Bases are one of the most important things that Minecraft players can build in-game. They serve as a place for players to rest, build, store their items, and more. Bases can be incredibly personal.

While some players may want their bases to be strictly functional, many Minecraft players may want to add their own personal flair to their base. One way to do this is to decorate.

When it comes to decorating their bases, Minecraft players have an array of options. Not sure where to start? Here’s our list of the five best tips for decorating your base in Minecraft.


Minecraft: Top 5 tips for decorating your base

5) Use foliage

Minecraft has all sorts of plants that players can decorate with. Players can use flower pots to decorate the inside of their bases with flowers, mushrooms, and saplings. For a base’s exterior, Minecraft players can plant trees and flowers. This is good for decoration and as a source of wood and dye.

4) Don’t forget barrels

Barrels are an often overlooked storage solution in Minecraft. Unlike a chest, a barrel can be placed in single-block spaces and still be accessible to players. Minecraft players can also use barrels as walls and floors. Barrels can be crafted out of wooden slabs and planks in Java Edition or wooden slabs and sticks in Bedrock Edition.

3) Use trapdoors

Trapdoors can be used to build decorative shelves, drawers, and tables. Minecraft players can also use them to build decorative chairs. This can be done by placing a trapdoor on either side of one stair block. Players can also place trapdoors on the ends of their beds for an extra splash of personality.

2) Waterlogged campfires

While Minecraft players can use campfires for cooking, light, and signaling, this block also has its merits as a decorative block. Extinguished campfires have a lattice-like appearance, and players can use them to decorate roofs, bridges, and more. Players can extinguish a campfire by waterlogging the block, by clicking with a shovel, or by using a splash bottle on it.

1) Use block variants

When building with materials such as stone and deepslate, players can alternate between several of the block’s variants. This is especially useful for floors, roofs, and walls, as using block variants can help to break up the monotony of a build.
