The Sims 4 comes with a huge range of content and features, especially once you start digging into the Expansion Packs and Stuff Packs you can buy. However, even with all the options out there, not everything has been covered by official content from EA. Fortunately, that is where the modding community comes in. If something you’re looking for isn’t in one of the official Stuff Packs, here are some of the best custom content mods for The Sims 4.
Sims 4 custom content mods – our top 10 picks
The community for The Sims 4 is very active and passionate about helping players get the content they’re looking for. Once you get your head around how to install mods in the game, it will open up a whole new world of possibilities for your Sims to express themselves. Just be aware that whenever the game gets patched or you install the latest Expansion Pack, it can result in your custom content acting up. Check back on the website you downloaded the mod from to find out if they’re working on an update to get it working again.

This content pack for The Sims 4 gives your sims a stylish, simple way to decorate their home. Everything is very slick and well-designed. Whether you want to create a simple open-plan studio apartment or just the perfect presentation of modern living, the 25 new objects and walls included in the Contemporary Living Stuff Pack have something that you’ll love.
The Futura Living Stuff Pack
This content pack is so retro it feels like it’s looped back into modern. The décor, fixtures, and furniture in the Futura Living Stuff Pack are a great representation of the 60s and 70s style. With shelves that serve as room dividers and lampshades with layers to them, everything feels exactly like how the world thought the future would look 50 years ago. This pack is very different from anything available in the base game and is designed with such an eye for detail that it feels like it could be from Maxis’ own designers.
The Kichen Stuff Pack
With a title that stems from a typo made in Twitch chat back in 2018, this content pack for The Sims 4 includes a huge collection of 56 kitchen items to help you create the room of your dreams. It is the result of a collaboration between two well-known content creators in the Sims 4 community and their combined creativity and polish make this one of the most impressive kitchen sets you can get in the game. The Kichen Stuff Pack is probably the most impressive kitchen set in the game, including the official content from Maxis.
The Minimalist Bedroom Stuff Pack
This custom content pack is a bit smaller than the other packs on this list, but everything is so polished and well-designed that it can fit in directly with official content without anyone noticing a difference. The Minimalist Bedroom Stuff Pack also includes things like desks and floors so you can use a lot of the furniture here throughout your house. It is all simple but highly effective.
The Roarsome Kids Bedroom Stuff Pack
This is one for the kids. What child doesn’t love surrounding themselves with animals? The Roarsome Kids Bedroom pack offers you the chance to deck out your child Sim’s room with all manner of furry friends. There are dogs and cats on the walls, an adorable koala-shaped bed, and a giraffe bookcase that looks amazing. Any kid will love the furniture and décor on offer here.
The Rustic Romance Stuff Pack
If you want to create a dreamy atmosphere for your pair of lovestruck Sims, this custom content pack includes 70 different items. It is generally themed around an outdoor wedding but the decorations and furniture can be used for any romantic occasion your Sims run into.

The Stellar Stuff Pack
This custom content pack for The Sims 4 is the very definition of “out of this world.” This stuff pack contains a mixture of clothing, hairstyles, and jewelry for your Sims and the ability to deck your home out in the most futuristic decorations imaginable. You can create a whole spaceship home or recreate a Moon Laboratory to help you live out your spaceman fantasies. The Stellar Stuff Pack has over 120 items in it, so it takes some time to install but is well worth the effort.
The Teen Style Stuff Pack
If you’re tired of seeing your teenage Sims looking like slightly smaller versions of their parents, then here is the content pack for you. The content in the Teen Style Stuff Pack offers you three sets of clothes that you can mix and match to your heart’s content. The three sets are The Punk Kid, The It Girl, and The Athlete, but you can swap different hairstyles and clothing colors to create a look perfect for your particular teen Sim.
Windenburg University is a whole campus in one easy-to-install custom content pack. Not only does it include a massive campus building, including the canteen, dorms, lecture halls, and Dean’s office you’d expect, but it also comes with varsity jackets and poses to help deck your Sim out in their best college style. The only downside is that the actual Windenburg University building isn’t technically a home, so you can’t set your teen Sims to live there — but there are plenty of ways around that if you get creative.
