Get the Toilet/Sink Combo
One way in which you can compact your bathroom is to condense the toilet and a sink by getting the toilet/sink combo so you fit both utilities on a single tile. To add this to your Sims' home you need to first place the toilet, then hold down the 'Alt' key to drag the sink onto the back of the toilet. No 'moveobjects' cheat is needed.
Get rid of the kitchen sink, there is no need to have a sink in the kitchen in The Sims 4: Tiny Living. Just have a sink in the bathroom and have your Sims wash their dishes there. The other alternative is to get a dishwasher where there is an in-built option for dishwashers and the counter you place them into remains usable. What this basically means is you can build a 3 tile kitchen that comprises of a cooker, fridge, dishwasher and worktop and still have space available to place a cofee machine or microwave.
The Move Objects cheat in The Sims 4: Tiny Living will allow you to place items on objects that normally don't have slots. To enable the cheat you need to open up the cheat console and type in 'bb.moveobjects' (without the quotes). This cheat lets you overlap the 'footprints' of objects so you can move them closer by using either the 0 key to bring them down or the 9 key to raise them up. It is advised if you use the Move Objects cheat you playtest things in your home in order to ensure your Sims can still interact with them normally.
If you make a split level home you will be able to cheat the tile system as it will only detect the tiles for the room with the raised floor. To make a split level home in The Sims 4: Tiny Living you need to create two rooms next to each other and raise the foundation. Once you have done this you then need to delete the floor in one of the rooms along with the wall that separates them. The foundation on the lower level of the house will still be visible so you will need to have a roof extended over it instead of a second floor placed on top of it.
The minifridge in The Sims 4: Tiny Living is a half-hieght fully functional fridge that has a space on top that objects can be placed upon. If you place a microwave on top of the minifridge you will also have the ability to produce a reasonable amount of meals using only one tile.
Due to the tile count most house designs in The Sims 4: Tiny Living are only one-floor. There is a way by using fences that you can 'cheat' an exta level. When you create a room the game will automatically create a flat roof, this roof however does not count towards your tile count and by using the fence tool you will be able to create an open-air space that you can turn into a roof terrace or a rooftop garden. It is important though that you remember not to close the fence otherwise it will be added to your tile count. All you need to do is just leave an open space on one side.
A good way to make your Sim's house not look too cramped is to take advantage of half-walls and use them in an open plan that only has one bedroom and one bathroom. Using half-walls will create handy corners which you can place furniture against and they won't make the house feel closed in.
