Minecraft is a game that allows players to build anything they can imagine. From simple houses to elaborate palaces, the possibilities are endless.
If you’re curious about what to build in Minecraft or just want to see how other people place blocks to make something beautiful, then check out these 100+ building ideas and tutorials.
102 Cool Minecraft Building Ideas In 2023
1. Modern Minecraft Mansion With a Fishing Pool
If you want to live in luxury and be the envy of your friends, then we have many more Minecraft mansion ideas on this list – let’s start strong with this Mansion Design by Rizzia, which features a relaxing fishing pool surrounded by modern decor.
Made from materials you can find all around you, the minimalist design of the mansion is certainly going to be an eye-catching one in your survival or the multiplayer world.
2. Black and White Lighthouse
You’ve built your house, your mineshaft and you’ve already got a farm, but you might be looking for something else to make your Minecraft world come to life. There are plenty of ideas you can go with, but have you considered a lighthouse for your coast to add some realism?
Here we have an excellent lighthouse design that uses easy-to-gather materials such as black and white wool, wood, and even how to make concrete in Minecraft. Of course, at night, you can see the bright yellow light shine across the world.
3. A Cosy Forest Brick House
It can get quite boring building the same old wood house over and over again when you invariably create a new Minecraft world.
The above image offers some great inspiration on how you can make your home much more interesting, and even use some new blocks, like brick and spiderwebs, to add a little bit more life.
Also, don’t forget about the surrounding area! Make sure you’re adding gravel paths and lakes filled with lily pads to further add beauty and ensure your building ideas in Minecraft actually fit in!
4. 3 Tier Stone Fountain
This 3 tier fountain can be quickly built-in under 30 minutes and will help to add some extra design to your Minecraft world that you might have been missing.
Whether it’s in the center of your town or in the middle of your courtyard, all you need to make this fountain is a variety of stone blocks that can easily be found when digging and no doubt you have an abundance of them in your storage chests already!
5. Copper Survival House
Copper blocks are one of the newest additions Minecraft has seen for quite some time. And eventually, you’re going to have stacks of the stuff lying around your base, with seemingly nothing to do with them.
But have you considered making your own copper house? Even if you don’t make it your main base, it can look pretty good in the surrounding area.
Find more details on the survival house design ideas.
6. Stone Bridge
Next on this Minecraft building ideas list, let’s talk bridge design. There’s no point ruining a beautiful world using random blocks to get over a lake, you need to create something just as beautiful when it comes to the bridge itself!
Bridges are always a good idea when considering what to build in Minecraft.
The bridge fits in perfectly with the wood and brick house combination in this small town, and if you’ve got an area similar, this will help inspire you in creative Minecraft bridge design ideas that are just as attractive.
7. Small Castle
Who doesn’t want to live in a castle? You can be the King (or queen) of your Minecraft Kingdom with this castle building. It even features farms, and an enchantment room, so it’s not just about looks!
It’s got everything you need to sustain yourself on the local land.
With a moat to keep out the angry mobs at night, you will have this building up in no time using the One Team’s tutorial.
See more Minecraft castle-building ideas.
8. Compact Starter House
There’s no point thinking too big about your Minecraft starter house design ideas. Mainly because you need some cover during the first few days to get your bearings, but also because you don’t have the blocks to build anything impressive.
The compact house design above should inspire you so you don’t have to live in a tiny dirt house in your newest survival world.
9. Automatic Frog Fountain
The automatic frog fountain can make for a great addition to your land and is at the very top of my to-do list when I’m looking for creative things to build in Minecraft especially if I live in a swamp biome.
The ‘automatic’ part is that it opens its mouth between night and day cycles, which adds a little bit of life to your land. Don’t worry about needing profound Redstone knowledge, and it’s all covered in the video!
10. Koi Pond
Fishes from Cod to Salmon can be quite soothing once you’ve caught them and put them into some form of an aquarium.
Rather than boxing them off though, why not build them their own Koi Pond so that they are free to swim around?
11. 4 Bedroom Designs
That is until I found this bedroom tutorial which allowed me to make this much more appealing.
