This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
A full set of counters and cabinets in 12 colours, each with a few different countertops to choose from, so the counters have 34 colour variants all in all. The cabinets have an additional “No-Drop” version (which is also displayed when walls are down, so there won't be obvious gaps in the kitchen when you use e.g. the tall cabinet like a cupboard).

These are matching the Maxis “Home is Where the Hutch is” dining hutch, and other objects derived from that such as this cupboard/fridge, this armoire and this sideboard.

A fridge for this kitchen (as a fitted cupboard, like the tall cabinet) is uploaded here.




  • Left and right end cabinets are the same width as the straight version, so they can be used alternatingly for more variety
  • No backsplash on the counters (wall-bound and free-standing models are identical)
  • The left-end (open shelf) and tall cabinets have custom slots so one can put stuff in those
  • The straight counters also have custom slots ‒ I moved the dishwasher slot a little further back because the counters are a little less deep than the Maxis ones, which means the Maxis dishwasher (and any custom ones that are the same size) will stick out at the back. It does not clip through the wall though, see screenshots (the “default” screenshot shows the unchanged original rig).
  • All of the other slots/rigs are referenced from Maxis counters/cabinets, so they will update automatically and you can also use overrides such as this one (corner appliance placement)

The counters cost 185§, the cabinets 125§. Found in Counters/Cabinets. Note that the No-Drop version is just an add-on; you need the actual cabinets as well for it to work. Textures are all referenced from the abovementioned dining hutch, including the three hidden colour options.

Note that these are quite a bit more detailed than similar base game objects (mostly due to the handles), so the high poly versions in particular have a higher poly count than usual.


Polygon Counts:




blender, TSRW/Milkshape, s4pe, HexEdit.

This is my favorite kitchen counter set. I have been using it in every kitchen I built since downloading it. My only complaint is that some of the colors only have pink as a possible color for plates in the tall cabinets. Otherwise it's amazing. I can't stop using it.

The textures are Maxis, so please direct any complaints at Maxis. Better still, make some recolours instead of complaining?

I´ve posted this earlier on, but it might have landed in the wrong thread. I absolutely adore this set, just wanted to mention that objects placed on the lower shelf of the cabinets are floating in the air. Maybe you could fix that by altering the slots or by simply making the lower shelf a bit thicker. Thanks in advance.

Hey PB, I love this set and have been using it exclusively for the last few weeks in my builds. I was wondering if you thought of making an island cabinet to go with the set? I'm working on a craftsman home and want to put an island in the middle of the kitchen for extra seating. Thanks!

I would just as soon dump all the stuff that comes with S4 and pack my game with only your goodies. That's all I need! Thanks again and again!

Please return to us and perhaps make a island counter for this! It's so pretty!

I see that the creator sadly isn't active anymore but I have noticed that these counters are unusable as when you go to cook the game gives a message saying that there are no available counters. Shame because i love them.

I had the exact same problem! I absolutely had to have them and found the fix!! I used Sims 4 studio to batch fix my cc for the cats and dogs patch, they worked just as normal after that.

They still don't work for me, even with the fix above. Any ideas?
