A Polished Stone Stair an Oak Wood Stair, and a Polished Quartz Stair

An easy way to make a chair is to use a stair. Try different kinds of stairs. Each one looks different. Do you like oak wood stairs or birch wood stairs? They are light colors. Spruce or dark oak are dark. Acacia wood is orange. Don’t forget about Warped stairs and Crimson stairs. Very colorful. Stone stairs can look like metal. And Smooth Quartz stairs look very modern!


An easy way to make a desk is just to put down three wooden or stone blocks. I think the wooden blocks make for a nice modern look. Stone block can look like metal. You can even use wool blocks or concrete blocks to make your office colorful.

Attach trapdoors to the sides of the blocks. They look like drawers or cabinets. Pretty nice, right?

Another way to make a desk is upside down stairs. You can make a long worktable next to a wall like this. Many offices, libraries, and schools have this kind of counter.

Upside stairs make a nice desk or counter. Make it long or short. Add corners if you want.

To make it look more like a desk, add two sideways stairs on the ends. That gets a bit tricky. You have to stand in front of your desk, turn to the side, and aim the cursor (+) at the top corner of the wall next to the desk. See if you can do it!

An easy way to make a computer is to add a banner to a desk. Black, white, or grey banners look the most like computers.

Banners take up two spaces. The trick is to show only the top half of the banner. To do that, place a banner in the space above and behind the middle of the desk, right where that square is. If you do it right, it’ll look like a computer screen or monitor on top of the desk.

Where to place a banner to make a computer screen

Are you good with looms? You might be able to create a pattern on the banner that looks more like a monitor!

Want to have a desktop computer or tower? Many of the white, black and grey walls look like computers if you place them on top of desks. I like the Blackstone Wall or the Diorite Wall.

To make a laptop, put a piece of grey, black, or white carpet on the top of your desk. Then on the wall behind it, add a painting.

painting plus carpet equals laptop

Now when you put a painting on a wall, it will fill up the space. So if you place a painting on a big wall, it will make a big painting. For your laptop, you want a painting that is one block big. So you need to have a wall that is one block big. You can do this before you build the rest of the wall. Or destroy part of the wall every time you make a laptop. Then rebuild it.


Here’s an idea for an office printer. Make a stack of two stone slabs. Then add a white banner behind the stack, as we did for the desktop screen above. Put a slab in front of the stack and add a white carpet above that slab!

Other Furniture

You can also add a file cabinet. Make it out of stone slabs or wooden slabs or even iron blocks. This one is eight slabs tall and two slabs wide. Add item frames on the front. Put a gate in the item frames. Now it looks like cabinet drawers with handles.

Another fun idea is a water cooler. Put down an iron block. Add a button to the front. Put a blue glass block on top.

A nice decoration to add is bookcases, and that is something that already exists in Minecraft. You also may want to add a big table or some kitchen furniture. Check out our post on Kitchen Furniture for Minecraft and Visit our Basic Minecraft for Kids page, too.