If you’ve got a modern-style home and you’re looking for creative things to build in Minecraft, take a look at these creative bedroom designs.
12. Cabin in the Woods
This cabin in the woods is a beautiful take on a simple starter house design idea that goes way beyond the typical 1 door 4 windows design of the first house you build on your first night in Minecraft.
The best part is all you need is your local materials, and you can even add a basement to the build if you need some extra storage space for your mining resources and treasure you find out in the wilderness.
13. Mushroom House
The Mushroom Biome is one of the coolest and most exciting places to visit on Minecraft, especially since you can find mycelium there as well as the lucrative Mooshroom cows.
But if you have ever considered living there and want to blend in with the surroundings, this Mushroom house is one of the many cool things to build in the Minecraft shroom biome!
14. Gothic Cathedral
Up until now, I’ve shown you buildings that will take you either a couple of minutes or an hour or so to build.
But if you’re looking for creative things to build in Minecraft and don’t mind it being a long project, this humongous Minecraft Cathedral will be right up your alley.
Collecting the materials for this project is going to take hours upon hours, so I’d advise creating Minecraft build ideas like this one in creative mode…unless you feel up to the task!
15. Japanese Dojo
This Japanese Dojo might not be the ideal home to live in, but this is Minecraft after all, you could live instead of a dirt hole if you wanted to.
This is by far the most realistic-looking dojo I’ve seen and with a little bit of work, you can build it in your own world too.
16. Ravine House
Looking out for interesting Minecraft house ideas? Ravines are the source of many essential materials like iron, coal, copper, and diamond.
And whilst it is quite dangerous to navigate this terrain without falling to your death, clearly, they can be used to build your survival base. Which will give you easy access to the plentiful mining resources below.
17. Large Fantasy Tree House
I’ve wanted to live in a treehouse ever since I was a kid, and while that has never become a reality (for obvious reasons), at the very least use this Minecraft treehouse design to build one in my Minecraft world. You can too!
This treehouse perfectly blends in with the environment so it looks completely natural, as if it has been there for many years – with a bit of creativity, you’ll be able to fit it in your own Minecraft world too.
18. Full Survival Base
You might be thinking about a house, a couple of crops, and possibly even an enchant room for your first base.
But what about this complete Minecraft survival house idea, which offers everything you need; unlimited food, access to mining resources, and plenty of storage space for all of your ores?
Best of all it is just going to take your local wood and a couple of stacks of stone to get it built.
19. Nether Sword Portal
If you’re looking for an exciting way to incorporate the Nether Portal into your world while adding an attractive feature to your Minecraft base that could have a whole story/lore around it, then build this Nether Sword Portal.
This is by far one of the most interesting things to build in Minecraft I have seen in a long while, and right after I’ve finished writing this article I’m going to add it to my personal survival world.
20. Village Decorations
You’ve built a barn, you’ve got a tavern and you’ve just finished making your jail but there seems to be something missing?
Every great Minecraft village idea needs decorations to tie everything together, and this video has inspired me.
21. Secret Redstone Mountain Base
Whether you want to hide from your friends or the mobs of the night, having a safe and secure base that utilizes Redstone will help you achieve this.
The secret Minecraft mountain house idea is precisely what you should be looking to build.
22. Working Hammock
Getting creative with blocks in Minecraft can allow you to construct things that shouldn’t really be possible.
This working hammock, for example, can be a great addition to a park area or a yard in your town. It’s at the very top of my personal “cool things to build in Minecraft” list, that’s for sure.
23. Geode Base
If you’re looking for a base that’s a little unusual, but very much practical and pretty, then taking advantage of the new Geode spawns in the recent Caves & Cliffs update will be a great idea.
Above, you can see how you can flesh out the bright purple Geode spawn to create a beautiful base underground.
24. Wooden Survival House
A wooden survival home will be your first base, but it doesn’t have to be all boxes and boring as Minecraft house ideas usually are.
I would use the above design to provide inspiration so the next time you build your very first home in your survival world, and it can look way better than usual.
