End Shelves on cabinets
5b7e060f4cf0aba08a0e1973455287deafc37f02.pnj

Microwave Cabinets to free up counter space, allowing for prep space below the microwave. More convenient height than above-the-range
3227752e55a195fe2616c6a9135875621637d220.pnj

Pantry Cabinets only included pics of large ones, but they can basically be tall cabinets one tile or two tile (like a fridge)

Split-Level Island Counters from slim to wide (similar to the bar-object in game but modular like counters/cabinets)
6855200b9d3954d9294511216dc7f9e92eb923f2.pnj

Wall Ovens from single to double. Some singles can have microwaves above

    I'd like to also see deep freezers, more tea kettle options, and more decorative food options. I love the tea sets, fruitcakes, etc but wouldn't mind like some Japanese/other Asian style tea cakes or even boxes of chocolates or trays of cupcakes to decorate with. Also why not decorative chopping boards? I would love a chopping board with a knife on it and various salad ingredients or one to hang on the wall. We have aprons and all sorts of wall hanging stuff but no oven mitts for some reason.

    Walk-in freezer and fridge for restaurants.

    Walk in pantries
    pizza oven Sims 3
    pizza rotator for cabinet top
    cotton candy machine- we should've gotten with fair stuff
    cabinet top Foreman grill for indoors

    canning machine and the ability to can and have a canning shelf and a lazy susan to put the jars in.



    wall radio for listening to in the kitchen; speakers are kind of like it, but I had one in the Sims 3 and it must've been cc because I never could find it after I got rid of cc. It was in Crumplebottom's house.


    I like the tea kettle idea

    Although I don't care as much for the chef career, I nearly always have decked my kitchens out in the Sims 3 & 4.
  • SuceressSuceress Posts: 1,576 Member
    I'm actually designing a walk-in-pantry for my game but I'm making it a closet with shelves and such. Which is what I have in real life. The walk-in freezers and fridges (basically cold rooms) for restaurants would be nice. I almost said "cool". LOL.

    I meant to add kettles to the list but was tired and posted what I had collages of so far. I'm working on a kettle collage. In my real kitchen I have two pressure cookers (one 8qt & other 6qt). We use the smaller one to make rice and larger one for soups, stews, beans, etc. We also have an electric kettle for heating up water for various things.

    Deco oven mitts and cutting boards would also be nice.

    I almost forgot about the Foreman Grill. We used to have one but cats knocked it off the counter and broke it. A lazy susan would be cool.

    I'm on board with pizza ovens as well-- although, I could see that as being more toward a bbq outdoor area, but it could also work indoors. By pizza-rotator, do you mean like a lazy susan but large enough for a pizza?

    A canning station would be nice as well.

    The radio idea is interesting. I don't think that is specific to kitchens, but I could see various types of radios working. Did you have anything specific in terms of looks in mind?

    I also forgot to mention spice racks. I will have to see if I can find a picture of the spice rack my late elderly friend made. I'll have to do some more picture collages.

    Some other things I thought of that I will later add images for:
    Mandoline (slices stuff), cheese grater, upright freezer, & chest freezer (both possibly fitting in a pantry).

    I've seen CC of a lot of things-- deco food, blenders, cheese grater, mandoline, air fryer, rice cooker, crockpot, mixing bowl, cutting board, pizza board, etc. It would be nice to have some official content though.

    I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to create the split-level island using a table and making it taller or raising it up and using decorative corbels or something underneath & then having taller chairs.

    Does the game have spoon rests already? (I haven't played in awhile due to my computer acting up on me).

    It wasn't me who suggested the radio but just thought I'd toss it out there ..... I have a blue-tooth radio mounted under the cabinet in my RL kitchen, so something like that would be cool. It could still technically be "wall mounted" so it could slide up and down the wall to appear like it's under the cabinet depending on cabinet height, but made to look like it was mounted underneath a cabinet.

