How to Make a Door in Minecraft

For all buildings in Minecraft, doors are a fundamental requirement. There should be a door in every building, even your first one. Without one, there will be angry mobs purging in to kill. You may start going towards fancier, more customized piston-powered doors later in the game, but it's better to only stick with the simple doors for now.

The simple doors that everyone begins with are wooden. They may not be as solid as doors made of iron, but they are still sufficient. Iron doors are stronger doors that don't break as easily as wooden doors. The only drawback is that it must be prompted to unlock in some manner, such as keys, levers, and pressure plates.

- 6 Blocks of wood or iron


To obtain blocks of wood. You need logs or wood of any type from the following: Oak, Birch, Spruce, Dark Oak, Acacia, and Jungle. The fundamental method of acquiring any type of log is the same.

Q. What button do you press to open a door in Minecraft?


In Minecraft, there are three switching mechanisms that influence the doors' operation: buttons, levers, and pressure plates. Using these mechanisms makes it more easy and comfortable to use doors. Buttons are easy to build and much simpler to use. In order for it to work, the button must be adjacent to the door, or connected via redstone. A button only stays pressed for a moment, so the door will not remain open for more than a second or two.

Q. Can Zombies open doors with pressure plates?

Yes, they can. If you really want pressure plates without mobs coming in, maybe try one on the inside, but not the outside. On the outside, try putting a button. If you do, you will be able to quickly go outside, but not inside, but mobs will not be able to get in unless you let them.


Congratulations! Having a door stops mobs from entering your home uninvited or from ever entering your home at all. It is an easy and inexpensive investment to build a door for your home or hidden base, which will keep you and your possessions safe and secure. You may also rig a redstone device to cover the entrance to your secret base or treasure room if you play on a server with other individuals.