25. Large Modern House
Although this base utilizes rare minerals like quartz blocks, it is worth the investment if you want to have yourself a modern home.
With plenty of natural elements to help the home blend into a forestry area, this is perfect for anyone looking for Minecraft mansion design ideas and wants to live in a Minecraft mansion in their survival world.
26. Minecraft Modern Kitchen Design
I’ve covered quite a few exterior builds already, but don’t neglect the inside of your buildings.
This Minecraft modern kitchen design should help you understand how your kitchen should look to suit a modern building.
27. Suburban Home
Although it might look a little out of place in a standard Minecraft world, if you’re building a story to be played in adventure mode and looking for a Suburban style home to fit in, this is a design you should copy!
28. Master Bedroom
If you’re looking for more interesting Minecraft bedroom designs than just a bed in a square room, I think you’ll like this master bedroom idea.
It incorporates a lot of blocks to give variation as well as paintings and armors stand to add even more detail.
29. Worlds Smallest Base
I’ve featured large bases and even huge projects that could take you hours upon hours to complete…but how about the world’s smallest base?
If you play Minecraft as efficiently as possible, this might be a good idea.
30. Small Church
Having a center building in your town can really help to tie everything together, and there are a lot of designs and ideas you can go with but I really liked this church one and I think it will inspire a lot of you.
A Minecraft building like this can also add a layer of depth to your world. Perhaps you could create a backstory around it all, maybe it represents a cult your townspeople are a part of? Or a mythical being that they worship? Just like Minecraft, the opportunities are endless!
31. Axolotl Fountain
Axolotls are my favorite creature in Minecraft, so building a fountain based on these beautiful sea creatures just seemed like the right thing to do. Above you can see how it turned out, thanks to Goldrobin guiding me of course.
If you want to make it your own, I’d suggest swapping out the main blocks for your favorite shade of Axolotl; pink (pink wool), yellow (sponge could work), or blue (Cyan concrete).
32. Underwater Mountain House
Minecraft oceans, especially using the best shader packs, can look gorgeous. But usually, you never really build anything near them as the water can be tiresome to navigate without drowning or making life really annoying.
There are many cool things to build in Minecraft, and this underwater mountain base offers ocean views without needing to make on top of or even in the water, just dig out the mountain, and you’ve got a place you can call home!
33. Small Yellow Cafe
If you’ve built a bustling city and you’re looking to add some buildings that can really tie the place together without needing you to acquire all sorts of different blocks and using up a whole host of space, then this Cafe is going to be a great addition.
You can either use this as pure inspiration or you can follow HALNY’s guide to build a 1 for 1 in your own world.
If you’re looking for easy things to build in Minecraft that will have a great effect on your world, this is definitely it.
34. Bookshelf Statue
Every great world needs a library to store your lore books or even just keep track of the small adventures you go on every time you log in.
While building a library can seem like a good idea, it can be quite boring to have the same thing world after world, that’s why I’d use this bookshelf statue. So your library can be on a bookshelf!
Minecraft players (me included) tend to stay far away from ocean biomes when it comes to building anything. Simply because the water can be quite tedious to work around. But this lakehouse makes this task very much worth it.
If you want a home that isn’t going to be bothered by the mobs of the night and you want a building that is a little different, then use this as inspiration for the next time you log in!
36. Squidward’s House
Spongbob was a big part of a lot of people’s childhoods. And we’ve probably always wanted to live in bikini bottoms too!
Building Squidward’s house can make you feel like you’re almost there, and it won’t even take you too long – you just need some wool and a bit of wood to get it entirely constructed.
37. Cute Minecraft House
Looking for cute things to build in Minecraft? This cute little house should provide some inspo!
The builder has used a great combination of blocks to keep everything varied as well as decorating the place with natural decor like vines and plants to help it fit into the grassy woodland area.
Notice how they also decorate the area of their home? This helps to work your building into the environment so it looks natural as if it has been there the whole time!
