We all see you out there being frustrated, but luckily it is not a big problem. Truth be told, camera controls and the point and click commands have been a bit of a hassle ever since the beginning of Maxis long lived sim series. Who remembers trying to fight against the controls in The Sims? We have to get that Feng Shui to be just right, don’t we?

How to turn furniture in The Sims 4
On PC, it is straightforward: if you’re in Build/Buy mode, just click the right mouse button once the furniture you wish to rotate is selected. Keyboard shortcuts (< and >) also work. On console, you can achieve a similar effect by pressing R1 on PS4, or RB on Xbox One, to rotate clockwise. It is L1 on PS4 or LB on Xbox One to rotate the object counter-clockwise.
We are pretty sure that with these few handy tips you’ll be able to rotate objects to your heart’s content in no time, achieving that magical balance between limited space and hoarding as many useless items as you want.
