How Do You Go Upstairs in Sims 4?
The Sims 4 continues to provide players unfathomable control over the lives of their created Sims. They have the ability to choose their occupations, the individuals with whom they have children, and even the design and operation of their own residences. Obviously, if you are successful, you will want to have multiple floors. Here is how to ascend in The Sims 4.
How to Climb Stairs in Sims 4
First, it is vital to understand that there are a variety of activities you may want to accomplish in The Sims 4’s upper level of your home.
For some of you, viewing the upper level of your home to check on a sim or developing it further with the numerous design tools offered may be sufficient. Others may choose to literally carry their sims upstairs to bedtime.
Regardless of which of these you wish to accomplish, we will walk you through it below.
Simply pressing Page Up on your keyboard will enable you to view the upper story of your home. Additionally, there is an upwards arrow button in the top right corner of the screen that allows you to switch between floors. You can view this in the screenshot circled in red below.

Then, you can immediately proceed with making whatever alterations to the house that you can afford. Alternately, if you want to travel upstairs with a Sim to send them to bed, the bathroom, or whatever else is up there, you can click on the Sim’s photo at the bottom of the screen and then use the left mouse button to transport them to the desired location.
After selecting your Sim’s portrait, if there is an object you want them to interact with, simply left-click on it and select the action you want them to take. Such as, sleeping in a bed.

In The Sims 4, there is a downward arrow in the upper right corner of the screen, in the same location as the arrow that allows you to travel up through the floors of your home.
This can be located directly beneath it, and we have circled it in red in the image above. You may also use the Page Down key to navigate below.
The same principles apply when directing a Sim to travel downwards or interact with an object as they do when directing them to move upstairs.