38. Japanese Torii Gate
This next idea might look out of place in many survival worlds. Still, if you’ve already got some Minecraft Japanese-style building projects complete and you’re looking for another addition, then this Japanese-inspired Torii gate will be a must add.
And the best part is it won’t take you long to build, you could feature a couple around the place to really bring the style to all aspects of your Japanese-style Minecraft world.
39. Tall Mediaeval House
Sick of the identical old boxy houses you’re always living in? Then this medieval house should inspire as to how you should go about making your next Minecraft home – using all of the natural materials around you, and you can create a building that is going to be beautiful and practical.
40. Underwater Village Statute
The Underwater Village Statue is the perfect accent piece for your underwater base or wherever you reside.
You might die a couple of times trying to farm the blocks from the monuments in the ocean, but it’s definitely going to be worth all the effort once this build has been completed.
41. Mushroom Building
Mushrooms are one of the coolest but rarest animals in Minecraft. Mostly because you have to go out into the wilderness to find the Biome where they call home. And then you have to somehow lead the animal ALLLLL the way back to your home.
Instead, why not build a Mooshroom head? Perhaps you could use it to keep your Minecraft farm animals or it could be purely for decoration – whatever its purpose, this is one of the ideal cute things to build in Minecraft survival!
42. Steampunk Watermill
Whilst the watermill will never actually turn, it does provide a touch of realism to any town or city you’re creating.
This has been inspired by steampunk and individualism, so if you’re a fan of either of these themes, then go ahead and add the Steampunk Watermill to your world.
43. Bunker Base
In this article, we’ve talked about living in mountains, on the water, and even right up in the sky. But what about if you want to live underground, like a hermit?
The best part of this Bunker Base is that you still get the natural light of the overworld, and the benefit of being underground is that it provides access to useful mining materials.
44. Nordic Blacksmith House
I am obsessed with Nordic themes in Minecraft, and I think this blacksmith design symbolizes everything I love; ornate wooden designs featuring small but crucial details that bring everything together such as the spider webs on the roof that make it look like there is actual smoke coming out of the chimney.
The best part is that getting materials for this project won’t take too much hassle since it’s just wood and concrete material, which is all around you.
45. Cake Statue
Looking for easy things to build in Minecraft?
This cake statue is a great decoration piece if you’ve got a wacky and wonderful Minecraft world but it can also be used to symbolize where you keep all of your food.
So if your friends are ever hungry, they know exactly where to look instead of wasting time rummaging through endless chests.
46. Bonfire and Camping Setup
If you’re looking for a cozy place to stay for the night or want to add decor to the forest area you reside in, have you considered adding a bonfire and camping gear to spruce up the place?
47. Double Modern Tree House
Treehouses never give you all the room you need to live independently, but with the above design, you can essentially branch to different trees indefinitely.
48. Modern Quartz House
Quartz is a very expensive resource and is very dangerous to acquire (you need to traverse the Nether to get your hands on it) but as time goes on you’ll have an abundance of it…so why not make use of all those quartz in your treasure chest and make a modern quartz house?
Modern homes can look out of place in your Minecraft home, but if you incorporate things like leaves and sugar cane into the build, they can look like they belong. As does the one above.
49. Venom Pixel Art
So far I’ve featured builds that you can live in. And whilst you can’t live in this building, you can add it to your world to give some decor.
This especially should be up there on your project list if you love Venom from Spiderman as much as I do.
50. Jolteon Pixel Art
Just like the above building design, whilst you can’t live in it, you can add it to your world to show your friends how much you love Pokemon and specifically Jolteon.
If you’re looking for cute things to build in Minecraft and you love pixel art, this is definitely it!
51. Dark Kingdom Windmill
Windmills can be a great addition to any farmland or just a place you call home to add a little bit more life to the area.
This ‘dark’ themed windmill however will make for a much better addition to any corrupted or tainted land you’re building, as part of a story or just because you feel like being evil.
52. Underground Survival Base
I’ve already featured an underground survival base/house idea, but this particular underground survival base is complete with farming patches, animal barns, and other essentials like ample automatic storage and enchantment rooms.
