Can someone recommend more clutter objects?
I can use in my sims world to make it more realistic like garage shelving or shed shelving units, I currently have barely anything to put in my sims garages besides a light up reindeer, and a music snow man for the holidays, or many old chairs or old beat up couches that I could put in there.
main question would be, how do you decorate your sims home inside and out, forgive me not everyone considered decorations clutter but in the sims 2 you can buy magazines, towel racks, Upper cupboards, clothing racks for closet space, radiators for winter warmth. fans for summer baby cooldowns, and much much more deco objects like pots and pans, or cookie jars. for the kitchen,

That house was downloaded, though - I don't usually build garages or attics if I build houses, but I like to place clutter around. More often than not I'll rather decorate the house for whatever season it is, and pretend they've got a storage place for the decorations or whatever. That is, unless the attic/garage space has got some sort of storytelling purpose, and I need it for pictures. Then it gets ALL THE CLUTTER! And plenty of space. I hate when I can't get a camera in sideways

I've lived all my life without a car, so my Sims don't get them either. Three or four Sims have got bicycles by mickyss. The Corntons converted their garage in Custer Boulevard into a love nest to entertain their friends. The only working garage in my game is at the downtown Teen Townie Hostel, where they think they might buy a minibus one day. But the plan now is to turn the garage into a larger games room, and convert the small upstairs games room into an extra bedroom. If they ever do get a minibus, it can sit on the driveway outside.

Most of them are not technically an attic, They are just the space under the roof. My sims can't get to them, but I can. I even have solar panels under the roof (they actually work under the roof and placed on top of each other by using "moveobjects on" ). Saves space and looks better.

Namaste... or "go"
Honestly though, I love trying to figure out what kind of clutter would be right for a particular space, to make it feel like it's actually lived in, rather than being staged like you'd see with a home listing or something...

So my sims' houses are remarkably bare.

Otherwise I might do a makeshift mudroom corner by any doors. I'll put up a mirror, and, using move objects, put shelves underneath or on top of the mirror. And I've a lot of clutter, so I might put some shoes or bags on the shelves or floor below. Or I might hang some jackets on the wall. A trick I like to do is take the jacket rack from TSS (the one with the surf board) and, using snap objects, move it into the wall so that only the pins/hooks show. Then I get a more generic looking coat rack. But I think I have a few cc racks, too. Speaking of clothes, if I have the room, I might also put the laundry in the garage. I've been on a "realistic houses" kick. I don't do a ton of details, but I have been putting in spaces for furnaces, water heaters, and laundry machines. All of those might go in the garage if I couldn't find a nook to tuck them away in the house. And with the laundry machines, I usually put laundry deco like bottles and boxes of detergent. Actually, now that I think about it, I should totally put some cleaning supplies in there, too. I've buckets and mops... I also tend to put tinkering or car deco, and yeah, any workbenches. The dresser from the kids' racing set makes a good-looking tool cabinet; I use that a lot. There's tool clutter in the game that I use, plus ATS' tinkering set.
Hmm, I'm usually at a loss for what to put in the garage, but after reading this thread, I realize there's lots more I can do. So thanks for the ideas everyone! I already have quite a bit of things that I could put in a garage like gardening supplies (maybe now I have an excuse to download that lawnmower I saw ) bike deco, or just other hobby clutter. I really like the holiday decorations idea, too. I'm usually too lazy to decorate houses for holidays, but maybe if I see them, I'll finally use them.
As for "decorative clutter", I only recently discovered it, and I love it.
