Basements are a great way to maximize lot space, or a welcome addition to any home if you have a paranoid Sim that needs a secret bunker! Unfortunately basements can sometimes be a bit sad with no natural light. We need basement windows!
Adding windows directly to a basement doesn’t work, since you’re just looking outside and straight into dirt! A great hack around this problem is to add pool windows – follow these easy steps to brighten up any underground space in The Sims 4!
How to add basement windows in The Sims 4:
- Locate the basement tool in Build mode
- Place your basement
Put your basement wherever you’d like it to be
- Locate the pool tool in Build mode
- Place your pool
Make sure the pool is inside the basement you placed in earlier steps.
- Choose your pool windows
Drop down the basement level and select your pool window. Note: bigger windows let in more light
- Add your pool windows
Let there be light! Add windows to your pool and see how your basement becomes a much brighter place