This is by far one of the coolest things to build in Minecraft if you love utilizing space as I do.
Also see: 10 Best Minecraft Animal Farm Ideas
53. Island Separated Skybase
Living on the ground is overrated. Why not make your own skybase? You can be free of all those angry mobs that can kill you, blow you up and you can have a cool base that no one else can get to.
There is no one way to do this correctly, but Overman’s tutorial can at least inspire you on how you should go about making your own Skybase in Minecraft.
Though if you haven’t got your Elytra from the End yet, I’d suggest implementing a way you can actually get up there in the first place!
54. Arcade Style Castle
Although the original design of this castle is inspired by the Clash of Clans, even if you don’t play the mobile hit, I still think it can inspire you if you’re looking to build more “arcadey” style projects in your Minecraft world.
55. Large Steampunk House
If you want to feel like you rule the world (which you technically already do if you’re playing solo survival) building a steampunk house like this one will make you feel like a King/Queen.
It goes far beyond looks, as it provides you with plenty of room for all of the resources you’ve collected on your travels.
56. Wooden Greenhouse
Not every building needs to have an actual purpose, some can just be beautiful for the sake of being beautiful, and this Wooden Greenhouse represents this.
There are no uses for greenhouses in Minecraft, but as you can see from the image above they can really tie a whole area together.
57. Cute Pet Shop
This cute pet shop will be perfect for a small town or just a place where you can show off all the pets you’ve gathered while playing Minecraft.
It shouldn’t take too long to build, needing mostly wool.
58. Gas Station
There are no cars in Minecraft and never will be (unless you use mods), but that doesn’t mean a gas station shouldn’t be your next building project.
It can fit into your large town project or you can just build it because, why not?
59. Pharmacy/Hospital Building
If you get injured in Minecraft, all you need to do is eat a bit of food (like pork or chicken) and then just wait around for your health to regenerate naturally. No need to go to a hospital.
But the following Pharmacy building could still make a great addition to your city if you want to add realism.
60. Pegasus Fountain
Every Minecraft town needs a fountain! Though building a simple fountain with a bit of running water might not exactly cut it, and be the ideal center point of your city.
Why not build a Pegasus fountain in your Minecraft world?
All you need is stone bricks which can easily be acquired by smelting cobblestone and of course a few blocks of quartz from the Nether to build the actual Pegasus.
Even if you don’t go with the original design, perhaps you could instead build another mystical being in its place to make it suit the design of your world.
61. Wooden Country Tavern
Building a wooden country Tavern like this one might take some time, but it will give you everything you need to survive off the land; shelter over your head, a place for animals, land for your crops, and space to mine in.
62. Mountain House
A mountain house is usually my go-to choice as the outside design is very simple and easy to pull off, even for someone like me who is constantly looking for things to build in Minecraft survival despite being terrible at it.
As you can see, this simple yet beautiful Minecraft mountain house design can inspire even the worst of builders like me to make something practical and not too harsh on the eye.
By far an easy thing to build in Minecraft if you’re new to the building aspect of the game.
63. Large Kingdom Clock Tower
Whilst this large kingdom clock tower isn’t going to keep track of the time in your world, or in real life.
It can provide a great center point in your town, or at the very least help to convince anyone that visits that you’ve got a living and breathing city going on in your world.
64. Large Natural Mountain House
Another one of my go-to designs for when I make a new survival world is mountain houses because you only need to bother with the look of the front of the house, and then the back and be as ugly as you want it to be as it’s closed away!
This base can be constructed out of wood that’s all around you and you can add personal details like vines and plants to add some extra life to the project.
65. Wooden and Stone Farmhouse
Farmland can look really out of place at times, especially when it’s just surrounded by a wooden or stone fence.
Also, there is the other issue that you don’t really have a place to put all the crops you’ve harvested unless you want to leave chests lying everywhere…
One way to solve this problem is by building a farmhouse like the one above! It fits in perfectly with the surrounding landscape, and it just adds a lot more realism to the farming area of the world.
