This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Hi all!

To continue my Japanese-inspired collection, I have created a bathroom set called "Biwa":


It contains 10 new meshes.
A bath tub, a sink , a mirror, a toilet and a decorative toilet paper holder:

Three decorative items:
A bench, a trash can, a wall shelf:

A floor lamp and a window ( straight and diagonal walls):


You can find my kitchen set here: http://www.modthesims2.com/member/s...ad.php?t=256665
and my bedroom set here:
http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=230792

I hope you will like this bathroom set as you have apreciated the two other sets!

Thanks for your nice comment Ganguro
I know the difference between my set and a traditional japanese bathroom but, for the game, it's very difficult to create something very different than the maxis meshes! It's what I called "Japanese inspired"...
The bench is a sculpture and the slippers are a part of it.

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

Hi netaa,
I used a mirror flooring over my own (non shiny) floor, which had be found for free, a few months ago, here:
http://www.muranomobilia.com/produc.../millenium.html
Today you can find it here: http://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/Murano/ but probably not for free!

I love this set...will you update the appliances to work with Free time (tinkering, etc.) in this set and others? Or is that too much? Also, could you maybe consider a shower with this set?

Very beautiful! Great idea to seperate the download into windows and objects! Although I can't see why anyone wouldn't want to download the whole set!
I love the window! Can't wait to use it in my game and renovate some of my houses!!

One question: Is it possible that you create a collection file of the set?

I was one of the many looking forward to bath and kitchens sp but I am now scared off by all the horror stories. So came poking around and feel in love with your bathroom This is high quality stuff ... if the EA came out with this and your bathroom and the bedroom... I would spend 20 dollars for it.