    @friendlysimmers I like the retro dishwasher idea. Oh man, the green one is about the same color as the tub & sink in our bathroom (it was that color when we moved in). Freestanding dishwasher would be nice. I have one in my house that we use as a sort of island and the inside is used as a drying rack. It doesn't clean worth crap so I haven't used it in years. I have to wash stuff before I put it in and then rinse it and dry it afterward bc it leaves a film. LOL. The rocker switch and outlet in one of your pics reminds me that I want more light switches and outlets for the game (I don't know if it has any but I've found some CC). I'm cringing because that outlet looks to be w/in 36" of the sink and its not GFCI (I study building and plumbing codes).

    @Chicklet453681 That's interesting. I am not up-to-date on tech so my kitchen doesn't have any bluetooth devices. I know there are some pull-down racks (which I actually have for a different purpose) that some people use for cookbooks or tablets. I'll have to get good pictures. I also have a paper towel holder that mounts to the underside of the cabinet. That would be a cool thing for the game. I'd be on board with a tablet or device that can play music that mounts somewhere in the kitchen (both in game and real life).

    I'm currently working on my kettle collage as well as on a frankensteined 6-slice toaster.

    Any other suggestions?

    I made some more collages
    Kettles

    Mandolines / slicers
    4fe6d3c570094d1d8394846831c0f6ea30521b73.pnj

    Graters / zesters (I could see the industrial one being used in a pizza place or restaurant)
    c10fe68fcbca53746e02b7b43452c12174e3afc5.pnj

    Electric Grills (the power XL thing is a grill/air fryer combo- I included different looks for it). I actually saw it in the store the other day while looking to see what sort of appliances are available for kitchens
    92a58093085aaea2e5bb8139cdeb799303e47271.pnj

    Lasy Susans
    2d96e4c0642729f3508e3ca0b4dd9c43f9e68453.pnj

    Freezers (first two are actually commercial fridges but I can see them being freezers as well-- commercial fridges would be nice)
    716d68ccf1e02b254c3236813a88aafade60a023.pnj

    I haven't done a collage, but this is similar to the dishwasher I have-- hooks up to the sink, has wheels, and has a faux butcherblock/wood top.

    @davina1221 when you said pizza rotator, did you mean like this?

    or this

    or something different?

    More collages:
    Pizza rotators, pizza ovens, pizza turners, pizza makers, etc
    851b484aa35253ee13ba6e989eeb1110b99c6400.pnj

    Freestanding portable dishwashers. I couldn't quite find the kind I have that is a full 30" wide, but you get the idea. Unfortunately, modern faucets are not designed to allow dishwasher hookups.
    af78442feb47220d4889229d3a9cf18cdd39b393.pnj

    More hanging pot racks. (I'm trying to find some with LED lights or some sort of lamps attached but didn't see anything)
    14dce57346020343dd8dbf65ead3d8caaaf87917.pnj

    Wall-mount pot racks (some smaller ones can mount to sides of cabinets)

    A trash bin that is under the counter. They had it in 3. Also, not really an object, but I would like to be able to add seasonings to dishes to enhance quality- a pinch of pepper, maybe basil leaves, parsley on noodles...
  • crocobauracrocobaura Posts: 5,508 Member
    I think that now we've got curved walls, some curved counter pieces that fit nicely along the wall would be nice. Also, curved sofa pieces.

    @Gamer_34567544 do you mean like trash compactors that go under the counter? I don't remember regular trash bins that fit under-- although, that would be nice too. Being able to add seasonings would be nice. Maybe a spice rack could tie into that. They could have a "spice things up" rack that you could store seasonings in and using it to add seasoning to dishes would have different beneficial effects.

    @crocobaura We have curved walls now? I haven't opened the game since the last patch so I didn't know that. I could see curved seats for an eat-in-kitchen. Sort of like for a breakfast nook. I would love to have more curved objects.
  • Gamer_34567544Gamer_34567544 Posts: 1,223 Member
    @Suceress , Yeah, a trash compactor to hold more junk.
  • Mak27Mak27 Posts: 807 Member
    • Deep fryers
    • Air fryers
    • Kitchen aid
    • Sink in the corner of a counter
    • More outdoor kitchen appliances
    • Pizza oven
    • Mediterranean herbs and decoration
    • Kitchen islands with cabinets
    • Two tiles fridge
    • Trash compactor
  • SuceressSuceress Posts: 1,576 Member
    @Gamer_34567544 I just saw that there is one trash compactor from Eco Life & its a huge monstrosity. Under-the-counter trash compactors like from previous games would be nice. Sims2 and Sims3 had a decent variety.