66. Bee House
Something a little different! Forget wooden houses, stone houses, or even mushroom houses. Why not live in your very own bee house? Yes..bee house!
Of course, bees are one of the newest additions to Minecraft, allowing you to farm your own honey which can be used in crafting and Redstone traps.
But if you love bees even more than just keeping them as pets, check out this bee house-building tutorial!
67. Large Ship
Of course, blocks don’t really move in this game. So, unfortunately, you can’t take this ship exploring with you (without mods that is). However, at the very least it can add some life to your harbor area and make your town or city feel like it’s actually living and breathing even if that is not the reality.
Building a large ship like this one will take plenty of time and resources, but the result, as you can see above, can be very worth it.
68. Fish Store
The fish store is another cute little building you can add to your world that is going to add a sense of realism to your city or village area. Or you can use it to display all the fantastic fish you’ve gathered over your adventure.
69. Tent House
The tent house is reasonably easy to build and perfect for a new world as you can get the shelter and the space you need to progress to the end game. Not to mention that this gives you an alternative building to a dirt hut or a wooden house you’d typically build.
70. Boat House
The boathouse provides you with a unique home that allows you to live on the water whilst offering plenty of room for storage, a potion room, and an enchantment room.
Whilst water can be annoying to do anything on Minecraft, this boathouse provides an excellent way for you to live in the ocean surrounded by tropical fishes and coral.
71. Ramen Cart
I absolutely love Ramen, so when I found this building tutorial on YouTube I just knew I had to get it built in my own world.
The Ramen cart can be a great way to show your friends where you keep your food in an exciting and creative way.
72. High class Victorian House
Want to feel posh or even like a King? The High-class Victorian house is going to be the perfect main property for your world.
You will have room to store all of the resources you’ve farmed as well as any treasures you’ve got from the Underworlds fortresses or Bastion monuments.
73. Turtle Island
Sick of building in the Desert, Swamp, or even Woodland biomes?
Want to make your world a lot more interesting? Then we think this Turtle Base is going to be an inspiring idea and certainly worthy of your next project!
As you can see, the turtle appears to be carrying a piece of an island on its back, which gives you plenty of room to build your custom Minecraft house on top of it, or anything else for that matter.
74. Floating Castle
Looking for your next big project? This floating castle will keep you busy.
By the end of it, you’ll have a mythical castle in your world that you can call your home – whilst it’s not one of the easiest things to build in Minecraft survival, it’s going to be absolutely worth it.
75. Double Oriental House
The double Minecraft Japanese house idea will be the perfect build if you’re looking for a starting point for a new city or town you’re building in your world.
It utilizes natural resources found in the overworld as well as natural resources found in the underworld to create a beautiful contrasting look.
76. Market Stall
Although there is no functional trade system like in an RPG game in Minecraft (again, unless you have mods) there is still a great purpose behind market stalls like the one above; to add some decor and depth to your world.
If you run a Kingdom, own a City, or live in a small town on your friend’s survival server or on your own creative world, then the above-market stall should be at the top of your list to implement into your project.
77. Nether Inspired Town Hall
If you’re looking for your next big project, and you want it to have an ‘evil feel’, perhaps you’re looking for something that fits in with the lore of your world or the story you’re trying to tell in adventure mode, then this Townhall should be the next fun thing you build in Minecraft.
78. Basic Wooden House
It can be easy to overwhelm yourself with large building projects, especially when you are looking for what to build in Minecraft in terms of the house you’re going to live in.
Above is one of my favorite simple house ideas in Minecraft to build when I just want to survive the dark nights and free myself from the spooky hostile mobs outside.
Although it’s simple, the design is much better than the blocky, square house you’re no doubt residing in right now as you read this.
79. Steampunk Tower
The Steampunk tower is a devilish-looking build that you should construct if you’re looking to start a corruption/tainted world. It will fit right in.
It uses Nether blocks and dark wood to give it its uneasy look and by for one of the best Minecraft build ideas I’ve come across on Grabcraft!
80. Large Animal Barn
Make a quick fence out of wood, put your animals in and then call it a day. That’s what I usually do when I want to keep animals safe from the night.
