Minecraft offers you the facility of having building blocks at your disposal, which makes creating anything imaginable a possibility. Now if you are trying to make a home in Minecraft, you need a living room because that will be the heart of your house, where you can gather with friends and spend your time or even just relax while your automatic farms are generating resources (wink). If you have a living room and not a single place to sit, is it even a living room?
So, to have somewhere to sit you need a couch or a chair. This guide will break down some of the ways players can make couches in Minecraft. Without further ado, let’s dive right in.
How to make a couch?
Stair blocks may be used to make a couch, with a sign attached to either side as its arms. Stairs facing inward could be used to build the arms of the couch. Placing two or more slabs in a row and surrounding the sides and back with blank signs creates a different style of couch. To imitate a real-world leather couch, you can use wool to make the couch instead. Here some of the designs you can implement.
Here two blocks of wool were placed vertically and joined at the rear end by more wool blocks, and at the front by stone slabs which represent the seating of the couch.
Another design is shown below:
Here the seating area is made from wool, and the arms of the couch are made from wood.
While designs like these serve decorative purposes, they lack the functionality of being able to sit. For that let’s look at another design.
Materials required to make a couch
- 8 Blocks of any Material
- 4 Rails
- 4 Minecarts
Step by step guide to making a couch
Here is the step-by-step guide you need to follow to make a couch in Minecraft:
- Place 6 Blocks in a horizontal row on the ground.
- Place a block on either end of the row serving as arms for the couch
- Place the 4 rails on the ground
- Place Minecarts on those rails.
While they may not be as aesthetically pleasing to see, they are more functional than the other designs. Another change to this couch would be to use light grey wool so that the minecarts would appear to fit in more, rather than standing out against a light coloured wool.
Furthermore, some couches can be altered to form an L-Shape to imitate a restaurant’s seating area which serves a great purpose in creative servers.
Given the flexibility Minecraft provides, any possible design of a couch can be recreated, and even some new ones introduced. The creativity of a players is reflected through the designs they can make.
Congratulations! You have successfully learnt how to make a couch. Now you can spruce up your living room with even more furniture, including fireplaces, carpets, tables and the like. Soon enough, your house will start looking organized and will be more welcoming than ever before.
