Neighborhood decorations examples in TS2

The lighthouse, sailboat, buoy, high-rises, rocks, and trees are all examples of neighborhood decorations in The Sims 2.

Decorations (also known as clutter items or deco) are a category of items that can be used to decorate a residential or community lot, or a neighborhood/world. Depending on the content packs a player owns, the category may include, but is not limited to, rugs, house plants, posters, paintings, sculptures and statues.

Most of these objects improve the environment in varying degrees; more expensive items usually have a higher rating. In addition, some decorative objects have useful functions. For example, the scarecrow in The Sims: Unleashed can deter garden pests, and the lightning rod in The Sims 2: Seasons reduces the chance that objects (and Sims) on a lot will be struck by lightning. Most decorative objects, however, cannot be interacted with other than simply being viewed by Sims. For example, while Sims must water indoor plants in The Sims, this requirement is not carried forward to later games, and thus indoor plants have no additional interactions. Mirrors also offer different interactions, especially in The Sims 2 and later games.

From The Sims 2 onwards, decorations are available for placement in the neighborhood/world view. These typically range from birds, flora, buildings, statues, monuments, clouds, rainbows, and even trains and aircraft. Decorations cannot be placed on top of lots or roads. They are typically purely cosmetic and cannot be interacted with by Sims.

Indoor plants and decorations in TS2

An example of an assortment of indoor plants.

Decoration are divided into six categories in the buy mode catalog: plants, sculptures, wall hangings, mirrors, curtains, rugs, and miscellaneous. The miscellaneous category includes clutter recreational supplies,[TS2:FT][TS2:AL] wall ornaments, pipes, ventilation pieces,[TS2:AL] signs for community lots, ceiling-hung objects, and other items that do not fit in the other categories.

Oddly, some decorative objects that would realistically require a ceiling or wall to be hung on can be placed anywhere. These are likely oversights made by the developers.

Some notable decorative objects include:

Special itemsEdit

Certain objects that are found under deco category have unique features to them.

Open/Closed Sign of War and CommerceEdit

Open/Closed Sign of War and Commerce
OpenClosed Sign of War and Commerce
Few know the Open and Closed sign's exciting origins. During an ancient battle, the almost defeated Red Army waved a flag that read "Closed." Utterly confused, the Blue Army stopped fighting. At 9 AM the next morning, the Reds changed the banner to "Open" and went to work on their unsuspecting foes. In a world where war means business, the tradition lives on.