And while it does work, I have found a much better way of keeping them safe, using this large animal barn video to help me create something beautiful and functional.
81. Island Fortress
Another ocean design I like to lean towards when I’m looking to build a remarkable building in Minecraft is this Island Fortress.
Now it can take some time to build, but it provides you with all the space you need to store your goodies and expand when you need to if you want to add extra rooms for creating potions and keeping farm animals.
82. Wizard Tower
Want more interesting Minecraft builds to construct? Wizard towers can be a grand addition to any forest or swamp biome in your Minecraft world.
I typically like to use this Wizard Tower video for guidance as it incorporates a lot of unique blocks that I never usually use in my builds.
83. Forest Nether Portal
Your nether portal is going to be a useful tool for you to progress in the game but it can look really ugly and out of place in your world, especially if you live in a forest.
The above build should provide some inspiration on how you can incorporate the underworld portal much better into your project.
It’s one of the best Minecraft builds, including the Nether portal. Follow our guide on how to make a Nether portal in Minecraft to get the ultimate results.
84. Wooden Steampunk Tall Tower
This steampunk tower is unique, cool, and definitely not something you see every day when you’re playing on all of the Minecraft servers available.
If you’re into Steampunk designs, this is definitely a house you should make your permanent residence, once you go through with building it of course.
I especially like the tree right at the top of the tower which acts as a great accent finish. You could even extend the tower to as tall as you want, maybe even using some of the sky bases on this list as inspiration.
85. Mining Entrance
A hole in the mountain works fine as an entrance to your mineshaft, but it can be quite nice to spice things up a little and just make it a lot easier on the eye…even if you don’t need to you might as well add some style to a place you’re going to be visiting on the daily.
Above is my own take on a mining entrance. Of course, there’s no need to copy it like for like, but it should help give you some inspiration with your own mineshaft; make sure to incorporate different styles of blocks, and of course, don’t forget about lighting it up with lamps!
86. Abstract House
If you’re looking to build a home that is completely modern but that is definitely unique and unlike you’ve ever seen before in Minecraft, this abstract house should be your next huge project in this game.
It’s definitely going to make a lot of effort, but by the end, you’re going to be left with a creative masterpiece that will leave you the envy of all of your Minecraft friends.
And since it’s to separate buildings, that means two separate bases for yourself or one for your best friend.
87. Mediaeval Large Bridge
If you’re looking for something extravagant to do in your medieval-style Minecraft world, then this large wooden and stone bridge should inspire you with all the inspiration you need.
Personally, even with a guide, I’d struggle to complete this build due to how hard it would be to build in solo because of how tall it is and the blocks required. More power to you if you can pull it off!
88. Stone Arch Bridge
There are a couple of modern buildings on this list already, and if you choose to design any of them a great complementing project could be a modern arch bridge that will help to fit the theme of your world.
It will take plenty of stone (and plenty of patience) to build this bridge, but by the end, you’ll be able to get from A to B much more straightforward and, of course, in style. See more Minecraft bridge ideas.
89. Tiny Stone House
I’ve featured some pretty gigantic builds up until now, but I’d thought I’d add this little tiny house as inspiration but also a reminder that big isn’t always better.
If you build this Minecraft house in your survival world, you’ll have a home base up and running in no time so you can get back to what you love; exploring!
90. Realistic Fire Station
Sure you can’t get into the fire truck and put out that forest fire right near your Minecraft house, but at least it adds something unique to your town or city that will add a sense of realism to the whole area.
The Fire station is also detailed with a Minecraft interior design that reflects real life and you can add anything else you think is missing from the original design or that might be unique to your own town.
91. Wooden Swamp Bridge
Swamps can be a very peaceful place to live in Minecraft, but it can take a lot of mini-building projects to make sure that the area is complemented properly.
One of the things I always like to add is a wooden bridge that decorates the area but also adds practicalness so I can get to where I need to go.
This is very easy to build, and you just need to harvest the wood that is all around you to begin your build. Feel free to add lanterns and even vines to add a little bit more decor to the build.