    @Mak27 I agree with everything you added. I'd love to have a sink be able to go in a corner. I forgot that island counters don't have doors or drawers for the most part. Cabinets hanging over the island would also be nice. My kitchen has a peninsula (instead of an island) and there are cabinets hanging above. Two tile fridges would be great.

    I'd also like more bread boxes. I think the only one from EA is in the Parenthood pack that I didn't get because I don't like kids & don't want children in my game.

    I'd like :
    • Some bigger fridges (those large ones with a double door and a water or ice dispenser).
    • Fridge cabinets.
    • Kitchenaid type baking robot (that would be perfect as a normal sized cupcake "machine").
    • Wall-mounted ovens (I think CC creators have made some that work, so it's possible).
    • Toasters.
    • I wish counters came with both drawers and doors versions, at least for the main counter piece, because it looks weird to have the same counters repeated several times in a row.

    Yes to all of these! I'm not familiar with teh Kitchenaid baking robot though. I have downloaded deco as well as functional wall oven cc. I think there is only one functional toaster cc. Under the counter options it would be nice to be able to choose drawers or doors or a combo of both. Fridge cabinets would be awesome. There are some nice CC versions available.

    I have never owned an electric can opener. In fact, I have never been to someone's home who had one. I had thought they were something only a few people used in the mid-29th century, but no?

    I would rather see more function in fewer, simpler things though, which is more the lifestyle I see happening in the here and now. French press and pour over, cold brew..those are more the norm now in daily life than automatic drip coffeemakers that heat water in plastic.

    Goodwill always has George Foreman grills, cake pop makers, and other one-use Teflon coated appliances, and cast iron has seen a resurgence in interest instead.

    @ignominiusrex My family has had electric can openers for a long time. It was hard to find a good manual one that didn't break (at least in my area). I have the Hamilton Beach one from the upper left corner of the collage in my first post. I have carpal tunnel syndrome and am very uncoordinated so an electric can opener really helps. A lot of cans have the pop-tops now so can openers are not as necessary, but having manual can openers would also be nice (for the game). I'd like to have simple stuff as well as high tech for the game.

    I know the game already has one bread box. It is the ONLY item I'm interested in from the Parenthood pack. No offense intended toward the developers, but I don't like babies or kids so my games are child free. Even if the breadbox is just decorative, it would be nice to have more in game.

    More collages and items:
    Trash Compactors/Pull-Out Trash Bins

    Another thing I'm thinking of is potato bins. I will have to try to get a good picture of the one I have (custom built by a late elderly friend).

    Personally Id be happy with more cabinets and clutter items.
    I think we need some very worn, scuffed looking wood cabinets with decent wood tones and also some new ultra modern ones...something like the style of Island Living cabinets but in shiny chrome, marble, etc textures.
    For clutter Id like to see more items like tea towels, washing up caddies, maybe a chopping board and knife, mugs and glasses.

    The only other thing Id like is a kitchen bin fitted into a cabinet.
  • SuceressSuceress Posts: 1,576 Member
    @dogzdinner It would be nice to have more cabinet style options. I'm not familiar with washing up caddies. Is it like a cart or something with wheels that dishes are placed in (sort of like when busing tables)? Cutting boards, knives, mugs, and glasses would be nice as well. More decorative cookware & utensils would be good.

    I'm not sure what you mean by a kitchen bin? Rubbish bin that fits inside a cabinet? Like the pull-out ones? Or ones where you open the cabinet door and access the rubbish bin?

    What I mean by « Kitchenaid » is actually the second mixer on your mixers picture. The red one with a big bowl. Here (France) I often see the brand Kitchenaid so I call them that, but I guess baking robot/mixer might be more appropriate.

    Here's an idea! How about more off-the-grid camping gear? Gas portable grills, a pot to place over a fire, a way to use the heat of the sun to cook things? I've seen an experiment like this with hotdogs.

    Would be nice to have a pot and hanging frame to suspend it over any fireplace, but heat from the sun only really works in the hottest summer days and hotdogs you don't really need to cook, more like warm up. I wouldn't dare eat meat cooked that way.
