Bathroom Tiles

EA gave us three sizes of tiles with each one fully tiled, floor to ceiling. Well I wanted some that were about 2/3 tile with room for wallpaper or paint above, suitable for kitchen or bath and that matched the existing wall tiles. This is a set of wall tiles to match the ones that came with the game. This is not a pattern! But a new wall template that will use any patterns applied as tile.
  • Bathroom Tiles
  • Bathroom Tiles Large
  • Bathroom Tiles Tiny

The walls are three channels, the same as there original EA counterpart. The only difference is the lower tile is now one channel instead of two. The reason for this is twofold. One is that I don't want it two channels and two is that my quick work of adding a channel didn't work. Since I didn't want the bottom as two channels anyway, I quickly moved on to something else. The default colors are the same as the EA wall tiles, a black/white marble. This is the 3rd preset unless you have my wall/floor hider mod, then it matches the only preset.

  • §4
  • 3 Channels
  • Default color black/white as shown - Same as EA Bathroom Tiles

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Oh my. Thank you! I've wanting this for a while... Maybe you could do a version without tiles? (2/3 any pattern?)

Thank you again!

Yay, new walls! A really neat idea to complete the set, thanks for sharing them

Oh much better. I always thought it was completely insane that the tiles go all the way up the wall. The only place I've seen that is in the shower, and even then, not a single bathroom in my house has any tile all the way up to the ceiling.

I just downloaded this and can't wait to give it a try; I never used the EA version due to the dumbness.

Thank you! It's so nice not having to fake backsplashes by seriously compromising with what EA provided us.

I use these in some of my homes. I was going to make some, but can't seem to find a tutorial that I understand. I want to make a tile wall that is lower than 2/3, but more than 1/2, so that the tile is only 1 ceramic tile height from the top of the counter. Any ideas?
