About Using Floor Plans
When building a new home in Sims 4, we often lack a clear idea of what we want to build. Or, we can have a pretty good idea of our dream house, but we don’t know exactly how to lay it out. Well, these are pretty common problems across all simmers, regardless of how long they have played the game. And one of the best solutions out there is actually using floor plans in Sims 4!
What are floor plans?
Just like in the real world, floor plans in the Sims 4 show the foundations of your house. They’re used to map out the space your build is going to require. But the most obvious reason why simmers use floor plans is to get ideas about how they can separate the rooms inside the house.
And so, there can be infinite floor plans and infinite types of houses. Keep in mind that you don’t need to use only Sims 4 floor plans, but real ones as well. For example, if you wish to build a large mansion in-game, you can look at floor plans from real-world mansions too. This can give you both inspiration and practical ideas about how you should build the mansion.

You can find floor plans for Sims 4 all over the internet. There isn’t a specific site that I or any other here on SnootySims use to find floor plans. Instead, just search the internet for the type of floor plans you need and get inspired by what you find.
But here’s a link I often use to find floor plans. This is a Pinterest collection of floor plans from many different simmers.
