How to Get an Umbrella in Sims 4
Most Sims have an aversion to rain. If you leave them to stay in the cold, they will get an Uncomfortable buff and become moody or angry. Meanwhile, Vampire Sims can also die when exposed to the sun. Providing them with an umbrella helps keep them jolly. Here’s how you can obtain an umbrella in “The Sims 4”:
- Open “Build Mode.”
- Go to “Function Sort.”
- Select “Appliances.”
- Find “Miscellaneous Appliances.”
- Locate the “Umbri Umbrella Rack” and buy it. It costs 100 Simoleons.
Alternatively, you can:
- Select “Build Mode.”
- Go to the “Search bar” and browse for an umbrella stand.
- Select “Choose a New Umbrella” to get your Sim to interact with the rack.
- Pick a parasol for your Sim to use.
Using an Umbrella in Sims 4
Once you have obtained the umbrella rack, position it anywhere inside the home. Placing it by the door side is ideal. Here’s how you can have your Sim use the umbrella:

Even though you won’t see an umbrella in your Sims’ inventory, they can use it whenever needed as long as they don’t return it to the rack. The racks are pretty cost-effective as one can cater to an entire family.
