just because of the design of the furniture itself.

3. Try a variety of styles and designs

The Sims 4 lets players choose a unified design concept (such as a unified kitchen design), so try a variety of styles and see how it goes.

4. Furniture adapts to living habits
