Years back, when I got my PS4, the game was one of my favorites, and I used to spend hours and hours creating characters and fulfilling their life ambitions. We previously reported SIMS 5 Release Date and News do check it out if you’re a fan of it.

Recently, I again installed Sims 4 and was indeed surprised by the evolution it has undergone in the past few years. And I must say, the game is as addictive as ever, even much more than before.

All Simmers love to build multistory buildings and so do I. But how are we going to go upstairs in Sims 4 and downstairs, as well? Read on; we’ll run you through it. Even though games like Sims series don’t have high-end specs requirement but having good graphics card in your PC can save you from trouble; just in case.

How to Go Upstairs in Sims 4

Each of you might have a different purpose when it comes to access the upstairs portion of your home. You may just want to take a quick look at the upper level, or it may involve touching up the design of that portion, or to take one of the sims upstairs.

No matter what’s the reason that is attracting you upstairs, we’ll go through all the three possible ways for accessing the upstairs sections in your Sims 4 abode.

If you just want to take a glimpse of the upper section of your home in Sims 4, you can simply do that by hitting the Page Up button on your keyboard. You can also view the top floor by clicking on the arrow at the top-right corner of your screen. It’s marked in red in the screenshot below.

The up and down arrows allow you to switch between different floors of your home. If it isn’t just limited to viewing, and you want to make some changes in the upper section, you can do that too. Add anything you like, change anything you want, well, it depends on your affordability.

You may want to take a sim upstairs to bed for sleeping, or to the washroom, or to make them interact with something that’s upstairs. Whatever the reason may be, all you need to do is click on the sim’s picture at the bottom of the screen and then use left click to move them wherever you want.

If your sim needs some sleep, choose his picture and then left-click on the bed. It will further open the options about how you want the sim to interact with the item.

Choose the action you want the sim to perform with the bed; you want him to go to sleep, so click on that. If you need to go upstairs in Sims 4, that’s all you need to know.

Go Downstairs in SIMS 4

Stuck on the upper floor and want to go downstairs? That’s not a big deal!

Just hit the arrow pointing downwards on the top-right side of the screen. The arrow will move you to the lower floor. If it’s the immediate lower floor you want to access, use the arrow for once, and for moving to the floor below the immediate one, click on it twice.

Now, if you want to add a design on that particular floor, you can do that, or if you want a sim to interact with any item, you can do that too. For getting a quick view of any lower floor, hit the Page Down button, and you are good to go.
