Because of the massive popularity of Stardew Valley, the farm life simulation game is available on several different platforms, such as PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. As each has different mechanics, the controls aren’t exactly the same. With the 1.5 update, we can now place furniture outside, increasing its usability. However, without an in-game guide, turning things around can be quite difficult. Here’s how to rotate furniture in Stardew Valley.

Tips for Rotating Furniture in Stardew Valley

If you want more furniture, I recommend going to Robin’s at the Carpenter Shop, located in the Mountains, where she’ll sell different items every day.

If you want unlimited access, it’s a good investment to buy the furniture catalog, which can also be bought from Robin’s. It provides almost every furniture item, and it’s more convenient as you can access it from your house.
