It can be difficult for Minecraft players to create an area, whether a home or a village, that truly feels alive.
Although you can add things such as paintings to make your interior, hang your favorite items using item frames, or place plant pots around the place to add some natural design – sometimes these things don’t quite cut it.
With Minecraft’s lack of furniture, it is hard to find ways to customize your builds with more than just blocks and dirt. Luckily, there are many Minecraft decoration ideas that allow you to add some decorative style to anything you’re building.
We are going to bring you the 10 best Minecraft decoration ideas so that you can make your building projects feel more complete.
Best Minecraft decoration ideas or designs
1. Village Flower Stall
You’ve built houses, a blacksmith, and a couple of farms. But your village just doesn’t feel complete, am I right? Well, how about adding this village stall so that you can give the feeling of your village actually being alive.
This is a great addition to any Minecraft village and it’s easy to make. All you need is a stack of wooden logs of your choice (depending on the style of your village) and if you want to add some extra style, natural blocks like leaves and plant pots.
You can even customize this stall from its original design to an armor stall, a fish stall, or anything else you think your villagers would be selling!
2. Wooden Park Bench
These park benches could be used in any Minecraft city, giving it a more civilized feeling. They can also be placed in your home to give you a place to sit and relax.
All you need is a couple of planks of your favorite wood, and you will have this park bench design up in no time. But don’t stop with just one set of benches! Add multiple benches using different wood blocks to add realism to every corner of your Minecraft world.
3. Custom Potted Plants
Adding potted plants to your Minecraft world is a great way to add some life and color to any build.
Though sometimes they can seem a little out of place as they are very much on the small side – but that’s where these custom potted plants come in.
In my opinion, they are much more appealing and since they can be adjusted, you can make them fit into whatever project you’re working on.
This is by far my favorite on this Minecraft decoration ideas list, especially the hanging basket design.
4. Contemporary Kitchen
Dump your food in your storage chest and call it a day, right? Why not let this kitchen design inspire you to add some more life to your food storage?
This kitchen not only has a sink, but it also has a stove and oven! The best part is that you can attach these designs to any interior in your world, and of course, you can readjust things however you like.
There are many different designs for kitchens, so feel free to experiment until you find the perfect one for you.
5. Armor Display Case
If you’re looking for a way to show off your armor collection, an armor display case is the perfect solution. This design is simple and easy to make, and just requires a couple of glass blocks and some trap doors for the basic design.
Oh, and a little bit of Redstone to push the glass blocks into place – if you’re not handy with Redstone, don’t worry! The above tutorial has you covered.
6. Ceiling Lamps
Next on this Minecraft decoration ideas list is lighting! If you’re looking for a more interesting way to light your home up, ceiling lamps are a great option as they can add practicality and of course some nice decor to the interior of your house.
The above tutorial provides a couple of options that can be added to almost any style of home.
7. Painting Decor
Paintings in Minecraft can be quite interesting, but after using them many times across your interior they can get pretty old pretty quickly. But if you add some decoration around them, you can give them a new lease of life.
The above design is a great example of this. You could easily experiment with your own ideas to incorporate them into your own Minecraft world too by playing around with your favorite blocks.
8. Custom Berry Bush
Berry bushes in Minecraft are a great source of food, (and especially useful if you want to breed foxes) but they can also be used for decoration too.
Whilst a berry bush on its own doesn’t look too appealing, with the above design you can incorporate leaf blocks and ferns to make the bush look a lot more interesting and realistic. Similar to what you might see in your own garden.
9. Beach Deckchairs
Trying to design your own beachfront? Why not use the beach deckchair design to complete the look and bring the whole area to life – the zone will look a lot more interesting than if you were just to have a bunch of sand and water blocks scattered everywhere.
Don’t forget to use different wood blocks to mix up the design slightly, this will help to add some variation once you add it to your own Minecraft world.
10. Water Well
Water wells are a great way to add a touch of realism to your Minecraft world, whether that’s in your survival base or in a whole village you’ve created. And they can come in handy if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get water.
The design above is a great example of how you can easily make water well using just a few stone and wood materials. But don’t worry if you don’t want to use the design provided, you can easily come up with your own version too so you can tie it into your own project.