92. Huge Skybase
I’ve already featured a skybase on this list, but I want to feature one that might take you some extra time but is absolutely worth it. If you’re looking to make a skybase your main hub area for your world, then the above example is definitely it.
You should tackle things your own way, as this sort of design might not fit into your current world, but if you want to make a like for like then check out TheMythicalSausage video on this sky house project.
93. Decorative Dirt House
Dirt houses might not be at the top of the list when it comes to ‘beautiful buildings’ in Minecraft, but the one above might be able to change your mind.
Of course, this is going to be pretty simple to build since there is dirt all around you, and because it’s meant to look ‘unique’ it can easily be changed and adjusted to fit in with your Minecraft world.
If you’ve got the resources, you can add bookcases, enchantment tables, and anything else to make it more practical…though if you’re looking for dirt house inspo, you probably don’t have those sorts of things quite yet.
94. Enchanting Table Statue
Just like the other ‘block builds’ on this list, this enchantment table statue can either be used as Minecraft decoration ideas for your world, or it can be a place where you put your enchanting tools like the enchanting table, experience farm, diamond tools, books, and anvils!
95. Tie Fighter
If you love Star Wars or just all things space, this next building is going to be perfect for your save file.
You could use it as your personal base, or you could just add it to your world to make things a little more interesting, either way, this Tie Fighter is going to add some jaw-dropping design to the whole area.
Though, you’re going to need about 2000 blocks to fully complete this amazing piece, from red wool to red stone.
96. Chicken Farm
This next Minecraft building idea is a little different since you can’t really live in it but it will provide some use when added to your Minecraft world.
Essentially this chicken farm allows you to get unlimited food so that you can worry about your next building projects and not your next meal.
It takes a little bit of time to get it set up, but it’s very worth it. A lot of automated farms on Minecraft can look pretty ugly, this one is a great alternative.
97. Victorian Castle
Victorian-themed buildings translate so well into Minecraft, as you can see from this large Victorian castle. It features woodblocks, concrete, and even gold blocks to give the place a little bit of glam.
This will be a big project to pull off, but by the end of it, you’ll have an extravagant Minecraft castle to live in.
Oh, and you’ll probably need plenty of Minecraft bedroom ideas to fill those rooms!
98. Pumpkin House
If concrete and wooden houses aren’t really your thing and you’re looking for something a little different that is fun to build, then this Pumpkin house will be just what you’re after.
Even if you just use this building to keep your automatic pumpkin farm in, it can be a spooky addition to your farming plot.
You’re going to need about 500+ jack o’lanterns to fully complete this design, so get farming!
99. Gingerbread House
Whether it’s the holiday season as you’re reading this, or you’re just looking for something to put in the snowy biome you reside in, this gingerbread house is going to be a treat.
Made from practically all of the different colors of a wool block, placing a couple of these around would help to add plenty of color and vibrant style.
100. Large Custom Tree
Whilst trees are an essential part of any Minecraft world as they can add character and natural elements, they are on the smaller side and are pretty much copied and pasted across the world.
This huge mage-inspired tree can add some much-needed variation and makes for a great central point in your town.
101. Dwarven Portal Room
Nether portals can look really out of place, not to mention the annoying noise they can make if you build one too close to your base.
Above is a unique nether portal design in the style of dwarven themes. Whilst this might not be the ideal design for you, allow it to inspire you the next time you’re making a portal to the underworld.
102. Rustic House
Similar to other Minecraft build ideas featured on this list, this rust home uses logs, wood planks, and a variety of stone blocks to supply you with a large Minecraft house that you can grow into. It has plenty of room for storage, potion brewing, and smelting!
If you need any more space, copy the style and add your own extension on.
The Minecraft world is a limitless space where you can do anything. There are millions of different unique buildings to create and explore.
Whether your goal is building something that looks like it could exist in real life or creating an enormous hybrid animal, there’s bound to be at least a few Minecraft Building ideas you’ve come across in this post that you’re just aching to create in your own Minecraft world!
