New Lot Type
The Sims 4 Tiny Living introduces a new residential lot type called “Tiny Home Residential”. The focus of this new lot type is to bring some challenge to building in The Sims 4, giving players three new home tiers to build: Small, Tiny, and Micro.
While each tier has maximum tile restrictions, they all require at least 4 tiles minimum. The smallest tier allows for up to 32 tiles and the largest tier allows for up to 100 tiles on the lot. Foundations, Basements, and Decks all count towards the Total Tile Count.
The following Requirements are in place for each tier:
Micro Home (Tier #1) Requirements – At least 4 tiles minimum, 32 tiles max.
Tiny Home (Tier #2) Requirements – At least 4 tiles minimum, 64 tiles max.
Small Home (Tier #3) Requirements – At least 4 tiles minimum, 100 tiles max.
The game will not prevent you from placing tiles in excess of the maximum, but the added benefits and rewards that come with using a Tiny Home Residential Lot will not activate unless and until you come within the tile limit count.
Venue Lot Rewards
The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff rewards special lot traits for players who build within the tile counts available for each Tiny Home Residential tier. The smaller the lot, the more rewards. There are 6 venue rewards available, with each providing unique benefits to Sims who live in the home. The following Venue Lot Rewards are available:
The Sims 4 Tiny Living adds one new Pre-Built Lot that you can add into any world. This lot can be found by selecting the “My Library” option in The Sims 4 Gallery.

The Sims 4 Tiny Living adds some new interactive objects. These objects allow for new game play not previously available in game. Details on these objects below.
The Sims 4 Tiny Living introduces new interactive entertainment objects to the game to save space in a tiny home. The TV/Stereo/Bookshelf combo objects allow for maximum space saving without compromising entertainment. Sims will be able to watch TV, listen to the Stereo, and purchase/read Books with these objects.
To accommodate a tiny lifestyle, the Murphy Bed can be used to make the most of your limited space. Unlike a normal bed, Sims can use a remote control to open and close the Murphy Bed, allowing for more floor space when closed.
Available in Build Mode are different versions of the Murphy Bed that provide for different aesthetic and function. The following variations are available:
- The ‘Now You See It, Now You Don’t’ Murphy Bed (§2,100) is just a simple Murphy Bed.
- The ‘Now You See It, Now You Don’t’ Murphy Bed Loveseat Combo (§2,100) turns into a Couch when the Bed is put up in vertical position.
- The Schmooze and Snooze (§2,400) is a Murphy Bed that also turns into a Couch when the bed is put up in vertical position. It also includes a functional Bookshelf at the end.
- The Snore and Store (§2,700) is a simple Murphy Bed with a Bookshelf on either side.
The Murphy Bed functions the same as a regular Bed when it is put down horizontally, which allows Sims to sit, sleep, and nap on it. However, there are a few quirks to it. For instance, a Sim can receive an Inspired +1 “One With the Remote” moodlet simply for successfully putting a Murphy Bed up.
But there are some dangers when it comes to using a Murphy Bed. They can break randomly, causing them to smoke and spark. If a Sim is sleeping in a broken Murphy Bed, they can find themselves swallowed by the bed due to sudden and unexpected closure. After such a traumatic event, the Sim will receive an Uncomfortable +2 “Swallowed by Bed” moodlet, which will temporarily make them not trust beds. With this moodlet they will not be able to sleep in a Bed because they need time to “reflect and heal.”
Sims can also be crushed by the Murphy Bed while attempting to put the Bed down to the floor. Even if the Bed is not broken, it can get stuck while the Sim is trying to put it down. When this happens they will try to manually pull it down themselves, which causes them to be smacked against the floor. As a result, they receive the Uncomfortable +2 “Stuck Under Murphy Bed” moodlet.
Luckily, Murphy Beds can be upgraded to prevent further bed-related injuries. Just like with other beds, the Murphy Bed can be upgraded to include Massage Controls and improve the Mattress Firmness. However, there are two other upgrades exclusive to Murphy Beds.
A Sim with level 3 Handiness and 4 Common Upgrade Parts can upgrade the Murphy Bed to be “Spring Loaded”, which will reduce how often the bed breaks. At level 8 handiness, Sims can use 3 Common Upgrade Parts and 3 Electronic Upgrade Parts to add “Reinforced Spring Wiring”, which will make the Murphy Bed unbreakable.
Death by Murphy Bed
The Sims 4 Tiny Living has added a new way to die in the game: Death by Murphy Bed. This death is inflicted upon Sims who get crushed under the Murphy Bed when trying to put it down. Repeated impact by the bed results in Sims dying from their injuries.
The Ghosts of Sims who died by Murphy Bed will emit faint “Z’s” from their body, which is the same symbol emitted when Sims are sleeping.
Being that these Ghosts died from the very object that is supposed to provide a good night’s sleep, Ghosts who died by Murphy Bed have a special interaction available called “Possess For Energy”. Using this on the target Sim will drain the victim Sim of all of their energy, causing them to pass out. This energy will be absorbed by the Ghost.
Murphy Bed Ghosts can also “Wake Up and Warn!” a Sim that is sleeping in a broken Murphy Bed in an attempt to protect them from possibly being swallowed by it.
Build/Buy Mode Objects
The Sims 4 Tiny Living Stuff includes 39 buy and build mode items. This includes objects, build items, styled rooms, and every other item that was included with the game. The slideshow below contains 36 of these objects, with the “Styled Rooms” listed right below.
The slideshow begins with the “Space-Saving Single” and ends with the “Now You See It, Now You Don’t’ Murphy Bed Loveseat Combo”. If you prefer to view the images individually, check out the album on Flickr.
