If you’ve ever played Minecraft, the world’s most popular modular building game, you’ve probably noticed that your virtual home is less furnished than your real-life home. To fix this, you’ll need to learn how to make virtual furniture with your game resources. This article includes tutorials for building six different home appliances and pieces of furniture for your Minecraft home.
6 Minecraft Household Appliances
In Minecraft, making a couch is a relatively simple process. Although your character is unable to sit, this piece of furniture will look fantastic in your home.
- A minimum of two stair blocks is required.
- 2 indications
Note: That you’ll need at least two stair blocks because one stair block will automatically create a chair. You’ll need two or more to make a couch.
- Arrange the stair blocks so that they are next to each other.
- Attach a sign to each stair block’s end. You should now have a couch similar to the one shown above.
In your Minecraft kitchen, a refrigerator is definitely a useful appliance. What’s even better is that it actually works. I’m sure you’re thinking: “In Minecraft, there’s a working refrigerator? Impossible!” While you won’t be able to create an exact replica of a refrigerator in the game, you can get pretty close.
- Two wrought-iron blocks
- A single button
- A single dispenser
- Eat whatever you want
- Place 1 iron block on the floor against a wall.
- Before laying the second iron block on top, break the block in the wall that will be behind it. Have you seen the image above? To allow the dispenser to take its place, the block behind the top iron block must be destroyed.
- Place the second iron block on top of the first and fill the dispenser with the food of your choice. Your dispenser will be out of sight.
- Finally, sew the button into the shirt’s front. Voila! When you press the button, food will be delivered to you immediately. Isn’t it cool?
A sink can be made relatively quickly with a few basic materials. Although your sink will not function, its appearance will help to complete the look of your kitchen.
- 1 gallon of water
- 1 cauldron
- 1 pulley
- Place the cauldron in the location where you want your sink to be.
- Fill the cauldron with water and suspend the lever above it (for display purposes only). It should resemble the image above. If desired, multiple cauldrons can be placed next to each other to create different sink basins.
The television is a must-have in any living room, and it’s also one of Minecraft’s most adaptable creations. There are so many television designs that covering them all in this article would be impossible. For the time being, I’ll just show you a basic television design with a few optional components to add authenticity.
- 4–6 obsidian or black wool blocks (feel free to increase the number of blocks if you want a larger TV).
- Other blocks and/or a bookcase (for the entertainment center in which the TV sits)
- 1 piece of artwork
- 1 lever or button (optional)
- Redstone is a type of redstone that is (optional)
- Lamps made of redstone (optional)
Procedure (For a Basic TV)
- Place the blocks you’ll be using as an entertainment center on the ground first. In the example image above, chest and bookcase blocks are used.
- Then, on top of that, place the black wool or obsidian blocks.
- Finally, place a painting of your choice over these blocks, centered to resemble a television screen. That concludes the discussion.
Procedure (For a More Realistic TV)
The television, as seen in the image above, is made up of two x four blocks, for a total of eight blocks. Here’s what you’ll need to make a working, lit television:
- Refer to the illustration above. Only the two outer blocks on each side remain after breaking the center four blocks.
- Redstone lamps should be used to replace the broken blocks.
- Cover these four blocks with a painting.
- You should be able to use redstone to power these lamps by now. Return to 1 entertainment center block with the redstone dust trail and place a button or a lever on that block. If you pressed a button on the lower bookcase block in the example above, the redstone dust would power the lamps behind your painting and turn on your television screen!
Note: Because buttons only provide temporary lighting, it’s best to use a lever for this type of thing. As long as the levers are turned on, the light will stay on.
Tables can be made in a variety of ways. I’ll show you two in this article. Don’t worry; if you don’t have version 1.8, these tables will still work.
Supplies (Table Style 1)
- 1 single pressure plate
- 1 single fence
Procedure (Table Style 1)
- Place the fence where you want your table to be on the ground. It will give you something that looks like a pole. This is due to the fact that an entire fence requires at least two fence blocks.
- After you’ve installed the fence block, cover it with a pressure plate of your choice to create a small table. By repeating these steps, you can make larger tables with this method.
Supplies (Table Style 2)
- A piston or several pistons
- A redstone torch or several redstone torches
Steps to take (Table Style 2)
- Refer to the illustration above. Determine the size of your table, then break the required number of floor blocks. Break two-floor blocks if the table is only two blocks wide.
- Place a redstone torch after breaking another block deep.
- Placing your piston above the torch is a good idea. The piston will eject, forming a table-like structure.
- If you want to make the table bigger, repeat the process.
Without a fireplace, what home would be complete? It adds a touch of sophistication to your home. “Hey, I put in a lot of effort to break these blocks and build this house, so I deserve some ambiance,” it says. That’s fine and dandy, but if your home is made of wood, be cautious. If built incorrectly, a fireplace can quickly burn down a wooden house.
- Netherrack is a type of block.
- Blocks of bricks (or block of your choice; this will be the actual fireplace)
- Steel and flint
- Bars made of iron (optional)
- Refer to the illustration above. I didn’t specify a specific number of blocks for you to collect because the fireplace is a versatile design that can be made in a variety of ways.
- Remember to set the nether rack blocks down where you’ll be building your fire.
- Build up brick blocks (or other blocks) behind the nether rack as a safety measure to ensure that the fire has no way of escaping and make sure that the fireplace’s backing is not flammable.
- When you’re done with the fireplace, light the flint and steel with the flint and steel.
- Iron bars can be used to block the front of your fireplace (if desired).
