Countertops, or counters, are a type of surface primarily used for food preparation. Small appliances, such as microwaves and toaster ovens, can be placed on counters. Non-freestanding or wall-mounted sinks need to be placed on a counter. Meals will also typically be placed on a counter when they are finished. There are three types of counters: kitchen counters that are usable from one side; island counters that are freestanding and can double as a dining surface; and general purpose counters typically used for cash registers and certain display racks.

Counters, like chairs, are automatically hand-tool selected; starting with The Sims 2, players no longer needed to hold the ⇧ Shift key to place multiple counters down at a time. Counters can be placed around corners; if a counter is placed perpendicular to an existing row of counters, a corner-piece counter will be created where the two ends intersect. In The Sims 4, the "Automatic Counter Placement" feature needs to be disabled for this to work; when enabled, left and right end pieces, along with outer pieces for regular and island counters, are provided. Corner-piece counters can have objects placed on them, but Sims could not use said counters or any appliances placed on them until The Sims 3. Island counters can also be built around corners, though they will not automatically produce corner pieces in The Sims 4.

In The Sims 2 and The Sims 4, dishwashers and trash compactors[TS2] must be placed under a tile island counter[TS4] or a regular counter.[n 1] This is not a requirement in The Sims 3. In The Sims, dishwashers and trash compactors cannot be placed under a counter and are always standalone appliances, although objects, including plates, can be placed on top of them. A counter that has a dishwasher or trash compactor underneath cannot have sinks placed on them, as there is no room for the basin and the pipes.

Counters used for food preparation will eventually get dirty and will need to be cleaned. In The Sims 3, using a kitchen appliance placed on the counter will dirty it too.

Split
It has been suggested that this article be split into one or more articles because of the fact that these aren't counters and are more or less decorative objects.
For details and discussion, see the talk page.

Cabinets appear in The Sims 3 and The Sims 4 and are styled after their respective counter set. Regular cabinets are hung on the wall and are meant to appear above kitchen counters, while double-sided cabinets must be placed under a ceiling or inside a room. Counters are purely decorative and serve no additional purpose.
