Stairs & Ladders
Home is where the heart is, where you can relax, work, dream and reach for the skies! Sometimes a Sims’ home is compact and straightforward, but every now and then homes and furniture can get bigger, better and taller. While you could just solve the problem with any old ladder or stairs, they won’t always live up to the impeccable standards Sims can have. To make sure home doesn’t lose that familiar touch, we’ve compiled our favourite stairs and ladders for you to pick from!
Interior Design: Going Up!
Palladium Bookshelf Stairs
The discerning bookworm has a problem most don’t: too many great books! Their bookshelves get wider and wider, then they grow taller once there’s no more floor space, until they outgrow the poor reader. If this sounds like a Sim you know, make their day by adding wondymoon‘s Palladium bookshelf stairs to their home. The design is minimalistic, relying on the colours to add the extra touch while remaining fully functional. Download it at The Sims Resource!
Zirconium Shelf Stairs
A slightly different touch is needed when the tall shelf problem is at work, but wondymoon has you covered. From the same collection as Palladium, the Zirconium stairs have a more professional feel to them, great to blend in with the workspace decor. Download it at The Sims Resource.
While we often think of stairs as a purely functional item, Spanish artist Pilar has sought to show the beauty in them. This sculpture combines the rusted metal look with a yellow painting of a ladder, with three climbers working their way through them. Many interpretations exist for it, but we’ll leave you to find yours. Download it here!
